Officers unite in charge to halt airport chaos

National police chief Chakthip Chaijinda has asked immigration officers to help high-ranking police officers prevent a recurrence of the chaos at Don Mueang airport last week, a source says.

An Immigration Bureau source said Pol Gen Chakthip had instructed immigration officers to return to their desks within two weeks.

In a report to Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha, the police chief claims the shortage of personnel to process immigration at the airports is partly because some are borrowed to work for phu yai (high-ranking officers) at other police offices, the source said.
