Three Bangkok city inspectors have been fired for extorting money from a street vendor below a BTS train station.

Bangkok deputy governor Sakoltee Phattiyakul said on Wednesday that a disciplinary inquiry found the three inspectors guilty. He decided they should be sacked instead of moved to another poison.

They also have a month in which to appeal the decision, Mr Sakoltee told the Bangkok Post.

The three were suspended on Oct 17, three days after a video clip showed them extorting money from a street vendor. The food vendor was on a footpath where selling is prohibited near the BTS Asoke station.
