Couple Arrested On Charges Of Bribing Thai Officials

The FBI has arrested Gerald and Pat Green on charges of violating the corrupt practices act by bribing officials in Thailand as part of their efforts to secure a deal to manage the Bangkok Film Festival. According to the complaint, the Greens paid $1.7 million in the form of kickbacks to an unnamed Thai official, who is believed to be Juthamas Siriwan, who served as the governor of the Tourism Authority of Thailand between 2003 and 2006, when the Greens operated the festival under their Film Festival Management company. Juthamas, who had been running for parliament in next week's elections, pulled out of the contest today (Wednesday) following word of the arrests, although she denied any involvement in the alleged bribery. The indictment charges that the bribe money was transferred to bank accounts in Singapore, the United Kingdom and the Isle of Jersey, several of which were held by the daughter of the TAT official.
