Chon Buri Police and the Victims’ Crime Aid Society president, Achariya Ruangratanapong, lodged a formal complaint at the Attorney General’s Office calling for a joint investigation into a 140 million baht extortion gambling case. The plea was made today, alleging that several officers unfairly faced accusations in the scandal.

Achariya highlighted that several police officers, innocently implicated, have been summoned to hear the web gambling charges at the police club. He wants Pol. Lt. Gen. Surachate ‘Big Joke’ Hakparn, deputy chief of the Royal Thai Police, to ensure justice – especially for those officers not involved in any wrongdoing.

During the alleged web gambling extortion, police lieutenant Somboon Buddalert received orders to assist with the search on the day of the arrest. He was asked to read an arrest warrant to the suspects at a house in the Khan Na Yao district and transfer them to the Chon Buri police. He denies any awareness of the 140 million baht web gambling extortion and reportedly remained uninformed until he faced four instant charges brought to him at the police club. The issue of justice is contentious in the light of these accusations.

Additionally, the deputy spokesman of the Attorney General, Kosolwat Intuchanyong, disclosed the process after receiving the respective letter. Prior to this, five officers implicated in the web gambling case consisting of the territorial police force of Chon Buri province and the Technology Crime Suppression Division police had approached the office of the Attorney General demanding justice, reported KhaoSod.
