Warder guilty of taking inmate's bribe
A warder at Chon Buri Central Prison has been found guilty of pocketing a bribe from an inmate jailed for murder.
Thawatchai Chaiwat, deputy director-general of the Corrections Department, said yesterday the warder was found guilty by an internal probe of taking the bribe from the inmate in exchange for securing an early prison release. The inmate was imprisoned in 2008 and was released on parole in April this year.
Mr Thawatchai said the warder has asked for his appeal deadline to be extended so that he can provide a statement in response.
The warder was handed a week to provide the statement.
