Thai police have arrested former Governor Joel Reyes and former Mayor Mario his brother, over murder committed in the Philippines in 2011. The two brothers were politicians who were running a mining company whose activities were opposed by anti-corruption crusader the late Dr. Gerry Ortega. They are reported to have hired a gunman who killed Dr. Ortega over environmental dispute.  The two, part of   group called “the big five”, including Army Maj-General Jovito Palparan, Globe Asiatique developer Delfin Lee and former Dinagat Island Representative Ruben Ecleo Jr; have been on the run after they are said to have entered Thailand illegally way back in 2012.
