Well in this case the miscreant applied for leave and went back to his old stomping grounds to carry on as usual.

Yup, a rare instance of when we do hear what happens during/after inactive posting. Pretty much the only time that happens is when the person is caught the NEXT time doing some other kind of crime again. Most of the time, presumably, it's just back to quiet criminality in some other posting/location.

The case has forced the chief to admit there are some bad apples in his barrel but he claimed that "almost 100% of his force were upstanding honest cops".

If you find one bad apple in a Barrel there's probably plenty more...

Just how much jail time are these low-lifes being given? I have a feeling it depends how much money you have and how much "pull". The Thai police love to make an example out of some luckless falang caught with a few ecstacy pills or a half ounce of marijuana, by giving them what amounts to a life sentence, but a Mr Big caught with a pick-up load of yaba is out in 6 months.

 

If you get caught feeding the wrong fish then its jailtime and an extended stay in Thailand until trial.

 

So this cop gets a holiday from inactivity and gets caught extorting again, what's the next level of "punishment"?

 

Maybe they have a hierarchy of inactivities?

The chief said that most problems on the island stemmed from the drugs trade. Criminals Police were selling or offering drugs to tourists then robbing or extorting them, he said.

Just correcting the reporting.

Another Detriment for travel to The Land of Smiles. Soon stories like these will become more and more in the forethought of people looking for an island holiday. With Cambodia and Myanmar getting their act together attractive alternatives will be presenting themselves with increasing frequency. Will the Thai authorities wait until numbers drop like a rock before attempting real change?

What do you think?

Jiap knows how to run the Police office, also make them run, and run away!

 

He might be expecting a jail soon, so 10 days holiday in between, wow!

 

I suspect he as big connection. Expect another Kho-Tao ?
