    StanChart suspect still in Thailand

    BANK robbery suspect David James Roach is still being held at an immigration detention centre in Bangkok, a week after he was detained by Thai police for allegedly making off with some $30,000 from Standard Chartered bank in Singapore on July 7.

    According to Thai immigration police chief Nathathorn Prousoontorn, police are still waiting for a court decision on whether the Canadian national can be extradited to Singapore to face charges.

    But as the Kingdom is having a public holiday from today to Wednesday, any decision may happen only after that.
