Thai Police Allegedly Kidnap an American Businessman

Three police linked to US trader's kidnap get the sack

Bangkok Post


The Metropolitan Police Bureau has dismissed three of its officers for allegedly collaborating with American suspects in the kidnap for ransom of a 47-year-old American oil trader.

Adisorn Nonsi, commissioner of the Metropolitan Police Bureau, said the inquiry team found several suspects were involved in the abduction of Mark Hutchison on April 7.

Three of the suspects are metropolitan police officers. The bureau has taken disciplinary action against them by dismissing them from the police service as they have been charged with serious criminal offences, said Pol Lt-Gen Adisorn.


This is a weird story. How did all these cops know this American guy had millions of baht lying around?

In Columbia and Mexico, the kidnapping gangs are usually tied into drugs. Something not quite right about this story.
