Thirty one people to be called in over cyanide use

Thirty one people to be called in over cyanide use

According to deputy national police commander Pol Gen Surachate Hakparn, authorities would call 31 people, including actress Preechaya “Ice” Phongthananikorn, next week to answer allegations that they bought cyanide for improper uses.

The Hazardous Substances Act is thought to have been broken by 31 people, according to reports submitted by the Department of Industrial Works (DIW) to the Crime Suppression Division.

One of them is Ms. Preechaya, while another is the alleged serial killer Sararat “Aem Cyanide” Rangsiwuthaporn, who is charged with killing 14 people and one other attempted murder.

According to reports, Ms. Preechaya purchased cyanide from the same supplier as Ms. Sararat to use as a pesticide.

According to Pol Gen Surachate, those found guilty of buying cyanide for illegal purposes face a maximum term of three years in prison and a fine of up to 300,000 baht, or both.

Officers from the Crime Suppression Division will call all 31 defendants to recognize their guilt and launch an investigation to see if any officers from the DIW engaged in misconduct, he said.

This comes after Ms. Sararat, who is suspected of poisoning her victims with cyanide, was taken into custody.

Officers have deepened their investigation into the matter and discovered that cyanide was imported, transferred, and bought illegally, which prompted the DIW’s lawsuit.

Ms. Sararat is accused of more than 75 offenses, including premeditated murder, attempted murder, theft resulting in death, and forgery in 15 cases spanning from 2015 to this year, according to Pol Gen. Surachate, who stated this in June.

Nakhon Pathom, Samut Sakhon, Kanchanaburi, Phetchaburi, Ratchaburi, Udon Thani, and Mukdahan were the seven provinces where the 15 instances were distributed out.

After examining more than 900 witnesses over the course of three months, police concluded their investigation into Ms. Sararat.

Director of the DIW Jullapong Thaveesri stated in May that only 14 companies are permitted to legally import up to 80 metric tons of cyanide annually and that anyone who used more than 100 kg in the previous six months must notify the DIW.
