Oraphim Raksaphon – better known as Best – says the problem about the money relates to the fact that she does not have regular work. The credit problem is over an issue related to the purchase of a building that fell through.

She said that she will represent her documents with more evidence and hopes that everything will be sorted out.

Best is due to speak in Los Angeles on December 3rd and Boston on December 5th. She has been invited by the large Thai communities in those cities to be a guest speaker.

Admitting responsibility she said that the US embassy in Bangkok had acted properly according to their regulations but she hopes to get the decision reversed with some better paperwork.

She wanted to assure the US authorities that she was indeed travelling to speak and would be returning to Thailand after her assignments.
