Murdered billionaire’s sister frets over stalled case

BANGKOK: The sister of late billionaire property developer Chuwong Sae Tang met with senior police yesterday (June 2) to find out why two cases in connection with her brother’s death still have not gone to court over a year since a former commerce minister was charged with his murder.

She expressed concern that the statute of limitations for both cases may expire before they go to court.

Mr Chuwong was killed in a car crash in 2015 when Lt Col Banyin Tangpakorn drove his Lexus sports utility vehicle into a roadside tree in Prawet district, Bangkok on June 26.

Lt Col Banyin Tangpakorn, the former minister, survived the incident and was charged with premeditated murder.

Just days before the crash, shares worth over B300 million that were owned by Mr Chuwong were found to have been transferred to two women, raising suspicion of foul play.

The shares were given to Kanthana Siwathanapol, a 27-year-old golf caddie, and Srithana Promma. The second lady is the mother of Uracha Wachirakulton, a former broker at AEC Securities Plc who handled Mr Chuwong’s stock accounts.

Mr Chuwong’s older sister Wanpen Thanathamsiri, 63, yesterday met Crime Suppression Division (CSD) deputy chief Chakrit Sawatdee to discuss the progress of the two cases.

She said no one who has been implicated in either case has been indicted despite the passage of two years.

Regarding the share transfer, Ms Wanpen said the CSD spent time gathering sufficient evidence before seeking an indictment against Lt Col Banyin and accomplices for conspiring to use fake documents, carry out theft and receive stolen items.

Prosecutors at the Department of Southern Bangkok Civil Litigation initially decided not to indict the suspects, and the case was then passed to the national police chief, who was asked whether he agreed with the decision, she said.

The case was later sent to the attorney-general who asked the CSD officers to gather more evidence, according to Ms Wanpen.

She said prosecutors have asked the CSD to further investigate the murder, adding that Lt Col Banyin appeared to be “buying time” by seeking justice from the prosecutors.

Kurt...what  is it that you trying to say and what is your point?

And we don't hear anymore of that so called demoted abbot, a criminal monk leader of a strange sect, with a tale of expired warrants.
Must be a very, very complex case with all thai officials involved.
Looks to be also a.. "Buying time case"..until all expires, saving a lot of involved Officials who supported and serviced that sect with illegal land and banking matters and all more you can imagine.

'Further investigations are needed', Hahahaha.  Yes, yes.

Point with these cases is that the matters are not complex, but all the Officials involved in the crimes make it 'complex'.
Just buying time, preferable delay further investigations until the heavy stuff expires.
Safe as many officials as possible.

Delay-delay, that is happening when you read the words 'property' or 'land'.
See that Ace-1 property scandal, the 'project' opposite entrance Patong hospital in Patong. 
Delay-delay, and also the prosecutor in that case ran away!
Different, but same-same.  :-)

Oh, yes, case passage already 2 years, still forensic testing by scientists have to be done? ( Joe12)
Give me a break.

Kurt...after reading the article did you bother to consider that further investigations were needed. It is quite a complex matter concerning serious charges, that also requires forensic testing by scientists.  It's not your usual run-of-the- mill motor accident of which you are an expert.

Quite 'transparent' non handling.
Officials just shuffle this case from one to another as it is a hot potato.
Typical one of the cases on the no-action list of the thai RTP and justice officials..
It is just stored in the famous thai 'Buy your time' system.
