Transferred Pattaya police chief is back at Pattaya police station

Pattaya —

Transferred Pattaya Police chief Pol. Col. Kunlachart Kunlachai has been reinstated as Pattaya Police chief after being temporarily demoted to an inactive post, following the alleged forced prostitution of a Kyrgyzstani woman who filed a police report and later died from suicide.

Pol. Col. Kunlachart Kunlachai is set to return to the Pattaya Police station immediately after an order issued by Pol. Maj. Gen. Attasit Kitchahan, commander-in-chief of Chonburi province, went into effect yesterday, September 30th.

Kunlachart had been transferred to an inactive post from September 18th-30th after a tragic incident of a Kyrgyzstani woman who plunged to her death allegedly after being forced into prostitution by a Chinese gangster.

One Chinese female suspect has been arrested so far, while two remain at large as of press time.

Kunlachart had reportedly been under review during the suspension period and was ultimately found by his superiors to not be directly responsible for the alleged trafficking incident or the police response and returned to his duties as Pattaya Police Chief.
