Officers investigating the much publicised dispute over ownership of a 30 million baht lottery jackpot have said that their finding show that the real winner is a teacher from the Kanchanaburi province and that they are going to charge the retired police officer who claimed the winnings with embezzlement and accepting stolen goods.
Pol Lt-General Kittipong Ngaomuk, the leading investigator and commander of the 7th Region police force, said a conclusion as to the ownership of the lottery tickets was reached after interviewing the vendor who sold the tickets who adamantly insisted that he sold them to the teacher, Preecha Kraikruan.
Furthermore CCTV footage showed the retired police lieutenant Charoon Wimul pick up the tickets from the road some 20 meters from the vendors stall.
Officers said the Charoon was also unable to present the vendor from who he claimed to have brought the tickets from.
The news was released by Kittipong at a packed press conference yesterday putting an end to the much publicised dispute between the pair which has been ongoing since the draw on November 1 of last year.
Officers are now in the process of filing charges against the retired police officer.
