Construction tycoon Premchai Karnasuta was sentenced to six months in prison, without suspension, by the Criminal Court this morning (Tuesday) after he was found guilty of possessing three hunting rifles and a home-made firearm without licenses.

The court agreed to cut the one-year jail term by half because he had confessed, but declined to suspend the imprisonment because there are still two criminal cases, carrying possible prison terms, pending against the defendant at the Thong Phaphum provincial court in Kanchanaburi province and at the Region 7 Criminal Court for Corruption Cases.
