Chief District Attorney Wanttana Swatthong assures a local teacher, Graham Mitchell, his office will make sure there is not corruption or undue influence in the case against Lance Shaw whom investors in many countries say cheated them out of over US$2 million.


On October 19, newly appointed District Chief Prosecutor Mr. Wattana Swatthong met with one of the key witnesses and an alleged victim in the international case developing against Lance Frederick Shaw to assure people in Pattaya and everywhere justice will be served without corruption and this case is no exception regardless of any claims anyone may have made saying Mr. Shaw has protection from prosecution because of police connections.



“Foreigners need to know they can rely on the legal process, not money, when they are victims or accused of crime in Pattaya and I will see to make sure there is transparency and no corruption in the Shaw case or any others as I am sure Police Chief Sarayuth will do also,” said the Chief District Attorney.

Pattaya Police Chief Superintendent Sarayuth Sanguanpoki met with Mr. Graham Mitchell and Mr. Alan Burnside, two of the Pattaya people making charges against Mr. Shaw, two weeks ago and quickly ordered his officers to make sure the process was moving forward in three additional cases filed and pending against Mr. Shaw: Two cases filed by Mr. Burnside and Mr. Mitchell for the money they lost and one case for alleged death threats made by Mr. Shaw.

Last month Mr. Shaw was arrested on arrival from an international flight at the Bangkok airport on a warrant issued in the charge made by Mr. Phillip Shields.
