Lawyer Chamong Chaimongkon went to the Criminal Court with her client, Xeping, 46, to file the lawsuits against former Immigration Police Bureau chief Pol Lt-General Surachet Hakparn and deputy chief of Lumpini Police Station, Pol Lt-Colonel Noppadon Pingpongpun.
The lawsuit claimed they had made libellous accusations against Xeping during a press conference on April 4 while explaining why they had sought an arrest warrant for Xeping, said the lawyer. Xeping was accused of making exaggerated claims in her beauty business. The lawyer said their remarks at the press conference had tarnished Xeping’s reputation.
Xeping was arrested on April 3 on charges of fraud in the running of her beauty clinic.
She has also sought legal action against Kanchai Kamnerdploi, a Channel 3 host, who moderated a group discussion on the controversy in April.
She has also sought a compensation of Bt50 million from Kanchai.
