Metropolitan Police Bureau (MPB) deputy chief Jaruwat Waisaya said yesterday (July 14) an initial probe found the 16 officers at the station were involved in overseeing the nine cases against Ms Monta’s former employees.

Among the officers are seven investigators, three chief investigators, four superintendents and two deputy superintendents.

The seven investigators could be found guilty of failing to handle the cases in line with the Royal Thai Police’s (RTP) order No.419/2013 involving justice in criminal cases and investigation documents, Section 131 of the Criminal Code relating to crime investigation processes, and the National Police Act for negligence of duty.

The other nine officers may have failed to carry out their duties in accordance with RTP order No.419/2013 and the National Police Act.

However, the probe found no documents in the cases were forged.

The MPB deputy chief said a panel would be set up to investigate the 16 implicated officers, adding the details would be proposed to MPB acting chief Sanit Mahathavorn for approval.

Pol Maj Gen Jaruwat vowed if the panel found the officers violated laws or police regulations, legal and disciplinary action would be taken.

Pol Maj Gen Jaruwat said the officers would be transferred if the panel finds their positions and duties will affect the investigation. However, no transfer orders have been issued so far.

As for doubts about personal relationships between the officers and Ms Monta, he said no investigation has been launched into this issue.

Meanwhile, Crime Suppression Division (CSD) deputy chief Chakrit Sawasdee said its investigators will wrap up Ms Montha’s lese majeste case and forward it to prosecutors by next week. She is accused of using the royally bestowed title khunying without authorisation.

Last month, Ms Monta was accused by several of her former housekeepers of filing false theft complaints against them.

Police proceeded to widen the investigation, later charging Ms Monta with lodging false complaints, human trafficking, defamation and breaching Section 112 of the Criminal Code, also known as the lese majeste law.

Wow, 16 (!) officers of RTP accused of wrong doings, not performing their duties as they promised with their oath!
And this is just at 1 police station only.

1000 Dollar question: Why 16 officers did violate laws and police regulations?

Are they sacked? No. Why not?
