Construction tycoon Premchai Karnasuta and his three companions, who have been charged will illegally hunting in Kanchanaburi’s Thung Yai Naresuan Sanctuary, met with police investigators at the Thong Pha Phum Police Station at noon on Friday noon, ahead of the March 5 date in their third summons.
Royal Thai Police deputy commissioner Pol General Srivara Rangsibrahmanakul, who was there to follow progress investigating the case, joined officers in questioning the four suspects.
Srivara said about 70-80 per cent of the suspects’ testimony matched evidence collected in the case and the testimony of arresting officials. He said investigators would probe the contradictory parts and continue collecting evidence.
Srivara said that the police did not delay their investigation of Premchai and the other suspects as some have commented. The case investigation has progressed by 90 per cent and should be concluded by the time the suspects’ fourth-session bail expires on March 26 and they meet with court officials, he said.
