Southern Bangkok Criminal Court granted bail to Pol. Col. Wanthanaree Kornchayanan – the wife of Chinese gangster Tuhao – for securities of 2 million baht this afternoon.

Yannawa Police arrested and detained Wanthanaree Kornchayanan and nine others yesterday on transnational drug and money laundering charges.

Nine accomplices that are arrested are connected to the Yannawa Police‘s raid of Jinling Pub back in October, in which the police discovered a multitude of illegal drugs such as heroin, ecstasy, and ‘happy water.’

Police opened up a can of worms once they started to investigate Chaiyanat “Tuhao” กรณ์ชายานันท์, a Chinese national with a fake Thai ID who is alleged to be the kingpin of a sprawling Chinese criminal gang in Thailand.

Tuhao denies all charges filed against him.
