A Briton working as a prison visitor for the ‘Mercy Centre’ in Pattaya has been released from jail in Thailand and acquitted of child
sexual abuse cases in a staggering case which goes beyond simple mistaken identity.

Ian Charles Tracey,47, said he was charged in the place of
his namesake another Briton called Andrew John Tracy, who has since disappeared
from the court system in Thailand and now appears to be in Cambodia.
Amazingly Ian Tracey was jailed in his absence, and was living in
a room provided by fake British lawyer Brian Goudie, who, it is believed, reported his presence to the Women and Children’s Department of the Thai Police
in Banglamuang, near Pattaya.

In fact Tracey has been acquitted at his original trial when a boy he was accused of abusing stood up and said ‘He is not John’  and that he was under pressure from police to say to come to the court. He never had any sexual relations with Ian Tracy.

The prosecution had claimed they could not find the boy witness. He was produced by the defence after they did not do so. According to documents, admitted by the prosecution, the boy was threatened with ten years on drugs charges if he did not identify Tracey in a recorded video.

Tracey said had been arrested under the wrong name and claimed to police that not only was the name wrong but also the address.

Goudie, said Tracey, had promised that he would
sort out the mix up and sue the police for 20 million baht. But Goudie did not such thing.

Instead he called up the police and told them to pick Tracey up at his apartment above the ‘Jaggy Thistle’ pub. He visited his client the following week in jail and that’s the last Tracey saw of him.

Goudie began a four year sentence after the prosecutor appeal the decision and won in a case neither he nor his original Thai lawyer were informed about. The appeal result was read out in his absence.

“The most appalling part was when police came to my house. The arrest and search warrant was not in my name nor was it my address. They could not find the Tracy on the arrest warrant so they came back and arrested me and searched my house anyway. I told them I was totally innocence and they would have to make it up…and they did.”

Andrew John Tracy – disappeared
He was released on December 27 2013 after serving 15 months of the sentence.
He had known Goudie from the case of Jimmy ‘Doc’ Halliday, a
notorious Ulster drugs trafficker, who died of necrotising fasciitis in the
Bangkok Pattaya Hospital 19 months ago.  
Goudie, who was jailed in Australia for six years for theft of AUS$400,000 from his employers under the name Brian
Goldie, inherited Halliday’s estate by getting him to sign a power of attorney
on his death bed, and took over the ownership of the Jaggy Thistle pub in
Jomtien, under his name and that of his dormant companies Ramadin  and Bang Kao Bay Holding Company.
In the judgment by the Supreme Court the judges refer to errors
in the names and the address of the defendant.
Tracey believes he was set up because he knew that Goudie was
going to cheat a 75-year-old American mother out of a lot of money for defending
her son Gregory Miller on child sexual abuse charges.

“I told her to pay nothing without a full explanation. I
told her if she was going to pay money to the courts for bail she should do it
herself or she would never get it back.”

Goudie is currently under examination by the Pattaya Courts
where Mrs. Barbara Fanelli Miller, now 76, has brought a case against him for
cheating her out of US$300,000 on the promise on the release of her son. He has to surrender to bail on January 27th.
Mock up of Brian Goudie, aka Goldie, as a barrister
Miller was later sentenced to 39 years in jail a matter
which Goudie has been gloating about on his ‘legal website’ Case-Watch-Thailand.Blogspot.com.
Tracey said: “Goudie told me that it was going to cost the
mother a lot of money to defend her son and offered me 2 million baht. I
declined it”.
Speaking in Pattaya after being released last Friday he
added: “At the moment my life is ruined. I have had a career in advertising and
marketing. There is no way I can return to this business until I am completely
cleared and all references to this alleged offence removed.

“Goudie had me completely fooled. I thought he was a genuine lawyer. I saw him put down a million baht on Miller’s hospital bill. 

“He said: ‘I am going to do everything to save this guy’s life’. So I thought he was the real deal. 

“I never even knew that I had been convicted on appeal. It was Goudie who told me. I had asked him to sue the police on my behalf. He said I need not worry. He was personal friends with the Justice Minister. 

“He discovered the judgment when he went to the court to check. he suggested I move to the ‘Jaggie Thistle’ for my own safety or just as a precaution. Only he, Mrs Miller and my girlfriend knew where I was staying.”

Mr. Tracey is now considering his legal options. First of all he wants to know why Goudie, who was allegedly representing him, never put in any papers into court as promised. His lawyers have accepted his case for damages for wrongful arrest on a 30 per cent basis. He plans to sue police and take the matter to the National Anti Corruption Commission.
Goudie of course has never been a lawyer or an officer in the Royal Marines as he has claimed. He is a 100 per cent phoney, who with a knowledge of Thai, has managed to convince local courts that he is actually a somebody.
Goudie’s former girlfriend and assistant B K confirmed that Goudie had called police in Banglamuang to report Ian Tracy’s
presence at the Jaggy Thistle. She added that this occurred after Mrs. Barbara
Fanelli Miller had left the premises to return to the United States.

Goudie has to surrender to bail on  January 27th on a charge of cheating a 75-year-old American woman Barbara Fannelli Miller out of US$300,000 – a charge he made to get her son Gregory Miller, an international school teacher, out of the Nong Plalai jail where he was being held on child abuse charges.

Since she had turned against Goudie (above right) she has been the subject
of a vicious campaign on the internet
where personal and intimate pictures have been posted of her on a blogspot site and a Google+ site. Nattsuda Sripawat another former girlfriend has also had a website set up in her name praising ‘my good man Brian Goudie’. In actual fact her pictures now appear on 13 separate internet social websites and her picture is being used to front the sale of Bang Kao Bay Residences.

Ian Tracey giving the finger at his arrest outside the Jaggy Thistle in Pattaya. Fake lawyer Brian Goudie said he would be defending him and of course did nothing, while banking the money from 75-year-old Barbara Fannelli Miller, who may never see her son again. Later he said: 

“I had absolutely no idea that man was on charges of sexual abuse of minors. If I had known he would not be allowed near my place”.

Comment: The trial and conviction on appeal raises serious disquieting concerns about Thailand’s policing of alleged foreign child sexual abusers in Thailand. It appears ‘victims’ are giving evidence by rote, and many child victims and returning time and time again to the courts to give evidence against new offenders, when it is clear that these children should be in care.

Many foreign police forces have provided training courses for Royal Thai Police in the interdiction of paedophiles and child sexual abusers but this, according to Tracy’s evidence from his prison visiting, does not appeared to have, stopped the culture of payment.

There will be those who forcefully argue that these people deserve anything they get. They are however entitled to justice just as any other offender.

As for the activities of Brian Goudie, formerly Prisoner E0000274 Brian James Goldie as guest of the West Australia Department of Corrective Services, words fail me.


As part of Operation Naga a number of foreigners were arrested in December 2008 on child sexual abuse charges in the Pattaya area. This was about the time when Andrew John Tracy was very active. A Thai Police witnesses told the court that Thai police had been given Tracy’s name by British Police. British police still want to know where Andrew John Tracy from Wickford, Essex, is.


  1. I'm confused.

    The photo of the other Tracy…I thought he was the concerned citizen who apprehended a man with his hands down a boys pants.

    This guy may well have been stitched up very badly but he can hardly have thought Goldie was a pillar of the community if he was that close to him. Goldie it seems has no limits as to what he will do… something he brags about on his fb page.

    Nasty business all round.

    1. Yes you're confused Tim. The concerned citizen was Lee Booty who made a citizen's arrest and stayed to watch as Sattahip police released Andrew Tracy. Goudie has fooled a lot of people.

  2. A twist I did not see coming.

    I had twigged the surnames were the same but a case of mistaken identity based on a surname and fondness for Pattaya (by the BIB)?

    The ex-con Brian story is starting to really shape up, where will it take us next?

    1. No need to report any more for the time being – although they have all been copied and logged now. Goudie's on the defensive on this one. Says he has never seen any porno pictures of his ex girlfriend and seems to be blaming her for setting up Tracy. He also claims his computer was stolen – and suggests the content are in MY possession. I am awaiting his cries of protest when asked to drop his trousers and reveal his Scottish member to Forensic police. He'll be wondering how much more mileage there is in that story. Seems his whinging to Google about 'Google blogspots' of all things is coming home to roost.

    2. My apologies if my actions removed evidence that could be used against Bampot. I wouldn't want my wife, sister, etc. to be subjected to having intimate pictures posted on the internet by a POS like Goudie.

      Keep an eye on wee Brian, he may be heading to hospital for a circumcision. I can hear it now, "Your honor, you can plainly see that is not my penis in the picture!"

    3. He's managed to get the videos taken down off Y-Tube. I have a prediction. After 17/1/2014 Brian's life is going to become very miserable. He's going to have big troubles with women this year. Serious troubles are coming for him. I'm not going to red light myself about how I know or what I know. Just wait and see. His present cockiness will show 'pride comes before a fall'

    4. Indeed he is. He's commissioned a lot of actions he is not going to turn up for, while ignoring a lot, but possibly not all, of what is happening behind the scenes. I'll be surprised if he is still here next month – pleasantly I add.

    5. It won't matter if he runs, you cannot run from yourself. He's ultimately got to face himself and his own deeds. He may think he can escape or evade the effects of his previous actions. Wait and see Brian, you can't. There won't be any happy endings for you. Your time is coming, 100% certain.

      Do you really think you can commit these despicable and devious deeds with no consequences? You may think nobody is watching or keeping the score. They are, your going to find out the hard way in a few weeks. You won't even see it coming.

  3. Old pilot
    I reported him several times but he's not your typical Walt. He only try's to impress with his Royal Marine bilge to gain business…CV;'s and in comments to the impressionable and I have to say doesn't actually pose in uniform or stand at the bar bragging…well so I've been told….All the same its still shameful and deeply disrespectful to any body who has served. I also hear there are several groups of individuals…ex Royal Marines, Para's and a couple Royal Engineers who are keeping an eye on him and his movements.

  4. Andrew and others.
    The following has echo's of these scam merchants.
    "A man claiming to be one of the most decorated Navy SEALs in military history has been rooted out as a fraud after swindling investors for hundreds of thousands of dollars.

    A.J. Dicken went all the way while weaving fictitious connections to the elite army force, claiming that he was the one who fired the kill shot during the Osama bin Laden raid."
