A high level metropolitan police officer who has been accused of helping Ex-Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra flee the country before the verdict of her trial back in August has failed to show up after being summoned by officers, a second summons will now be issued.
Pol Maj-General Pakkapong stated that he was unsure if the officer in question was still in the country or not.
A summons was issued by the Royal Thai Police against Pol Colonel Chairit Anurit after personnel from the National Council of Peace and Order’s legal department filed a complaint against the officer to press charges.
The complaint filed by the NCPO accuses the officer of malfeasance of duty for not arresting former Prime Minister Yingluck knowing that she was awaiting the verdict of a trial.
Maj-General Pakkapong Pongpetra who is currently in charge of the investigation said that a second summons would now be issued instead of an arrest warrant.
In addition to the complaint filed by the NCPO Chairit is also facing criminal charges for using a fake licence plate and has already been dismissed from duty.
