BUT FAKE BARRISTER IS RIDING HIGH IN THAILAND - WHILE HIS 'EX' IS LED TO THE SLAUGHTER

Fake British barrister Brian Goudie walked free from Pattaya Provincial Court today after lawyers for 76-year-old Barbara Fanelli Miller who claim Goudie cheated her out of 7.9 million baht (£149,000) withdrew their application to have his 400,000 (£7,850) baht bail revoked.

While he was still a free man anyway he had to hand in the land title deeds of the former ‘Blarney Stone’ pub in Pattaya – which he renamed ‘The Jaggie Thistle’ and operated without a drinks licence – to the court.

So he has had to say goodbye to something like 12 million's baht worth of property he acquired under very suspect circumstances in the first place.

This however paves the way for Goudie, who was convicted and sentenced to six years jail in Australia for stealing several hundred thousand dollars from a mining company, to buy himself out of posing as a British barrister with an Honours Degree in Law, to cheat the elderly American woman out of her cash.

Goudie had already bought himself off similar charges of cheating British estate agent John Jepson, from Norfolk. He had taken Jepson’s Bangkok apartment in lieu of his legal fees.


'Jaggie Thistle'
This is possible in Thailand where at any stage of a trial brought not by the police or public prosecutor, but the victim, the defendant can make a financial offer to the victim and if the victim accepts, the case will be withdrawn.

Otherwise the victim has to go through the long process of suing in the civil court. In this case the plaintiff is expected to take the advice of her Thai lawyer.

In fact a civil judgment had already been awarded in favour of Mrs. Miller from Madison, Wisconsin, but it appears the lawyers from Sukhothai Law International were unable to enforce it.

One person who of course will suffer in all this is one of the star witnesses for the prosecution. She is  Goudie’s ex-girlfriend, nicknamed Nang, whom he had installed as the managing director of Jimmy International, the company owned by former Ulster drugs runner Jimmy ‘Doc’ Halliday who died in the Bangkok-Pattaya Hospital of necrotising fasciitis (a flesh eating disease)

Jimmy Halliday
Goudie was his lawyer and convinced him on his death bed to sign a Power of Attorney so he could sell his View Talay apartment to pay the hospital bills.  When Halliday died Goudie used the POA to acquire the majority shareholding of Jimmy under his inactive company ‘Ramidin Holdings Company Ltd.

Anyway, having given evidence for the prosecution after lawyers put a lien on Jimmy International preventing anybody from removing her as Managing Director, Sukhothai-Inter-Law then made a deal which has now seen her removed as a director – and open to prosecution herself.

She is now being investigated for theft of materials from Jimmy International. As Md of the company she was entitled to remove articles – now as no longer Managing Director she has to return them or go to jail.

Still that’s life and it is the second time she has taken a fall for Goudie. The first time was when she was charged with operating the Jaggie Thistle as a bar without a drinks licence.  But actually it turns out that when the charge was brought Brian himself was MD of Jimmy International and he hurriedly switched names to her.  The prosecutor has discovered this – and it is under active investigation. It appears Goudie set up his lover.

Former girlfriend Christina Spence laughing about Goudie's
'war wound' which shifted from his groin to his side. Goudie
had also falsely claimed to have been a Captain in the Royal
Marines.
That of course is not half as bad as what he did when they parted and he ran off with another girl  who has since ditched him, as has his recent ‘lawyer’ girlfriend.  These women always cotton on much too late just as did one ex-girlfriend Christina Spence who was interviewed in the tv documentary  ‘Brian Goldie – Swindler Scot’.

"I was obviously feeding that narcissistic requirement of his...but he started telling lies about inconsequential things," she said adding that eventually he told her about an alleged fraud on the Royal Bank of Scotland. .

."He was more or less letting me know how clever he really was. True to his personality he wants and needs people think he was clever, intelligent and capable of pulling off things other people cant foresee....."

"With Brian any suggestion that he should own up to a lie he has said or face the consequences or anything that he had done - that would produce a response in him that was indignant. He would be incensed at people who would find him to have done the wrong thing and and rhat anyone would punish him for that. How dare people. How dare people drop on to me."

People might agree with Deputy President of the Australian Administrative Appeals Tribunal who stated: " I have concluded that Mr  Goldie is not of good character" - when rejecting his application to stay in Australia.
Brian Goudie confronted by the author for 'Serial Swindlers' on the left is Nang - later its alleged porno video and
stills which could only have come from his smart phone appeared on the net

The Technical Crime Suppression Division have passed on a file to Pattaya Police with a pornographic video and pictures of the Nang who testified that the ‘member’ in the picture belonged to Goudie.  Pattaya Police have been asked to expedite the prosecution.  Perhaps under the new system they will leap into action.

They did not however leap into action in a case involving two Britons and a German who claimed they were cheated by Goudie, who they say pocketed the cash awarded to them by a court – so civil and criminal cases have been lodged by their lawyers .  This case had also been referred to Pattaya Police by the CSD.  Nobody will be surprised if another sweetheart deal is made.

So there you have it. Goudie, then Goldie left the UK just before a warrant was issued against him for fraud on the Royal Bank of Scotland, was described in an Australian Administrative Tribunal as not a person of good character, changed his name from Goldie to Goudie and arrived in Thailand posing as a barrister and former officer of the Royal Marines to start a law company called Alba Laws, is now about to get off his second serious criminal charge of fraud and so far the whole of the Thai justice system still does not get it.  It does have its funny moments though.

(Comment:)Paying off criminal charges may seem strange to viewers in the west who take the view that once you catch a thief you punish him. But this is the status quo in Thailand. In fact coupled with the Computer Crime Act libel section it makes this country a fairly safe haven for crooks. This week I had a call from a man in Pattaya claiming that his lawyer had ‘stolen’ his house.  He called the lawyer a thief I presume and is now being sued for libel and computer crime act libel.  ‘Why is it me who is being arrested?’ he asked.  Assuming he's telling the truth Like many who have gone before him - he may have to run - chased out of the country by a criminal.

Is there a moral here?

  1. While it would be nice to see Goudie (Nee Goldie behind bars AGAIN, it is gratifying to see the victim in this scam of his has at least received some compensation.

    Not so much as a disappointment, more of a temporary set back - He obviously has no intention of leaving Thailand or changing his ways - Its only a matter of time before the inevitable result comes in.

    For the meantime, google Brian Goudie and the news comes flooding in.

    1. Actually he always has had to pay back but in Australia he had done jail time as well. None of the scams has been particularly clever - in Australia cash from cheques issued to pay client bills for the company he worked for - ending up being paid straight into his own account...duh

      What about poor Nang? Now looking at 2 cases because of that worthless shit.
      Nang has been sold out by Miller....Miller knew she couldn't have bought her sons freedom in any civilised country in the world but she looked at Thailand as an easy way to get him bundled back in to the US. Its utterly discussing the way this young lady has been sold out by both parties.

    3. Ally, I do not disagree, but it was Gouldie that set her up.

      I have it on good authority that social media was used to very good effect as a means of bringing Gouldie's 'Record' to the attention of a young lady law student - and even more effectively to the attention of her close friends and family.

      Its not possible to save every young woman from the consequences of associating with the wee scroat, but it is possible (demonstrably so) to get the word out on exactly who and what Goudie is.

    4. Ian, it just wasn't Goldie, I do have some insight into the case.
      I don't know Nang personally but I do know people who do, who put a lot of time, effort and money trying to gain a satisfactory result for the victims and innocent. It now seems she has become collateral damage and fed to the wolves by these vultures due to a cheap short deal. In any other civilised country Miller would be in serious trouble for her actions trying to buy her boy out of jail. Its disgraceful, immoral, unethical, I can go on. This young lady has been sacrificed by tainted foreigners in her own country. Utterly repugnant. I'm ashamed.

  2. Still waiting to hear about more of the story about a foreign "lawyer' in thailand who boasted he could bust cons out of prison.......

  3. On his facebook page, Drew claims he is returning to America for an extended period. How is this possible given he's on bail for extortion. Shouldn't the court be holding his passport?

  4. From my own studies and research, our understanding of psychopathy in adults has gone through a confusing conceptual evolution. Psychopaths are often labelled sociopaths, but they have also been distinguished as a separate and distinct group. Another complicating factor is the development of the term 'Antisocial Personality Disorder,' which overlaps with many traits of a psychopath.

    Lack of conscience is the hallmark of psychopathy, unlike psychosis, in which a person is out of touch with reality and experiencing delusions or hallucinations, psychopaths know what they are doing- they just don’t care and refuse point blank to admit any wrong doing. They'll scapegoat and even set-up some innocent person rather than admit anything

    All studies show psychopaths often grew up in harsh environments characterized by factors such as abuse, deprivation or parental neglect that seem to play significant roles in shaping their attitudes and influencing their behaviour.

    If we look at the list of characteristics used to define a psychopath Brian Goudie ticks every box.

    Psychopathy is defined as a disorder characterized by:

    lack of remorse or empathy
    shallow emotions
    manipulativeness
    lying
    egocentricity
    glibness
    low frustration tolerance
    episodic relationships
    parasitic lifestyle
    the persistent violation of social norms
    need for stimulation
    criminal versatility
    transient lifestyle

    Adult psychopathy is generally viewed as difficult or even impossible to treat, particularly for repeat offenders. Medications and therapy don’t work as no self-respecting psychopath is going to seek therapy in the real world because they don’t think there’s anything wrong with them.

    This is revealed by Brian Goudie who gets caught every single time he commits a crime, yet constantly denies he is guilty of doing anything wrong. He then tries to manipulate the system to his own ends. Unfortunately Thailand has a legal system tailor made for this type of person to run amok.

    It's clearly too late to reform or rehabilitate Brian Goldie/Goudie/Boru or whatever he is calling himself today.

  5. Goudie has just posted this message gloating about his persecution of this Thai woman. He seems quite proud of himself. He thinks everybody is going to play fair? He is setting himself up big time. He doesn't know Thais very well if he thinks he's going to get away with this for long. The Thais have another saying, "The righteous always have enough to eat, Evil bastards don't eat for long."

    "Documents just delivered to Dong Tan Police and witness statements completed by my Thai business partners to allow the prosecution of my ex staff member for theft, forgery and embezzlement to commence immediately - she has 14 days to pay back 4.5 million Thai baht or will be prosecuted. The charges come very likely with a long jail term. She wanted to be the big manager with all the power and thought she could get away with it. She will rue the day she took bad advice and sided with my old adversary the fat convicted criminal british journalist, now himself under pressure! Poor old Nang, discarded like a rag doll as the case she was a witness in fell apart with lawyers desperate to settle to avoid being jailed for contempt of court - led to the slaughter and sold out by her former allies. What is the Thai phrase? สมนำหน้า. Nobody ever said life was fair."

  6. Foreigners on bail, if they are on the immigration "stop" list, can ask for permission to leave Thailand for reasons agreed with and by a judge. They also have to be back by a date stated by the judge. The court then issues the necessary paperwork to allow exit from the country. There is nothing unusual about this procedure which is widely used by defendants who sometimes (not always) have to post an additional bail bond. Interestingly, most do return. The most unusual case was Paul Cryne, a UK guy who was accused of murder here in Pattaya and was given permission to go to UK where he murdered again. But he still returned to Thailand on time and was later deported to London where he is currently serving a long sentence for the UK murder..

  7. This case allowing Goudie to pay his way out of trouble using a building he defrauded off someone else is ludicrous.

    It's a bit like allowing a person who robbed a bank to pay back the bank with money he stole from another bank.

  8. Seeking justice within a forum where the rules are so lax or incomprehensible suggests a futile endeavour. I reckon Andrew you are in the situation where heads banging against brick walls and getting rid of headaches leads most to the obvious conclusion. May I advise an exeunt with your children to a country where your undoubted talents may be better rewarded and your life is less irked by this trash? Thailand is a third world country where scum will always rise to the surface. In the end, what's the point of wasting your time skimming it just to find the next day more has risen?
    The Thai deal with their problems by extra judicial means for very good reasons- justice otherwise is never obtained.

    1. Thanks Gerry for explaining why the Thai police don't take any action against these criminals......they expect the "Thai" solution to the problem rather than have a judge actually cause the loss of face by passing a guilty verdict on foreign criminals.
