BANGKOK – Prime Minister Gen Prayut Chan-o-ocha today called on the former chief investigator of Rohingya trafficking racket who claimed to be threatened with life and sought asylum in Australia to return†to Thailand with promise to drastically tackle those who threatened him.

Prime Minister Gen Prayut Chan-o-ocha told the officer Pol Maj-Gen Paween Pongsirin to return to the Kingdom and expose the names of those people who threatened him.

He promised that these people would be drastically dealt with no matter who they are or how influential they be.

He asked the officer if he still loved his country for his remarks he made to the foreign media.

He said he isnít his enemy and would like him to return to tell the truth.

Earlier Police commissioner Pol Lt Gen Thesa Siriwatho dismissed all what former Pol Maj-Gen Paween Pongsirin told the foreign media saying it was groundless and that he never heard of such threat.

Former Pol Maj-Gen Paween caused an uproar in the police circle when he told the Guardian online news agency in Melbourne that he felt unsafe living in Thailand because he was under threats for his role as head of a panel investigating the trafficking of Rohingya illegal immigrants into the country early this year.

He reportedly said he planned†to apply for political asylum in Australia. – Thai PBS
