An arrest warrant has been issued for dis-bared lawyer Pisit Sammalert and his two accomplices over their alleged roles in conning a disabled 14-year-old girl and her mother out of 4 million baht compensation following an accident in 2005.
Warrants were issued by Taling Chan Court for the arrest of Pisit and his to female accomplaces identified as Pornpaveen Chukaew and Pattharawadee Sawasdee on Tuesday.
Pitis and Pornpaveen stand accused for using forged documentation to cheat Porntip Chantharat, 44, and her 14-year-old daughter Beam out of 4 million baht compensation awarded to them after an accident in 2005 that left beam in a wheelchair and sadly claimed the life of their husband and father.
Pattharawadee is accused of aiding and abetting.
Last week the Lawyers Council of Thailand removed Pisit’s name from the list of qualified practicing lawyers.
The family took to social media to try and seek justice after the lawyer promised to repay the money in 2015 after the family lodged an official complaint, he promised to repay them 3 million baht to drop the complaint, a promised he allegedly did not keep.
