Our referee for Saturday is the same referee from our home game at Osotspa M150 last year when I got a message in a bottle. The following article is from the Bangkok Post in 2009:
Referee arrested for bomb murder
A top referee has been arrested for alleged murder, police said yesterday.
Thanom Borikut, a contender to officiate at the 2010 World Cup, was arrested in Saraburi yesterday for allegedly killing his boss Thammanoon Prathumman with a bomb. A man was captured on CCTV planting a bomb which later exploded and killed Thammanoon, a director at Saraburi's education department. Police said Thanom, an official at the department, confessed to planting the bomb on Thursday. Thanom said he had conflict with Thammanoon who he claimed did not give him fair treatment and often barred him from officiating overseas as a Fifa referee, according to police. Football Association of Thailand president Worawi Makudi said it would be a pity if Thanom was found guilty because he was a candidate to officiate at next year's World Cup.
