The chief of Chanuworalak Buri district police in Kamphaeng Phet province has ordered transferred to an inactive post at the 6th provincial police bureau pending an investigation for his alleged failure to report to his superior an incident about the tearing of a list of eligible voters allegedly by a young girl.


The transfer of Pol Col Itthi Chamnanmor, superintendent of Chanuworalak Buri district police, was ordered by Pol Lt-Gen Chonnasit Wattanawarangkoon, commissioner of the 6th provincial police bureau.

Pol Col Krisna Patthanacharoen, deputy spokesman of the National Police Office , said that Pol Col Choonasit’s transfer stemmed from the latter’s failure to report about the incident involving two school girls who tore up a list of eligible voters pasted up in the information board in their school.

Both girls later told police that they didn’t know what the list was all about but found it colourful and decided to tear it off.

However, the deputy spokesmen said parents of the two girls were later summoned to see the police and to acknowledge the charges against their children.
