Nakhon Phanom provincial police on Thursday (Dec 28) forwarded perjury case against Jomsap Sanmuangkote and 10 other individuals to the public prosecutor with a strong recommendation that all of them should be prosecuted in court.
Pol Maj-Gen Suvicharn Yankittikul, commander of Nakhon Phanom provincial police, said the police inquiry officers handling the case met on Thursday to wrap up the case for submission to the prosecution’s office.
He said the police inquiry officers decided to file charges against Mrs Jomsap and 10 other suspects of assembly to commit offences, giving false statements to authorities and fabricating evidences in their failed attempt to revive the former schoolteacher’s fatal accident case which was already finalized.
Nine of the suspects have been given bail by the police with the exception of Mrs Jomsap and Suriya Nuancharoen who are being detained at Nakhon Phanom provincial prison.
Mrs Jomsap has been convicted to three years in prison for the car crash but she was released on royal amnesty in 2015 after serving one and a half year in prison.
Mrs Jomsap, then, petitioned the Ministry of Justice to help revive her case, claiming that she was the scapegoat in the car accident case.
However, the Supreme Court on Nov 17 dismissed Mrs Jomsap’s petition to retrial the case, reasoning that the witnesses appeared to be suspicious. The Supreme Court also took note of the existence of a gang who produced fake evidence to the court.
