Construction Worker Stabbed Over 'Political Argument'

(25 November) Pattaya police say a construction worker has been stabbed by his colleague after the two argued bitterly about the ongoing political turmoil.

Responding to reports of fights, the police arrived at a worker residence behind Jomthien Complex in Banglamung district, Chonburi province, where Mr. Daomrong Thanonsilpa, 37, waited for the officers, his neck and body covered in blood.

According to Mr. Damrong, a native of Buriram province, he invited a fellow construction worker called Jo to his room to drink after work. Their discussion later turned to the anti-government protests taking place in Bangkok, Mr. Damrong said, and the two started to argue loudly.

His colleague eventually scolded him for his political opinion and stabbed him with a knife before fleeing the scene, Mr. Damrong said. The wounded man later called police.

Police said they have made a notification about the case and is searching for Jo to be prosecuted.
