He was fined £500 at Edinburgh Sheriff Court after admitting the offence.
Frutin already had a flat in Pattaya, a notorious Thai sex resort, and moved permanently to Thailand four years ago after selling off Frutin Travel, where he coined the phrase "late bookings".He lived the high life in Pattaya, driving a red Rolls-Royce and building a luxury seven-f loor mansion with four home cinemas and a swimming pool - with a water slide from his bedroom window.Despite being given the Thai name Somsak and treated as a local celebrity - even hosting a TV travel show - the multi-millionaire businessman was dogged by child sex claims until his death.
He was reportedly on a British police paedophile watch list and Thai police also found child porn at his flat in the 1990s.However, Pattaya police took no action, leading to rumours Frutin bribed officers.A close friend said: "Martin died close to midnight on Monday after a long illness."His Scottish nephew and adopted Thai family - his adopted Thai son and staff - were at his side. It is understood that he will be cremated at the Jewish cemetery in Bangkok."
