The construction magnate heard the charges at the Natural Resources and Environmental Crime Division. They included illegal possession of African elephant ivory, firearms offences and bribery.

Premchai did not talk to reporters on arrival and he and his lawyer went immediately into the building. The meeting with police was continuing.

Environment police chief Maj Gen Panya Pinsuk said before the meeting that his division will charge Premchai on the firearms and ivory counts. The bribery accusation was being handled by the Counter Corruption Division.

Anti-corruption police chief Maj Gen Kamol Rianracha was also at the meeting with Premchai.

The meeting came one day after police recommended public prosecutors arraign Premchai and his three companions on nine charges related to poaching. They were arrested inside the park in Thong Pha Phum district in Kanchanaburi on Feb 4, with firearms and the butchered carcasses of protected species, including a black leopard.
