Deputy Prime Minister Prawit Wongsuwan said on Friday (Aug 11) a military officer attached to the Royal Thai Armed Force Headquarters (RTARF) accused of involving in the abduction of a Singaporean businessman for a ransom will not be protected and must face legal action according to the law.

 

Gen Prawit, who is also Defence Minister, was referring to Maj Gen Jaroon Ampha of the RTARF.

 

The alleged abduction occurred on July 14.  Shortly after noon on that day, nine men–four of them in camouflage military uniforms and others in civilian clothes–went in four cars to the office of Surachai Sae Yang, the owner of New Gen Airways and Kanta Group Thailand, in Soi Nuanchan 34.

 

Claiming to be plain-clothes officers of the 191 Patrol and Special Operation Division and Crime Suppression Division (CSD), they conducted a security search on the office without showing a warrant.  After the search, they showed the domicile registration and identification card of Mr Surachai and said they were fake.

 

The nine then took Mr Surachai to see their “leader” at another place.  There, one of them said to Mr Surachai in Chinese, saying that their boss wanted 20 million baht protection money from him.
