An incredible story has come out of Thailand reporting that some employees of Thai Airways may have used fake death certificates to receive funeral allowances. What is even more incredible is that many of the “dead” employees are actually still working for the company.
The Nation Thailand has reported that 20 members of the Savings Cooperative for Employees of Thai Airways International (THAI) have filed a complaint through their lawyers with the Crime Suppression Division to request an investigation into the allegations.
“The cooperative has found that the number of members filing for funeral allowance has increased suspiciously over several years.”
“We checked the evidence they submitted and found that the death certificates appeared to be fake, as the persons decalred dead are still working for the company.”Weerayut Thuankong, Savings Cooperative for Employees of Thai Airways International (THAI) representative via The Nation Thailand
The savings cooperative are reported to have looked at cases dating back to 2013 and have found 26 cases which have cost the company an estimated 14 million baht (approx £333,550 / US$469,978).
