Chaovarin convicted of cheating

The Criminal Court Friday convicted Chaovarin Lathasaksiri of cheating, giving him a 2-year imprisonment term.

The former Pheu Thai party list MP during May 1-June 30, 2007 launched a campaign to sell Jatukam amulets. He told the buyers of the incantation at the Emerald Buddha Temple and the City Shrine, which was proved untrue.

Thanks to his confession, the imprisonment term was reduced from 3 years.

No probation is granted.
