Georg Swiss Witmer denies charges
Accuses Ullrich of lying
Georg Witmer, originally from Switzerland but now a permanent resident in Pattaya, was accused by Wolfgang Ulrich of cheating him out of 7,700,000 Baht. Witmer was also accused of bribing officers in order to help achieve Wolfgangs release from prison.
Georg Witmer talks with Pattaya Mail.
Witmer turned himself in to the Central Investigation Bureau in Bangkok on February 9th to testify to the facts regarding Ulrichs case. He was then arrested and was held in prison for 12 days before he was released on 400,000 Baht bail.
On the 2nd of March, Georg Witmer, now a popular figure in the Ullrich case and well-known around Pattaya as "Georg Swiss", gave an exclusive interview to Pattaya Mail.
"Wolfgang contacted me through Dieter sometime in the middle of October 1998, to help him to find the best lawyer to help him out of jail," Georg said. "I did as requested. I spent more than 2 months in Bangkok assisting Ullrich, as I was told that the real problem concerned the yacht he bought from Cambodia. But I then found out that Ullrich was blacklisted for many serious accusations, such as drug dealing, exporting women for prostitution, etc., so I wanted to back off. I have known for a long time that Ulrich is a very influential man in town, but I didnt realize the extent of this influence.
