Nam and Noyes. No romantic connection. ‘We’re just friends’.

A children’s Father Christmas defeated the President of the Lions Club of Bangkok (Silom 310D) at the Appeal Court yesterday in a story which will warm the hearts of all people who believe in Santa Claus, elves and fairies.

The appeal court confirmed that Drew Walter Noyes did not have a case against Dutchman Andre Machielsen, the former boss of Master Security in Pattaya – and a seasonal Santa.

Machielsen had lost a case of libel he had taken against Noyes, whom he said had accused him of being a drugs dealer on an internet website.

The two former friends had fallen out over alleged skullduggery at the Pattaya City Expats Club on Thailand’s Eastern Seaboard, which Noyes had founded but to which he could not find a quorum to vote him into office.

A witness from the Technical Crime Suppression identified the libel on a blogspot site as coming from Noyes’ email – but Noyes claimed that anybody in his office could use his email (and he had enemies there it seems) and it appears the judges initially accepted his story.

However when he attempted to counter sue claiming Machielsen had brought false evidence against him, looking at the evidence new judges refused the request.

And his appeal yesterday which was rejected by the Appeal Court confirmed that decision.

Andre Machielsen who has now sold his business and retired said he was delighted with the decision.

In a round about way it confirms he was right in the first place.

But Drew Noyes, former boss of the ‘Pattaya Times’ who is going through a trial for extortion insisted:

 “I did not lose the case. The court did not accept the appeal to allow me to charge Machielsen after a prior court decided he was wrong to bring a case against me.”


Meanwhile a case brought by Nam, the Secretary of the Lions Club of Bangkok Silom (310D), against journalist Andrew Drummond that she had been libeled in an article stating that she had a close relationship with Noyes and had worked in a place of entertainment was accepted by Pattaya Provincial Court on three points.

Three points were dismissed.

Once again the article had not been translated to the court and was based on a photograph of a serving girl.

Noyes and Nam ‘no romantic connection.We’re just friends’

Drummond, (owner of this site) who had already been acquitted of libel in a case in which he showed Drew Noyes and his ‘wife’ Wanrapa Boonsu at a police press conference on the extortion charge with the caption ‘Going to Jail’ said he did not expect any trouble defending the case.

He was surprised however that Noyes had exposed Nam to public scrutiny in the courts.

Nam and Drew Noyes are in turn being sued by Ms Kanokrat Nimsamooth Booth for allegations made on Naam’s Facebook page.

“So far I and my team have defeated 13 out of 14 cases brought against me by these people Drew Noyes, Brian Goudie and David Hanks who are operating in conjunction. Their aim is to obviously deprive me of all my cash.


“All of them run supposed companies in Thailand.

“All are on bail on serious criminal charges. Noyes for extortion, Goudie for fraud and Hanks for running a money lending racket.

“As a direct result of assisting me Kanokrat has also been the subject of vile and vicious attacks on the internet.

“There is clear abuse of the Thai legal system and Computer Crime Act and we will be holding a press conference on this issue.”

  1. Many older guys come to Pattaya from other Western countries after miserable failed marriages back home, often abandoning children and escaping child support. Not being able to get a real girlfriend they often find themselves in Pattaya's bars. Many go for what is known as a short time. Others prefer a long time.
    These older guys are often with a beauty young enough to be their grandaughter and about half the weight of the woman they left back home.
    Most guys are aware that the girl is only there for his money and the girl knows she is there to provide sexual services.Some of the guys think that the girl actually likes him and not his money and he starts to barfine the girl on a regular basis.
    Then the foolish foreigner starts believing he is in a romantic relationship with her. Starts promising all sorts of things. This type of customer the Thai hookers refer to as a Buffalo, or Quay in Thai. This leads to the long term customer have feelings that he wants to "rescue" her from the bar. Rescue her from having to provide sexual services for foreign men in Pattaya. But in reality he is rescuing her so she has to continue to have sex with the Buffalo, but not a whole heap of Buffaloes, like she previously was.
    The Buffalo has the time of his life and starts to think of the prostitute as his 'girlfriend.' Where it comes unstuck for the Buffalo is in normal society. The Buffalo does not want everybody to think that he is with a whore that he has to pay, so the Buffalo will make up all sorts of stories like he met her at 7 11 or she did work at the bar, but she was only the cashier or the cleaner. He will convince himself thet his one is different.
    But at the end of the day if he does not pay her she will leave to look for other gullible Buffaloes. No money, no honey. It is not a romantic relationship for the girl but purely a financial one. The buffalo will be surprised and heartboken and will return to the bar to hire another hooker.

  2. All this vexatious litigation is a disgraceful waste of the courts time. A one-eyed street dog can see what these people are trying to do.

    Firstly they are trying to isolate Andrew and secondly tie him up in court to drain whatever money he might have. It's pretty clear these career scumbags have no boundaries and no conscious when it comes to using people for their evil ends.

    They lie, steal, manipulate and hide behind women as they attempt to stay free. By dragging this on and on they are probably hoping people get sick of it all and stop donating to the cause. That is not going to happen.

    Even the casual reader can do a lot, notify the FBI about Noyes on their site. You can also contact the Australian Federal Police in Australia about Hanks as he probably has Australian residence. The same can be done with Goudie in the UK. Let them know as a concerned citizen you want them monitored.

    Legally they cannot do much but it will be recorded so if they flee or turn up on their radar they will know who they are dealing with. Hanks may still be required to pay tax under Australian law so use the Tax departments hotline to inform them about his company in Thailand etc.

    For Andrew's sake these people need to be stopped and put in jail where they belong.
