Deputy police chief sent to new post at Government House


Pol Lt Col Wirachai Songmetta, deputy national police chief, was transferred on Friday (January 24) to an inactive post at the Government House for "generating a negative image of the Royal Thai Police” through his behaviour and actions.

Police spokesman Krissana Pattanacharoen said the order was signed by the Office of the Prime Minister on Thursday.
A commission has been established to investigate public complaints against the police force, he noted.
