-Pattaya Provincial Court has dismissed another case brought by Drew Noyes, the phony American lawyer who founded the Pattaya Times newspaper.

Judges in Pattaya have dismissed the case brought by Drew Noyes who counter sued Dutch businessman Andre Machielsen after Andre lost a libel case against Noyes, 57, earlier in the year.

Noyes had claimed that his business was ruined by Andre Machielsen’s allegations. Judges however ruled the claims were not substantiated.

It may be more likely that Mr. Noyes businesses, whatever they are, may have been ruined by stories in the Thai Rath, and Nation newspaper about his arrest and that of his common law wife Wanrapa Boonsu for extortion of the Thonglor Clinic, Jomtien, and further reports here about the fraud case brought by Dutchman van der schaaf, who claimed the Noyes and Boonsu defrauded him out of 2.5 million baht.

Andre Machielsen claimed that Noyes had libelled him by saying he was a drugs dealer and had been banned from visiting the United States.

As a 19-year-old Machielsen admitted a 'misdemeanour' after being caught with some cannabis. Amsterdam later became famous for being a place where you could smoke it legally in special cannabis cafes.

The alleged libel was contained in an email to a blogspot site.

But judges ruled that it could not be proven that Noyes was the actually author of the email from

Noyes had claimed it could have been anybody who used his computer – and that included enemies of his.

A delighted Andre Machielsen, a Christmas Santa Claus for school kids in Pattaya said today:

“I am delighted with the result. I did not even have to go to court to testify.  Now I am off to Amsterdam for a three week break. Can I get you anything?"
"Perhaps a bit of weed?" 
"I'd be wasting my time. You can get better grass in Pattaya!"

The Pattaya Times has now ceased to function as a newspaper and like the Pattaya People was never legally registered as one - but its online presence is dedicated to libelling Drew Noyes' enemies.

Comment: PS: If you get an email from and it is a rant, believe you me, it IS Drew Noyes.


  1. Doesn't it cost anything to initiate court action in Thailand?

    1. Depends - civil cases for damages say in libel. You have to deposit 2 per cent of what u want to claim - plus lawyers fees.

      Criminal cases - There seems to be unnofficial rule of thumb that to launch a case is 50,000 which should take you to conclusion. Hidden costs are lawyers expeneses translations etc.

      Drew Noyes however charges a lot more if you are going to use his lawyers? :-) Then there are the extra fees which could increase by millions

  2. What is he doing??? Does he have no idea that wasting the courts time is not going to earn him any favours?

    1. I think the courts are fed up with him now. Which is a pity because none of the two remaining prosecutions against me have started.

    2. He'll be in the dock soon.. where they have a perfect opportunity put him in his place.. Hope he's a flight risk :-)

  3. I think I understand all this……
    So I could fire off a load of libel from my e mail or even better Facebook, then have the Dope threaten to sue me (as he's done, me 1 case, Topper 2 and you win Andrew with 6), then claim it was in fact my enemy, Noise who really did it.........
    Then I could sue him for suing him???......This isn't the real world is it?

  4. Come on feel the Noyes tick tock tick tock.

  5. Here's what Drew had to say about the court case:

    "We opted out so we could instead file the case in Civil Court today against Andre Machielsen and Master Safety Enterprises Co Ltd. Now we win up to 5 million baht instead of no money and subjecting an old man to criminal prosecution. It was a WIN/WIN!"

    It shows just how low the guy is.

  6. When is Noyes next day in court for the extortion thing?
