In his time in Bangkok, Rak has had numerous allegations of criminal activity brought against him, including claims of homicide, torture with a bladed weapon, and human trafficking. A testimony to Rak's power and influence, an official police investigation by the Thai authorities found no evidence of such wrongdoing and Rak was cleared of all charges.
Meeting at an aquarium in Bangkok, Thailand, Chinese intelligence officer Colonel Ping tells Bond he had a team in Geneva following a lead on a man called Rak who operates out of Bangkok. Before Ping can reveal more, an assassin hired by Rak kills him. Bond tries to get background information on Rak from M while evading the Thai Police. Bond meets up with an old friend, known as Silk, who tells him where he can find Rak; when Bond leaves, Silk informs someone where Bond is going and also says to make sure Bond does not make it. Bond confronts Rak in his boathouse and tries to capture him after a hand-to-hand fight. However, he manages to drug 007 and takes him to Burma where he owns a prison camp.
He tortures Bond and intends to slaughter him, but he fails when Bond escapes. Shortly after escaping, Bond engages in multiple fights with Rak. The conflict enters its climax when Bond fights Rak on a catwalk in a dam, eventually knocking him off. Rak tries to call for mercy, but Bond already deduced who Rak’s employer is. Bond leaves Rak to fall to his death, only for Rak to land on top of his Osprey. Bond shoots Rak with his pistol, who, in his dying moments, accidentally shoots the helicopter with a grenade launcher. The Osprey explodes along with Rak, killing him.
