The Department of Special Investigation (DSI) said Thursday it has sufficient evidence to press charges against property tycoon Anant Asavabhokin for money laundering in connection with the Klongchan Credit Union Cooperative (KCUC) embezzlement case.
It also issued a public statement summonsing Mr Anant, who serves as chairman of Land & Houses Plc, a developer listed on the Stock Exchange of Thailand.
But in private messages sent to the Bangkok Post via the popular messaging app WhatsApp, Mr Anant said he was "puzzled" that the DSI issued the summons as a public announcement rather than contacting him directly.
