The Tuhao Scandal Is Being Handled As A Special Investigation


The Department of Special Investigation will handle the money laundering case against Tuhao, a Chinese national who is accused of operating illicit companies in Thailand, as a high-priority case. Prior to this, the police had already taken about 4 billion baht in property from this suspect, including land titles, homes, automobiles, and motorbikes.

In a recent announcement, the Ministry of Justice stated that Mr. Tuhao’s case will be investigated by the DSI. In addition to representatives from the DSI and the Narcotics Control Board, Minister of Justice Somsak Thepsuthin made the announcement.

Mr. Chuwit Kamolvisit, a former lawmaker and nightlife business magnate who has been uncovering the network of a Chinese crime syndicate involved in the so-called gray companies in Thailand, sought the surrender of this case to the DSI.

Finally, Mr. Chuwit’s plea was granted by the DSI. The division is presently looking into the possibility of more participants.

Police Major Yuthana Praedam, Deputy Director General of the DSI, said that the prosecutor general’s office and the police are still looking into further criminal allegations related to Mr. Tuhao.
