Metropolitan Police Bureau chief Kamronwit Thoopkrachang has issued urgent orders to transfer four senior police officers, whose family members and relatives have close links to the Democrat Party, from sensitive posts to Royal Thai Police Headquarters. 

The first order covering the transfer of three officers was issued on Wednesday, a day before the Democrats kicked off their anti-amnesty mass rally at Samsen railway station. The transfer was effective immediately and will remain in effect until Nov 30 or until further notice. 

It was to “maintain orderly and effective work operations within the MPB and avoid causing damage to services to the public”, according to Pol Lt Gen Kamronwit’s order.
