Anonymous Hacks 14 Thai Police Websites to Protest Flawed Murder Investigation

On September 15, 2014, two British back papers, Hannah Witheridge, 23 and David Miller, 24, were killed on the Thai Island of Koh Tao.

Soon after the crime, Thai police arrested two Myanmar migrant workers, which a Thai court sentenced to death in December 2015.

According to a 37-minutes-long video posted on YouTube and Facebook, the Anonymous hacker collective has taken responsibility for cyber-attacks against 14 Thai police websites. Affected websites include the Bangkok Metropolitan Police Bureau, the General Staff Division of Royal Thai Police, and numerous regional police stations. Hackers broke into Thai police Web servers and left a message on each one saying: "Failed Law. We Want Justice! #BoycottThailand."
