Thammanat’s never ending lies II

3 03 2020

Clipped from the Bangkok Post

It seems PPT missed one of the significant lies Deputy Minister Thammanat Prompao unloaded on parliament a few days ago.

An Australian report states that the convicted heroin smuggler declared to parliament that he wasn’t engaged in a heroin smuggling ring: “The thing the police and authorities in the state of NSW said was 3.2 kilograms of heroin, it was flour…”.

Thammanat would have Thais believe he was baker rather than a drug criminal.

The trouble is that documents exist in Australia. The report draws on those court documents to explain:

On July 1, 1993, Phillip James McKay was on duty in the Australian Government Analytical Laboratories when he was given four packages weighing a little over 3 kilos to analyse.
He ran the usual tests on the white powder within for colour and solubility, as well as performing chromatography and spectrometry analysis….

The contents, he determined, were impure heroin hydrochloride, and at 74 per cent purity it amounted to a touch over 2.3kg of heroin.

It was heroin, not flour and Thammanat is not a baker but a drug dealer and liar.

That’s why he spent “four years in a Sydney jail in the 1990s after pleading guilty to conspiring to import more than three kilograms of heroin.” He was deported after his sentence was completed.

There’s more from the court documents, including on Thammanat’s confession.

Despite all of this, Thammanat remains a government minister. No one believes anything he says, but he’s a minister!
