  6. Former MPs brother charged with procuring girls By Kampanart La-ong The Nation A former MP’s elder brother has been arrested over allegations that he was linked to a North-based prostitution gang that lured hill-tribal girls into the flesh trade via social media. He maintained that he was innocent and would testify only on court. The 65-year-old Boonyasit Rungthanakiat was arrested at a Bangkok hotel’s car park, as police responded to an arrest warrant issued by the Chiang Mai court on June 12. Charges include human trafficking and procuring girls under 18 into prostitution. The arrest was announced in a Friday press conference at Bangkok’s Crime Suppression Division. Boonyasit is the elder brother of former Pheu Thai Party’s Surin MP Kasem Rungthanakiat. The arrest stemmed from discovery of three sex workers aged under 18 during a March search operation of “So Nice” karaoke bar in Chiang Mai’s Muang district by the Provincial Police Region 5 officers and Social Development and Human Security Ministry officials. A police probe then found seven additional karaoke bar branches in Chiang Mai under the helm of Boonyasit that allegedly committed similar offences. The operation had netted six suspects while Boonyasit eluded police until they learned he was laying low in Bangkok and arrested him this week. The gang allegedly lured hill-tribal girls or migrant workers via social media with a promise of a job paying as high as Bt50,000 monthly, and them forced them to instead provide sex services. Police expect Boonyasit to be sent to Chiang Mai’s Mae Ping Police Station as legal actions proceed.

  9. Police aim at six Thai celebrities over social-media booze postings By The Nation Police are focused on summoning six Thai celebrities whose pictures with alcoholic beverages were posted and shared on social media. Authorities are considering charges for violating the Alcoholic Beverage Control Act. Pol General Weerachai Songmetta, a national police chief adviser, presided over a meeting on Friday of police investigators at the Muang Nonthaburi Police Station to discuss progress of a probe progress against accused of promoting alcohol consumption on social media. According to a police source, the accused celebrities are DJ Davide Dorico, Sirin “Cris” Howang, Pongsak “Aof” Rattanaphong, Hansa “Nuclear” Jungwattanawong, Sean Jindachot and Ratchanon "Guy" Sukprakob. Police will also summon executives from the company linked to the alcohol brand for questioning. The posts are suspected of promoting drinking and thus allegedly in violation of Section 32 of the Alcoholic Beverage Control Act. The section bans people from advertising alcoholic drinks and from showing the names and logos of alcoholic drinks to promote them. Offenders face up to one year in prison, a Bt500,000 fine, or both. Weerachai said additional celebrities were participating in promotions and should remove their posts from all social media channels before police take action against them. He said police would fine a first-time offender at Bt50,000 and a repeated offender at Bt200,000. Those providing information leading an arrest would get one-fourth of the fine as a reward, he added. This is not the first time Thai celebrities have been accused of posting photos of themselves with booze. In 2015 seven celebrities, including Pakorn “Dome” Lam and Virithipa “VJ Woonsen” Pakdeeprasong, faced police probes over similar allegations.

    Extradition of Vorayuth moves a slow step forward By Jessada Jantarak The Nation Police have made little progress in efforts to extradite Red Bull heir Vorayuth “Boss” Yoovidhya to face charges related to a much-publicised fatal hit-and-run accident in 2012.

  11. Extradition of Vorayuth moves a slow step forward By Jessada Jantarak The Nation Police have made little progress in efforts to extradite Red Bull heir Vorayuth “Boss” Yoovidhya to face charges related to a much-publicised fatal hit-and-run accident in 2012. Translations of the investigation report are now ready start the extradition process. Vorayuth, a grandson of Red Bull co-founder Chaleo Yoovidhya, made headlines five years ago for allegedly running over a junior police officer in Bangkok’s Thonglor area, dragging the victim’s body under his Ferrari for several metres, and then speeding away. Earlier this year, Vorayuth managed to sneak out of Thailand just days before his case went to the court. Thai authorities have since been criticised for perceived failure to strictly enforce laws against the billionaire suspect. Criticism grew after a senior prosecutor revealed recently that Thonglor Police Station had still not submitted the translations of its investigation report to initiate the extradition request. Metropolitan Police Commissioner Pol Lt General Sanit Mahathavorn on Friday said: “The translations were forwarded to the National Police Office’s Foreign Affairs Division on Thursday.” He said the next step was for the National Police Office to contact the Office of the Attorney-General to proceed further with the extradition. Dismissing suggestions that police shielded the super rich, Sanit, said: “I can assure you that police enforce laws equally. Some cases may face delays but we will improve on that.” Sanit refused to comment on the National Anti-Corruption Commission’s (NACC) decision to investigate seven commissioned police officers for allegedly trying to help Vorayuth out of his legal trouble. Among them are Pol Maj General Kris Piakaew, a former chief of the Metropolitan Police Division 5, and Pol Colonel Chumpol Pumpuang, a former superintendent of the Thonglor Police Station. The statute of limitations for several of Vorayuth’s alleged offences – speeding and reckless driving causing property damages – has already expired. Currently, Vorayuth stands accused of reckless driving that resulted in death and failing to stop to assist his victim. The former has a 15-year statute of limitation, which ends in September 2027, while the latter’s statute of limitations will expire on September 3.
