I think that by your publishing on your site a copy of a personal appeal to this guy, you have put him in a very uncomfortable position..ie he may not care for you or about this issue tho' i'm certain that he has indeed got full knowledge of it, but now you have made it public, he really has no alternative but to respond to you.

Has it ever occurred to you that perhaps you should keep your opinion to yourself, Andre? Unless you have some specific knowledge of Mr Heinecke, all you are doing is doomsaying and grandstanding at the same time, a balancing act you fail to achieve. As professional journalists, we are trained to not give two hoots about opinions based on guesswork and ignorance. In your case, make that one hoot. You're the desperate one.
One vital rule for any foreigner in Thailand. Don't pick a fight with a Thai.

The rule is actually not to pick fights with anyone, Gee. Perhaps you move in different circles. It's also worth noting that the biggest physical danger to foreigners comes from other foreigners. ''Picking fights'' is an imported problem.
Whilst I can sympathize with your situation, I personally think approaching investors to try and join your cause will not work, after all they are here as capitalists not sympathizers to freedom of speech. Naturally if they do get involved, or even suggest to support your campaign, it could have an impact on their investment. The main problem is that the international arena is already seasoned by Thailand's appauling record on human rights, and of course the public view on journalists (especially foreigners) in general,

Bill Heinecke is a Thai and our appeal is being made to the Thai business community.
They are gonna crucify you next week. Happy Easter. Happy Songkran.

This was the most publishable comment of your last 24 comments, scunner. And look at the company you are in.

You're a total fool, Andre. William Heineke is a Thai and proud to call himself one. Your comments are ridiculous. Go away, please.

I have no interest in your opinion of me or the way this site is moderated. Stick to the issues raised in the article or waste the time of others elsewhere.
Having known and worked with Bill Heinecke and Minor for around 20 years I can certainly understand your appealing to him. He is someone who has in the past taken a strong stand for what he believes in and is well respected throughout the Kingdom and internationally.

PW journalists have been excellently working for the oppressed people like plights of Rohingyas who are know as world more persecuted ethnics . They deserve ever conscious people recognition and appreciation . Their job is holy to us . We wish success of false defamation case plotting against them. Human trafficking becomes a bit collapse due to the PW's bravely exposing .
