Thai police seize condo and luxury car in UFUN case

At 2pm, assistant national police chief Lt-General Suwira Songmetta and Consumer Protection Police Division deputy chief Pol Colonel Angkul Klaikleung led police to search a room on the 54th floor of the 70-storey luxury condominium. The unit worth Bt25 million (S$1 million)belonged to Rathawit Thiti-arounwat, a 31-year-old suspect in the UFUN case who is now in custody.

Besides seizing the apartment and documents, a television and a 1.5-metre-tall safe box, police also seized Rathawit's Lamborghini, which has a brand new red licence plate. Police found 60,000 Indonesian rupiah (S$7), a car insurance document and another licence plate inside the car.

Suwira said this operation stemmed from Rathawit's arrest on April 10.

He said police had seized assets in the UFUN case totalling about Bt600 million(S$24 million).

Asked about the identity of a 13th suspect, who police have issued an arrest warrant for, he declined to give details for fear the suspect would escape. Police are gathering evidence to get a warrant to arrest a 14th suspect soon, he said.
