A police application for arrest warrants for two policemen and one teacher in the Mae Hong Son forced prostitution ring scandal, was dismissed on Wednesday because a court said they were civil servants with known addresses and were not a flight risk.
They allegedly paid for sex services from the Mae Hong Son forced prostitution ring.
Denying the warrants, Mae Hong Son provincial court asked the police investigator to issue summonses for the three men instead, a source at the Royal Thai Police head office said.
The application for the arrest warrants was filed on Wednesday morning for a police corporal in Provincial Police Region 5, a police lieutenant colonel in the Border Patrol Police Bureau and a public school teacher.
Arrest warrant applications were filed for three other local policemen on April 29, relating to the same case. The court also dismissed the application and recommended the issuance of summonses on the same grounds.
