Thonburi  Court has freed on bail a 30 year old woman who has been accused of animal cruelty.

Wararat Krasae, nicknamed Sun, walked free after her lawyer posted 40,000 baht bail.

The woman appeared in the public for the first time at the court on Ekkachai Road after some animal lovers’ group filed complaints with police last week that she had tortured or even killed animals, mostly cats, she adopted from animal shelters.

Some reports claimed that she had adopted at least 27 cats from animal shelters. Most of them died or were unaccounted for.

An animal-shelter owner, Issaraporn Samutgalin, last week claimed that Wararat had adopted a cat from her in the afternoon but then cut off all communication with her in the evening. Wararat claimed that she had given the kitten to her friends because she was allergic to cats’ hair.

After negotiations, Wararat agreed to settle with the animal-shelter operator in the presence of police.

On that day, she gave a carcass of the cat to Issaraporn, claiming it had been bitten by a dog.

The owner then filed a complaint with police that she had violated the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act. She surrendered to police on Sunday and denied the accusation. Yesterday the woman managed to avoid the media waiting for her.

Meanwhile Pol Colonel Wuthichai Thaiwat, a police chief of Phetkasem Police Station told reporters that police would have not more than 30 days to collect evidence and witnesses’ accounts before forwarding the case to the court.

“At present, we are waiting for an autopsy on the carcass of the cat from Kasetsart University’s Vet Faculty and lab results from cat hair and blood traces from Wararat’s places.”

Chronically ill man jumps to his death from Bangkok apartment | The Thaiger

by The Nation

A 66 year old man who lived alone and suffered from chronic ailments has been found dead outside a 15 floor apartment building in Bangkok’s Bang Sue district.

It is believed he committed suicide by jumping from the rooftop this morning.

Taopoon police were alerted at 11am that Charn Wanngern died after he fell to the ground in front of the entrance to Building A of Taopoon Mansion.

Police found a suicide note in the man’s room on the 15th floor. No foul play is suspected in the man’s death.

The note also had the mobile phone number of his close friend. Police called him and learned from the friend that Charn used to own a cabaret troupe in Silom and he recently fell and had been suffering from chronic aliments since.

Charn needed to see a doctor regularly and the friend had to take him to his hospital as he lived alone. The friend said he had a schedule to take Charn to see his doctor this Friday.

Police said Charn’s room was on the west side but he fell from the east side of the building so he likely went up to the roof and jumped down.

Man arrested over 50 million baht scam | The Thaiger

A man has been arrested for allegedly defrauding around 100 stock market investors of about 50 million baht.

Pol Lt Gen Suchate Hakparn, the Immigration Bureau chief who also heads the economic crime centre, says 52 year old Jittaraphon Nisarat was arrested on Tuesday at his apartment in Bangkok’s Phra Khanong district.

Surachate says Jittaraphon was arrested under a warrant issued by the Criminal Court on Friday.

Jittaraphon was accused of collaborating with two other accomplices to convince over 100 victims to invest in their company with a promise of a 10 per cent yield per month for their investment. The investors were asked to invest at least 300,000 baht.

The investors were told that Jittaraphon’s company would invest in the Wall Street stock market for profits in short sales.

Surachate said the investors received the promised returns for just the first three or four months but Jittaraphon then stopped paying the yields and closed his company and disappeared.

Surachate said police are still hunting for the two accomplices, 40 year old Sorachat Klamsaeng and 34 year old Pirayuth Arj-amnuay.
