BROWN ENVELOPE stuffed with cash is stolen from MP’s advisor
Ratanathibet police were called to Soi Samakhee in Muang district of Nonthaburi yesterday after two vehicles had their windows smashed.
Parked outside the Lamor Steakhouse was a damaged Vigo pick-up. Nothing was taken from this vehicle.
A BMW 320D had a back window smashed and the owner reported that a brown envelope containing 25,000 baht in cash had been taken from the back seat.
It then emerged that the victim of the crime is none other than Jessada Lamor, who is an advisor to Nonthaburi MP Jirapong Songwatcharaporn.
It seems Lamor felt that revealing to the press and police how well-connected he is may help to speed up the investigation.
Instead most of us are now wondering what exactly an advisor to a Thai MP does and why they carry around brown envelopes full of cash with them.
Jessada is an architect by profession and the son of a Pak Kret mayor who is also part of an influential local family in Nonthaburi. He claims he intends to move into politics himself in the future.
And they wonder why the youngsters in Thailand are protesting for a democratic society.
Police say they are studying the CCTV images in search of a clue.
