The national police chief Pol Gen Chakthip Chaijinda said today (Feb 13) that an organized gang was behind the attempt to claim ownership of the 30-million baht First Prize lottery tickets in Kanchanaburi province.

 

Without giving any details, he said that the gang at work was similar to the gang involving school teacher Mrs Jomsap Sanmuangkote who allegedly produced false witnesses and evidence to demand a retrial of her case in the hope that she would be substantially compensated.

 

Pol Gen Chakthip said in the end, there would be someone in this case facing legal action for making false claim on the ownership of the lottery tickets.

 

The police chief said that the Crime Suppression Division (CSD) police which have taken over investigation of the lottery case from the Provincial Police Region 7 were expected to wrap up the case within the end of this month and, by then, it would be clear who is the real owner of the five winning lottery tickets.
