Suwat Apaipak, former lawyer for slain businessman Akeyuth Anchanbutr, announced on Wednesday he will no longer be involved in the murder case over fears for his safety.
Mr Suwat said he would not dig into the case anymore, claiming he had received death threats on a daily basis and that Akeyuth's relatives were also concerned about their safety and had told him to stay away from the case.
