Thai owner of ‘Phoenix’ now in custody

The Thai ‘owner’ of ‘Phoenix’ remains in custody after she surrendered following the issuing of an arrest warrant.

Arrest warrants for the ‘Phoenix’ owner, 26 year old Woraluck Rueakchaiyakan from Phuket and boat chief engineer, 56 year old Onjan Kanhayotee from Phetchabun, were issued last Friday (July 13).

They face charges of a “reckless act causing death, serious injuries, mental and bodily harm”.

On Saturday (July 14), Woraluck surrendered herself at the Phuket Provincial Police Station.

The Phuket Provincial Police Commander Maj Gen Teeraphol Thipjaroen says, “We opposed bail for the boat’s owner. Worraluck was taken to the Phuket Provincial Court and now remains in custody.

“Worraluck has denied the charges. However we are collecting more evidence to continue the investigation. If anyone is found to be involved with the case, we will take action without any exception.”
