Chonburi police questioned over 3 hours in regards to the extortion investigation

Pol Maj-Gen Kampol Leelaprapaporn, the provincial police commander of Chon Buri, was questioned for more than three hours today afternoon (Sunday) over claims that he and other officials had demanded 140 million baht from accused participants in an illegal online gambling group.

According to a knowledgeable police source, the commander has been accused of misusing his authority and violating Sections 157, 149, and 309 of the Criminal Code by receiving payments and engaging in extortion.

As he exited the interrogation, Pol Maj-Gen Kampol declined to speak to a large group of media. He was led away from the Police Club on the Vibhavadi Rangsit expressway in Bangkok by many plainclothes officers to a waiting automobile.

Kampol is one of up to 12 police officers who may have participated in the alleged extortion.  The Thai police have requested that two more allegedly implicated people be brought back to face charges after they fled to a neighboring nation.
