Gen Somyot met DSI interrogators at the division handling human trafficking cases in Bangkok.

The DSI summonsed him to provide information on his financial transactions involving Kampol Wirathepsuporn, the fugitive owner of the massage parlour.

Gen Somyot, currently president of the Football Association of Thailand, did not talk to news reporters before going in for questioning.

Lt Col Supat Thamthanarak, DSI director for human trafficking cases, said Gen Somyot would testify as a witness in a human trafficking case relating to Victoria’s Secret Massage parlour.

Questions would focus on financial transactions and the B300mn Gen Somyot borrowed from Kampol.

The retired police chief earlier admitted he had borrowed the money from Kampol, and said they had been friends for two decades.

Kampol and his wife remain at large. Authorities allege the massage parlour had many underage girls who were forced to provide sex services.

The parlour, in Huai Khwang district, Bangkok, was raided on Jan 12. Investigators later uncovered the financial transactions between Gen Somyot, when he was police chief, and Kampol.

Ummm...yeah, just a simple 300-million baht loan (a bit under 10 Million USD), from my good friends at the human trafficking/prostitution club. This guy epitomizes Thai corruption at the highest levels...much like his criminal crony that "borrowed" all the expensive watches.  If this guy isn't hung out to dry, then it will shout loud and clear what high-level Thai corruption is al...

Not much to comment. Just vomit about it
The smile of someone on that photo who 'borrowed' 300 million thb from a sex parlor, 'employing' also under aged girls is disgusting
That whole 'borrow story' is just thai corrupt nonsense
