    Round up of unsavoury suspects

    News, Wassayos Ngamkham, Published on 27/12/2018

    ยป On the crime front, public attention was dominated to a large degree by news stories that were wide-ranging, unusual and controversial. The alleged bitcoin fraud had police and readers delving into the complexity of the cryptocurrency issue, which is new to most people, while the arrest of senior clergy in temple fund embezzlement cases tested people's faith in Buddhism. Meanwhile, the arrest of a policeman-turned-hitman responsible for at least two murders, brought back memories of his alleged connection to the kidnapping and murders of the wife and son of a jeweller holding vital clues in the 1995 stolen Saudi gems case. Police also claimed success in nabbing all overstayers in a long-running crackdown. However, the reportedly accidental shooting death of an Indian tourist in a gun battle between two rival Bangkok gangs undermined confidence in tourist safety.
