Cambodian couple demand Thai cops probe

A Cambodia couple engaged in a legal battle with relatives yesterday filed a complaint against two Thai police officers in Bangkok
 

Baby-clothing exporter Sing Thea, 43, and his wife Chean Kallyan said their previous accusation, that their relatives had embezzled Bt18 million, had been handled by the Thai officers in question. 

 

This had resulted in a counter-suit against the couple, who were then charged with filing a false police complaint and each had to pay a Bt140,000 bail bond. 

 

“Despite the fact that we are the cheated victims, we have no money left to invest in our business and are now facing the false-complaint lawsuit too,” the couple said yesterday.

“It made me angry that the cheaters stole our money so they could hire others to help them get away with the wrongdoing,” said Chean. 

 

“And I, a victim, end up being a criminal-case defendant in Thailand. I didn’t do anything wrong. Please help us get justice.”

 

The couple have asked Provincial Police Region 1 commissioner Pol Lt-General Suwat Chaengyodsuk to launch an in-depth probe of the two officers, named as Pol Captain Boonthan Phanchan of Nonthaburi’s Bang Yai precinct and superintendent Pol Lt-Colonel Kritchanan Inchu of Police Region 1 Office’s complaints centre.

 

Lawyer Atchariya Ruangratanapong accompanied the couple to file the complaint. He said that Sing and his wife had in 2014 filed an embezzlement complaint with Boonthan at the Bang Yai precinct, accusing their younger relatives – Thai man Saichon Pulsawat and his Cambodian wife Phetch Salaiman – of allegedly stealing a total of Bt18 million while helping out Sing’s baby-clothing business over the previous decade. That case is still under consideration by the public prosecutor. 

 

Atchariya said Saichon and Phetch then protested their innocence to Kritchanan, claiming that the elderly Cambodian couple had wrongly accused them. 

 

He then handed over the case file to the people they were complaining about without registering it in the system.

 

Atchariya said the report was then sent to a lawyer who used to work for Kritchanan, who promptly filed a counter-suit on behalf of the Thai-Cambodian couple, accusing Sing and his wife of fabricating evidence and making a false accusation.

 

The Nonthaburi Court accepted the case for trial, making Sing and his wife criminal case defendants, Atchariya said. 

 

He urged that Kritchanan be investigated and possibly be transferred so he could no longer interfere with the case. Atchariya said that Phetch was also wanted by a Cambodian court for suspected fraud.

 

Provincial Police Region 1 deputy commander Pol Colonel Watcharin Prasopdee received the Cambodian couple’s complaint and said it would be examined as soon as possibleto see if there were grounds to launch a fact-finding investigation.

This happens time and time again to cheated foriegners in Thailand. 

The foreigner files a legitimate complaint against a Thai that cheated them of millions. The cheater buddies up with police and file a countersuit of some trumped up charge. 

The countersuit reaches court before the original case. The victim ends up in jail or broke unable to fight the original charge. 

It's very well orchestrated, and strangely enough it's usually the same prosecutor in charge of both cases and when they will get to the judge. 

Deduce from that what you like.

....and if they keep pushing the probe will be launched. And shortly after that they will find themselves in a Thai jail. If they want to get any results they need to go home, get rich quickly (before the cheaters disappear) and return with more bribe money than the cheater.

I'm thinking the victims will probably end up in jail. They should cut their losses and run now while they have the chance.
