Several readers of this blog, particularly the LM victims, have probably heard of Andrew Drummond, as he published Martyn Terpilowski’s LM Emails on his website at the same time that I published them here. Drummond, based in Thailand, is well-known for exposing expat conmen.
It has been brought to my attention that, yesterday, there appeared on his website a statement announcing that he is leaving Thailand, headed for the UK, after receiving repeated violent threats against himself and his family.
The statement is here: British Journalist Quits Thailand after 25 Years – Statement (Andrew-Drummond.com)
The story is also in the Phuket Wan Tourism News: “Drummond Heads for Britain Warning Expat Crooks They Haven’t Won Yet“.
For some context on the situation, readers may find the following articles illuminating:
“Thai Law Allows Expat Crooks to Escape But Punishes Journalists” (Phuket Wan Tourism News)
“Thailand a Haven for Foreign Criminals — Surely Not” (Andrew-Drummond.com)
I am not sure how long Drummond plans to continue publishing articles on his website, but he did publish one new article after announcing that he was leaving.
