Marine police commander Pol Maj Gen Pritthipong NuchanatIn a surprising twist worthy of a detective novel, Marine Police chief Pol Maj Gen Pritthipong Nuchanat has been reassigned to an inactive post amid unfolding mysteries and high-seas drama. This move clears the stage for a deep-dive investigation into the enigmatic vanishing act of three boats and their illicit cargo of smuggled oil just last month.

Insider whispers revealed on Monday that Pol Lt Gen Jirabhop Bhuridej, the astute commissioner of the Central Investigation Bureau, inked the transfer papers on Friday. This strategic maneuver not only shuffled Pol Maj Gen Pritthipong to the calmer waters of the CIB operation center but also positioned Pol Col Pornsak Laorujiralai, a sharp-minded deputy commander from the Crime Suppression Division, at the helm of the Marine Police.

The backdrop of this maritime mystery dates back to mid-June when three boats carrying smuggled oil made a Houdini-like escape from a Marine Police pier in the bustling Chon Buri province. Though these repurposed fishing vessels were eventually recovered, their valuable black gold had vanished more completely than a forlorn ship into the Bermuda Triangle.

The intrigue extends further, as four Marine Police officers previously found themselves shuffled in an earlier shake-up related to this perplexing case. It all began on March 19, when law enforcement staged a high-stakes raid, seizing five ships and detaining them at the Marine Police pier in Sattahip, Chon Buri. Among this floating bunch, three ships were laden with a staggering 330,000 liters of smuggled oil, while twenty-eight crew members added a dramatic human element to this high-seas saga.

As dramatic as a blockbuster, the plot thickened when, in the dead of night on June 11, the same three vessels spirited away, taking fifteen crew members along for the joyride. It wasn’t until June 17 that the maritime mystery veered towards resolution. The elusive vessels were recaptured near the maritime boundary with Malaysia, their tanks almost as empty as a pirate’s eulogy chest. Investigations revealed that the precious oil had been offloaded and sold while the ships lounged incognito in Cambodia.

As the Marine Police shore up efforts to untangle this web of deception and smuggling, all eyes are on the newly appointed Pol Col Pornsak Laorujiralai. With a reputation for tenacity, Pol Col Pornsak stands ready to steer the Marine Police ship through these turbulent waters, ensuring that this tale ends not with a whisper, but with a resounding crackdown on maritime crime.

Beneath this cloak-and-dagger narrative lies a stark reminder of the challenges faced by law enforcement on the high seas. The reassignment of Pol Maj Gen Pritthipong, embroiled officers, and the measured handling of the case by the Central Investigation Bureau underscore the intense scrutiny and determination to uphold the law, even amidst the complexities of maritime operations.

Stay tuned for more updates as this seafaring enigma continues to unfold, promising more twists, revelations, and, hopefully, justice in the end. For now, the Marine Police rally under new command, sailing ahead with renewed vigor to uncover the truth and dismantle the shadowy networks lurking beneath the waves.


  1. Jake S July 8, 2024

    This whole situation just screams corruption. How incompetent do you have to be to lose three ships full of smuggled oil?

    • Sara July 8, 2024

      It’s not about incompetence, Jake. This was clearly an inside job. There’s no way those boats just slipped away unnoticed.

      • Jake S July 8, 2024

        True, Sara. But then why just reassign Pol Maj Gen Pritthipong? He should be facing charges if he’s involved.

      • Tom Hanks July 8, 2024

        Reassigning him might be a way to ensure he doesn’t interfere with the investigation. It might not be so simple as outright arresting him.

    • MarineMan85 July 8, 2024

      I agree with Sara. The fact that the oil was sold off in Cambodia instead of being recovered shows that someone knew exactly what they were doing.

  2. Jane L July 8, 2024

    The real issue here is the systemic corruption in maritime law enforcement. This isn’t an isolated incident.

    • Alex D July 8, 2024

      No surprises there, Jane. Corruption in law enforcement is a global issue, not just in the maritime sector.

      • RQ99 July 8, 2024

        It’s worse in countries with weak oversight. More transparency and accountability are needed.

      • Jane L July 8, 2024

        Exactly, RQ99. It’s about creating mechanisms that prevent such things from happening rather than reacting after the fact.

  3. Tim July 8, 2024

    I find it hard to believe that new leadership will solve anything. It’ll be business as usual soon enough.

    • Samantha W July 8, 2024

      That’s a pessimistic view, Tim. Maybe Pol Col Pornsak can actually make a difference.

      • Tim July 8, 2024

        I’ve seen too many of these ‘cleanups’ turn into coverups. I’ll believe it when I see real change.

    • frequentreader July 8, 2024

      Leadership change is just a starting point. There needs to be comprehensive reform.

  4. candieboy July 8, 2024

    This feels like the plot of a crime thriller! I hope they make a documentary or movie out of it.

  5. Larry Davis July 8, 2024

    It’s entertaining to read about but let’s not forget the human element. The crew members involved are also facing legal repercussions.

    • Grace July 8, 2024

      Larry, you’re right. It’s easy to get lost in the drama, but real people’s lives are at stake here.

  6. Jules July 8, 2024

    Why does this keep happening? We catch the crooks, and then they slip away. Why aren’t better security measures in place?

    • Max July 8, 2024

      It’s probably because higher-ups are involved. How else do you explain such a massive lapse?

    • Jules July 8, 2024

      I guess you’re right, Max. Still, it’s frustrating to see this level of incompetence or corruption.

  7. Tony R July 8, 2024

    I wonder how many more undiscovered smuggling operations are out there. This might just be the tip of the iceberg.

    • Brett M July 8, 2024

      You’re probably right, Tony. Organized crime networks likely have multiple operations running simultaneously.

      • Tony R July 8, 2024

        Scary thought, Brett. Our resources might be too stretched to handle all of them effectively.

  8. Anna K July 8, 2024

    It’s going to take more than just shuffling people around to solve this. We need structural changes in the way maritime law enforcement operates.

  9. SarahM July 8, 2024

    What really bothers me is how long these boats were able to remain undetected. It shows how porous our maritime borders are.

    • Jimbo July 8, 2024

      True, but it’s not just about borders. Our surveillance and intelligence gathering need serious improvements.

      • SarahM July 8, 2024

        Good point, Jimbo. We have to be proactive, not just reactive.

  10. Diana L July 8, 2024

    I bet the new commander, Pol Col Pornsak, will bring a fresh perspective. He’s known for his tenacity.

    • Cynic21 July 8, 2024

      Let’s hope he doesn’t just become part of the problem. The system has a way of corrupting even the best.

    • Diana L July 8, 2024

      I hope you’re wrong, Cynic21. Sometimes new leadership can bring real change.

  11. Eduard July 8, 2024

    The fact that the oil was sold off so quickly implies a well-coordinated effort. This isn’t something that just happened overnight.

  12. Netizen July 8, 2024

    If the Marine Police can’t handle this, maybe it’s time to involve international partners. Smuggling is a global issue, after all.

    • Katherine July 8, 2024

      That’s a good point, Netizen. Collaborating with other countries might add pressure and bring more resources to the table.
