A G4S security guard has appeared in court in Glasgow charged with murdering a Thai woman at a conference held at the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre (SECC).
Clive Carter, 34, was accused of murdering 42-year-old Khanokporn Satjawat on 12 November. He allegedly struck her on the head andbody with a weapon in the female toilets on the second floor of the SECC’s Clyde Auditorium.
Satjawat was a manager at global pharmaceutical company Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMS) and was attending the HIV treatment conference when she was found at 2.30pm.
Carter, of Motherwell, appeared at the city’s sheriff court 14 November. Defence solicitor Diarmid Bruce said his client made no plea or declaration and was remanded in custody pending further examination.
According to the HeraldScotland, Satjawat posted a photograph of a presentation within the auditorium on her Facebook page at 9.15am on the day she died.
A spokesperson for the SECC confirmed it had been informed about the charges laid against a man in relation to the death of a female visitor at its premises on 12 November.
“We are continuing to work closely with Strathclyde Police and assisting them in their ongoing investigation. At this time our thoughts and condolences are with the family, friends and colleagues of Khanokporn Satjawat,” the spokesperson said.
Delegates came from many countries to the conference, which ends Thursday 15 November. All were questioned by police. Organiser of the conference, the KnowledgePoint360 Group, has yet to comment on the death.
