Calling Card woman allegedly Stabbed to death
In 2005 the news published a story reporting that she was stabbed 11 times and died in Chonburi Province. Her name has been removed from the Civil Registration. She was shocked by the information that implied she was supposed to be dead.
Mrs. Waruni has no ID card and no rights left in her name. She can’t get a new ID card and just decided to let the issue pass by.
A neighbor revealed to Thai media that Mrs. Waruni is telling the truth. She’s considered a dead person with no name in the Civil Registry. Her relatives have tried reporting the issue but they still weren’t able to make her a new ID card. After a while they’ve let the issue go.
Consequently even though Waruni drinks every day, she still has a perfect memory. Although she is drunk almost all the time, she knows that it wasn’t her who was stabbed 11 times.
Orachai Potplat the village chief has accepted the issue and will also be working with the District to fix her ID issue.
