    Chonburi official caught her female secretary allegedly stealing ten million baht

    A Chonburi official caught her 29-year-old female secretary who had allegedly been stealing her money in her bedroom for the last five years, worth over 10 million baht.


    The suspect was a secretary to the female mayor of the Nong Mai Daeng subdistrict in Chonburi’s Mueang district, Mrs. Tuangthip Phawasutchaikit. She brought CCTV footage of her own secretary, Ms. Sunanta Suebkaew (29), allegedly stealing money from her bedroom to file a report at the Don Hua Lo police station, leading to Sunanta’s arrest.

    In the CCTV footage, Sunanta was clearly seen rummaging all over her boss’s bedroom and stealing money every day for over 21 times, the Don Hua Lo police revealed. The mayor said she did not notice anything about her missing cash over the past five years until a big sum of money — sometimes 5,000 baht and even 20,000 baht — began to mysteriously disappear from her bedroom.

    At first, Tuangthip suspected every person around her even her own daughter, who told her that she might be overly paranoid. She then decided to install a security camera inside her bedroom without telling anyone.


    The camera successfully captured the culprit, which turned out to be her personal secretary, Sunanta, the mayor told police. She said she was elated that the culprit whom she described as being “extremely ungrateful” finally got to pay for her actions. The total amount of stolen money was no less than 10 million, the mayor claimed.

    Sunanta was charged with theft and embezzlement in the dwelling. She reportedly admitted to her allegations, claiming she was fueled by her greed. An investigation also determined that the suspect had five bank accounts, one of which contained over 4 million baht, a sharp contrast to her salary, which was only 12,000 baht a month.

    Why would the secretary have daily access to her bedroom?

    And how would a public servant have 10 million lying around?

    You beat me to it. Investigate the victim is what seems most appropriate here.

    That comes out to about 33,000 per month. How much did this bureaucrat earn that she didn't notice that much missing each month!

    Ms P does cost accounting, says the payoff factored in to tenders for government contracts is often eight to eleven percent.
    That's a few baht when their contracts are often 100-300m.
    Payoffs are all cash.
    Banks must also be complicit in this.
    It's the way things are

    And the arrogance is almost Africa-league level with not thinking about the public knowing you're a corrupt shite, swilling at the trough meant to benefit the general population.

    We had someone of that ilk in Chanthaburi; magnificent house, BMW and Merc with the obligatory pickup, daughters studying in Australia etc etc nothing hidden. He worked for the tax department.

    ...that's the interesting part about corruption here: no need to hide unexplainable material wealth as everyone's on the take...and no one questions the apparently gross mismatch between published salaries and a compound full of "mansions," garages packed with imported cars, expensive overseas shopping trips and an army of servants...

    They're not completely unaware of it, but what they can they do?

    To whom are you going to report a corrupt official? The one above him taking his share of the loot?

    Look at Joe Ferrari. Absolute impunity until he was caught on video murdering someone.
