Former Immigration Chief and high-profile crime-buster, Lt Gen Surachate Hakparn, has been laying low since being dramatically sidelined two weeks ago, being demoted to ‘office duties’ at the Police HQ in Bangkok.

Now he’s on holiday in America.

Thairath says that government spokeswoman Patcharaporn Inthiang revealed that the Lt Gen Surachate had put in a request for a holiday break (given his almost daily appearance on Thailand’s media for the past two years, he’s probably accrued a lot of holiday time!)

He had put in a request for a holiday in the US and is expected to be back at the end of this month.

He will have to report himself back at the PM’s office when he returns. We hope the immigration queues aren’t too long when he returns.
