Probe under way after tourist seen in police uniform


The police are looking into a video of a Chinese tourist allegedly wearing a Thai police uniform that surfaced on Chinese social media on Dec 2, said Royal Thai Police spokesman Pol Lt-General Atchayon Kraithong.

The issue was raised by the owner of Facebook page “Luijeen” on Tuesday and included screenshots from the video, which has already been deleted.

The photos show a male Chinese tourist wearing a Thai police uniform shirt that he appeared to have borrowed from a man standing behind him near a car.

The man, who resembled a Thai police officer due to his short haircut, was also seen opening the car door for the tourist.

The following shots in the car showed the tourist holding a hat emblazoned with “Royal Thai Police”, as he spoke to the camera in Chinese, saying “we are on a mission today”.

Luijeen questioned the tourist’s actions in the video and speculated that the man opening the car door could be a Thai police officer whom the tourist hired to drive him around on his visit.

Atchayon responded to the post on Tuesday, saying that a police investigation is under way.

He added that if the man with short hair was found to be a real police officer, he would face disciplinary action.

The police spokesman added that national police chief Pol General Torsak Sukwimol was already aware of the issue and ordered the investigation to be completed as soon as possible. — The Nation/ANN
