A Thai woman accused of helping opium warlord Khun Sa retain $33 million in drug trafficking proceeds told a court yesterday that she was his daughter. Apawee Apitummakoob, 40, also told Eastern Court that the cash was for political contributions in 1990 and 1991 to the Shan Liberation Army in Burma. Adrian Bell, defending, opposed prosecutor Lynda Shine's application for a one-month adjournment to make further inquiries. Magistrate Alan Wright allowed 10 days. Mr Bell asked for unconditional bail for his client, but this was refused and she remains on bail of $200,000. Apitummakoob faces a charge of facilitating and assisting Khun Sa to retain and control $33 million in drug proceeds. No plea was entered. The Crown has applied for an order to freeze her assets.
