Amlo’s committee overseeing financial transactions has resolved to seize assets in three cases, deputy secretary-general Romsit Wiriyasan said yesterday (Apr 25).

The major seizure involved 97 assets worth B213mn belonging to Thongchai Rojrungrangsi and several others for filing false financial reports to the Revenue Department from 2011 to 2016, Maj Gen Romsit said.

Thongchai is former managing director of Royal Thai Herb Co, a business linked to OA Transport Co.

OA Transport operates a tour bus business catering mainly to Chinese tourists and is run by the Rojrungrangsi family.

OA Transport has been accused of racketeering in connection with a “zero dollar” tour operation.

Although the court of first instance in August last year acquitted the firm and its executives, the company and its group still face a charge of tax evasion brought by the Revenue Department.

Public prosecutors have also appealed against the racketeering acquittal.

A second case where Amlo decided to seize assets involve Bancha Surin and his accomplices, for their role in the illicit drug trade in the North between 2001-2014. Three assets worth B81,000 in total will be seized, Maj Gen Romsit said.

A third case is the seizure of life insurance payments made by Prasert Sukkhee and his accomplices, who were involved in human trafficking in procuring girls aged below 18 years for prostitution at Nataree Entertainment massage parlour in Bangkok’s Din Daeng area, the Amlo deputy-secretary-general said. He gave no further details.

Hundreds of millions thb's flying around your ears, many well maintained new safe buses. Buses government only has at custom depots in BKK because of sabotaging thai customs paperwork and old sloppy runned down buses driving around.
Cannot call this 'zero dollar' tours. These chinese firms invested smartly a lot of money in it.
Thai officials are just jealous about it, not understand...
