Normally we don't list assistant referees (not enough time) but Thanom Borikut is something else. This international assistant to for instance Malayan referee Subkhiddin Mohd Saleh, killed his boss with a bomb in 2009.
Borikut was for instance assistant referee in the 2008 AFC Champions League final between Gamba Osaka and Adelaide United.
Thanom Borikut was seen on cctv planting a bomb in the office of his boss - the director of the educational department. When arrested Borikut told the police he hated his boss who didn't treat him fairly and often refused to give him time off to officiate international matches.
It's not easy to know exactly what went on in cases like this one. The how and the why. Sout-East Asian football can be very corrupt. Getting on the FIFA list of your South-East Asian country could mean money having changed hands or favours having been cashed in or promised. We don't know the problems Thanom Borikut was in, if he was. We can only speculate.
Despite having committed this murder, Borikut is still on the FIFA list as assistant referee in 2012.
