Yuyee framed for drugs after pissing off powerful person, husband says

One year ago this month, former model and wildlife activist Chatchaya “Yuyee” Ramos was sentenced to 15 years on a drug possession charge her Spanish TV celeb husband maintains was a set-up.

TV host Frank Ramos, 42, spoke about what led up to his wife’s conviction, the campaigns it has spawned calling for the case be reviewed and his family’s diminishing sense of hope she will come home.

According the the story by Bangkok Post’s Nanchanok Wongsamuth, their 11-year-old son is obsessed with his mother’s case and finding out what exactly happened with Yuyee at Don Mueang Airport on the day that led to her arrest.

Conflicting facts, changing official accounts and unseen evidence factor into the story of how Yuyee was accused of holding cocaine weighing in the milligrams, but the thrust of Ramos’ assertions begin with a baby leopard the activist pair rescued from a private home in 2012, six months before she was taken into custody.

Ramos says threats began after then and demands for money to compensate the animal trafficker put out by their intervention.The value of the wild animal was estimated at half a million baht. The “powerful figure” is not identified in the story.

“This is going to grow to the point that something will happen to me, or Yuyee in jail,” said Ramos. “The next thing that can happen is they shoot me in the head. And everything for what? For money, for a leopard, for pride?”
