Lao woman arrested at Mukdahan border check-point carrying Bt30 million cash

Recommended Posts

Think about all the cash that successfully has been transported out of the country so far, before the military finds it.

she must be a customer at one of the 2 banks being investigated for wishy-washy business.solly not today.

 

    Or she brought MR. T's money to his sister.

 

Why would she need to do that when brother & sister are together in England right now? Even so, why would Yinluck need Thai baht in Laos?

This could be drug money but it could also be a simple case of attempted theft.

 

Wouldn't surprise me is she was bolting the course with her bosses money, he checked his account money not there, her phone was turned off and it was him who called the police.

 

Can't see how anyone else would know she was taking the money home.

 

Of course it as drug money some small time pusher probably stuck her in, in exchange for leniency.

 

It's called dishonour among theives. Which was shortned to honour by the crime bosses to fool the idiots into taking the wrap.

The army wasn't trusting the BIB anywhere 30m baht on their own.  That is one hell of a traffic stop payment.   Two possibilities here.  She should have split into several packs so it didn't all get lost at once.   Maybe she did split it and this is only a part of her stash.  Sounds like a bank tip-off to me..

Likely the proceeds of a drug, luxury timber, human or high-value wildlife trade, all standard business models in Lao that violate international regulations and Agreements that the country is party to but ironically attract official government tax.  

 

For example, the links between Lao, Thailand and South Africa involving rhino horn trade and human trafficking is fascinating and the subject of a recent book by Julian Rademayer.  The trade could not happen without the Thai and Lao middlemen, and this woman may be one of them.

 

Probable best guess so far.

Right now it is comforting to think that somewhere,someone, is more pi**ed of than me.

YOU very likely could be 100% correct...................   I hope you are right and they confiscate it all...................... I think now 'too late' for tea-money (it will go into the Govt. hands and be shared by the 'higher-ups'.................

Sounds to me like another police photo op to make us think that the cops do anything except take tea money....it's a bit like the mountains of yaba they keep finding, each one looks suspiciously like the last 'find'...I suspect it is the same drugs being photographed over and over again.

What seems to be the problem? She probably had been working as a made for a couple of months and got good salary, I don't see any problem with that.

Or maybe she was a mule for the Laos drug syndicate.coffee1.gif
