Moreover he was a member of Pheu Thai Party from 2008 to 2018 and liked playing golf but not at Alpine golf course.

In this alleged police letter dated Jan. 10 and signed by an inspector at Bangyikhan police station, the former deputy premier was told that a police report on fraud charges against the first three suspects,  Ms. Thanyawarin, the woman he was involved with, Mr. Jirawut, her estranged husband and Mrs. Thanyawan, her mother, had been completed. 

Moreover the inspector had asked for and got an arrest warrant issued for Mr. Ponganan, Thanyawarin’s father, by the Talingchan criminal court on Jan. 5.

The former deputy premier is suing the four of them for colluding in swindling him and wants the dowry he paid and other assets transferred to Thanyawarin returned.
