Thai granny in shock! Financial authority demands ten years of pension be repaid

A poor 89 year old grandmother in Buriram in Thailand's north east has been told to repay ten years of a pension.
 
The order from the Comptroller General's Department was delivered by the local authority and amounts to 84,000 baht. 
 
The money came after the death of Buan Losuwan's son in an explosion while he was on military service. 
 
Laddawan, 66, Buan's daughter, said in tears that she would go to jail instead of her mum.
 
They couldn't find that sort of money and she wondered why they had waited ten years before asking for it back.
 
Daily News did not explain at all why the money needed to be returned.
 
They published a picture of a reporter and the family with a framed portrait of a man called Jakkrawut Losuwan who died 20 years ago aged 34.

I read it as the pension or some monies were forthcoming when the son died in an explosion 20 years ago. Not his pension as he was already dead. 

Some bureaucrat has screwed up but won't take responsibility. 

That (initial) bureaucrat that authorized payments may have retired, died, etc. Still, the family receiving the monies should have inquired (long ago) if what they received was legal.

 

Anyhow, not my problem, not my country, and I do not know the family (of the deceased). I will not lose sleep regarding the outcome.

This story is either so poorly written or I am getting dumber by the day, it's just so confusing,

 

I mean who is Buan Losuwan ? from my reading the daughter of the poor old grandmother is Laddawan, 66, who is in the picturedo I take it that Buan Losuwan was the father, i.e. the husband of the mother who is depicted as the poor old grandmother ?

 

And what has the guy in the portrait Jakkrawut Losuwan who died 20 years ago aged 34 got to do with any of this, was he the son of Laddawan ?

 

Was this pension supposed to stop after either the father or the deceased son passed in military action or was it supposed to be someone else's pension ?

 

I need a stronger coffee, that or I'm coming down with something 🙄

You tink to mut....😉

The Mother (Buan), her daughter (Laddawan) and the deceased son and brother (Jakkrawut).

Too right she should pay it back. Sounds like she had been knowingly collecting the dead guy’s pension even though he had been dead for 20 years. 
 

 

When somebody dies during service like in this case an explosion, the victim will get postumely promoted to a higher rank and the family will be compensated for their loss. In some case they will receive a pension if that person was the breadwinner.  Normally in Thailand they retire at 60. Shame on you Generals 80 something over a period of 10 years, not even the price of a decent watch. She should sue instead.
