CityNews – The Director of Sri Sangwan School for Children with Disability in Chiang Mai has reached out to the press to clarify that the accusations that the school is unfairly managing the 10 million baht won by those who performed in the Wheel Chair Dance Team that won Thailand Got Talent in 2014.

 

The school has faced accusations following the Facebook page queentogetherisone posting a status that claimed Tussanai Boonmee, a former member of the Wheel Chair Dance team, is now having to live in poor welfare housing in Phitsanulok despite the team winning 10 million baht in 2014, 500,000 baht of that was his.

 

According to the post, Tussanai has yet to receive all the money, with Sri Sangwan School only giving him 100,000 baht every year for the next five years. The accusation brought up concerns about the financial transparency of the school and questions as to why they wouldn’t pay him his prize money in full.

 

On July 15th, the Director of Sri Sangwan School, Puangtong Sriwilai, clarified the allegations with the press, explaining that as the school sponsored all the costs of the team’s participation in the show, they school took charge of allocating the award money.
