Lumpini police are being investigated for alleged dereliction of duty following a crackdown by outside officers on the illegal sale of child pornography in their district.

The Metropolitan Police Division 5 on Tuesday night raided street stalls in the Sukhumvit area selling child pornographic material, arresting a Thai woman and two Burmese men.

Metropolitan police have now ordered an investigation to find out if the Lumpini police were turning a blind eye to child pornography after the problem was first raised in a report in the Oct 3 edition of the Sunday Bangkok Post.

“The local police are failing to perform their duty,” said Pol Maj Gen Anuchai Lekbamrung, Division5 commander.

“And despite a previous order [to suppress child pornography], they’ve simply failed to take action.”
