Prayuth’s brother’s mathematically challenged assets declaration

As we know, Prayuth’s brother is a member of the NLA and is quite rich. The Bangkok Post:

Assistant army chief Lt Gen Preecha Chan-o-cha, who is the younger brother of Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha, has 79.8 million baht in net assets.

Reviewing his assets declaration, there are some issues. Page 5 has list of assets and liabilities for Preecha and his wife:

 

Source: NACC. Direct link is here, but if you go to the front page of the NLA asset disclosure list and scroll down to No. 19, you can find the link and you can see it is the latest (well it is as of Tuesday, October 7 at 16:00)

However, on Page 6, where he lists the bank accounts, they do not add up to 42,051,468 Baht disclosed on Page 5:

BP: This BP’s calculations this adds up to just under 90 million baht which differs from the headline figure. Perhaps, the NACC should ask him to correct it* as surely a good person such as Preecha would never have intended to confuse the public with a lower headline figure and hoping that no one would look at the details, right?

*He only counted two of his bank accounts – numbers 2 and 3.
