Banglamung officials donated 100,000 baht to the family of a Bangladesh man who died after being drugged and robbed by a prostitute.

District Chief Chawalit Saeng-Uthai said the Banglamung Tourist Aid Committee also agreed to compensate two other Bangladeshis who were injured in the incident with 40,000 baht each.

Mizanur Rahman, 54, was found dead and Sanjib Saha, 59, and Harunur Rashid Munshi, 54, in a coma in their ransacked Naklua area hotel room May 13.  Beach Road prostitute Malee Jindawong, 37, was captured at the Tui Apartments on Soi Bongkot the next day.

The Bangladeshis had brought Malee back to their room about 1 a.m. and, according to the suspect, blocked the door to prevent her from leaving. Police said she confessed to drugging the men in order to escape.

Despite the tawdry circumstances, Chawalit said the committee decided to compensate the two surviving victims and the dead man’s family to help repair the area’s image overseas.

The Tourist Aid Committee, in an unrelated move, also agreed to compensate Janthapha Riebroi with 20,000 baht for a physical attack she suffered May 17.

    Sets a possibly legal precedent and could sweep the country obligating Thailand to a landslide of law suits.
    These men were engaging in an illegal activity and, should have received a stern warning or arrest. Should the family of the " 40 " baht robbery person be compensated for his death occuring during another illegal activity ?
