Members from Thai Airways’ Funeral Assistance Association seek financial aid after allegedly being scammed in funeral funds, at least 26 people faked death certificates

Bangkok –

Members from the Funeral Assistance Association For Thai Airways Employees gathered at the Crime Suppression Division (CSD) today, February 16th, to demand a thorough investigation and legal action after several fake death certificates were reportedly issued among mischievous Thai Airways employees in order to receive financial assistance from the Association.

Veerayuth Thuankong, 60, told reporters that about 20 association members who came to the Division today had noticed the unusually increasing number of death reports every year. Their investigation exposed that at least 26 members of the association issued a fake death certificate before submitting them for a financial claim of funeral assistance at the Association.

According to Veerayuth’s statement, the Association has recently lost more than 14 million baht. The concern had previously been presented to the board of directors of the association for help but nothing had been done so far.

He stated: “We urged the CSD to respond to our complaints and seek justice for us as the Association had lost a huge amount of money to the scammed members.”

Initially, the CSD investigator had acknowledged the issue that would be forwarded to the supervisor for further consideration and legal orders.
