It was confirmed yesterday that the lottery vendor called Suwat who was so sure earlier that he had sold the tickets to complainant Phansak has now changed his story.

This prompted Phansak’s father Weera and aunt Bang-orn to say: “Now we’re confused”. But they still expressed confidence that the new police team investigating would get to the bottom of the drama that is gripping the nation.

Vendor Suwat refused to let the media take his picture yesterday saying it could affect the case.

Then came a further tidbit – the person who cashed the tickets and got the money is believed to be the wife of a rich man who owns a gas station in Roi-Et.

She has already been issued with two summonses. If she fails to respond to the third an arrest warrant will be issued for her, said investigator Phaisan.

The woman – not named in the Sanook article – said she was not yet ready to give evidence.

Phaisan said he had interviewed ten witnesses and there is a mountain of evidence in the case that he hopes to have resolved within the next week.

Phansak’s winning tickets were for the national lottery drawn on August 16th. After reporting his win to police he realized that his tickets had been taken from his house.
