Criminal Court hands a very lenient sentence to pistol-wielding civil servant

Criminal Court hands a very lenient sentence to pistol-wielding civil servant

Piset Nakapan, assistant to the National Anti-Corruption Commission’s secretary-general, was on Tuesday given a jail sentence and a Bt31,000 fine for threatening a Bangkok cabbie in 2018.

On October 10, 2018, the 54-year-old jumped out of his black Honda to point a pistol at a taxi behind him, yelling: “Why are you following me? Use other routes!” 
The incident in the Government Complex in Bangkok’s Lak Si was recorded by the cab’s dashboard camera and later became viral on the internet. 
Piset faced charges of carrying a firearm in public without good reason, threatening others and violating the criminal code.
