In a crime that shocked the world and caused a negative image of Thai tourism, the murderer used a .9 mm Noringo gun to brutally shoot two Russian women, Miss Svirkova Liubov aged 25 and her friend Miss Tsimfer Tatiana aged 30, who were relaxing in their deckchairs on the beach opposite Ananya Resort (Jomtien 18) Pattaya, on 25 February 2007. The terrible crime had affected Thai Tourism, especially among Russian tourists.
On 3 March 2007, Police Lieutenant General Asawin Kuanmuang, Commissoner and Police Major Genral Anan Jaruensri, with a police team, arrested Mr. Anuchit Jaruensri, or “Nung” (24), with evidence of a .9mm gun and a red and black Honda Wave, license 413, Chonburi, which he had used in the commission of the heinous crime. Police General Sereephisut Tae-Meyawet, the Police Commissioner, personally questioned the perpetrator. Mr. Anuchit confessed that he was attempting to rob the two women, but decided to kill them because they saw his face.

On 3 September 2007, at 9 AM, Judge Prateep Thab-Attanon read his verdict to Mr. Anuchit Lumlert, who calmly awaited his fate. Mr. Anuchit’s cousins, the victims’ parents and representatives of the Russian Consulate were present to hear the verdict.

The reading of the verdict included the fact that Mr. Anuchit had confessed to the crimes, as well as, the presence of incriminating evidence found at the scene. The charges were: intentional murder, hiding evidence and escaping, attempted robbery, consuming class 5 drugs (Yah Bah) and carrying a gun in public without permission. The confession did not get Mr. Anuchit a reduced sentence because of his extensive criminal record. In addition, the crime was extremely vicious and resulted in a bad image for Thailand. Therefore, the defendant was given the ultimate penalty.

Upon hearing his fate, Mr. Anuchit turned pale, shook violently and held onto his parents, Mr. Suchart and Mrs. Sathaporn Lumlert. He said “Not to worry.” He also said that he deserved the sentence.

Mr. Anuchit said that killing the two women was a very serious crime. He regretted what he did. He wanted to warn everyone not to engage in criminal behavior. It is never too late to change bad behavior. He realized that the death sentence was inevitable. However, he will consult with his cousins before deciding if he should appeal.

After the reading of the verdict, Mr. Anuchit was taken to the Pattaya Court jail and placed under a suicide watch. Later, he will be transferred to Bang-Kwang Jail. If he does not appeal within thirty days, the court will present the case to the Appeals Court. If the Appeals Court doesn’t reduce the verdict, Mr. Anuchit will be executed by lethal injection within sixty days.

Mr. Tsimfer Vacili, (51), the father of one of the victims, declared that he was quite satisfied with the verdict. He felt that justice was served. Mr. Anuchit apologized to the people of Pattaya for the terrible crime and for harming Pattaya tourism’s reputation.
