BILLION BAHT IN ASSETS SEIZED FROM GANGS

More than one billion baht of assets were seized during a nationwide crackdown on international crime gangs notorious for online football gambling, according to Crime Suppression Division (CSD) chief Pongpat Chayaphan. Pol Maj-Gen Pongpat said the gangs posed a threat to national security because they ran a nationwide network and were involved in various crimes, especially online football gambling. The rackets were connected to crimes such as kidnapping, extortion, drug trafficking, document forgery, money laundering and murder. However, no suspects had been identified so far.

A crackdown called "Abubaka" was mounted by more than 100 uniformed and plainclothes police in 58 areas of 16 provinces from Bangkok to Songkhla early yesterday. Abubaka is the name of a Malaysian drug trafficker who ran a drug dealing network with ethnic people. More than 100 bank accounts, gold bars, and cash worth more than a billion baht were among properties seized during the crackdown.

Police believe they were acquired with the proceeds of ill-gotten gains.

How can you seize assets such as bank accts. if you have no suspects and no prosecution. :o

The fact that no suspects have been identified also begs the question how can they state it is an international gang.

How can they be sure of nationality if they have no names.

Well, that is the billion baht question.

Of course, only foreigners can do so much wrong.

I think what the reporter meant to say is that the police have not released the names of their suspects as there is an on-going investigation, however the chance to get a press release out was not ignored. :D English is such a fun language when the reporter had learn it away from his/her home.

when you are paid a percentage of traffic fines, drug bust money, etc the bib will take all they can see, smell and hear about. The mention that they are under paid with such low base salaries reminds me of some of the CEO whose salary is only a pittance but oh the benefits that they draw???? The imported autos, homes in select moo baans, vacation homes, stock holdings, etc of some of these jokers should make the powers that be take notice. Then maybe they do.

Well its a big improvement over their previous 'busts'. I remember once they heroically arrested a bunch of Evildoers in a major anti-gambling sting. But somehow only about 200 baht in cash was 'found' :D

The only heroicsthere was what the evil doers did with the rest of the money..mmmmm :o
