Lawyer Songkan Atchariyasap, chairman of the Network Against Acts that Destroy the Kingdom, Religion and Monarchy, filed the petition with Amlo yesterday (Aug 2).

According to the petition, a network of 12 individuals, several of them bureaucrats, police and military officers, along with two juristic persons, were suspected of involvement in money laundering linked to Monta’s alleged human trafficking offences.

Mr Songkran alleged Monta transferred illegally earned money to the network. He asked Amlo to follow the money trail.

The lawyer earlier submitted a list of 13 people he said were Monta’s adopted children to the Crime Suppression Division. He said they were unusually wealthy although only 25 to 30 years old. He asked the agency to launch an investigation.

Mr Songkran believed Monta’s alleged criminal network had about B100 million in circulation.

Amlo secretary Pairat Thespanit accepted Mr Songkran’s request and said officials would look into the suspects’ past financial transactions to see if there were any irregularities and any links between them.

Monta, 56, was arrested on a lese majeste charge for using the title “Khunying”, which must be royally bestowed, and falsely claiming a relationship with the royal institution.

She has been detained at the Central Women’s Correctional Institute since July 7.

She also faces charges of lodging false complaints to police, attempted human trafficking and defamation.
