Probe sought into transfers of ฿39m from Ubon Ratchathani municipality’s accounts

Police in Ubon Ratchathani’s Mueang district have been asked to investigate how 39 million baht was transferred from its bank accounts to an online shopping platform.

 

A complaint was lodged yesterday (Tuesday) with the Mueang district police by Artit Khoonphon, the vice mayor, who claimed that, between November 1st and 14th, a total of 2,029 unauthorised transfers were made to the accounts of an online shopping platform, from two Krung Thai bank accounts, ranging from a few thousand baht to hundreds of thousands and totalling 39 million baht,.

 

Artit claimed that that municipality has never placed an order for goods from the online shopping platform and has sought help from the police to find out who is responsible.

 

He also said that the municipality will ask the state-run Krung Thai Bank to trace the movement of the money.
