Teacher Preecha seeks DSI intervention in B30m lottery dispute 

Written by Thailand News

School teacher Preecha Kraikruan and a lottery vendor on Thursday (March 22) petitioned the Ministry of Justice for what they claimed was “unfair treatment and power abuse” in the handling of the 30-million baht lottery scandal by the Crime Suppression Division (CSD) police.

Mr Preecha and Mrs Rattanaporn Suthathip, alias Jeh Babin, were accompanied by their lawyer when they submitted the petition to Justice Minister ACM Prajin Juntong calling for the Department of Special Investigatiin (DSI) to take over the case for investigation from the police as a special case.

Both claimed in the petition that it was unfair when the CSD police arrested them and charged them even though they were innocent.

Mr Preecha remained adamant that he was the real owner of the five first-prize winning lottery tickets, while Mrs Rattanaporn insisted she sold the winning tickets to Mr Preecha.

Mr Preecha accused a retired police officer Pol Lt Charoon Wimoon of taking the five first-prize winning lottery tickets that he bought and lost them probably at a market in Kanchanaburi.

Lottery vendor Rattanaporn came out to support Mr Preecha’s claim over lottery ownership.

However, Mr Preecha and Mrs Rattanaporn ended up being arrested by CSD police on Feb 28. They face charges of filing a false complaint with police, giving false information to officials and framing another person in a criminal case.
