Royal Thai Police commissioner Pol Gen Somyot Phumpanmuang vowed to clean the Royal Thai Police of all corruption and make it a new government agency with morality and good governance where the people can rely on.
The press conference was held at 10.30 am to clarify the arrest of 10 police officers and civilians on various charges ranging from bribery to lese majeste. One of the officers is former Central Investigation Bureau (CIB) Pol Lt-Gen Gen Pongpat Chayaphan.
Besides, a Crime Suppression Division (CSD) officer Pol Lt-Col Akarawut Limrat who committed suicide after facing questioning on the same case was also clarified.
Pol Gen Somyot said all these officers were charged separately for the crimes they committed.
For the former CIB commissioner, he said he was found guilty in almost all areas of responsibilities he was in charge and that could raise money for him.
He said all these misdeeds have been known for quite sometime but nobody dare to act as well as the past bosses.
“Everybody in the past knows how powerful and influential the CIB commissioner was, but no national police chiefs in the past would take action,” he said.
But he said that as he is the new national police chief, these things would not be allowed to go free or happen again.
He said he would build a new police norm, new standard, new guidelines for the police and the organisation that will be clean, free of corruption, have good governance and morality that the people can rely on.
