Autopsy to determine cause of Ukraine ambassadors death in resort off Satun


The Central Institute of Forensic Science (CIFS) will perform an autopsy on Monday to find the cause of death of Ukraine ambassador to Thailand, Andrii Beshta.

Foreign Ministry spokesperson Thani Saengrat said that Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha had instructed related authorities to take utmost care in the matter.

"CIFS director Pol Colonel Songsak Raksaksakul would personally oversee the autopsy," he said.

Beshta died on Sunday morning while vacationing with his son at Bunga Resort in Lipe island off Satun province. The ambassador was 45 years old.

A report by Koh Lipe Police Station said that the ambassador had possibly died due to acute heart failure.

The ambassador's body was taken to the Police General Hospital in Bangkok at 2.30am before being sent to the CIFS for an autopsy.
