Tourist police, armed with a criminal court warrant, arrested a Dutch national, Mr. Robert Dahan, son of the world’s eleventh richest man. He and his lady lawyer are accused of forging divorce documents from his Thai wife in order to defraud her out of millions of baht. The billionaire’s son refused to admit culpability. However, police brought him to the criminal office to process the case. According to the police, Mr. Dahan was attracted to a katoey (lady of the second category) and hired a lawyer to forge divorce documents from his Thai wife in order to get his share of their property. Another Thai man who was involved in forging the documents escaped.
On 14 December 2007, Police Lieutenant Colonel Boodrod Ang-garb, Tourist Police Investigator, requested that a police team apprehend the three suspects. Mrs. Prom Nawanok (46), under warrant no. 2378/2007, dated 2 August 2007, was arrested at A.B.A. Asia Company, located at 413/33 Tappaya Road, near the Hanuman Roudabout. Mr. Robert Dahan, under warrant no. 2380/2007, dated 2 August 2007, was nabbed at a beer bar near Jomtien Complex. Arrest warrant no. 2379/2007, dated 2 August 2007 was issued for Mr. Preeda Kulpreeda, address 148 Moo 3, Baan Chaang, Rayong.

However, Mr. Preeda was, apparently, alert to the impending arrest and escaped. All three were charged with conspiring to destroy, hide or take away somebody else’s will or document; and of lying to authorities in order to cause another person damages. Crime Suppression Investigator, Police Lieutenant Colonel Nat Promthep, led a police team in the arrests.

Police declared that Mr. Dahan, the son of the world’s eleventh richest man, was attracted to a katoey and therefore, wanted a divorce from his current wife, Mrs. Nongluck Jeruwnauk (31). The couple had two children. Mr. Dahan wanted all the marital property, including the house, which was worth 130 million baht. He hired Mrs. Prom, a lawyer, and Mr. Preeda to fake divorce documents. Eventually, Mr. Dahan managed to acquire sixty million baht from his alleged wrong doing.

When Mrs. Nongluck learned about the fake documents, she brought all the evidence to her lawyers, Jorana Wantang and Preecha Prasertsak at Baan Got Mai Law Firm. She also reported the alleged crime to Police Lieutenant Colonel Nat Promthep. After an investigation, it was determined that the evidence pointed to the strong possibility that the suspects had forged the documents. Police, then, issued arrest warrants for all three suspects, but Mr. Preeda is still at large.

When Mr. Dahan and Mrs. Prom were arrested, Mr. Dahan was quite belligerent toward Mrs. Nongluck’s legal team. He was angry about being arrested and bragged that his father was the world’s eleventh richest man. Mr. Dahan and Mrs. Prom denied all charges. Police Lieutenant Colonel Boonrod Ang-garb detained the two suspects so they could be turned over to the Crime Suppression Police for further investigation
