The abrupt transfer was ordered by Mr Krisda Boonrach, interior permanent secretary, pending an ongoing investigation into an allegation that the governor had bought sex with young girls in the province.
However, the governor has denied the allegation as unfounded.
Mr Suebsak’s transfer out of Mae Hong Son was intended to clear up the doubt about the conduct of the governor.
The transfer order will remain effective until there is a change to the order.
Meanwhile, Pol Gen Srivara Rangseepromnakul, the deputy national police chief, told the media that the Mae Hong Son provincial court had approved warrants for the arrest of three non-commissioned police officers who are all attached to Kong Koi police station in Sob Moei district.
The three officers were charged with gang-rape and dismissed from the police service for gross disciplinary violation.
Pol Gen Srivara indicated that a police deputy superintendent, an inspector and a sergeant, who are facing investigation might be arrested.
He went on saying that police would ask for warrants from the court for the arrest of another eight people who are involved in prostitution.
