Protesting the murder of two British backpackers, the cyber activists have hacked into the country’s justice system
Anonymous has declared a new cyberwar on Thai police, to protest the unjust murder verdicts served to two Myanmar migrant workers.
The hacktivist group – who are currently in the midst of a hefty online battle against Isis – shut down a series of websites linked to Thailand’s justice system. According to information published by the group, the move was a direct response to the “scapegoating” of two Burmese men, who had been convicted of killing two British backpackers in 2014.
“Anonymous has learned that the Thai police have accused innocent people before,” revealed a representative in a Facebook post. “(They) would rather blame foreigners or migrants for such crimes so as to protect their tourism industry then accuse their own Thai locals, that may deter tourists from choosing Thailand as their holiday destination.”
Fifteen websites were infiltrated during the attack, with seven being shut down. They were replaced instead with a black screen that read: “Failed Law. We want Justice. #BoycottThailand.”

“Our findings are disgusting as we have discovered some very ugly corruption involving the Royal Thai Police and their lack of skills and competency with professional investigating serious crimes.”
Burmese migrants Zaw Lin and Wai Phyo were sentenced to death on Christmas Eve last year, after they were accused of murdering Hannah Witheridge and David Miller – two British backpackers who were visiting the country in September 2014. Despite initially confessing to the crimes, both Lin and Phyo eventually went on to rescind their statements: saying that they have been tortured by police to make false statements. Since this, many questions have been raised over the credibility of the forensic teams and DNA evidence.
“We do not like the facts in this recent Koh Tao case and we do not believe the Thai court has convicted the actual murderers of the crime,” they concluded. “Anonymous calls for this case to be reinvestigated with credible forensic specialists.”
