Big Jokes Files Lawsuit Against Big Tdoo Over Transfer

Former immigration chief Surachate “Big Joke” Hakparn today filed a lawsuit against Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha over his transfer out of the police force to a job in the civil service in April 2019.

The lawsuit citing the transfer was illegal was filed at the Administrative Court of Thailand this afternoon by Surachate’s legal team

Surachate claims there has been no investigation for 17 months into why he was removed from the police force and given a job in the civil service working out of the Prime Ministers office as an advisor.

Big Joke states he fulfilled his duties to “full capacity” as Immigration chief and the various other police departments he headed-up that nailed romance scammers, loan sharks, fraudsters and transnational criminal gangs.

He claims his transfer was illegal and the failure of the Prime Minister to conduct an investigation has hindered his career.

Surachate was the most high profile police officer Thailand has ever seen starting off when he was the top dog of the Tourist Police Bureau.

Day in, day out, week after week, he was in the news with foreign crooks in cuffs.

In October 2018, Surachate moved to the Immigration Bureau hot seat where he continued to be the golden boy of the Royal Thai Police.

That was until April last year when he was dramatically transferred from his post with no reason given for his sudden removal from the force.
