Amlo ups rice scheme asset grab

The Anti-Money Laundering Office (Amlo) is moving ahead with the seizure of more assets from people connected to the former administration's rice-pledging scandal after it confiscated 1.3 billion baht from a rice-trading tycoon.

Amlo said it has confiscated assets belonging to Apichart "Sia Piang' Chansakulporn, an executive of Siam Indica Co, which were obtained using money from the rice scheme, according to Chaiya Siriampankul, the office secretary-general.

He did not say who else would be subjected to the new Amlo drive. Apichart is an influential rice exporter close to the Pheu Thai Party.
