"I WAS SHOCKED! MOTHER, 76, WAS THE MASTERMIND - SAYS BRIAN GOUDIE

An American child sexual abuser who was allegedly part of a plot to be sprung from jail in Pattaya by a fake Scottish advocate has been sentenced to 33 years in prison.

Gregory Miller, 46, a schoolteacher at an international school on the Eastern Seaboard, was sentenced on November 14th, said Sutham Siribunyawat, principal lawyer at Sukhothai International Lawyers in Bangkok said today.

The law firm had been brought into salvage Miller’s defence after Miller's mother, Barbara Fanelli Miller of Wisconsin, complained that Brian Goudie, the boss of a firm called Alba Laws, had taken her for US$300,000 promising the release of her son, from Nong Plalai Prison, Pattaya.

Sutham - 'Boiler Room Buster'
Sutham Siribunyawat, best known for busting a boiler room operation in Bangkok, who has taken criminal and civil action against Goudie said that his company had completed extensive research into how the US$300,000 had been spent. 

“He spent less than 1 million baht (US$30,000) from our estimation. How do we know?  Goudie’s legal team, who have left him have been very helpful.”

Of that million baht some 70,000 baht was spent on two lawyers, some 50,000 spent on police, and some 350,000 spent on compensating an alleged victim, said Sutham.

Goudie has been ordered to surrender to Pattaya Provincial Court in February to go to trial for cheating Mrs. Fanelli Miller.

Ian Tracy 'Mercy Centre' Prison Visitor
Mrs Miller, now 76, told from the U.S. how she travelled to Thailand after speaking to Goudie, a British lawyer who promised he could help.

She said she was met at Suvarnabhumi International Airport by Briton Ian Tracy, who was a volunteer prison visitor for the ‘Mercy Centre’ in Pattaya.

She told how she was put up in a room in the Jaggy Thistle, where Tracy also lived and Goudie gave her a 100 per cent guarantee that she would be able to take her son back home.

Mrs Miller did not explain how that was going to be done, but Goudie said that it was just a matter of talking to the right people. The costs however would be expensive.

Laws suits claim that Goudie milked her for almost everything she was worth.

It transpired that Tracy had obtained for Goudie a number of clients from Nong Plalai Prison, Pattaya, including Ulster drugs trafficker Jimmy ‘Doc’ Halliday, and a Briton wanted for murder in Spain.

Jimmy Halliday
His policy was to ask for their land title deeds in lieu of payment or as a guarantee against payment.
In the case of Halliday he secured a power of attorney shortly before he died in hospital under prison guard of necrotising fasciitis, a flesh eating disease. 

This was ostensibly to pay his fees and the hospital bill.  He paid the Bangkok-Pattaya hospital just one million baht of a two million baht bill, sold Halliday’s 2.5 million baht condo in a complex called View Talay 2, and re-assigned the deeds of the ‘Jaggy Thistle’ pub to himself and to his cash receiving company Ramidin Co. Ltd., which has an identical company with an account at HSBC in Hong Kong.

What Barbara Fanelli Miller did not know was that Brian Goudie was not a lawyer but a former convict. 

Under the name Brian Goldie he been jailed in Australia for ‘stealing as a servant’ and given three two year prison sentences – two to run consecutively.

An Australian Appeals Tribunal to whom he had applied for residency rejected his application and in the judgment he was described as a ‘person not of good character’. 

Two witnesses, a wife and an ex-girlfriend testified as to his dishonesty.  His wife June Weiss said: “He considered honest people to be stupid”.

Both women said he had confessed to a fraud on the Royal Bank of Scotland for which a warrant for his arrest had been issued in 1994. The warrant has since expired. His alleged co-conspirators also fled to Australia.

On his legal website today Brian Goudie, who is out on bail on charges of pretending to be a lawyer and also a former Captain in the Royal Marines in charge of 120 men,  to obtain pecuniary advantage, plays down his role in the Miller affair.

He has already admitted in court he does not have any legal qualifications.

He states: “When Barbara Miller revealed to lawyers a long history of mental health issues and previous treatment with drugs designed to chemically castrate Greg Miller, it is alleged the relationship with lawyers turned sour, who had allegedly advised Miller to plead guilty as part of a plea bargain arrangement - which he refused to accept”.  

He does not say who makes the allegations.

But he said that he was horrified at the sex abuse crimes of his client thus breaching the most elementary legal ethics.

He has also recently taken to claiming that he did not want to do the bidding of Miller's elderly mother. He suggested that it was she who part of a ring supplying cash to get paedophiles out of jail in Thailand.

However a resident of the Jomtien Complex, Pattaya, close to the 'Jaggie Thistle' said: 'She was like a duck out of water. She was very frail and always had a worried look on her face. She looked like she did not know where she was."

Ian Tracy gives the gives the finger as he is waiting to be taken away from Jaggies Thistle to be jailed for child sexual
offences. However Goudie's partner at the time 'Nang'  claims Goudie  tipped off police because
Tracy's monetary demands were getting excessive

What Mrs Miller also did not know was that his own ‘client scout’ Ian Tracy was a convicted paedophile – and was actually living on his premises when police raided the Jaggie Thistle early this year.  Tracy is now serving four years in Nong Plalai prison for offences against young boys.

Thai Police could do not worse than interview Ian Tracy in Nong Plalai Prison.

After the arrest Goudie insisted that both of his clients were innocent unless proved otherwise.  He only started referring to Miller as a ‘depraved’ child abuser after legal proceedings were began against him.

As far as I am concerned I have no criminal record in Britain and the Procurator Fiscal who dismissed the case against me will confirm that. He is sending me a letter to say just that.

“I am in Thailand on a legal British passport and I have built up a good and reputable business". 
He admitted that he had taken the ‘Jaggie Thistle’ and an apartment from Jimmy ‘Doc' Halliday before he died. 
“But I paid for him to get out of prison and into hospital to save his life. He was a man who did not have a reputation for paying his bills. You would do the same. 
As for Ian Tracy he said: “I had absolutely no idea that man was on charges of sexual abuse of minors. If I had known he would not be allowed near my place”.


Initially he said he would pay the money back – but Goudie was just playing for time – something the Thai justice system has given him so easily.

Miller
Miller was found guilty of 13 cases of child abuse involving three boys. He is understood to have had a  record of child abuse in the United States and had been ordered to receive counselling and medication in the past.

Mr. Sutham said: " It would appear that police were upset by Goudie's behaviour. They put extra charges on Miller which we were able to have dismissed. But by the time we got involved the damage had been done - a lot of it."




Comment: Utilities now cut off from this apartment which he tried to obtain in lieu of extravagant
barristers fees
Goudie looks like he is planning to move. He is trying to sell the 'Jaggy Thistle'in Pattaya and Bang Kao Bay Residences on Koh Samui. He claims work has started on Bang Kao Bay - it hasn't.

The two properties were both acquired in a very questionable way - in his role as a British barrister.

  1. This case is further proof of what a heartless predator Goldie is. Fleecing an old lady who was standing by her son even though he was charged with crimes against children.

    So Goldie scams a dying man out of his property with false promises then cheats a vulnerable old lady out of her savings whilst using another child abuser as his errand boy.

    Sounds like his meddling in the case actually made things a lot worse. It's amazing how much damage and suffering these people cause. It's clear Goldie actually thinks he's some legal mastermind. He's just a greedy opportunist who targets people when they're most vulnerable. A total coward.

  2. So Goldie is claiming he didn't know Tracy was a kiddy fiddler? Well Brian I think you may have befriended another recently. You read this site Brian. It is now an open secret. Read my previous posts.You have been told. Ask him about it Brian. He will probably tell you that the age of consent is 15 and he is doing nothing wrong. He believes he is doing nothing wrong.
    So will you stand by him? Is that the sort of person you are Brian? Friends with the fiddler?
