Public prosecutors have ordered the Department of Special Investigation to get further evidence in the alleged embezzlement at Klongchan Credit Union Cooperative Ltd, saying current details are insufficient and many suspects have different patterns of beh

The Office of Attorney General spokesman Nantasak Poolsak said there was already ground in pursue the case, which may have resulted in a total loss of more than Bt12 billion to cooperative members, but more evidence was needed.
A source said it was likely that a non-indictment would later be handed to Jiradej Worraphiankul, an aide to caretaker finance minister Kittiratt Na Ranong, and Ratpracha Co Ltd chairman Watchanont Nawaissararak, as there was insufficient evidence against them.
The DSI is investigating the roles of former Cooperative chairman Suphachai Srisuppha-aksorn, former deputy finance chief Saranya Srisamak, former director Laphas Somekham, and former chief loan officer Krissada Bunmark.
