Yanakavee Lerdiwiboonmongkon says she bought the nine rai, including a restaurant, Lam Sai Seafood, on Koh Yao Noi, for 15 million baht. But the ''DSI men'' prevent her from occupying it.
Her remarkable story emerged today when she briefed members of the Phuket media.
According to Khun Yanakavee, a couple, Banyat Krasamod and Paweena Sampaorat, put the plot up for sale in August, 2011.
On October 17, 2011, a prospective buyer, Thiti Songtrakul, said he was going to buy the land and time-payment arrangements were lodged with the Krabi Land Titles office.
No payments were made so the contract lapsed, Khun Yanakavee said. In May 2012, she bought the nine rai, she said.
However, when she went to the land, five or six young men challenged her and told her the land belonged to Thiti Songtrakul. On August 21, she returned again and found two guns on the property.
She remains willing to talk, she says, but when she last made inquiries she was told the property belonged to a ''big boss of the DSI, nicknamed 'A'.'''
In desperation, she decided to tell her story to Phuket's media today.
