Chonburi –

The alleged real owner of the ‘Mountain B’ entertainment venue, Somyot Panprasong, has turned himself in to the Plutaluang Police Station this afternoon, August 16th, following an arrest warrant issued by the Pattaya Provincial Court on Monday.

On Tuesday August 16th, ‘Sia B”s lawyer arrived at the police station to give more information to the officials. He also insisted that Somyot was not involved with the establishment as he did not know about any documents and restated that Sia B was the actual owner of the establishment. Sia B has previously taken full responsibility for the incident, however, many victims families and social media netizens have expressed concern that they believe that Sia B was a “fall guy” for other parties, owners, and silent investors.

However, Somyot was willing to surrender at the Pluta Luang police station but he was on the way from returning from other provinces, according to the lawyer’s statement.

As of this afternoon, Somyot reportedly arrived at Plutaluang Police Station following the arrest warrant that stated that he was charged for causing serious deaths and injuries to others due to negligence and operating the entertainment venue without permission.

Somyot has denied all charges and says he is not involved with the venue in any form.

Police involved in the investigation, however, are moving to attempt to block bail for Somyot, claiming he is a possible flight risk.
