The case against TV host Sorayuth Suthatnajinda is set to drag on. Fresh charges in relation to the multi million baht advertising swindle have been accepted by the court.
Sorayuth – one of the most recognizable and erstwhile popular figures on Thai television with a booming voice and larger than life personality – has already been convicted along with others in the case reported Thairath.
He has been handed down a 13 year 4 month sentence (reduced from 20 years after he helped prosecutors) for his part in falsifying documents and misrepresenting advertising revenues. Others associated with him and their companies have similarly been convicted.
Fresh charges relating to the swindle that prosecutors say are different from those already settled were laid at the central criminal court in Ratchada Pisek road yesterday. MCOT were tricked out of some 138 million baht in matters relating to the original charges.
Bail was approved at 300,000 baht per person. They are free until the court reconvenes in August.
