The results of the ongoing investigation will determine whether they can rejoin the police force. There are also seven civilians being detained over the scandal.

The same source said an elderly man seen in a picture next to a girl with an owl tattoo on her breasts worked for a cement-delivery firm in Mae Hong Son and, contrary to initial speculation, he was not a senior government official.
