Huay Sriwirat arrived in a wheelchair at Phra Khanong Civil Court yesterday (Nov 19) with her granddaughter and a lawyer. She filed a civil lawsuit against her daughter Mawadee Sriwirat, 53, accusing her of colluding with four employees of Kasikornbank to steal the money from her two bank accounts.

Lawyer Anantachai Chaiyadet said that in 2014 Ms Huay had been admitted to a hospital for treatment of coronary artery disease. While she was in hospital the accused people allegedly changed the condition for withdrawal of money from the two bank accounts from her signature to a fingerprint.

About B253mn had been taken from the accounts through many hundreds of withdrawals, the lawyer said.

Mintra Sriwirat, the 29-year-old granddaughter, said her grandmother had accumulated wealth from the business of building frames for air-conditioners for about three decades. Ms Mawadee is the second of her three children. Ms Mintra is the daughter of Ms Huay’s eldest son.

Ms Huay had accounts with Kasikornbank’s Srinagarind Km 9 and Sukhumvit 101 branches, and found that the passbooks were mssing from her safe when she was discharged from hospital and returned home, Ms Mintra said.

Mr Anantachai said a criminal suit had already been filed against the five people for alleged theft, document forgery and use of forged documents.

The complaint had been filed with Udomsuk police in 2017. As the case had made little progress, Ms Huay sought help from a lawyer and it was decided to bring a civil suit, Ms Mintra said.

In response, Kasikornbank stated that the employees involved had no ill intention and sought only to serve the needs of a customer through her immediate relative.
