    Thai government returns over 300 million baht to fraud victims in China

    BANGKOK, 6 June 2019 (NNT) - Preecha Charoensahayanon, acting secretary general of the Anti-Money Laundering Commission, said Deputy Prime Minister Wissanu Krea-ngam and AMLC Chairman Chaiya Siri-ampholkul have left for China to return the money which had been illegally collected from Chinese fraud victims.


    A high-level Chinese security official received a sum of 356 million baht in a bank savings account which was to be returned to a total of 33,928 victims in China. The Chinese authorities thanked the Thai authorities for having returned the money to foreign fraud victims for the first time.


    The Thai and Chinese authorities have discussed close cooperation in effort to crack down on transnational crimes, prevent and suppress terrorism and raise the confidence in international judicial systems.

    It's not even that. It's an excuse to grease.
