Police charged over bribes to ignore trafficked migrants

Two police from the Anti-Human Trafficking Division, accused of taking regular bribes from business owners and construction contractors using migrant workers, will be prosecuted by the Department of Special Investigation (DSI).

DSI Bureau of Foreign Affairs and Trans-national Crime’s special case officer Pol Capt Khemachart Prakaihongmanee said that yesterday investigators took three suspects – Pol Sen Sgt Maj Patipan “Darp White” Samapan, his supervisor Pol Lt Senee Sriboonreung, and “money collector” Saneh Sukkhanon – to the special case prosecutor for a lawsuit against the two police for allegedly collecting bribes and abuse of authority.

Khemachart said the bureau had received complaints from entrepreneurs about officials collecting bribes to avoid being arrested for using migrant workers. He said the “Darp White” group collected bribes related to migrant workers hired in the North, Bangkok and Pattaya.

Evidence of bribe-taking had been found in Tak and Kamphaeng Phet, while monthly bribes were said to be taken people in the entertainment business in Pattaya and construction contractors.

Saneh is in detention while the two police, who turned themselves in, were temporarily released

Former navy officer among drug gang suspects

Police seized nearly 300,000 amphetamine pills in two major hauls last week, while arresting four suspects, one of who was a former navy officer.

On September 24, police arrested relatives Weerasak and Ekkachai Wunjaroen in a sting at a superstore in Nakhon Pathom’s Sam Phran district, following tip-offs by the US Drug Enforcement Agency.

Police said Weerasak served as a navy officer deployed with a Mekong patrol unit, and later turned to dealing drugs with his unidentified Burmese girlfriend, before asking Ekkachai to help them.

Prajuab Huayhongthong and Thanat Kanlaya were arrested, and 135,800 tablets worth about Bt40 million seized along with a pickup. Weerasak said later he only transported the tablets and contacted couriers or clients via the phone.

Police said Weerasak’s group constantly changed their phone numbers, with his contacts using pre-paid mobile sim cards, to make tracing difficult.

On September 18, Taling Chan police seized 160,000 tablets, worth around Bt32 million on the street, at the south-bound bus terminal from a bag left by a passenger who fled when bus conductors asked him to declare his cargo.

The man, aged between 35 and 40 years, was travelling to Nakhon Si Thammarat. Police have secured an arrest warrant for him after producing a sketch based on footage from security cameras.
