Pol Maj Gen Krajang Suwannarat, Phuket police commander, told The Phuket News, “Everyone was released on bail at 3am today. They have all been questioned already. Plus, they surrendered to us voluntarily.

“Actually, we have set up 20-30 officials to work on this job. Then, we still can work with ten officials (who are investigator). We must of course assume that they are innocent until proven guilty.

“However the investigation is not over yet. If there is any suggestion of witnesses being intimidated, we can revoke bail. Each has posted bail of B120,000.

Maybe 150,000 is the normal rate. Remember also that they are not yet guilty of anything. If they were going to flee they could have done so these past 2 months. They have too many assets here and likely not enough abroad. In any event they, like Thaksin, would be miserable abroad so if they are guilty and they do flee it still sorts the problem.
