The Anti-Money Laundering Office has frozen ownership of the block of land on which the notorious Tao Poon casino was located in Bangkok's Bang Sue district, Amlo secretary-general Sihanart Prayoonrat said on Wednesday. 

The 250 square wah of land, worth about 10.8 million baht, is in Soi Khao San in Bang Sue. A building on the land housed the illegal gambling den known as Tao Poon casino, believed owned by an influential figure.

Pol Col Sihanart told a press conference that although the title deeds for the land show that the owner is Samart Singchamnong, a food vendor, it is believed he is only a proxy.
