michael goulet thonglor clinic

Following an earlier article exposing a Jomtien Beauty Clinic owner who has been indicted for fraud, this site has received correspondence regarding the allegations made against Thonglor Clinic, and Canadian Expat Michael Goulet who allegedly fraudulently posed as a cosmetic surgeon and medical doctor,

Goulet had a further case this week where Goulet gave evidence regarding an attempted extortion attempt by Drew Noyes and Wanrapa Boonsu, and copies of that evidence have now been made available to this 

After our original article was published a transcript of Goulet's evidence was provided to this site, and revealed:

1. Goulet, who in social circles was widely believed to be a cosmetic surgeon, is in fact a veterinary surgeon;

2. Goulet's 'surgical experience' is limited to small animals, such as dogs and cats;

3. Goulet admitted Thonglor Clinic has previously sold unlicenced treatments;

4. Thonglor Clinic in Bangkok was previously raided by Consumer Protection and FDA officials and a large amount of unlicenced products seized.

Following the evidence given by Goulet being translated, David Hanks - who had been treated by Goulet filed criminal charges - which were accepted by Pattaya Court last month.

Goulet is now on bail awaiting trial and has been told he must not leave Thailand pending trial.

Following complications post treatment, Hanks has now been told he faces the prospect of major corrective surgery, and Thonglor Clinic has refused to name the product used.

Hanks previously asked Thonglor Clinic to provide medical records, and the request was refused, but following the case being accepted, it is likely a subpoena will be issued.

In addition to the case above, Thonglor Clinic faces a joint prosecution with UK journalist Andrew Drummond after Drummond posted extracts from Hanks' medical records online - that case is now with the Royal Thai Police.

Drummond of course is a twice convicted criminal, after being convicted of defamation of Hanks in February 2014 in Pattaya Court and sentenced to four months jail (suspended for one year) , and most recently just last week was convicted by the Supreme Court of Thailand and jailed for two months.

Drummond faces five new criminal trials next year filed under Thailand's Computer Crimes Act, one of which has been filed by Hanks following Drummond allegedly misreporting Goulet's evidence in 'The Scottish Sun' - Drummond will pay bail in that case on November 13th 2014 at Koh Samui Provincial Criminal Court.
