Pattaya, the 31st of July 2010 [Pattaya Daily News]: On Sunday evening, Major General Suweera Songmetta (Director of the Transnational Crime Suppression Police Region 2) and a team of local officers raided the “Tourist in Thailand” tour guide offices located on the ground floor of the Ambassador Hotel in Jomtien.

The raid was instigated following the prior arrest of Mr. Andrey Akulov [43] a Russian national, last week. Mr. Akulov, the company owner, was arrested recently in possession of 30 bottles of an illegal form of herbal Thai whiskey, believed to be responsible for the death of several people in Pattaya. In the illegal alcohol, resultant examinations found traces of several poisonous snakes, centipedes, scorpions, frogs and gecko’s.

Further investigations into Mr. Akulov’s business revealed that he had been operating with a Thai partner, Mr. Chai Paisaltanadetch [56]. During Saturdays raid of the “Tourist in Thailand” offices, police arrested Mr. Paisaltanadetch and confiscated a further 200 bottles of the illegal, potentially toxic spirit, wrapped for sale and over Bt100,000 in cash.

Maj. Gen. Songmetta revealed that all bottles of the illegal alcohol seized by police had been made using the remains of various poisonous animals, with some containing the preserved animal in the bottle.

Drinking of this alcohol, branded as an herbal medicine with the capacity to increase sex drive, is to be considered extremely dangerous and possibly fatal. Anyone in possession of the illegal substance is urged to hand it in to police immediately with information pertaining to its sale.

Both Mr. Akulov and Mr. Paisaltanadetch have been remanded in police custody awaiting the commencement of further judicial proceedings.
