Torsak: Seeking B5m in restitution

High-profile attorney Sittra Biabungkerd has filed a lawsuit against Temporarily Transferred National Police Chief for defamation because he claimed he was involved in taking money from improper businesses.

The Southern Bangkok Criminal Court received a constitutional issue from Pol Gen Torsak’s legal group, led by a former top prosecutor of the Supreme Court, on Friday. According to Mr. Siripong, Pol Gen Torsak also demands that Mr. Sittra pay problems in the sum of five million ringgit.

The second preliminary reading is set for 1:30 p.m. on June 10.

Since March 20, Pol Gen Torsak and deputy chief Pol Gen Surachate Hakparn have been suspended for their alleged links to BNKMaster online betting corruption.

On Tuesday, Mr. Sittra made claims that a policeman crew was collecting bribes and that its members allegedly repaid 100 million baht each month. Pol Gen Torsak is allegedly a member of the gang, along with at least three other officers soldiers.

Mr. Siripong claimed that Mr. Sittra had insulted the head of the national authorities and that his alleged information against Pol Gen Torsak was “nothing.”

Pol Gen Torsak has even appointed Atchariya Reuangrattanapong, president of the Support Crime Victims Club, as a spokeswoman for the event.

The federal police chief has nothing to cover and is ready to be investigated, according to Mr. Atchariya, who stated that Pol Gen Torsak had sent a message to Mr. Sittra to thank him for bringing the story to light.

However, Pol Gen Watcharapol Prasarnrajkit, deputy executive of the National Anti- Fraud Commission ( NACC), said that the payment has not yet received any documents or information related to Pol Gen Surachate’s money- trafficking charges.

He responded when questioned about the length of time NACC was wait until they had received all the information to complete the investigation.

“NACC may take the case with justice and transparency”, he said.
