Popular Post webfact 166767 Posted March 22 Popular Post Share Posted March 22 Thai Rath reported that three officers of Region 1 immigration were at Din Daeng police station in downtown Bangkok last night facing an initial grilling in the case of the abduction and extortion of a Chinese businessman and his Thai interpreter. ASEAN NOW reported on the case yesterday after the man - who has now left Thailand - was fleeced of 10 million baht. His interpreter went to the police in fear. Yesterday the Central Criminal Court for Corruption and Misconduct cases decided there was ample evidence to issue arrest warrants for four policemen. Met 1 chief Pol Maj-Gen Attaporn Wongsiripreeda said three of the men were taken to the Din Daeng police station last night. Reporters got nothing out of them as they were led into an interrogation room where they faced Pol Lt-Gen Surachate Hakpan, the RTP deputy commander known universally as Big Joke. One suspect remains at large but Surachate said that he is expected to be in custody very soon despite his whereabouts being unknown at present. The three facing the grilling were Major Sorawit, Lieutenant Suriya and Senior Sergeant Major Pheerasak. The wanted man is Major Jiraphat. The three already held are expected to be remanded in custody by the court today. They have denied involvement and wanted a lawyer. Surachate said that immigration police have been asked to look into the background of the men. He said that he was convinced that this would have not been their first shakedown of a victim. He promised a full investigation into the men's activities and the transfer of money in the case noting that another Thai was also involved. Thai Rath noted that their sources indicated there was clear evidence in the case against the four suspects via the money transfer. -- © Copyright ASEAN NOW 2023-03-22 - Cigna offers a range of visa-compliant plans that meet the minimum requirement of medical treatment, including COVID-19, up to THB 3m.
