Former Chief of Police of Thailand, Somyot Poompanmoung, claimed to have received a loan from a brothel owner who is now a fugitive over sex trade cases. The loan was called to reach the amount of US $ 9.5 million (Rp 126.9 billion).

There are at least 13 sex trafficking victims among the sex workers, some of whom are underage and known to have originated from Myanmar.

But to journalists, Somyot is reluctant to disclose his testimony during interrogation by the Special Investigation Department DSI) to the Thai Police. He was asked about his relationship with Kampol Wirathepsuporn, owner of 'Victoria Secret' who is now a fugitive. "I am here as a witness to give information, I can not talk about the details," said Somyot who now runs the Thai Football Association.

This place is one of the 'massage parlors' in Bangkok that offer sex services in dozens of booths private bathub equipped. Prostitution is technically a violation of the law in Thailand. But the prostitution industry is growing rapidly due to the culture of bribery and protection money from local authorities. The raid of a plus-plus massage parlor like this is only done when there is an alleged involvement of minors.

In a separate statement, the Director of the Bureau of Trafficking in DSI Supat Thamthanarug confirmed that no criminal charges were charged to Somyot in this case.

Last week , Somyot had called Kampol an old friend who helped him financially when needed. Somyot said the loans from Kampol were granted according to the legal corridor and reported to the Anti-Corruption Agency by 2015. It was clear that Somyot was still Chief of the National Police of Thailand

"Borrowing is borrowing, helping is helpful and afterwards the money returned, "said Somyot who tried to brush off allegations of lawlessness against him. He also declared himself not asking where the borrowed money came from.

The relationship between the high-ranking police officer and the brothel owner still provokes the Thai public's attention. Some time ago, Thai Deputy Prime Minister General Prawit Wongsuwan was pushed back because of the dozens of luxury watches he wore in recent years.
