The hacker group Anonymous breached several Thai police websites to protest the conviction of two Burmese men in the 2014 murder of two British backpackers on Koh Tao island. On Wednesday, the group posted links to 15 Thai police sites and published several email addresses for police contacts. Seven of the websites were down and two links showed a screen with the words, “Failed Law. We want Justice. #BoycottThailand.” The hacks come after Zaw Lin and Wai Phyo, two Burmese migrant workers, were sentenced to death in late December for the rape and murder of Hannah Witheridge, 23, and the murder of David Miller, 24, in September 2014. The Burmese pair initially confessed to the crimes but later retracted their statements, saying they had been tortured.
