The damaged car seen on Sunday.

 

BANGKOK — Police on Monday declined to say whether they have identified the man who was filmed torching a prominent activist’s car over the weekend.

 

Supporters of Ekachai Hongkanwan, who was assaulted by masked men just a week ago, blamed the latest attack on the military regime, but an officer in charge of a local police station would not comment on the case beyond saying the investigation is ongoing.

Hmm...

 

One has to suspect that the police do not want to know who done it.

“We cannot disclose any details at the moment,” Col. Phasakorn Ratnapanadda said by phone..."

 

One further suspects that the police actively do not want to know who done it.

 

One (even) further has to suspect that the police will never want to know who done it.

 

One finally has to suspect that the police have already stopped looking for whoever done it...

I'd assume the police have already been 'told' not to do anything.

Usually if there's a chance to get their name in lights, the police will either release a copy of the CCTV or a photo. The last thing they'll do is to answer questions by phone.

It's actually standard procedure to not talk about an ongoing investigation in most of the world

 

 

Here it seems to be central to the investigation...

But not in Thailand where a dozen police will parade a suspect in front of cameras as they seek to justify their existence.

Normally even If they know who a suspect is it would be better not to announce it until they have managed to arrest him

 

Publish his name and you give him time to arrange an alibi or stay out of the way etc

 

Although, a good old photo shoot with tight uniforms and plenty of pointing is hard to resist 😁

But this is Thailand, where the cops always open their mouth.

No Jag not to the INVESTIGATION but central to the police their fame and public appearance. 

 

They would do well to use this line always... not when it suits them like now.

Shall we compromise, and substitute the phrase " normal procedure " for "investigation"?

Compromise is good, yes lets call it normal procedure. 

 

A shame actually that they do it and now deviate from it. Just shows that there is so much bias. Just stupid only makes things worse.

"in most of the world."

 

Here is a little different, they fall over themselves to blab about cases, photos of the accused totally perverting the course of justice. Guilty until the right payments are made.

It's a different world, the meaning of justice quite different to the rest of the world.

That has never stopped Thailand in the past - how many times have we here on TV watched policemen, government officials, the PM, BJ or others, blabbing their way through on going cases and deciding who or what is to blame without any investigation whatsoever?

Compromise in this instance I suspect is 'do this for us and we'll let you off the crime you have been arrested for' !

'Mr One' is a very suspicious person...........me thinks he should keep is suspicions to himself.  The BIB don't take kindly to suspicious people making suspicious allegations of suspect activity.
