Surachate Hakparn is the “People’s Policeman”

The new immigration chief Maj-Gen Surachate Hakparn, and the Thai government’s poster boy for rounding up all the baddies, has been hailed as the ‘People’s Policeman’.

That’s according to the Immigration department’s own website.

“He’s the man people are turning to when they need help in times of trouble.”

Yesterday the Maj-Gen’s Immigration Bureau website featured a story about a group of Thais ripped-off by Forex fraudsters in Australia. They turned to a tired looking Surachate for help in their hour of need, so the writers of the post inform us.

Jar Jar and Thanakorn Limpanuwat hailed him as “Tamruat khong Prachachon” (the policeman of the people).

The latter even posted a thumbs up cartoon cop intimating that Surachete is doing a great job.

Surachate promised action in the Forex complaint in which 300 Thais, in Thailand and Australia, have been conned out of 300 million baht.

A complainant representing 20 of the victims said that Chatkaew Saengthong and others had promised returns on Facebook of between 6% and 44% in currency trading. Interest was forthcoming at first but when larger investments were made contact ended and the money disappeared (we could copy/paste that paragraph every day on The Thaiger).
