BUT FAKE BARRISTER IS RIDING HIGH IN THAILAND – WHILE HIS ‘EX’ IS LED TO THE SLAUGHTER

Fake British barrister Brian Goudie walked free from Pattaya Provincial Court today after lawyers for 76-year-old Barbara Fanelli Miller who claim Goudie cheated her out of 7.9 million baht (£149,000) withdrew their application to have his 400,000 (£7,850) baht bail revoked.

While he was still a free man anyway he had to hand in the land title deeds of the former ‘Blarney Stone’ pub in Pattaya – which he renamed ‘The Jaggie Thistle’ and operated without a drinks licence – to the court.

So he has had to say goodbye to something like 12 million’s baht worth of property he acquired under very suspect circumstances in the first place.

This however paves the way for Goudie, who was convicted and sentenced to six years jail in Australia for stealing several hundred thousand dollars from a mining company, to buy himself out of posing as a British barrister with an Honours Degree in Law, to cheat the elderly American woman out of her cash.

Goudie had already bought himself off similar charges of cheating British estate agent John Jepson, from Norfolk. He had taken Jepson’s Bangkok apartment in lieu of his legal fees.

‘Jaggie Thistle’

This is possible in Thailand where at any stage of a trial brought not by the police or public prosecutor, but the victim, the defendant can make a financial offer to the victim and if the victim accepts, the case will be withdrawn.

Otherwise the victim has to go through the long process of suing in the civil court. In this case the plaintiff is expected to take the advice of her Thai lawyer.

In fact a civil judgment had already been awarded in favour of Mrs. Miller from Madison, Wisconsin, but it appears the lawyers from Sukhothai Law International were unable to enforce it.

One person who of course will suffer in all this is one of the star witnesses for the prosecution. She is  Goudie’s ex-girlfriend, nicknamed Nang, whom he had installed as the managing director of Jimmy International, the company owned by former Ulster drugs runner Jimmy ‘Doc’ Halliday who died in the Bangkok-Pattaya Hospital of necrotising fasciitis (a flesh eating disease)

Jimmy Halliday

Goudie was his lawyer and convinced him on his death bed to sign a Power of Attorney so he could sell his View Talay apartment to pay the hospital bills.  When Halliday died Goudie used the POA to acquire the majority shareholding of Jimmy under his inactive company ‘Ramidin Holdings Company Ltd.

Anyway, having given evidence for the prosecution after lawyers put a lien on Jimmy International preventing anybody from removing her as Managing Director, Sukhothai-Inter-Law then made a deal which has now seen her removed as a director – and open to prosecution herself.

She is now being investigated for theft of materials from Jimmy International. As Md of the company she was entitled to remove articles – now as no longer Managing Director she has to return them or go to jail.

Still that’s life and it is the second time she has taken a fall for Goudie. The first time was when she was charged with operating the Jaggie Thistle as a bar without a drinks licence.  But actually it turns out that when the charge was brought Brian himself was MD of Jimmy International and he hurriedly switched names to her.  The prosecutor has discovered this – and it is under active investigation. It appears Goudie set up his lover.

Former girlfriend Christina Spence laughing about Goudie’s
‘war wound’ which shifted from his groin to his side. Goudie
had also falsely claimed to have been a Captain in the Royal
Marines.

That of course is not half as bad as what he did when they parted and he ran off with another girl  who has since ditched him, as has his recent ‘lawyer’ girlfriend.  These women always cotton on much too late just as did one ex-girlfriend Christina Spence who was interviewed in the tv documentary  ‘Brian Goldie – Swindler Scot’.

“I was obviously feeding that narcissistic requirement of his…but he started telling lies about inconsequential things,” she said adding that eventually he told her about an alleged fraud on the Royal Bank of Scotland. .

.“He was more or less letting me know how clever he really was. True to his personality he wants and needs people think he was clever, intelligent and capable of pulling off things other people cant foresee…..”


“With Brian any suggestion that he should own up to a lie he has said or face the consequences or anything that he had done – that would produce a response in him that was indignant. He would be incensed at people who would find him to have done the wrong thing and and rhat anyone would punish him for that. How dare people. How dare people drop on to me.”

People might agree with Deputy President of the Australian Administrative Appeals Tribunal who stated: ” I have concluded that Mr  Goldie is not of good character” – when rejecting his application to stay in Australia.

Brian Goudie confronted by the author for ‘Serial Swindlers’ on the left is Nang – later its alleged porno video and
stills which could only have come from his smart phone appeared on the net

The Technical Crime Suppression Division have passed on a file to Pattaya Police with a pornographic video and pictures of the Nang who testified that the ‘member’ in the picture belonged to Goudie.  Pattaya Police have been asked to expedite the prosecution.  Perhaps under the new system they will leap into action.

They did not however leap into action in a case involving two Britons and a German who claimed they were cheated by Goudie, who they say pocketed the cash awarded to them by a court – so civil and criminal cases have been lodged by their lawyers .  This case had also been referred to Pattaya Police by the CSD.  Nobody will be surprised if another sweetheart deal is made.

So there you have it. Goudie, then Goldie left the UK just before a warrant was issued against him for fraud on the Royal Bank of Scotland, was described in an Australian Administrative Tribunal as not a person of good character, changed his name from Goldie to Goudie and arrived in Thailand posing as a barrister and former officer of the Royal Marines to start a law company called Alba Laws, is now about to get off his second serious criminal charge of fraud and so far the whole of the Thai justice system still does not get it.  It does have its funny moments though.

(Comment:)Paying off criminal charges may seem strange to viewers in the west who take the view that once you catch a thief you punish him. But this is the status quo in Thailand. In fact coupled with the Computer Crime Act libel section it makes this country a fairly safe haven for crooks. This week I had a call from a man in Pattaya claiming that his lawyer had ‘stolen’ his house.  He called the lawyer a thief I presume and is now being sued for libel and computer crime act libel.  ‘Why is it me who is being arrested?’ he asked.  Assuming he’s telling the truth Like many who have gone before him – he may have to run – chased out of the country by a criminal.


Is there a moral here?
