The Thai court interpreter brought in to translate at the extortion trial in Pattaya of Drew Walter Noyes has ‘posted’ to Noyes’ Facebook page to say the judgment is wrong and that he was set up for the crime of trying to milk 7 million baht out of a beauty clinic.
Shayachon ‘Rose’ Yangpreeda, a registered interpreter at Pattaya Provincial Court, also believed to be an employee at Noyes’ One-Stop-Service-Center, committed the astonishing breach of impartiality in a post which appears on the Facebook page of Noyes, who falsely claims to be in Newport Beach, CA, and claims he worked for Thailand’s Ministry of Commerce.
She talks about psychopaths and cowards who are out to get Drew Noyes and says he is ‘on top of the world’ for what he has achieved in Pattaya.
And she adds: “I can be a witness to say to the world that – in my personal opinion –someone set you up to be accused for a criminal offence for sure.”
Her comments, despite saying they are personal, fly in the face of a judgment at Pattaya Criminal Court against Noyes who was sentenced to two years jail together with his common-law wife Wanrapa Boonsu.

But the wording of her contribution suggests that Drew Noyes has had a hand in the writing of it.
Noyes claims he has been attacked because he is so successful. He is often referred to by critics as a sociopath and accuses his enemies of all the very things he has been accused of himself.
While Rose’s English is what Thais would consider ‘fluent’ it would not pass muster in a British court.
Drew Noyes has repeatedly stated on the net that he is coming back to face the result of his appeal against conviction and sentence.
And the letter was posted just three days before he is due to surrender to bail, which was given to him to enable him to take three of his nine children in Thailand to the United States.
Drew Noyes’ colleague Brian Goudie, 48, from Falkirk, Scotland, has been jailed for three years for cheating a 78-year-old woman out of 7.8 million Thai baht, and many feel both Goudie and Noyes were lucky to have received such light sentences.
Foreigners have been jailed for twice as long for less serious crimes in Pattaya,
If Noyes wins his appeal against the extortion in which he made demands and threats on Michael Goulet, joint partner of the clinic, on pain of bad publicity in his now defunct Pattaya Times newspaper he faces several new libel cases being brought by Alastair Cooper.
Noyes was first exposed as a fraud by Scott Gold in the Wilmington Morning Star, in North Carolina, before ge arrived in Thailand claiming to have been invited by Royal Proclamation.
The newspaper quoted victims and lawyers for victims, accusing him of share fraud, property fraud and a case sexual harassment, in which he has alleged to have demanded oral sex from a junior employee, to give her more work.

He is currently claiming on Facebook that he being defamed by someone called Seb Mitchell whom he claims to be Cooper. Cooper emphatically denies Noyes’ claims.
COMMENT: No surprises here. But it does look very much like Noyes had a hand in the writing. This was the same interpreter my legal team had many rows with in a case being brought against me by Noyes and Hanks.
A poster had called Hanks a pimp on my site. It was true and not defamatory. He was the not only the owner but also the licensee of a brothel called Masquerades in Keysborough, just outside Melbourne. The court found that he was not a pimp and they relied on this woman’s interpretation. It was the only case I lost – and I put it down to something being wrong in the court.
Under the Thai legal system where no verbatim record is kept of court proceedings the power of interpreter is immense – and we can see from photos who this woman has been associating with. Their claims that they have power in the courts are exaggerated – but this shows there is at least something behind them.
Pattaya can be an area where one feels dirty by association. This is one of those times.
