A Singaporean living in Thailand who wrote e-mail threatening to assassinate Prime Minister Goh Chok Tong has been described by the Thai police chief as mentally ill, while an intelligence source said the suspect was running from the law.
Police commissioner General Sant Sarutanond described suspect Kevin Tia as being mentally ill, because he does not make much sense when he speaks.
Gen Sant said an initial investigation suggested Tia acted alone in making the threat.
An intelligence source said Tia had lived in Thailand for the past two years.
He described Tia as a person who has an axe to grind with Singapore and had been linked to a number of scams in the republic. The Nation/Asia News Network
