BTS Death A Suicide

Bangkok police say French journalist and embassy deputy spokesman Arnaud Jean-Claude Dubus committed suicide by jumping from a BTS station platform Monday.

The 56-year-old author and deputy information officer died of a severe head wound below the Saphan Taksin station. Police, who have not concluded their investigation yet, said he had suffered from depression and complained recently about work stress.

Dubus moved to Thailand in 1989, working as a journalist and commentator for Radio France Internationale, Liberation, Le Temps and TV 5. In 2018, he took the embassy post. He authored several books, including the recent “Buddhism and Politics in Thailand”.

“A gentle and modest person, Arnaud was thoughtful, well informed, and always exceptionally considerate toward others,” the Foreign Correspondents Club of Thailand said in a statement.

Police said he arrived at the BTS station via motorbike purchased a ticket and was seen climbing over the railing at Exit 3. His body was found five minutes later.
