LOCATION OF TRIAL
Two defendants, being members of the staff of Nakon Nyok POW camp, were charged for ill-treatment of POWs that resulted in the deaths of a number of named British POWs - Private Chittock and Tuton, Driver Weir, and Lance Bombardier Gardiner. These named British POWs were subsequently removed from the charge when the court issues its findings.
For more information see:
The defence argued that the court should not believe everything said by the British POWs as true because they are British - appears to indicate some fear of bias.
