Phuket newsman Wisut 'Ae Inside' Tangwitthayaporn (right) meets Wichai Phraisa-ngop about the red-shirt movement in Phuket in 2009. Mr Wichai was Phuket Governor at the time, and is now a Phuket Senator.
A Phuket newsman was shot dead by a man riding pillion on a motorbike on Thursday morning. Wisut “Ae Inside” Tangwitthayaporn, 40, was driving with his wife to Provincial Hall in Phuket Town when the ambush was sprung.
He had just pulled out of the entrance of Srisuchart Grandview onto Thepkrasattri Road and was intending to make a U-turn on the main road when a motorbike with two riders cut him off and forced him to stop in the middle of the southbound lane.
The unidentified gunman then fired four shots through the windshield of Mr Wisut’s Honda Jazz, striking Mr Wisut in the chest.
Mr Wisut, owner and editor of Inside Phuket newspaper and editor of Phuket E-news, was a well-known member of the red-shirt community in Phuket and is known to have participated in the red-shirt demonstrations in Bangkok a year ago.
