Spaniard and Italian arrested over Lleida businessman's brutal murder in Thailand

SUSPECTS have been taken in for questioning in connection with the murder of Spanish businessman David Bernat, whose dismembered body was found in the river in Bangkok, Thailand, at the weekend.

Bernat, 40, originally from the province of Lleida in Catalunya, who had travelled to Thailand on numerous occasions, was last seen leaving his apartment on his motorbike on Wednesday, January 20, and some of his body parts were found at the weekend, with another six pieces recovered from the river Chao Phraya, which runs through and around Bangkok.

Initial investigations show a number of transfers from Bernat's bank account were made at around the time of his death, with destinations in various parts of Thailand and also several other countries, including Singapore and Spain.

The last transfer was made in the city of Ayuthaya, to the north of Bangkok, on January 30.

But Bernat's death is estimated to have been between January 25 and 27.

This has led police to believe the victim was kidnapped and tortured into either handing over his bank details or making transfers, before being murdered and his body dismembered and distributed around the city to try to give authorities the slip.

Forensic tests have showed fragments of a belt on a part of his arm.

Two men, a Spaniard and an Italian, have been arrested, but Thai police believe there may have been some nationals of the country who knew about Bernat's fate before it happened.
