Prison wardens dismissed for rape, drugs and smuggling

FOURTEEN prison wardens found guilty of serious misconduct were sacked without benefits, while four others were dismissed from the civil service but kept their benefits, and 193 were hit with lighter disciplinary punishments, Corrections Department chief Pol Colonel Narat Sawetanan said yesterday.
 

Following the department’s first civil service sub-commission meeting this year, Narat said the serious misconduct of 18 wardens had been discussed followed by a decision to sack 14. 

 

One warden had collected bribes from inmates’ relatives in exchange for providing better living conditions behind bars, while another faced a complaint for allegedly collecting an illegal fee from a shoe-making business that hired inmates. 

 

Three other wardens were found to have allowed inmates to use cell phones in prison, two others smuggled a cell phone into a prison, and another was found to have links to four cell phones, SIM cards and chargers found in a prisoner’s cell.

 

Three more were absent from official duty for more 15 days, while another was sentenced to one year in prison for forging state documents.

 

More serious crimes included one warden guilty of having smuggled 1,993 tramadol pills into prison, and another that was found guilty of rape.

 

The sub-commission also dismissed a warden from the civil service over adultery and three others for “disgraceful behaviour”, ranging from sneaking cell phone batteries into prison, telling people who were not inmates that he could procure drugs including “yaba”, and being linked to banned items.

 

Of the 193 wardens subjected to disciplinary punishment, eight faced a permanent salary reduction, 36 faced salary cuts temporarily, eight were put on probation, 73 were assigned extra shifts, two were temporarily banned from certain areas and 14 received formal warnings. The final 52 received verbal warnings. 

 

Narat said the department tried to prevent corruption and the introduction of contraband at prisons but some wardens would “go astray”. 

 

He added that the department would punish wrongdoers to boost the public’s confidence in the department and its officials.

So what about the rapist then? Am pretty sure that is up there as 1 of the most hinous crimes going, and you could infer that the rapist was sacked, but on th contrary he could have only got a verbal warning. Dreadful reporting as per usual

Above as below...

 

Same in schools where kids are given passing scores without trying, admitted to better schools if they pay the bribes...

 

Exemplary society, and I am living here. When I go back home it will be easy to turn a blind eye seeing how I am exposed to this crap.

Why?  Is there no branch of Thai civil authorities that is not corrupt and self-serving?  Could it be disciplinary procedures are insufficient?

These are criminal offenses. Dismissal is fine, but why are they not charged and prosecuted?

Rape, exploitation of prisoners for labour and drug running are not going “astray”.

 

They are criminal offences worthy of lengthy gaol sentences.
