Lawyer Files Complaint against National Police Chief

BANGKOK, Well-known laywer Sittha Biabungkerd on Monday filed a complaint against national police chief Pol. Gen. Torsak Sukvimol and his wife on charges of money laundering. Sittha, the secretary-general of the Foundation of People's Lawyer filed a report with the Taopoon police station against Pol. Gen. Torsak and his wife along with two alleged mule account owners on charges of money laundering and conspiracy to launder money and presented evidence to proceed with the case. The lawyer also revealed that he will continue to pursue the case to its conclusion and will introduce new evidence if available. He will also monitor the investigation to ensure it is conducted properly. If investigators neglect their duties, they will also face legal action for their failure. He said there is sufficient evidence to suggest that the national police chief is indeed involved in this case. Furthermore, Sittha questioned why Prime Minister Srettha Thavisin remains silent on this. If this were a leader of a foreign gov ernment, an investigative committee would be established to examine the high-ranking officials of that country. However, so far, there has been no action. At present, only the opposition has contacted and shown interest in the issue, as they recognize the genuine concerns of the public. This issue is considered significant as it is seen as a corruption scandal that has serious implications for the nation. The lawyer stated that he will continue to investigate the financial transactions of the national police chief and his relatives, especially donations made to various temples. It has been reported that donations have been made to another 2-3 temples, which are currently under investigation due to irregularities in transactions, similar to those exposed in a temple in Nonthaburi Province previously. Additionally, financial transactions providing monthly allowances to family members and police officers involved in arrests and crackdowns on wrongdoers have been discovered. Sittha concluded by admitting that he fears for his safety, as there is currently no one looking out for his security. Only opposition leaders have shown concern for his well-being during this time. He stated that he must take care of himself first. He ruled out requesting police protection because the more police are involved, the more fearful he becomes. Source: Thai News Agency
