Former Nakhon Si Thammarat police chief caught for duping officers out of money

Former Nakhon Si Thammarat police chief caught for duping officers out of money

FRIDAY, August 20, 2021

The National Anti-Corruption Commission on Thursday found the former chief of Nakhon Si Thammarat’s Thung Song Police Station guilty of embezzling government funds.

Pol Colonel Somphong Thipaphakul had apparently talked 200 police officers under his supervision to hand him the 15,000-baht remedial cash handout they had been given in 2020. He said he was following the National Police chief’s orders.

Somphong was found guilty of violating Article 157 of the Criminal Code and removed from his current post at the Provincial Police Region 8 on Thursday.
