‘Mark Pitbull’ interrogated by police over Jomsap donations
Natchapol “Mark Pitbull” Supattana, a social network celebrity who raised funds to help former teacher Jomsap Saenmuangkhot in her failed attempt to petition for a retrial, went to see police on Thursday to insist he had pure intentions to raise funds and nothing to do with an alleged plot to deceive authorities.
Natchapol claimed that he had believed that Jomsap was innocent of a 2005 fatal hit-and-run crash and raised Bt1 million in donations, which he gave to Jomsap in two tranches of Bt100,000 and Bt900,000.

He added that he did not know what Jomsap, whom he had not previously been acquainted with and met only three times, spent the money on.
After meeting with Natchapol at the Royal Thai Police head office in Bangkok, national police deputy chief Pol General Weerachai Songmetta said case investigators would check transactions to see whether the donations that Natchapol had given to Jomsap had been spent on paying false witnesses or fabricating evidence to use in her petition for a retrial.
