'The pile of injustice in Thailand and the FBI from America is way too high for a 78 year old lady to cope with.'
That Greg Miller was fitted up on several charges is a given. A retrial was ordered and six out of seven child sexual abuse charges were dismissed and five out of seven kidnapping charges were dismissed.
In any civilized country in the world there would have been an inquiry into what went wrong. Instead his sentence was reduced from 38 years to 25.
That’s essentially a death sentence in a Thai jail for an unfit person.
Whether there some substance to the police enquiry I do not know. But in these cases there is always an incentive – mainly from foreign governments.
To arrest someone falsely on a child sexual abuse charge in today’s context means that you take that person’s life away. He becomes an unemployable friendless pariah.
Had Miller got bail it would have ruined his mother but he would have had access to treatment and medicines and would most likely have survived.
This is what Mrs. Barbara Fanelli Miller:
“With my broken heart, and trembling hands I write this. My only son is gone and I loved him tremendously. I can fight no longer. Nothing will bring Greg home.
“To save myself, I have to be done with this nightmare and try to focus ahead for me and it is what Greg would want me to do. I can fight no longer.
“The pile of injustice in Thailand and the FBI from America is way too high for a 78 year old lady to cope with.
"I have been over my head for a very long time and I'm exhausted from treading water. I'm done.”The injustice in Thailand?

A civil court has already ordered Goudie to pay 7.8 million baht in compensation to Mrs. Miller out of the almost US$300,000 he took off her claiming he would set her son free and sue police to high heaven.
But her lawyers were unable to get the order enforced and have fallen for just about all of Goudie’s tricks even to the extent of lifting a court order allowing him to sell a property.
#BrianGoudie is on trial for posing as a barrister and a former officer in the Royal Marines to cheat Mrs. Miller out of cash. In his defence he has produced David Hanks, a Scot-Australian, born in Girvan to lie on the stand and say he saw Goudie give the cash to his assistant, his then Thai girlfriend called Nang.
The trial is coming to a close.

But it’s not just the local system to blame. Foreign embassies see these thing happening every day. They know who their criminals are. They know when their countrymen are the victims of injustice. But they hide behind the standard reply: ‘We cannot interfere in the justice system of another country’. It was not always that way of course.
