A man suspected of having falsely claimed responsibility for a fatal road accident re-enacted his alleged crime at the Nakhon Phanom Provincial Court on Thursday.



Sap Wapi told police he received Bt170,000 from teacher Suriya Nuancharoen to submit to the court as compensation promised to the family of the accident’s victim. 

Deputy Metropolitan Police Commissioner Pol General Wirachai Songmetta on Thursday brought Sap to the court for re-enactment of the accident. 

Suriya is a close friend of Jomsap Saenmuangkhot, who was convicted of and jailed for causing the death of the victim in a hit-and-run accident back in 2005.

Both Sap and Suriya are now facing charges of perjury.
