Six policemen, who allegedly extorted Taiwanese and Singaporean tourists at a checkpoint in Bangkok on July 4, have been detained.
Pol Maj Gen Atthaporn Wongsiripreeda and investigators brought six policemen to seek the approval for the 12-day detention from the Central Criminal Court for Corruption and Misconduct Cases.
They oppose bail for the suspects, citing concern that they might tamper with evidence and a flight risk due to the severity of punishment.
The suspects have been charged with demanding bribe and committing misconduct. (TNA)
