Central Investigation Bureau (CIB) commissioner and Crime Suppression Division (CSD) on Thursday morning went to the Criminal Court in Bangkok to seek warrant for the arrest of two prime suspects in connection with the 30-million baht lottery ticket scandal.
CIB commissioner Pol Lt-Gen Thitirat Nongharnpitak did not disclose the names of the two suspects the CSD police wanted for filing false complaint about the lost lottery tickets but the CSD police were deployed in front of the house of the school teacher Preecha Kraikruan in Kanchanaburi province this morning.
An army of news journalists was gathering at the court as the CIB commissioner arrived for the warrant.
He said after the arrest warrant was issued by court, a press conference scheduled for 1.30pm at the Royal Thai Police will be held.
RTP commissioner Pol Gen Chakthip Chaijinda will chair the press conference to detail the arrest of the two suspects who will be escorted to Bangkok to appear at the press conference.
Meanwhile Mr Preecha told reporters who gathered in front of his home on Thursday morning that he had a nice dream last night.
He said he dreamed of God coming out to protect him, had his hair cut, and had a bath.
He said he was not worried as he was the real owner of the 5 lottery tickets that won 30 million baht in total.
