The Pak Chong Department of Land Transport were displeased when they found out that a woman who reported her licence was stolen was found out to be lying.

They went to police to report Cholakorn Kaewwinsaeng after they became aware that she claimed on Facebook to say that she had been charged over the top for fines because she was a Mercedes Benz driver. 

The DLT say she was lying to them to get a new licence in an effort to avoid paying fines. 

Capt Preecha Meephiw of the Nong Sarai constabulary was told that Cholakorn went to the DLT to say she had lost her licence in Bangkok. It was valid until July 2023 and she was believed and given a replacement after paying 105 baht. 

Then came the Facebook post in which the woman said that fines of 300 and 500 were not good enough for the police – they wanted to charge her 1,000 baht……because she had a fancy car. 

Police will be issuing a summons for the Benz driver, as she was called in the Thai Rath story, for giving false information in pursuance of obtaining a document.
