Fifteen victims of a kidnapping gang, that allegedly includes police officers, gave their statements to Klongdan Police Station in Samut Prakarn province on Friday (May 8).

 

 

Atchariya Reungrattanaphong, lawyer and president of Crime Victim Assistance Association, said, “The victims reached out to the association after they had been kidnapped by a gang comprising six police officers and four civilians,” he said. “I have informed National Police Chief Pol General Jakthip Chaichinda about the incidents and urged him to have the accused officers suspended from duty until the investigation is complete.”

 

One of the victims, Nanthawat Op-orm, 36, said that he was stopped by a group of policemen while driving from Rayong to Bangphlee district in Samut Prakarn. “They searched my car but found nothing illegal, after which they brought me, my wife and our three children to a football stadium,” he said. “They tortured me and my wife, threatening to press a drug charge, and demanded that I gave them Bt100,000 in exchange for my family’s freedom.”

 

“Since I didn’t have the money, they locked the five of us in two rooms in a resort on Sukhumvit Road,” he added. “Two days later, they let us go after I managed to find Bt52,500 and gave it to them.”

 

Atchariya added that the gang has been active in Bangbo district of Samut Prakarn and Bangpakong district of Chachoengsao province, where they used the resort on Sukhumvit Road as their base.

A few years ago they also kidnapped a japanese businessman who went to another police station and got help there. After that i haven't heard anything about it..

Sure but what's even more shameful, actually derelict, is that the national police chief is silent, showing no respect to this family nor to the society which employs him and pays his salary from taxpayers funds.

There are some plod here who will stop at nothing, just to get their grubby hands on cash.

If there is found to be truth in these allegations, not only suspend the police involved... Sack them.

Also prosecute them to the full extent of the law.

Never happen col you know I know that. They will be sent to inactive post as usual The law really is a big joke here and the Thai people know it

Suspension ? Are they joking ?

"Good news soon": Murder of German who taught English has damaged the image of Thailand, says media." from yesterday

So what must have this have done to the image of Thailand?

Suspension maybe OK but should involve a rope and a tree!

And they like to pretend they are superior to the Philippines lol. 

I believe one of the main reasons we finally got our automatic Covid-19 extensions here, was because the Phils did it first. Tremendous loss of face for the supposedly superior country.
