The Criminal Court decided today to release former celebrity Suteewan Taweesin on five-million baht bail, but ordered her to wear an electronic monitoring bracelet and seized her passport.
Suteewan, her boyfriend, Pattanapon Kunjara Na Audhaya, and four other suspects were indicted in May on fraud charges and violations of the computer crime law for their alleged involvement in the Forex 3-D Ponzi investment scheme. All were initially denied bail by the court, due to the high amount of losses stemming from the alleged fraud.
The scheme was created by a brokerage company, RMS Familia, established in 2015 and run by Apiruk Kothi, currently being held on remand with several other suspects.
Suteewan, who has been incarcerated for about six months at the Central Women’s Correctional Institution, is expected to be released this evening.
