Summary of Facts and Candlelight Vigil Day 4
Dec 16, 2015 — As we roll into day 4 of the candlelight vigil started by this amazing facebook group that I encourage you all to join
we have been overwhelmed by the amount of support shown with pictures and posts demanding justice for Wai, Hannah, David and Zaw.
If you are like me and you do not have many candles lying around, please show your support by sharing any messages of support that you can. Even if you can light just one candle or post just one message during the 12 days, It is very much appreciated.
Below is a great summary by another facebook supporter of the facts of the trial, and why we are all so upset at the blatant cover up and constant miscarriages of justice seen in this case.

Official questioning of the suspects was flawed and
unprofessional. Questions were raised by the witnesses
about ethnic biases on the part of the translators. The
embassy interpreter, who said that he handled most translations
for cases like this, said the quality of the work done by the two
unofficial translators was low quality and unprofessional.
Mr Stephen Cole from Acume Forensics has confirmed
that Wai Phyo could not be the so-called running man seen
in the ‘selective’ CCTV footage collected by Koh Tao police.
Thank you again for all your support, and lets keep on sharing the light by sharing these facts and continuing to demand the release of Wai and Zaw and a real investigation into the horrible murders of David and Hannah.
