Thai media reported yesterday that the two Israelis involved in the revenge killing of a man on Koh Samui in broad daylight on Sunday had apologized to the Thai people for damaging the image of tourism.
They also asked the Thais not to criticize Israelis for what happened.
Yesterday Dolev Zuarez, 23, and Eyal Bokal, 25 were taken to Chaweng Beach by the Samui International Hospital for a reenactment. They were wearing balaclavas and bullet proof vests and accompanied by a lawyer appointed by the Israeli embassy and an interpreter.
There was a ,large crown of spectators including foreign tourists to watch the spectacle.
Dolev pointed to the spot where he had used a knife to stab 34 year old Mallil to death. The victim’s girlfriend Rashel Oshana, 31, was also grievously injured after Eyal drove a CRV at their motorcycle.
Eyal denies being involved in the stabbing and did not take part in the reconstruction of that part of the crime.
It was earlier reported that the suspects had traveled to Thailand after the victim had tried to run them down and fired at them. He was reportedly given a 20 month sentence.
Speaking before the reenactment the two suspects said that they were sorry to the Thai people in general and the citizens of Koh Samui in particular for doing a bad thing and damaging the image of tourism in the country. They also asked the Thais not to blame Israelis in general.
The pair were arrested in Bangkok at an airport following the crime.
