A company run by the Thai wife of one of the money laundering gang is believed to have acted as a front for the crime. 

The Oriental Lodge was also found not to be operating with the required licenses and is being prosecuted separately for this. 

DSI chief Phaisit Wongmeuang confirmed the raid at the hotel yesterday as reported by Komchadluek.
