Pol Gen Surachate Hakparn speaks to reporters

In a dynamic turn of events, a crucial Police Commission meeting is set to take place today to determine the fate of deputy police chief Pol Gen Surachate Hakparn, famously known as “Big Joke.” The meeting, which will convene around 2-3pm, will be presided over by Prime Minister Srettha Thavisin, who also chairs the Police Commission.

The primary agenda for the gathering is to reassess whether the Royal Thai Police’s previous order to dismiss Pol Gen Surachate was legally sound. The stakes are high, especially after Pol Gen Surachate threatened to file a malfeasance complaint against Mr. Srettha should the dismissal not be revoked.

Addressing the press, Mr. Srettha remarked, “We haven’t been idle for the past three to four months. We’re meticulously navigating the legal intricacies of this issue. While we’ve been actively working to resolve the matter, it’s essential to respect the legal procedures involved.”

Today’s meeting will focus on insights from the Disciplinary and Police Virtue Protection Committee, which is currently delving into the allegations against Pol Gen Surachate. Mr. Srettha elaborated, “I believe every individual involved, including deputy national police chief Pol Gen Kitrat Phanphet, national police chief Pol Gen Torsak Sukvimol, and Pol Gen Surachate, has their own set of challenges and maturity. Personal issues must be sorted out through proper legal channels.”

In a related development, Pol Gen Surachate has reportedly taken his battle to the Bangkok South Criminal Court, filing a defamation lawsuit against a police general who also sits on the Police Commission, as well as a legal expert appointed by the premier.

Pol Gen Surachate has called on the court to scrutinize the intra-police conflict, especially concerning the defamation case that implicated him in online gambling offenses. He clarified that the arrest warrant issued against him was for failing to respond to a summons, not because a crime was committed. Emphasizing the importance of due process, Pol Gen Surachate asserted, “As long as a court hasn’t delivered a final verdict, the accused is presumed innocent.”

Adding fuel to the fire, Pol Gen Surachate is gearing up to file another defamation lawsuit against another expert and has plans to bring a suit against a senior officer next week. Pol Maj Gen Charoonkiat Pankaew, the Central Investigation Bureau deputy commissioner, seemed unperturbed by the looming legal battle. He mentioned that his lawyer would handle the case, downplaying the seriousness by calling the threatened lawsuit a “little matter.”

As the saga unfolds, all eyes are on the Police Commission meeting. The outcome could set a precedent for internal police disputes and the handling of high-profile cases. Stay tuned as we bring you more updates on this riveting story.

    Pol Gen Surachate should have never been dismissed in the first place. This sounds like pure internal politics.

    • Johnny123 June 25, 2024

      You can’t be serious! The man was involved in some shady dealings. If the commission reinstates him, it’s a slap in the face to justice.

      • Nina D. June 25, 2024

        Everyone is entitled to a fair process, Johnny. If there’s no concrete evidence, how can we just assume guilt?

      • Lisa-JusticeWarrior June 25, 2024

        Fair point Nina, but remember that accountability is key in maintaining public trust in the police force.

    • Lawrence K. June 25, 2024

      And let’s not forget the defamation suits. Seems like Surachate is resorting to legal tricks to save his skin.

  2. TinaLawExpert June 25, 2024

    If Gen Surachate wins his case and is reinstated, this would expose a lot of systemic issues within the police force.

    • BlueSkyRider June 25, 2024

      Either way, it’s going to cause a lot of friction within the department. Who’s to say this won’t just lead to more chaos?

      • TinaLawExpert June 25, 2024

        True, but sunlight is the best disinfectant. Maybe this is what the system needs to clean up its act.

      • JusticeForAll June 25, 2024

        I agree, transparency will only strengthen the institution in the long run.

  3. KevinJ June 25, 2024

    This is just another example of the rich and powerful using their influence to avoid consequences.

    • Emily S. June 25, 2024

      Or it could be a case of a power struggle gone wrong within the police force. Either way, it’s a mess.

    • Anna June 25, 2024

      I’m more interested in how this will impact public perception. Will people trust the police after this?

  4. Leo June 25, 2024

    Honestly, I think this whole situation is overblown. The public has seen worse scandals and the police force survived.

    • Sarah K. June 25, 2024

      The problem is that each new scandal just adds to the cynicism. We can’t keep having these issues without long-term damage.

      • Leo June 25, 2024

        Maybe, but people have short memories. There will be another scandal soon enough.

  5. Benjammin June 25, 2024

    PM Srettha is in a tough spot. Whatever decision he makes will have big repercussions.

  6. LegalEagle June 25, 2024

    The Prime Minister’s direct involvement complicates this even further. He has to balance political maneuvering with legal accuracy.

  7. Tara P. June 25, 2024

    Surachate’s lawsuits seem more like an intimidation tactic than a genuine legal battle.

    • YoungHustle June 25, 2024

      That’s how the game is played at that level. It’s all about who can flex their muscles more.

    • Tara P. June 25, 2024

      Unfortunately, that game means the average citizen loses faith in the legal system.

  8. JohnDoe54 June 25, 2024

    Does anyone else think this meeting is just a formality and the decision is already made?

    • YesMan June 25, 2024

      Absolutely. These things usually are. All the legal talk is just for show.

      • ClareSpecs June 25, 2024

        Sadly, it feels that way. The outcome is probably decided behind closed doors.

  9. Mikel7 June 25, 2024

    I don’t really care about the politics. Just fix the system so the public can trust the police again.

  10. Samantha A. June 25, 2024

    This whole saga just reeks of corruption and the public deserves better!

    • Dan the Man June 25, 2024

      It’s not just about Surachate. The entire system needs an overhaul.

      • Samantha A. June 26, 2024

        True, but where do we even start? The rot seems too deep.

  11. Kayleigh32 June 25, 2024

    If this goes to court, I bet there’s going to be a lot of dirty laundry aired.

  12. Pauline V. June 25, 2024

    It’s incredible how much the public’s view of the police can shift based on incidents like this.

  13. FutureLawyer June 25, 2024

    As a law student, this case is fascinating. It’s a textbook example of political influence clashing with legal standards.

  14. RonM June 26, 2024

    You know it’s bad when internal police affairs make the front page. Just imagine what’s going on behind the scenes.

  15. Zach June 26, 2024

    Will be interesting to see if any officers come forward with new revelations during this fiasco.

    • CleverAce June 26, 2024

      If there’s dirt to be had, you know someone will spill it for their own gain.

      • Zach June 26, 2024

        And those revelations could turn this scandal into a full-blown crisis.

  16. BlackCoffee June 26, 2024

    From what I’ve read, Big Joke is no saint, but this level of drama seems excessive for a dismissal review.
