A continuing investigation….
COURT JUDGEMENT WAS FAKED
THAI GOVT OFFICIALS WHO STOOD TO GAIN MILLIONS PESTERED HOSPITAL OFFICIALS FOR CONDITION OF DYING ‘ACCIDENT VICTIM’AND TRIED TO MAKE MILLIONS SELLING HIS ASSETS BEFORE HIS LIFE-SUPPORT WAS TURNED OFF.
His nickname us Pui and in the photo below raising his hands to his face Peerasak Srirungsukjinda of the Thai Government’s ‘Commission to Investigate Corruption & Misconduct and Enhance Good Governance’ is misconducting himself in a progressive act of corruption.
His brother Nattachai Srirungsukpinit, nicknamed Odd, an advisor to Thailand’s Prime Minister is a poster boy for bad governance and they are in this act together. Their Jinda Property Company is going to make a killing.
Pui is trying to sell off a parcel of projected £74 million palatial resort on the holiday island of Phuket – It’s in ‘The Lost Kingdom’ of British barrister Steven Granville, the palatial to be resort which is now withering away in the background.
Pui and his brother Odd had promised Granville through their financial broker, Praphol Milinthajinda, who represents many Thai politicians, that they would invest to complete the project, if Granville handed over his shares and the land deed as a guarantee.
Granville had agreed but stipulated everything must be returned if no investment was forthcoming. He had it in black and white.
But why bother invest when you can sell something you have not even had to buy? The sugar cane had entered the Thai elephant’s mouth. And when Pui was showing his Chinese visitor around Granville was no longer a stumbling block to the sale.
Two weeks earlier Granville had to be evacuated back to Britain. His traumatic head injuries were caused in a motorcycle accident, say Thai Police. ‘All lies.’ says his mother Samantha Simmonds. “My son was severely beaten about the head and was the subject of a cold-blooded murder. He had no other injuries or even abrasions. His clothes were not even torn.”
Granville had been found by the side of the road near Karon Hill, Phuket on March 23rd, 2013. And Peerasak was first to the hospital at the crack of dawn posing as a close friend and expressing concern. He got there even before police, say hospital staff. And staff noted a call too from Nattachai, the PM’s advisor.
‘They were not relatives. They had no right to pester hospital staff,’ said a hospital staffer, who has since also spoken to the family’s representative. ‘And we had no authority to give them information’. *
The staffer added: “We cannot comment on the cause of injuries. But we have supplied the full medical report to the family and independent authorities can judge whether the injuries are the type received in a motorcycle accident.”
Were the brothers genuinely concerned? Or did they have money on their mind? When representatives of the family requested through an intermediary for the return of Granville’s company and land quoting the agreement, the reply from Pui was quite curt. ‘You have no power in Thailand.’ *
The Chinese businessman, was protected from the tropical heat by umbrellas as he was courteously shown around. But the sale was stopped because the land was the subject of a court order.
And in this sorry story of politics, ‘nak reng’ (Thai strong men) and greed, that appears to be one of the few morally correct decisions ever made.
HOW A COURT JUDGEMENT WAS FAKED
Granville’s family have been pursuing the matter through the courts and police for four years. His mother Samantha took a criminal case for fraud, which the Supreme Court has now finally ruled will be heard, and also a civil case for damages which was also delayed and delayed.
The civil was against the brothers’ ‘agent’ Praphol Milinthajinda, the man named in the Banyin ‘murder for gain’ scandal and agent for the brothers, and two young females nominees, a secretary and an office manager in the brothers’ Jinda Property company, for it was into their hands that Granville’s assets had been transferred,
Eventually on October 29th this year, even though the two brothers had not paid a penny for the project, and the new young female shareholders’ only defence was that they knew nothing but just took orders from the brothers, the case for civil damages was thrown out by Judge and is now on appeal.
Judge Sathorn Jarernpanich ruled against the family. But he refused to read out the full judgement. As he did so his co-judge, a woman, Watchara Chanthawara walked out of the court, and did not sign the day’s proceedings. And this may be why.
This is a copy of the last page of the judgement in the case. It has one paragraph crossed out by pen.
That shows that a judgement was made ordering the second and third defendants (who held the shares) to comply within 30 days. By crossing out one paragraph beginning ‘Forcing the second defendant’ it completely reversed the decision made by the panel. They no longer had to comply with anything.
Here is the English translation. This material has now been sent to the President of the Supreme Court for urgent review.
Normally after a judgment all parties copies get a copy within a week. In this case it took a month, which is not surprising because the whole 29-page document would have to be re-written to fit the complete reversal.
Lawyers are currently studying the new re-written judgment. But it is understood there remains a copy of the original. And one thing is known. It was altered in the Judge’s Chambers on the morning it was read out, because it states who was in court at the time.
And as for the brothers not being able to sell the land on to other foreigners. It seems they have found a way to make money another way. They have put a parcel of land up against a 30 million-baht (US$1 million) loan.
