Rodolfo Sancho and Silvia Bronchalo want to rent a permanent home in Thailand

This Monday began the third week since Daniel Sancho pleaded guilty to the death and dismemberment of surgeon Edwin Arrieta in Thailand. Her mother, Silvia Bronchalo, landed in the country last Wednesday to visit her son in the Koh Samui prison and her father, actor Rodolfo Sancho, will arrive in a few days. Both are managing the rent of a house in the area to be able to be close to their son as much time as possible.

Daniel’s mother is staying at the hotel for the moment Samui Bayview Resort, one of the most exclusive on the island. Its price is 50 euros per day, including breakfast, and it is only 20 minutes from the prison where Daniel awaits his trial. As the Thai prosecutor advanced, this could be delayed until the end of the year due to the police investigation, so the family would be managing the rental of a house that they would turn into the “headquarters” for all those who want to visit Daniel in the upcoming weeks. Let us remember that the prisoner facilitated a list with the ten people who could access itincluding her parents, her grandmother Noela, uncles and some friends.

According to Diego Arrabal, Silvia Bronchalo’s decision to temporarily settle in Koh Samui is firm and has already been communicated to the Spanish Embassy.

For his part, Rodolfo Sancho continues in Fuerteventura with his wife, Xenia Tostado, and their 8-year-old daughter. His spokespersons announced that he had not yet moved to Thailand because “he has many administrative and bureaucratic issues” to solve in Spain and the rental of a home, as well as the opening of a bank account that facilitates access to money for both Daniel and themselves, they could be one of them.

Death penalty

Let us remember that the Thai police have requested the death penalty for Daniel Sancho considering that the murder of Edwin Arrieta was premeditated and not accidental, as he stated. The Spanish defense hopes to be able to commute said sentence to a life sentence that, as the Spanish diplomat Vicente Cacho advanced, would serve in the Surat Thani prison, a provincial prison much less rigid than the feared ‘Hilton Bangkok’.

Here, Daniel would have to spend a minimum of eight years before his extradition to Spain could be requested to serve the rest of the punishment in his country of origin.
