Krabi governor asks all to wait for autopsy on two tourists died on Phi Phi Island

Krabi Governor Siwa Sirisaowalak said on Wendesday all sides should wait for result of investigation into the deaths of two foreign tourists on Phi Phi Island.
He was referring to an article in a newspaper written by famous columnist Nitipoom Navaratna which claimed that the tourists died of food poisoning early this month. Siwa said, “The investigation into the death has not yet completed. We have not known yet the cause of deaths. The Forensic Science Laboratory are performing an autopsy.” “Nitipoom shouldn’t speculate because it makes people confuse and the most important thing is that his article is defaming Krabi,” he added. Meanwhile Krabi’s deputy chief doctor Bancha Khakhong said samples from the dead tourists had been sent for examinations. All sides should wait for the results. More than 90 per cent of the restaurants on the island met the health standard, the doctor said.
