  1. Regarding JAS, isn’t it a 645MB security deposit forfeited + undetermined damages payable to the NBTC from the pending lawsuit? Pete is in deep shit either way, it is looking increasingly likely he plans to dump his shares and start over in some other business.

    I think THAI still hasn’t found its bottom before the turnaround magic starts the happen. Totally agree this one will take several years just to get started.

    • I’ve read the terms and conditions of the auction just out of interest as I don’t own JAS but I think their liability is limited to the auction costs and guarantee forfeiture. Also they would have entered into the contract with the JASMBB entity so the liability would be limited to the susidiary.

      I highly doubt the NBTC can reach to JAS or even Mono as punishment. Perhaps a civil suit against the directors (Pete and Co) for negligence?
