Thai Crime: Thai PM Does Not Like The Amount Of Police Officers Are Getting Misconduct

Police officers found guilty of misconduct will face immediate and severe punishment, according to PM Prayut Chan-o-cha. 176 Royal Thai Police officers have been found guilty of misconduct since January.
Recently, the prime minister met with the Royal Thai Police Bureau to discuss the most recent cases of police misconduct. Since last January, 131 police officers have been disciplined, 38 have been removed from service, and 7 have been fired. 28 officers have been disciplined, 23 have been fired, and 5 have been removed from service this month.
Former police superintendent Joe Ferrari and six of his subordinates are accused of suffocating a suspect to death in an attempt to extort 2 million baht from him. The seven officers are being held in Bangkok’s Klong Prem Central Prison.
Maj-Gen. Yingyot Thepjamnong, spokesperson for the RTP, says the disciplinary action against officers shows the commission is taking misconduct seriously. Yingyot adds that officers who commit misconduct in criminal cases will be punished through the judicial process.
