Premchai sentenced to 16 months without suspension




Billionaire construction tycoon Premchai Karnasuta was this morning (Tuesday) sentenced to 16 months in prison without suspension by the Thong Phaphume provincial court in Thailand’s western province of Kanchanburi.

Premchai and three others, namely Mr. Yong Dodkrua, Mr. Thanee Thummat and Mrs. Nathee Riamsaen, were arrested by forest ra

ngers in Thungyai Narusuan Wildlife Sanctuary in Kanchanaburi province on February 4th last year after carcasses of a panther, a barking deer and a wild fowl were found in their camp. Hunting rifles were also found.
