    Australian expat charged with murder

    PHUKET: Lawyers aim to apply for bail today for Australian expat Mark Pendlebury, charged with murder over the death of a security guard after a fight outside a Phuket nightclub early yesterday.

    Video Supports Aussie Facing Patong Murder Charge: Phuket Lawyers to Seek Bail - Phuket Wan


    I have met Mark a couple of times and have been on his Sailing tour.

    Hopefully the video will help him.

    An odd piece of journalism indeed. I wouldn't want to be relying on a remote grainy video.

    Why does he "Owe his life" to a couple of Indian tourists if he was standing over the road, moved closer to the melee then when confronted he backed off?

    Moral if any, Never, ever put your nose in thai on thai altercations and especially never right there in front of Taipan where all the tuktuk mafia drivers hang out.

    Hope it works out for Mark and he can get on with his life.
    And where the hell was Biggles.....?....when you needed him last Saturday....?

    Well... he did stab and kill a security guard that was trying to stop him from taking a video of a dispute between Security and some tourists. I think he even admitted to that at least. But still... common sense would dictate that if a Thai is getting agitated with you the best thing to do is avoid confrontation... not pull a knife.
    Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.

    I thought I read/heard, a report here, he poked his nose in, and the security bloke took to him? the Indian blokes shepherded him across the road? He reckoned it was self defence.... *shrug* Guess time will tell I spose...

    Yeah he is pretty silly, especially for a bloke that has been around the joint for a long time

    He's a sailor, I imagine carrying a knife is habit?

    On the video it shows like 5+ guys chasing him. I don't think the guard came up to him, asked him to stop, and he stabbed him. It looks more like he was backing away from the guard, but was followed by a mob of Thais chasing him. I presume it was at that point he took out the knife to defend himself from the mob (can't see that part though). Would make more sense than him just pulling a knife and stabbing a guard because he asked him to stop filming.

    Had he been wearing his usual "Sailor cap" he would have been mistaken for a Russian tourist and escaped any serious attention. But was he really "Three sheets to the wind?".

    ^ you can see the screen light up on his phone when he first crosses the road?
    it looked a little like they didn't want him in particular filming as it looked like others were doing the same.

    very silly man to stick his beak.
