The Central Institute of Forensic Science of the Justice Ministry has been assigned to conduct CT scan3D of the body of former Phuket land official Thawatchai Anukul this Friday to examine its bone structure without an autopsy, said Mr Visit Visitsora-ath, director-general of the Juvenile Observation and Protection Department, on Tuesday.
Although the fact-finding committee has received the autopsy report from authorities concerned, he admitted that the actual cause of the victim’s death still could not be ascertained as more examinations are needed, hence the CT scan3D examination.
The fact-finding panel, he added, will need another 15 days to wrap up its findings, said Mr Visit who heads the committee.
He disclosed there are two subcommittees to aid the committee in the investigation � one working on pathological report and the other involving legal affairs which include compilation of evidences and witness accounts.
He however said that the committee had already obtained initial report on the cause of the ruptured liver but it still required interpretation of the report from experts.
The committee has invited five medical experts from Royal College of Surgeons to give counselling. They are Dr Prinya Thaweechaikarn, Dr Preecha Sirithongthavorn, Dr Rathplee Park-ath, Dr Sopon Krisnarangsan and Dr Prinya Kunawuth.
