eine ordentliche Polizei brauchte hat wenige Erfolgserlebnisse.
Auch und gerade in dieser "guten" Militärdiktatur die angetreten war
diese thailändische Polizei zu reformieren.
Da hilft es schon wenn man ab- und zu einmal solche Artikel
in Thai Medien lesen kann:
Zumindest haben die Medien erkannt was in dieser Polizei nicht stimmt und was dringendst geändert werden muss
Police 'reform' bamboozles
Bangkok Post editorial column
The latest police reform, proposed by the current regime's subcommittee, has created fuss and puzzlement rather than hope for positive change.
The draft recommends a few major changes -- a switch in the supervisory line, by moving the supervision of the Royal Thai Police (RTP) from the Prime Minister's Office to be under the Ministry of Justice; substantive pay rises for all police officers; and a rejig in the job description of the national police chief.
These proposed changes are not going to make the RTP a better crime-busting body. They fail to address the crux of the problems facing the RTP, where more than 220,000 personnel provide crime control and public order maintenance services to the Thai public.
Abuses of power, corruption, bribery and flaws in the police's law enforcement have repeatedly prompted calls for reform. Yet, none of the past governments had taken the matter seriously.
With the new constitution requiring that police reform must be made within a year, the current military regime needs to act more swiftly to change the way the police force operates and offer a better version of reform which will translate into better protection for Thai people.
While the main purpose of bringing the RTP under the jurisdiction of the Justice Ministry was to ensure improved integration and cooperation among the various branches of the judicial system, it will not improve transparency and efficiency in the police force itself.
Many Thais have lived under fear of falling prey to police abuse. Their flawed handling of many criminal cases has put many innocent people in jail. Claims of forced confessions and torture made by alleged criminals have not been properly scrutinised. This signals a need for a rejig in the criminal justice administration of the RTP.
The RTP has too much authority. It is in charge of the entire process of handling criminal cases from investigation and making arrests, to interrogation and filing charges. It has been allowed to do so without proper checks and balances. This has made police work highly vulnerable to abuses, interference and promotion incentives. A police officer, who can quickly wrap up a high-profile case and file charges against suspected wrongdoers can expect promotion as a reward.
wenn Thailand nicht weiterhin ein Unrechtsstaat ohne halbwegs funktionierende Polizei bleiben will
wo Willkür und Anarchie herrschen!
Allerdings ist diese Militärdiktatur offensichtlich nicht bereit die notwendigen Massnahmen zu ergreifen.
