Pol  Gen Somyos Pumpanmuang, the head of the Football Association of Thailand, said he does not know who or which group broke in and stole the association’s financial papers.

He also pointed out that he personally does not have a conflict with anyone, and even though he has taken action against wrongdoers after assuming this position, he never took any steps without evidence.

He added that he as yet does not know what documents had been stolen.

Meanwhile Pol Lt Gen Thirapong Wongratphithak, head of Metropolitan Police Division 4, said the thieves used paper to cover the area where CCTV cameras were located, and their intention was to look at financial documents, some of which they stole.
