Update: Thai Police Promise Transparent Probe into Teens Allegedly Murdering a Mentally Ill Woman in Sa Kaeo


At 11:00 AM, on January 20th, 2024, Pol. Gen. Torsak Sukvimol, the commissioner general of the Royal Thai Police, gave an update to Thai national media regarding Ms. Buaphan, a mentally ill person who allegedly was assaulted to death by a teenage group in Aranyaprathet, Sa Kaeo.

Relevant agencies were ordered to investigate the case transparently to hold involved individuals accountable for their crimes according to the Prevention and Suppression of Torture and Enforced Disappearance Act without exemption, said Pol. Gen. Torsak.

In the case of Aranyaprathet police allegedly arresting a scapegoat, Torsak vowed that Thai investigative police would conclude soon. Whether they are guilty or not, evidence from forensic science and social media and other relevant evidence were to be presented transparently, remarked Pol. Gen. Torsak.

Regarding petitions to amend laws so minors who committed harsh crimes would receive punishments equivalent to adults, Pol. Gen. Torsak had requested a legal and litigation team from the Royal Thai Police to study international regulations and comparative laws from Japan and Germany.

By the end of January, the legal and litigation team would present the regulations to the Royal Thai Police, the Thai Prime Minister, and Thai Minister of Justice for the final decision.
