The killing of David Bernat
What is happening in our world! Torturing, dismembering a Decent Human Being for a lousy 37 million baht. David Bernat was a smart, well educated “MBA from one of the best schools in the world”, well paid on top of his field. He wasn’t in a gang or a drug dealer. He worked hard for his money and made an honest living as a Telecom Consultant. He didn’t deserve to die like that.
Artur Segarra Princep, 36, has been named as a suspect of the murder of 39-year-old David Bernat, whose remains were found floating in the river this past weekend. Artur Princep Segarra, received Bt37 million from Bernat’s account in a Singaporean bank. Segarra later withdrew the money from ATMs in different locations in Bangkok and Ayutthaya’s Wang Noi district. They are from Spain.
On Saturday Surin police questioned Pritsana Saen-ubon, 22, who was seen with Artur Segarra in Surin on Friday and claimed he had fled the country after seeing his picture on the TV news.
The suspect Artur Segarra Princep, 36, was arrested on Sunday evening at a restaurant in the Cambodian coastal town of Sihanoukville, 246 kilometres southwest of Phnom Penh, where he had checked into a guesthouse a few days earlier.
Royal Thai Police Chief Chakthip Chaijinda will fly to the border with Cambodia’s Koh Kong province this morning to arrest Segarra from the Cambodian authorities.
Thai Royal Police said they will file charges against Pridsana since she was involved in withdrawing money that belonged to Bernat.
