PHUKET: -- The last of the assets seized by Anti-Money Laundering Office (Amlo) from the now-defunct Phuket-based 'zero-baht' Chinese tour operator Tranlee Travel Co Ltd went under the hammer yesterday (Mar 20), bringing the total raised to state coffers to more than B200 million.

 

The auction, held at the Phuket City Municipality offices in Phuket Town, was the fourth and final session to see all 151 assets seized in raids last year auctioned off, with yesterday’s session raising more than B18mn.

 

The auction yesterday saw 15 buses sold, some with “T L Better Way” emblazoned in Thai script on their sides. Unlike previous sessions, only 16 bidders attended the auction.

 

Paworanan Thammanyutanan, chair of the Amlo committee tasked with holding the auctions, pointed out that the mass sell-off of seized assets was at the order of Amlo chief Pol Gen Chaiya Siriamphankul.
