The Royal Thai Police Office will set up a committee to investigate 13 police officers, including four generals, after the National Anti-Corruption Commission has implicated them of involvement in corruption over the procurement of over 19,000 service motorcycles.

 

Pol Col Krisana Pattanacharoen, deputy spokesman of the RTPO, said Monday that the graft watchdog had sent its investigating report regarding the motorcycle procurement project to the national police chief, Pol Ge Chakthip Chaichinda.

 

In the report, the NACC unanimously voted to fault Pol Lt-Gen Prachin Waree, deputy inspector-general, Pol Maj-Gen Sompong Namcharoen and Pol Maj-Gen Itthipol Piriyapinyon for malfeasance in office and gross disciplinary violations in connection with the acquisition of 19,147 service motorcycles.

I rarely see cops on motorbikes and then it's a couple with gold topped helmets doubled up. Where are these bikes?

Probably sold them back to the police so can buy them again and again.

It would definitely keep the overhead on the scam down, if it was the same bike 19,000 times.

Oh I don't know - you would have to factor in the costs of finding somewhere to store the other 18999 bikes.

You could hardly keep them in the police vehicle pound could you?

I was under the impression that cops had to buy their own uniform, equipment and bike etc.

If that is the case and 19,000 motor bikes have been purchased, and then presumably sold, 19,000X 40,000(Average sale price) = 760,000,000 Baht!

Yes, I think they have some serious explaining to do.

Don't expect any prosecutions though, just redistribution of the wealth.

Police officers do not have to pay for official police vehicles.

 

There was no suggestion that these bikes had all been sold on to benefit the accused by 3/4bn baht.

It seems that the police are currently very busy with criminals in their own ranks.
Is there still enough time for the other public tasks?

malfeasance

 

Why don't they use a word that everyone knows or may be to embarrassed to use the word CORRUPTION as it would appear too often

Of the 13 officers implicated, Pol Col Krisana said some of them had already retired from the service.

 

So they can't get an inactive post :post-4641-1156694572:

 

I hope we can read the end of this story one day, i think nothing will happen to them.

Corruption in Police procurement is a recognised method of accruing great wealth, but works better if you marry the boss' daughter.
