Chaowalit Thongduang, also known as “Sia Paeng Na Nod,” 37, made a daring escape on October 22. Chaowalit was serving a twenty-year prison sentence for attempted murder at the Nakhon Si Thammarat prison. He was taken to a hospital for dental treatment, where he subsequently collapsed due to severe leg pain. Amidst the confusion, Chaowalit managed to make a break, evading authorities for the past ten days.
In the first breakthrough after Chaowalit’s escape, police nabbed Sutiwas Khunnarong, 28, alias Non Thung Lan, in Ratchaburi province. Sutiwas is accused of being the getaway driver. Despite initially denying his involvement, after intense questioning, he confessed to aiding Chaowalit. Sutiwas recounted how he switched vehicles during the escape, ultimately dropping Chaowalit off in the Banthat mountain range in Phatthalung province.
Two Officials Suspected
The investigation took an unexpected turn when arrest warrants were approved for two unidentified public servants. These individuals are suspected of aiding Chaowalit in his escape. The Nakhon Si Thammarat provincial court approved the warrants. They are expected to turn themselves in to the police within a day or two.
Threats to a Prosecutor
In a twist of events, a prosecutor in Songkhla province reported receiving a life-threatening letter from a friend of Chaowalit. The anonymous letter demanded the return of money to Chaowalit, threatening the prosecutor and his family with harm. The prosecutor denied any personal connection to the fugitive Chaowalit.
Chaowalit’s Criminal History
Chaowalit was convicted last year by the Phatthalung Provincial Court for an armed assault on police during an attempted abduction in 2019. He began his sentence at Phatthalung Prison in January 2022 and was later transferred to Nakhon Si Thammarat Prison. Apart from attempted murder, numerous other criminal charges are also leveled against him. It remains to be seen what consequences await Chaowalit when he is eventually recaptured, and what punishments his accomplices will face for their roles in the escape.
