More nominees, involved in the company that ‘owned’ the Phoenix, have been arrested and charged. Financial record shows that the money was being transferred to a Chinese owner.

A press conference was held yesterday (August 27) at the Phuket Provincial Police Station led by Deputy Commissioner-General of the Royal Thai Police Gen Rungroj Saengkram, Deputy Chief of the Tourist Police Bureau Maj Gen Surachate Hakparn and others.

Gen Rungroj say, “The TC Blue Company Limited is the owner of the Phoenix which records show has three shareholders – Ms Woraluck ‘Yui’ Rueakchaiyakarn (who is now in the Phuket Provincial Prison), 31 year old Jakkapan Rueakchaiyakan and 50 year Yindee Rueakchaitakarn. Woraluck is the main person who has authority for the running of the company.”

Maj Gen Surachate says, “We have evidences that shows how the money was being transferred to a real Chinese owner. The Phuket Provincial Court has issued four arrested warrants: Ms Worraluck who is a Thai nominee, Chinese man Lei Hou, who has provided most of the capital and the real company owner, Yindee and Jakkapan.
