KEY BAR AND GUEST HOUSE OWNER'S SECRET FILMS

An arrest warrant was today issued for fake Scots lawyer Brian Goudie by a court in Thailand on charges which included posting pornographic video of his former 19-year-old Thai assistant in the resort of Pattaya.

The warrant was issued by Pattaya Provincial Court after Goudie, 48, from Falkirk, failed to turn up to surrender to bail.

Goudie is currently on bail appealing a three year jail sentence for posing as a British barrister and former officer of the Royal Marines to cheat a 78-year-old American woman, Barbara Fanelli, from Madison, Wisconsin out of 7.8 million Thai baht (£142,369) which included bail money for her son who had been arrested in Pattaya.  Her son Gregory Miller, 44, died in custody.

He was born Brian Gerald James Goldie in Falkirk and under this name he was jailed for six years in Australia for stealing some AUS$400,000 from his employers, a West Australian mining company.

Having changed his name the former Royal Bank of Scotland teller described himself as a Barrister with a degree from Edinburgh University and a former Captain in the Royal Marines who had been wounded in Iraq.  He was neither.

The latest charges have been brought by Ms. BK (name redacted) whom Goudie made managing director of Jimmi International a company which owned a guest house and two apartments in Pattaya and which formerly belonged to former Ulster drugs trafficker Jimmy ‘Doc’ Halliday,   Halliday's assets in the UK were seized by the Serious Organised Crime Agency (now National Crime Agency).

Goudie secured the company by gaining Halliday’s power of attorney on his deathbed. Halliday died from the flesh eating disease necrotising fasciitis while in prison in Thailand, having been jailed for his part in a fight in a Pattaya nightclub.

Goudie transferred the managing directorship of Jimmi International the day after the bar an guest house then known as the 'Jaggie Thistle'  was raided by police and found not to have alcohol or entertainment licences.  As a result Ms BK was prosecuted.  This act is the subject of a further charge for which Goudie’s arrest warrant was issued.

While several countries including Canada, Israel, 27 states of the USA, and the United Kingdom and even the Philippines, have introduced laws criminalizing ‘Revenge Porn’ Thailand has not.
Goudie is being prosecuted under Thailand’s Computer Crime Act and criminal libel laws.

It is alleged that Goudie, who was in a relationship with Ms BK reacted badly at their split up. He posted stories on the net describing her as a US$10 prostitute and then posted a number of pornographic pictures and videos he had taken her at the guest house’, now trading as the U$15 a night Key Bar and Guest House in the Jomtien Complex, Pattaya, and also in a hotel room.
Goudie also features in the videos but his face is not shown.

Dr. Laura Hilly and Kira Allmann of the Oxford Human Rights Hub commenting on the decision earlier this year by Google and Bing to remove links to Revenge Porn on request, described revenge porn as a kind of gendered hate speech designed to silence women and other gender, sexual, and racial minorities. Rather than promote free expression, as its defenders maintain, it stifles free expression and the internet needs protection from it.

Last April Californian Kevin Bollaert  who ran the revenge porn website ‘UGotPosted’ was sentenced to 18 years in prison and ordered to pay US$385,000 damages to his victim. The victim was under 18 when the pictures were taken.

“Sitting behind a computer, committing what is essentially a cowardly and criminal act, will not shield predators from the law or jail," said Attorney General Kamala Harris following the verdict.

Last year Goudie, who has repeatedly beenconfronted about his past announced he was suing Google for allowing internet harassment against him. However no action was taken.  An attempt to use the ‘Right to be Forgotten Ruling’ by the European Union also to have articles removed from the net about him also failed in  a Thai court.

The legal agent assisting Ms BK said: "Mr Goudie has publicly announced he has enough cash to pay for bail until the cows come home so we are surprised at his non appearance. Given his history we will strongly oppose bail if and when he surrenders."

  1. What does "surrendering to bail" mean? Surely, one only surrenders to bail if you have fronted in court and been released for another court date and / or you have been convicted of a crime and you surrender on bail for another appearance or sentencing. How can you surrender to bail when a case has not been heard?

  3. He must have agreed to certain conditions to be released last time from jail after his fraud conviction. Now hes back on the run. When is "enough, enough" with disrespecting the Thai justice system? What do you have to do to be actually held in a jail where you can not buy your self out?
    True to his other flights from justice and arrest warrents over the years he will eventually pay bail....who will actually enforce the arrest warrent....
    No body....and it goes on and on.

    1. You make a very valid point here Ally.
      Why are Thai Courts allowed to make what can at best be described as totally perverse decisions - practically unchallenged?
      Why are convicted felons released on what can only be described as "Court bail," without a date set down (in stone) for an appeal hearing?
      Why is the Thai legal system such a Mickey Mouse set up?

  4. He has to be paying way up the food chain in the justice system, don't you think? Like judges I would assume.

  5. I notice that Drew Noyse (also on the lam from Thai justice) is making all sorts of promises about returning to his children in Thailand and claiming what is rightfully his.

    Putting asside the impact hopes raised then dashed by false promises might have on his children, and the matter of 'is what he claims to be his in Thailand rightfully his', he might want to contact the wee scrote to see what help the convicted thief can offer.

    But he needs to get a move on. The bloated one can't come to Thailand without facing enactment of the arrest warrant against him, while the wee scrote, out on bail from one conviction and now on the lam from an arrest warrant for other alleged crimes can't be assured of his own liberty.

    But of course could the bloated one trust the wee scrote? Can he trust anyone in Thailand,? He is, afterall unable to return to Thailand, at the mercy of anyone who wants to take what is rightfully his.

    1. The only thing that now "rightfully" belongs to the bloated old convicted hobo is a 2 year stretch in a lovely Thai jail.

  7. He warrants an entry on Wiki? Walter Douglas has one and Drew Noyes also should have a Wiki page!

  8. Goudie is now claiming that you, the Ayrshire Post and owners Trinity Mirror have had an IPSO complaint from Hanks upheld. ( IPSO is the UK press complaints panel) I can find no reference to this on the IPSO website.

    1. Funnily enough neither can I. But I am sure IPSO would have told me if they had issued a judgment against me. I see Hanks says he is suing. You can take that with a pinch of salt to.
