There are 4 others with arrest warrants connected to the case.
When: February 12th, 2021
Where: Bang Khen district, Bangkok
What: On February 12th, 2021, police in the Bang Khen district of Bangkok detained Mr. Harit Jaisuk in connect with an assault on a Tom on February 3rd. There are 4 others who now have arrest warrants in connection with the case as well that now have warrants out for their arrest.
Mr. Harit denies all charges, claiming that he wasn’t the one in the video assaulting the Tom. He said that the Tom and him knew each other before, because the Tom wanted to start an import business and bring products into Thailand from China, but didn’t have the capital. So he offered her 2 million baht.
Instead of investing the money, Mr. Harit claims, the Tom spent it on daily expenses. After the incident that’s caught on video, Mr. Harit drove a black BMW 5 series to the Tom’s condo to further harass her for money and 2,100 baht was seized from her at that time.
Investigators are looking for the 4 other men involved in the assault.

My take: We’ve covered several stories the past month where loan sharks go rough up the debtors that haven’t paid up current on their loan.
The people who take out the loan surely are aware of the consequences of this behavior. Dealing with these characters never ends well, especially if you’re not paid up or can’t pay back the loan, and especially if you’ve used a business loan for personal expenses.
It’s just another corner of the underground world of Thai crime that will never go away.
