The Department of Special Investigation (DSI) has decided to seek indictments against a group of 16 people accused of running a Myanmar-based investment scam estimated to have cost victims more than 300 million baht in losses.
DSI deputy chief Suriya Singkamol said the suspects, led by Supattha Chantarangsi, 68, chairwoman of Hujjee Group Co, face several charges including fraud and publishing false information.
Ms Supattha was accused with 15 others of luring more than 1,200 companies to invest in 78 multi-million-baht infrastructure projects in Myanmar’s Mon state with the help of a Myanmar Mon state royal descendant named “Chao Thepyothin” who turned out to be an imposter. The schemes, likewise, did not exist.
According to Pol Maj Suriya, the other suspects include Kosin Jina-on, former editor of a local magazine who helped create a website containing false information.
