Discovery Of Corpse On Sattahip Beach Prompts Local Seafood Boycott

The discovery of a dead body washed up on a beach in Sattahip Bay has resulted in locals boycotting seafood sellers in the area. So alarmed were the local female seafood sellers at their inability to sell their produce that they asked the media to put a news clampdown on the finding of the dead body and PDN has respected their wishes, publicizing the discovery one day later.

Sattahip, March 11, 2010, [Pattaya Daily News]: At 10 am, on 10 March 2010, the naval commander at Sattahip, Vice Admiral Kanut Thongphol, received notification relayed via the naval chain of command that a local Navy sergeant had found a corpse washed up on Kram Beach, Sattahip. A navy team and volunteers from the Rojanatham foundation were sent out into Sattahip Bay to conduct further investigations.

Apparently, Sergeant Winut Thongbutr, 29, found the body of a male, dressed in blue jeans and a long-sleeved T-shirt, but with no identification papers on him to indicate his age or nationality. The assumed time of death was approximately two weeks ago and the body was later taken to Sattahip Hospital to discover the cause of death.

It is assumed that the body could be that of a crew member of a fishing boat who may possibly have been murdered or who fell into the sea and, not being able to swim, drowned.

The boycott on seafood sold at the vegetable market in Sattahip was because locals were concerned that fish, crabs, shrimp, shellfish and marine animals could have eaten parts of the body and somehow become contaminated!
