A group of 8 officers from the Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation are in trouble after being spotted drinking and socialising at a house party in Ngao Waterfall National Park in the southern Ranong province. They’ve all been arrested for defying the Emergency Decree.

Police told reporters yesterday the 8 were rounded up last Friday night after neighbours complained of a party and loud noises coming from the home of the chief of the national park, 34 year old Chalit Sinrotthanakorn.

Chalit was among the 8 at the party. The others were 34 year old Natthapat Yutthaworawit, Wachirapol Kambucha, aged 32, 34 year old Natthapol Klubsawas, Rungpana Taenkaew, aged 29, 34 year old Pornprapa Anukul, 34, 28 year old Jittima Kongkasawas and 31 year old Sirinapa Wawanchan. Police found them sitting and drinking together.

Two bottles of liquor and various other alcoholic drinks, bottles of soda water, an ice bucket and a barbecue oven were seized as evidence. Investigators learned Chalit invited his colleagues to hang out and drink at his house from 8pm Friday.
