Chuwit adds details to casino accusations

PHUKET: Maverick politician and former naughty massage king Chuwit Kamolvisit has added to his accusations against Phuket’s Tiger Group and local police, teasing media in the capital by saying that he has video footage of a casino on the island, and laying out the structure of police protection.

Mr Chuwit earlier accused Tiger of running “the biggest casino in the South of Thailand”, with a daily turnover of B100 million.

Mr Chuwit said he would reveal the video clip if the Commander of Police region 8 promised to transfer all the police involved to the troubled provinces along the border with Malaysia.

He added that there were other casinos in Phuket, in Chalong, Phuket City and Thung Tong in Kathu. The casinos in Chalong and Thung Thong are temporarily closed, he added.

He also accused a “senior police officer” in Region 8, whom he named only as “J” as providing protection for casinos in Phuket in return for bribes.

“J” had assigned a senior Phuket police officer, “B”, to look after casinos on the island. “B”, in turn, had given a third officer, whom he named as “S” the job of collecting bribes from the casinos.

He said that he had passed his evidence, including the video clip, to the Parliamentary Police Commission for a further investigation.

The Commission is expected to visit Phuket soon.

Tiger Group president and chairman Piya Itsaramalai, in a press conference last Friday (March 30), flatly denied Mr Chuwit’s accusations and urged him to come and see for himself.

Mr Chuwit has not responded to that invitation.
