Sek, whose real name is Seksan Sookpimai, headed back to Phrommakhiri district in Nakhon Sri Thammarat in a police van yesterday morning (Jan 2). He is to face another round of interrogation before police formally press charges of illegal possession of a handgun and firing gunshots in public places.

“Don’t worry. I am well taken care of by police,” he told reporters before leaving Kannayao Police Station with six southern police officers.

Sek will be the most high-profile figure handled by the small station in Phrommakhiri. But an officer in the district assured Sek will not receive VIP treatment. The musician already faces the less serious charge of resisting arrest by police, after authorities raided his house in Kannayao on Sunday (Dec 31) with a warrant approved by the Nakhon Sri Thammarat Court a day earlier.

The charges followed an incident that took place early last Friday (Dec 29), when he fired 10 gunshots in front of the statue of King Taksin the Great at Wat Khao Khun Phanom in Phrommakhiri after a concert. The rock star said he fired the shots as a way to pay his respects to King Taksin.

Kannayao police chief Col Sing Singdej said that Sek could face another serious charge – drug use – if urine tests at Police General Hospital return positive. The lab test results are expected today (Jan 3). An initial test found drugs in his urine, but Sek claimed the results were due to sleeping pills he had taken.

Sek said he was preparing B150,000 in cash to post bail after Phrommakhiri police send him to the provincial court for detention.

Is there anything written in the Thai laws about normal treatment by law and VIP treatment?
A thai police officer assured the press that Sek will not receive VIP treatment!
Does that mean in the thai justice system is officially something like a VIP treatment existing?
So, what category thai persons receive a VIP treatment?
Quite interesting that this came out.  A VIP TREATMENT.

Sounds like a publicity stunt. Jealous of Artiwara “Toon” Kongmalai getting all the attention for his fund raising run from southern to northern Thailand.
