The transactions committee of the Anti-Money Laundering Office has decided to confiscate 90 more items belonging to a network run by accused fraudster Pasit “Sin Sae Shogun” Ariyalapit, AMLO chief Pol Gen Chaiya Siri-amphankul said on Thursday.

The assets together worth Bt1 million were believed to have been purchased with illegally earned money. They include Bt140,000 in cash as well as gold ornaments, computers and cell-phones.

Chaiya said the AMLO would also assume temporary control of a condominium unit in Nonthaburi province already impounded by the Crime Suppression Division. 

He said the office is now waiting for people in the network to explain how they came to possess the assets.

Police are set to submit the case to public prosecutors on Friday. 

Pasit, founder and chief executive of food-supplement distributor WealthEver, and nine others face charges over an alleged pyramid investment scheme and a travel junket debacle that left more than 1,000 would-be tourists stranded at Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport in April.
