Title: Joke’s fortune
[This shows the formerly highest-profile policeman, Pol. Lt. Gen. Surachat Hakparn, known as Big Joke. He was unexpectedly transferred to the Royal Thai Police Operations Center without any reason given. This sort of transfer in the Thai system is the same as being fired.
Big Joke is known to have close ties with Deputy PM Prawit and his father was also an officer who worked with Thaksin’s ex-wife Pojaman’s father.
All of this has led to intense speculation over the reasons for his firing.]
