Six senior police officers from Bangkok’s Thung Song Hong duty were on Tuesday transferred to inactive posts for alleged dereliction of duty and abuse of power.

 

The order came after officers from the Central Investigation Bureau raided a gambling den in Chaengwattana Soi 14 in Thung Song Hong area, arresting 94 suspects, and confiscating several items of gambling equipment.

The Metropolitan Police Bureau will set up a panel of investigators to check to see if the six police officers were in any way involved with the den.

 

Meanwhile, the 94 suspects, half of whom are women, are being detained at Thung Song Hong Police Station and are scheduled to undergo tests on Tuesday afternoon.

Is that some kind of joke?

Set up a panel to check, they already know the answer, sack the sods, stop messing about.

Ohh silly me, i was dreaming again, transfer until it quietens down, then back in business boys, pathetic.

agree. they shoudl jail them, not put inactive posts...

so why not then?

 

i can only think bcos of fear of plea bargains, this is why police officers almost never jailed.

imagine they starting to talk...and no doubt they could sing a song.

I thought the inactive posts dept. would have been overflowing by now,

i think an inactive post  means  not been actively able to accept

backhanders and bribes.......for a while.

It's a deep rooted cultural trait! Uniforms are innocent of any wrong doing! You may have noticed!

Aren't all posts inactive?  All I ever see is the police sitting and gazing at their smartphone - no sign of activity!

The virus and the (social) media seem to be the biggest threat for such illegal activities. Somehow surprising how well both can uncover such problems. Are there not special forces for this?

Just have to love that they MAY be in trouble.  If it was happening under their noses and everyone knew about it then yes sack the crooked police officers.

MAY be in trouble.

They are still looking for the officer called "MAY".

 

They all get a 500baht fine to pay and will promoted.

The country needs a few more generals. 

Major general, super general, general general, 7/11 general.

"There are no gambling dens here"....

 

What does one expect, it was accepted there were no brothels found in Patts, they must have had a crew of a hundred scouring the place. If they couldn't find those, then I doubt they could find gambling dens, unless it were farangs playing Bridge.....

So what does it boil down too, the cost of blinkers perhaps.....:whistling:

If they legalised it the Police would never get any brown envelopes.

Yes. But there are still enough other options (laws) they can use to make money. In the end you would have to remove all these laws - or better remove all corrupt people. But even if you have people that should remove corrupt people how can you make sure that they don't get bribes themselves? I think they only way to solve the problem are very harsch punishments. But often such people only get moved to a different position. A new start (perhaps to create a new corruption network).

Plea bargain with who? They'd throw themselves off a building if they even found themselves thinking about talking?

Yes, if it is found that they were involved, really undeniable proof, then their boss might get cross with them. 

 

Scary.
