Chinese national Li Jing, 29, was the sole fatality of the Songkran road safety campaign for 2018.

Mr Li was riding a motorbike along the Kamala-Patong road at 2:30pm on Apr 14 when the motorbike collided with a pickup truck. Mr Li suffered extensive injuries and was rushed to Vachira Phuket Hospital in Phuket Town, where he was pronounced dead. Mr Li was not wearing a helmet at the time of the collision, noted the DDPM report. (See story here.)

At Phuket Provincial Hall yesterday (Apr 20), Gov Norraphat together with his wife Sudarat Plodthong, who is also President of the Phuket Red Cross, and Vice Governor Snith Sriwihok gave financial compensation to Mr Li’s father.

Gov Norraphat said, “We are sorry for Mr Li’s father and his family who arrived here yesterday (Apr 19). The money that we have given is to help towards the basic needs of the family. We have ordered officials to help his family with everything.”

The Phuket PR Office reported that Mr Li’s family thanked Phuket officials for the assistance they provided in bringing them to Phuket and that a religious ceremony will be conducted for Mr Li here in Phuket before his ashes are returned to China.

The Truth.

Well no...if one bothers to read the comments, it's the western white supremacists who find fault with Thai ways and expressing resentment. A denial of what exactly?

There appears to be a few racist commentators on this forum expressing resentment towards western society, these commentators appear to be living in denial and/or severely lacking in common sense in which case they should feel right at home in Thailand and is most probably the source of their prejudice.

“extra lame effort by bumbling officials“....  demonstrating once again that the commentary has everything to do with neo-colonialism. And for those that don’t like that term, let’s just call it an abiding belief in the superiority of the white race. Which we see in evidence on this forum every day.

Actually, this article and the gratuitous photograph, and the commentary, have nothing to do with Neocolonialism. This photo op is no example of a practice rooted in Thai custom, but rather an extra lame effort by bumbling officials to put up a facade to show that they really care. And it was an exception, and frankly sets a lame precedent for government.

"worst off than during colonial times"Yep,ask the Hereros or Namaqua from Namibia,the first nations from America or any indigenous people from south-america,Aborigines and and and what they think about colonisation! The stupidity of some Neocolonialists on here is sheer unbelievable.Thais should never listen to such a bunch of idiots!

"Really? Worse off by whose standards? Yours", instead of complaining, about others opinion, why not prove an argument against their opinion, or just prove any evidence where these African and South East Asian countries have EVER wished to return to precolonial times.. eg, no cars, no trains, no planes, no reticulated water, no hospitals, no electricity, no internet... etc etc etc.

"however it is obvious that in some countries in Africa and South East Asia people are worst off than during their countries colonial times"

Really? Worse off by whose standards? Yours?  I am struggling to find a word other than neo-colonialism to describe this attitude.  Maybe white supremacy would be more accurate.

Neo-colonialist. Like a kid with a new toy. Just can't put it down.

Can we get rid of the words.... neo colonialist/neo colonialism.?
After all we all now are born in a free world, however it is obvious that in some countries in Africa and South East Asia people are worst off than during their countries colonial times
To use the words in Thailand is funny. Here are other matters blocking development and lifting life of poor thai people, to put it nicely
