Sorayuth’s final message before going to prison

Former TV celebrity Sorayuth Suthasanachinda, convicted of embezzling 138 million baht in advertising fees from The Mass Communications Organization of Thailand (MCOT), said that he is ready to face the consequences of his actions in full awareness that the Supreme Court cannot overturn his conviction in two lower courts.

 

“I have fought (the case) in accordance with legal process. Whatever the outcome, I have to accept it,” said the well-known news anchor on Instagram today (Tuesday), ahead of the Supreme Court delivering its ruling. His original prison term of 13 years and four months was reduced to 8 years.

 

Sorayuth said that he had already repaid the 138 million baht to the MCOT and that he accepts the two lower court verdicts and had never thought of fleeing the country. “Of course, I am afraid of being jailed, but I was not born with a silver spoon in my mouth, never had a life such that I could not spend time in prison. The past 30 years of working, I would say, has sometimes been tougher than prison, but the most important thing in those 30 years was my freedom.”

I remember him well. I watched him daily.

 

He had very much a style and arrogant attitude not dissimilar to the UK's Piers Morgan.

 

He could be right on many things he said but it was usually over shadowed with the need for the limelight and making it all about himself.

 

Anyway, he paid the money back only after he was bang to rights and then tried denying he was trying to embezzle it.

 

Maybe he can do a prison radio station whilst reflecting the error of his ways, greedy <deleted>.

Just watched a eulogy to him on Channel 3 with an emotional, tearful speech from his former co-presenter and a sentimental photo montage to finish. I appreciate that this was a presentation by his former work colleagues and was bound to be a bit biased but had to ask why he was being portrayed as some sort of hero rather than just another convict. 

There's a good scene in Die Hard (aren't they all good) where Holly McClane accuses Hans Gruber of being nothing more than a 'common thief'. Enraged and offended by her accusation, he rebuts with, "I'm an exceptional thief!". At least he knew he was a thief. 

 

It's amazing how people can delude themselves, and others, into ignoring their actions and buying into their empty words.

From now on it will no longer be about stealing millions of baht, but all about stealing fish heads from your cellmates' soup. Enjoy your own personal reality show, Mr. Sorrayuth.
