Arrest warrant issued for the head of Pattaya police after he went abroad

PATTAYA: --  Pattaya News reported that an arrest warrant has been issued by the local court for Apichai Kroppetch, the head of the Pattaya police force. The arrest warrant was issued after Apichai left Thailand on a trip and failed to turn up to a hearing.

 

But the case is not directly related to his job in the force.

 

The matter relates to a private disagreement between the chief and another high ranking officer called Phairat Phaiphonrat over the spreading of information on social media.

 

Apichai is the defendant in the case.

 

Yesterday a fellow officer at the Pattaya Station attended court on behalf of the chief but was told that as it was a private matter the chief had to appear in person. He could not send a representative.

 

It was explained that the chief was out of the country from March 14th to 17th. When he got back, his representative Chatchaphon Patanasiriporn said, he would contact the court to explain matters.

 

Court procedure meant that an arrest warrant was issued for the chief for his absence when required to be at a hearing.

 

Pattaya News did not give details of the case between the two policemen apart from saying that it referred to the sharing of information on social media.

They're treating this case more seriously than some murders. A cynical person might suspect that the other police officer is particularly well connected....

"... a fellow officer at the Pattaya Station attended court on behalf of the chief but was told that as it was a private matter the chief had to appear in person. "

<deleted>. If it was a "private matter" as claimed, it would not go to court. Jeez "... a private disagreement between the chief and another high ranking officer..."

Don't do in the dark what you don't want to come out in the light

The only question here is why he departed from his head? Also find it very peculiar that they only filed an arrest warrant for his head?

Story continues....is his head still in the country or did it leave with the rest of the body? Stay tuned for our next episode of this great mystery!

If he was last seen near Mapruchan lake his body parts could be residing in many different provinces.

The matter relates to a private disagreement

Issuing an arrest warrant which is used for a suspected CRIMINAL offense in this case is an abuse of power by both the RTP and the court. It is not a criminal offense to have a private disagreement. I suspect the real strategy is to ultimately to freeze and seize any of Apichai's Thai assets to make him regret his disagreement - assets that might find their way into private pockets.

It may be feasible to think that he feared for his life???

It reads that way. Yes. 

But, lets remember, based on historical situations and decades here, there is more to this. 

Starting with social media. <deleted>? 

I think this means one of them said something about the other on social media and the other did not like it and brought it to court. Why? Because it was either true or it was not but there is other games at stake between the two. They could be in disagreement about anything from promotions, graft, etc. and the issue played out this way until one decided to make a play to the court. 

 

That the guy was out of the country sounds to me like the accuser chose the timing to make the claim so the guy would look bad. It looks like he was trying to run. 

 

Alternatively, the chief has something to hide and wanted to be out of the country when it played out in court. And send his police colleague to represent (instead of or with a lawyer?) as the issue is politicized for whatever reason. (see above - graft, etc.) and the chief is rounding up his supporters in the force.

Every coup so far has placed restrictions on freedom of speech.. It's kind of the idea for having it in the first place,,to shut down the opposing political parties and their supporters

This is the first one at the peak of social media.

The first casualty of "war" is always the truth. :post-4641-1156693976:

And when a Government wages "war" on its opposition, restrictions/controls will be applied to media (just in case someone tells the truth)  :sad:

If he made travel plans prior to the date being set (and can prove it) surely the court has to respect that and reschedule. I know this is the case in many civilised countries. 

 

But if he made travel plans after the date was set....

Methinks your right. Its a pi**ing match. Once they look each other up in the hierarchy of things here the guy further down the pole will postulate to the other.
