Prosecutor postpones decision on money laundering case against Dhammachayo

The public prosecutor has decided to postpone a decision on a case in which Phra Dhammachayo was charged with money laundering and receiving stolen valuables along with a handful of people in connection with Klongchan Credit Union Cooperatives.

Lt Somnoek Siangkong, spokesman of the Office of the Attorney-General, said Tuesday that the decision had to be postponed to October 6 as the public prosecutor was yet to receive additional evidences from the Department of Special Investigation.

Also because there are many people affected by the alleged fraud in the cooperatives and the damage was substantial as well as the fact that the case involves a huge amount of documents to be examined, he said the public prosecutor had to be very cautious and to ensure fairness for all parties concerned.

In the meantime, two suspects in the case who were granted bail reported themselves to the public prosecutor on Tuesday. They are Mrs Saranya Manmud and Mrs Thongpin Kanlom, former manager and former vice chairman of Klongchan Credit Union Cooperatives respectively.
