Andrew Drummond no longer allowed to work as an "Investigative Journalist" tabloid reporter in Thailand

Andrew Drummond has had his Press credentials deleted from the Public Rrelations database by the Director General of the Public Relations Department that issues Press Cards to foreign journalists and correspondents. Drummond's problems are becuase he is awaiting criminal prosecution in numerous trials in Samui and Pattaya Thailand. Andrew Michael Drummond, age 62, from Scotland living in Bangkok Thailand has been criminally charged for alleged crimes against at least six people in Thailand. DSI, CSD and Immigration are all investigating additional charges. Drummond is said to be trying to borrow money and may pose a flight risk since it is unlikely he will be granted bail to avoid jail in his new criminal trials.

This appears on the blog of Andrew Drummond with thenames of tabloids he falsely claims to represent.

For the second time Andrew Drummond has been criminally charged in Pattaya Court. The first time by a Thai and now by two expats. Drummond posted another 100,000 baht bail to avoid jail until the trial which is expected to take at least two years. So far, seven victims of Andrew Drummond's alleged criminal acts have filed charges. Evidence is expected to show that the unemployed, former News of the World journalist now living in Bangkok has been using a blog website in order to gather cash donations from people who think he actually is protecting them. His supporters will have to pay more bail bonds so Drummond can delay serving jail time until a dozen criminal court cases against him in Bangkok, Pattaya and Kho Samui go to trial. So far, seven victims of his criminal acts have filed charges.

The Bangkok Post settled the case and fired Drummond as a freelance journalist. Andrew Drummond was sued for a million baht by two Pattaya businessmen and Drummond was also found guilty on criminal charges for the Bangkok Post article.
