The son of Labour Minister Padermchai Sasomsap has been linked to a suspected luxury car tax-evasion scam. Licence plates registered in the son's name were retrieved from the charred wreckage of a white Lamborghini, one of six cars found on the back of a transporter lorry when it caught fire in Nakhon Ratchasima on Wednesday. 

However, Mr Padermchai said Monday the licence plate number Chor Lor 6217 was the old licence plate number for his son's car.

His son had stopped using that number and had switched to a new one years ago, but the car dealer involved had not updated the information about the new owner of the Chor Lor 6217 plate, the minister said.
