At 4.30 pm, on 15 October, Mr. Sanee Rattanajarern, Commander in Chief of Pattaya Prison announced that his team had arrested Mr. Pongsuriya Maprang-On, [30], who had secreted 14 tablets of Yah Bah in his stomach.

Maprang-On was arrested on 9 March 2009, and was sentenced to 2 years by the Court of First Instance, though he requested a retrial. On 12 October 2009, he was taken to the Pattaya court to hear the ruling. While he was waiting in the temporary room for prisoners, he contacted a Mr. Moo so he could deliver the drugs for him.

Mr. Moo gave him the drugs, hiding them in a fried-rice box. As soon as Maprang-On received the fried-rice, he swallowed the drugs straight away.

Not too long after that, when he returned to the court, the prison custodian was told about Maprang-On smuggling. The officials then investigated him and forced him to take a laxative, after which they found the evidence.

Maprang-On confessed and said he had wanted to keep some drugs for himself and some to sell to his friends in the prison. He said it was his first time smuggling drugs this way.

Maprang-On was originally arrested and sentenced for possession of 140 Yah Bah tablets. He was released in 2007. He was arrested again in March this year and is now on appealing for retrial.

However, Mr. Sanee Rattanajarern, Commander in Chief, said this time Maprang-On’s case must be prosecuted seriously.
