A swindler & stock market investor, fierce critic of Thaksin and Yingluck, have been murdered. A neo-Yellow Shirts, a group of Thai called SALIM, said he will miss his investment advice. “He talks straight about the Thai stock market making recommendations and telling investors not to fear when the maker is hit hard,” said a SLIM to Thai Intel. “I will miss his advice greatly,” he said. The businessman is Akeyuth, who about 30 years ago, swindled billions from investors in a pyramid share scheme, and exiled out of Thailand to escape prosecution. When the case expired he returned to Thailand and start supporting anti Thaksin and Yingluck movement, making statements that he pumped about US$30 million into the effort. Despite Akeyuth past, the Elite Establishment became friends with him, as they shared an anti-Thaksin passion, a man they called corrupt. Many in Thailand, especially some press, are trying to link his murder to a plot by Thaksin. “Anything is possible,” the SALIM told Thai Intel. News24 reports: “Three men led Thai investigators on Wednesday to a mountain grave and what police believe is the body of a businessman and prominent government critic who disappeared a week ago. Bangkok police commissioner Lieutenant General Comronwit Toopgrajank said a driver who worked for the businessman, Akeyuth Anchanbutr, and two suspected accomplices led them to the body, which was buried on a mountain in Thailand’s southern province of Phatthalung. Comronwit said the driver confessed to killing Akeyuth to get his money. Comronwit said in a telephone interview that a relative of Akeyuth’s identified the body as his, but that police will conduct a DNA test to be certain before filing charges (Source).
