Jiratpisit “Boom” Jaravijit taken into police custody on Thursday.

Jiratpisit “Boom” Jaravijit, 27, has been held at the Criminal Court after his arrest yesterday at a Bangkok shopping mall where he was filming. The Crime Suppression Division said it was seeking arrest warrants for five or six additional suspects they say conspired to trick a Finnish businessman into investing Bitcoin worth almost 800 million baht in several shell companies.
