“We have already interviewed 40 witnesses including teachers and students of the Armed Forces Academies Preparatory School [AFAPS],” said committee chairman ACM Chawarat Marungruang on Thursday. Supreme Commander General Thanchaiyan Srisuwan on November 23 assigned Chawarat to head the investigation after the death of Phakhapong “Meay” Tanyakan captured national attention. Last month, Phakhapong’s family came forward to demand a transparent probe into the death of Phakhapong, a first-year student, whose body showed signs of blunt force trauma. Chawarat said on Thursday that his committee would chronicle what happened before Phakhapong’s death based on the testimony they had heard. He added that his committee had not seen the results of scientific tests conducted by Phramongkutklao Hospital and the Central Institute of Forensic Science.
