Capt Chaninthat Ratchinotrai, 38, deputy crime suppression chief at Bang Rak police station, has been moved to the operations centre at the Metropolitan Police Bureau’s (MPB) division 6.

The transfer, signed yesterday (July 13) by Maj Gen Songpol Wattanachai, chief of division 6, followed a complaint by Capt Charnchai Yensuk, deputy traffic police chief at Nimit Mai police station, that Capt Chaninthat had demanded B700,000 from him in return for helping him get promotion to station chief, Thai media reported on Tuesday (July 12).

Capt Charnchai, 39, arranged for his wife to deliver the money to Capt Chaninthat at a petrol station in Phaya Thai area on June 8.

When the police transfer list was announced, Capt Charnchai did not get the promotion he was promised.

The deputy traffic police chief had asked for his money back, but the accused officer kept putting him off. An angry Capt Charnchai and his wife then filed a complaint with Bang Sue police.

Capt Chaninthat went to Bang Sue police station to return the B700,000 to the couple on July 5. 

Lt Gen Sanit Mahathavorn, acting MPB chief, ordered an inquiry into the alleged kickback demand upon learning of it.

I hope certain readers here, who accused other readers not to talk/comment 'nicely' about RTP, read ( not fast reading please) this article very well and do realize that there is nothing new under the sun with the RTP.
Just common practice, but this time the 'things' went wrong and get publicity.

And as usual the RTP doesn't take this very serious, how trustworthy can you be in the eyes of the Nation you have to serve when the only punishment is 'transfer' or 'inactive duty holidays'? 

I was laughing about that 'enquiry to this affair upon learning of it'.
My goodness, all thai know about this RTP regular practice of buying promotions.
Can not even call it 'top of the ice mountain'.

I recently tried to file a report on a police officer's dereliction-if not outright malfeasance, the response; "You can't do that, er,....uh,...ahem,...it's....it's a privacy issue. Yeah, that's it...privacy."

At some point you really have to just laugh about it, take it seriously and suffer deep disappointments.

Oh, the insanity of it all.  Crooks in brown.  No wonder there is absolutely no respect for the RTP at any level.

Why don't they just lock up the two of them while awaiting trial? It's about time the RTP started treating corruption seriously.
