Kamnan Poh, dubbed the "god father of Chon Buri," was arrested yesterday after seeking treatment at a Bangkok hospital.
He was committed to the Bangkok Remand Prison to serve a total sentence of 30 years and four months on two convictions - one for murder and another for corruption.
The reports said Somchai's health deteriorated and he was rushed to the Corrections Department's hospital.
Sorasith Chongcharoen, the warden of the Bangkok Remand Prison, said Somchai receives the same treatment as other inmates.
An inmate who becomes sick is usually sent to the depatment's hospital, which is not far from the prison. If necessary and as recommended by doctors, he or she can be transferred to the Police General Hospital, under an agreement with the Corrections Department, Mr Sorasith said.
