Sobeda Pongsawang is the daughter of late actress Wandee Sritrang aka Satana Pongsawang and Hyong Baikan aka Somchai Pongsawang. She claims her aunt, Rassamee Kan, forced her to transfer the land title deed for her house and illegally insisted on becoming the executor of the more than Bt1-billion left by her late father.
She said Rassamee claimed that she had the right, as an executor, to force her to transfer the land title. Sobeda also said that a group of unidentified men had also tried to kidnap her daughter from the Sacred Heart Convent School in Chiang Mai. As a result, she had had to move out of her home for six months due to safety reasons.
“I submitted the petition to the Justice Ministry and it provided an officer to guard my family and sought a new school for my daughter. But I’m still frightened, and have decided to inform the DSI,” Sobeda said.
DSI chief Tarit Pengdith said he had assigned Pol Lt-Colonel Santana Kaewtubtim to seek more details from Sobeda, and if he finds her allegations are true, DSI will provide security for her.
