UK Police Risking 'Miscarriage of Justice' In Thai Murder Case

LONDON - Questions have been raised over British police support for a Thai investigation into the murders of two young Britons, which could lead to death sentences for the accused.

British police have refused to allow two young Burmese migrant workers, charged with the murders of Hannah Witheridge and David Miller, to access information about themselves that was gathered during investigations into the crime. The information on defendants Zaw Lin and Wai Phyo, which they are entitled to under the Data Protection Act, has been shared with the Thai prosecution but not with the defence.
