PATTAYA – December 10, 2012 [Pattaya Daily News]; at 7:30 p.m., Mrs. Somwang Rodapai, 49 year old, brought her son, Mr. Anupong Rermpong, 20 years old; and his brother Mr. Apinat Rermpong, 19 years old; to the police station to file a complaint with Pol. Maj. Gen.Thatisart, commander of Chonburi provincial police.

Mrs. Somwang complained that her older son had been beaten on his face with a gun by a police officer. Mr. Anupong told the commander that on December 8 at about 3 p.m., his mother had asked him and his younger brother to go to the market on soi Nern Plabwarn.

When the brothers passed the railway on their motorbike, they saw a checkpoint manned by 6 police volunteers and two men from the seized cars stable at Bueng Yai Horm.

The brothers did not much pay attention at the checkpoint and rode past the officers. Then two police volunteers rode quickly to cross their path and told them to stop the motorcycle. The police asked to see the hands of the young men, who became afraid.

Then the officers and the brothers got into an argument. So the police volunteer radioed for assistance, and two more officers arrived. One of them pointed his gun at Mr. Anupong’s head. Then the officer struck Mr. Anupong’s right eye brow repeatedly with his pistol, causing it to shed a lot of blood.

The repeated blows caused Mr. Anupong to fall to the ground. Then another officer came to kick him, and Mr. Aupong passed out. His younger brother then brought Mr. Anupong back to his mom, and the family later came to file a complaint with police.

After hearing their testimony, Pol. Maj. Gen. Katcha Thatusart said if the incident happened as described, then this was making trouble to people.

However, the commander will send the local police to investigate and bring in the police volunteer officers for questioning to find the truth. He will then give justice to both parties.
