|Cooper - case dismissed.|
Pattaya Provincial Court this week dismissed a Computer Crimes Act case against expat oil man Alastair Stuart Cooper.
Cooper was jointly indicted with fugitive journalist Andrew Michael Drummond in a case filed by Drew Noyes but Cooper filed an application saying that the documents had not been served according to Thai law, and the Court made an order for a new preliminary hearing to be held.
Cooper claimed he was not resident in Thailand.
At the new hearing, Noyes as Plaintiff did not appear and the Court dismissed the case.
|Drummond - on the run.|
Drummond has not made any application and the case against him remains valid, and he has an outstanding warrant for his arrest and remains a wanted fugitive after absconding whilst on bail in January of 2015.
Lawyers for Noyes have indicated that Noyes will appeal the decision to the Region 2 Court of Appeal, and may file further charges.
