Benz said Mr Siwawit made contact and offered to arrange bail. Benz said Mr Siwawit agreed to return the bail money if he was unsuccessful. However, Benz said, Mr Siwawit failed to return the bail money as agreed. Benz said he sued Mr Siwawit in the Civil Court, which upheld his claim that the lawyer was in breach of contract. Mr Siwawit, whom Benz says was later struck off by the Lawyer's Council in an unrelated case, sued Benz for accusing him of swindling the money.
