Authorities have launched a crackdown on the biggest multinational crystal methamphetamine trafficking network in Thailand.

The network has laundered their ill-gotten gains through 16 businesses in the South, including a hotel and entertainment venues, Narcotics Suppression Bureau (NSB) deputy chief Pol Maj General Supakij Srichannon said Thursday.

“We will investigate further to bring all the culprits to justice,” he said.

More than 10 agencies including the NSB, the Department of Special Investigation and the Office of the Narcotics Control Board (ONCB), have joined forces to search 54 locations in nine provinces before arresting four suspected drug traffickers, including two foreigners.

They are Chang Mi Hsu, a Taiwanese man, Tun Hun Serong, a Malaysian, and two Thai women Wiparat Karndee and Wanlaphan Petchpong. More than Bt70million of their assets have been seized.
