Today, six additional suspects, including Pattanapon Kunjara Na Ayudhaya and Suteewan Taweesin, a celebrity couple, have been charged with fraud and violations of computer crime law for their alleged involvement in the Forex-3D Ponzi investment scheme.
According to Kosonlavat Intujunyong, the Deputy spokesman for the Office of Attorney-General, the suspects will be informed of the decision and escorted to court for arraignment.
In addition, Chatchai Kochatin, Teepatsakorn Kimwangtako, Suranat Narkmusik, and Aryuwat Chaimethanarakul were also indicted today.
Whether bail will be granted to any of the suspects is up to the court, but bail was denied for the first two groups of suspects. The Forex-3D investment scheme was established in 2015 by RMS Familia, a brokerage company run by Apiruk Kothi.
Apiruk and other suspects are currently in custody. Celebrities were recruited to promote the investment, and investors were promised returns of about 10% per month on a minimum investment of 5,000 baht, which attracted tens of thousands of people to the scheme.
