There is a Spanish guy, Artur Segarra, who is the prime suspect in the murder of a compatriot (David Bernat) in Thailand. Rather gruesome stuff, I understand.
Artur Segarra has been in the Spanish authorities’ “most wanted” list since last May for fraud and financial crimes. He went abroad and disappeared, only to resurface in Thailand in a rather spectacular way.
I understand that he was finally arrested in Cambodia and extradited back to Thailand.
What would he be looking at in terms of possible penalty in Thailand if he is found guilty of the murder? Death? Life in prison?
I wonder if Spain will bother asking for him to be extradited there. If he is found guilty of murder, I would guess that fraud is a rather lesser crime in comparison. Also, maybe they might think that they don’t want to bother keeping him in jail in Spain.
Just musing about this case. It has made quite a bit of noise in Spain.
