The four officers were incriminated after a complaint was made via Facebook recently. A Facebook user claimed a Chinese friend had queued for six hours at Don Mueang airport to obtain a visa on arrival.

.

The user alleged that the long wait was because of the fact that they refused to pay 200 baht to access a special “fast track channel” at the airport.

.

The Facebook user said the friend has since returned to China.

 

Pol Maj Gen Surachate said initial investigation has confirmed the allegation, which led to the transfers of the four senior officers to inactive posts.
