FROM ANDREW DRUMMOND,
'We have been advised by the police to move location every three days. I have been told to change my phones and SIM cards and not to contact anyone who could be remotely connected with this,' he said at a secret location in South Thailand.'I am virtually penniless. But what I cannot ever come to terms with is what happened to my children. They have nightmares every night and wake up screaming. They are reliving what happened to them in the well.'
xcept for one or two nights we never slept together. We slept on different floors from the off.
"There was never a relationship From day one Nittaya slept on the 3rd floor of the house I had my own apartment on the 2nd floor."
'When I bought the properties I did everything correct, in fact doubly correct. This could only have happened with the help of corrupt lawyers, officials and criminals.'
'Daire, like Jessie is an Irish citizen. I was disgusted at my government's attitude. An MP even raised my case and got lies back from the Irish government indicating they were doing what they could.'

'I still cannot come to terms with this. How can anybody do this to children?' said Mr. Vard.'They were left in the bottom of a 15 metre well for two days in shallow water. They were padlocked in. They could do nothing but scream and cry. They heard passing cars but nobody could hear them.

'They were stuck in the well with big centipedes and all sorts of other insects. Every night now they still wake up screaming.
'They were rescued by my gardener who heard their screams, broke the padlock, pulled them out, and took them to his own home.'
Said Dublin born Jessie: 'Nittaya called me to come to the well. When I got there Nittaya threw me into the well but I fell across it. She pushed me down with her feet. Then a couple of minutes later I heard Dang (pictured right) shouting 'Die!' and Daire fell on top of me.
'They put the cover on the well. We cried and screamed for what seemed like two days in the water at the bottom of the well. Then we heard someone and we started shouting again. That's when the gardener got us out.'
'There are good and bad people in every country. Foreigners coming to Thailand seeking to date local woman should be careful. They should check the background.
"Most foreigners looking for a woman, have relationships with girls from bars. Some of them are good, maybe 10 or 20 per cent, but most are not.'
