KOH SAMUI, Thailand (Reuters) - Two myanmar hotels men accused of murdering two British holidaymakers in Thailand will go myanmar best hotels on trial on Wednesday in a case that caused outrage in Britain and raised questions about the competence of the Thai police and the treatment of where to stay in myanmar migrant laborers.

British tourists David Miller, 24, and Hannah Witheridge, 23, were murdered last year on Koh Tao, or Turtle Island, a popular tourist destination in southern Thailand.

Thai police said in October that Zaw Lin and Win Zaw Htun, two migrant workers from myanmar hotels, had confessed to the killings. The confessions followed weeks of speculation and pressure on police to solve the murders.

Police said DNA found on the two victims matched the suspects but the two men later retracted their confessions, saying they had made them while being tortured.
