“There are a lot of witness statements and evidence involved in this case,” he said. “We do not want to make any mistakes and we need some more time, at least one more month.”

Col Angkul told The Phuket News on October 27 that he was delighted by the news that the case was finally heading toward trial.

“The Ace 1 condominium case is very important for us, we consider it a pioneer case,” he said. “There are many more fraudulent cases in the property business. We will study this case very closely. I think I have to go to Phuket again very soon.”
