I think Bodin’s TV interview was already translated earlier in this thread. For Bodin’s statement to Thai people, it was his first message after the incident and was aired on TV:
“I am Bodin Issara. I have to apologize Thai people for the incident. This happened because I got hit by the racket at the ear until it ripped and bled. That made me lose my mind. I have to apologize all Thai people for defaming the nation and I solely admit all mistakes. I hope everything ends here. Thank you.”
At the time (July 22), there was just only a clip or two coming out. His manager later gave the correct sequence of happenings in the interview. (People in sport forum criticized that it's twofold shameful as Bodin obviously lied.)
On Maneepong side, a short interview was given to a CH3 tv reporter @Annanop
who reported through Twitter (July 22):
- Maneepong said the problem started just when his side had got the first point and he cheered with loud voice. Bodin asked (in vulgar language) why he made loud noise.
- Bodin gave him ‘verbal middle finger’ and challenged for a fist fight after the match. Maneepong then gave back Bodin vmf one time which made Bodin mad and challenged him throughout the game for fist fighting.
- Maneepong said Bodin shouted to his coach to set up a boxing fighting after the match. However, between changing side, Bodin punched him according to the clip.
- Referee reviewed the video playback and let his pair win. They also called the police to deal with the situation.
Now it seems BAT asked them not to give any further interview. Tomorrow BAT will have a meeting regarding the punishment and it is likely that Bodin and Maneepong are to give press conference and they will shake hands!

Badminton - Badminton brawl player suspended - report
Thai shuttler Bodin Issara has been suspended by his club Granular until the end of the year for his on-court punch-up with former doubles partner Maneepong Jongjit during Sunday's Canada Open final, local media reported on Saturday.
Reuters – 48 minutes ago
Trouble broke out in the tie between two Thai pairs after Maneepong and Nipitphon Puangpuapech bagged the first game. At the change of ends Maneepong hit Bodin with his racquet following a heated verbal exchange.
Bodin retaliated by chasing down Maneepong to a neighbouring court and rugby-tackled him to the ground before punching him several times, incurring a disqualification.

Maneepong released a post on his fb/instagram. Anyone who is friends/following him, can you translate? I don't think I can post the pic here because of privacy settings for fb.

BAT bans Bodin from local and international tournaments for life and Maneepong 6 months. However, since both of them pleaded guilty and used to bring good reputation to the country, the punishment is reduced to 2 years and 3 months respectively.
BAT’s manager and coach, Mrs. Rungnapa Pintuwat and Mr. Siripong Siripul, are banned from leading team to international tournaments for 3 months while Mr. Jane Piyatat of Granular is banned for 6 months. There is no punishment for Granular club.
Bodin and Granular got more severe punishment because they are the party that started the brawl.
Everybody concerned can appeal within 30 days. BAT will report to BWF about this decision soonest while it is expected that BWF will announce its punishment decision on August 2.
The ban will make Maneepong unable to compete in World Championship 2013 in China between August 5-11.

After the press conference, Maneepong walked towards Mrs. Yajai Issara, Bodin’s mother and made a ‘wai’ (pressing two palms together with a slight bow) making an apology. He then held Bodin’s daughter, Mini, and asked “How are you doing kid?” The reporter asked Manaeepong if Bodin is still his friend.
Maneepong paused a few seconds before answered “Yes. Now there is nothing under my mind. I forgave him. I only want him to answer questions truthfully. I haven’t talked with him personally but we communicate through the process.”

Thank you @Anatta for the information and the translation. I think I speak for many here, when I ask you to try and keep us abreast of any further news or developments in this topic, from your "sources" ( ) or the Thai media!

2 years compared to Maneepong's 3 months though. I think Maneepong should've gotten a bit more.
