PHUKET:-- The Phoenix tour boat, which sank off Phuket in July last year killing 47 Chinese tourists, remains unsold after an auction in May drew no bids as the Anti-Money Laundering Office spends more than B100,000 a month to store it.
 

Following the disaster on July 5, 2018, raids led to the discovery that the operators of the boat had laundered more than B1 billion. This, in turn, led to the seizure of assets which are being auctioned off by the Anti-Money Laundering Office (Amlo).

 

An official at the Amlo’s trade department said, “The Phoenix tour boat is still at the Rattanachai Shipyard. On May 22 it went up for auction with a starting price of B900,000 but failed to attract any interest.

They could make fancy wrist watches of the hull, like Jerome's Titanic watches.

Only in Thailand.

 

What sick mind looks at that and thinks "We can make money from that".

 

Did they advertise it in China?

Nonsense, also Herald of Free Enterprise e.g. was sold.
