The Government's Savings Bank (GSB) is considering filing a police complaint against PCC Development and Construction Co (PCC), the firm at the centre of the police station construction scandal, for double dipping.

Department of Special Investigation (DSI) chief Tharit Pengdit yesterday said the bank wanted to file a complaint with the DSI after finding irregularities with the PCC collateral account.

PCC allegedly used the same documents to withdraw money deposited in order to send the money to its subsidiary’s account.

He cited one construction material order was used to repeatedly withdraw a sum of Bt93 million, while a material order was used to repeatedly withdraw a sum of Bt42 million and the money was sent to PCC’s subsidiary, E Built Co.

The firm also allegedly used expenses from other projects, work done before it signed the construction contract with the Royal Thai Police (such as the U-dome, the Eua Arthorn Housing and the Night Safari). It allegedly withdrew construction work installments from its GSB bank account and used fake documents to move the money to its subsidiary account, he said.
