Leicester City Owners Facing £323m Lawsuit For This Reason

Owners of the immediate past English champions, Leicester City, have been sued for a whopping £323m due to the money they owe the Thai government.

Earlier on Monday, a criminal court in Bangkok reportedly accepted the case against King Power International.

According to the popular news outlet known as Reuters, the said case is also being brought against executives of state-owned Airports of Thailand (AOT).

King Power International, owned by Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha and his family, have been accused of failing to pay the Thai government 14 billion baht (£323m) from the operation of a duty-free franchise it was awarded some 11 years (2006) as contained in the lawsuit initially filed in July.

At a court hearing held on Monday, the Central Criminal Court in the Thailand capital of Bangkok accepted the case and stated that it would now take testimonies from witnesses in February 2018.
