Dolev Zuarez and Eyal Bokal confessed to carrying out the killing, which was caught on security cameras as the pair first rammed their victim with a jeep and then chased him down a street to fatally stab him.
Bokal’s family told journalists they were considering appealing to the Israeli Justice Ministry to ask that the two be transferred to Israel to serve their sentence in their home country.
The incident took place on the resort island of Koh Samui, and footage released later showed Malul riding a motorbike with his wife on the passenger seat as a vehicle crashes into them from behind. The passenger is then seen getting out of the car and approaching Malul, who was trying to help his wife. Malul took off down the street but was then hit again by the vehicle as it reversed down the road after him. The passenger, catching up with Malul, then stabbed him. Malul was taken to a hospital in Bangkok, but resuscitation efforts failed. His wife was wounded, but no details were provided as to the extent of her injuries.
