THAILAND: Probe complete in Rohingya case

Police to hand it over to public prosecutors

POLICE WILL today submit the human trafficking investigation case involving Rohingya and other migrants to the public prosecutor at Songkhla’s Nathawee Provincial Court.

The case would then be forwarded to the Office of the Attorney-General tomorrow, Provincial Police Region 8 deputy chief Pol General Pawin Pongsirin said.

At the Hat Yai Police Station, Pawin said the 80-strong investigator team – whose many members would move on to new assignments in October – would submit 271,300 pages to the prosecutor following the five-month investigation.

In the criminal case of human trafficking, there were 155 suspects, two of whom are now deceased. So far, 91 suspects have been arrested and 62 others are still on the run.

Money-laundering allegedly involved 81 people – of whom 79 suspects have been served arrest warrants while two are dead. Police claim to have caught 40 suspects so far while 39 remain on the run. The investigation alleged that these 81 suspects carried out money-laundering crimes on 4,000 occasions.
