Court blocks Kowit move

The Central Administrative Court yesterday ordered an injunction to "protect" former national police chief Kowit Wattana from an order to transfer him from the Royal Thai Police to a civilian post.

The judges said their injunction voided Prime Minister Surayud Chulanont's order to shift Kowit, dated April 22 - until the Central Administrative Court reached a final ruling on the matter.

Surayud's order appointed incumbent Seripisut Temiyavej as new national police chief

The court said Surayud had 30 days to contest their ruling.

The judges said Surayud issued PM's Office Order 122/BE2550 before obtaining Cabinet approval to endorse it. That meant it violated Article 11(5) of the Organisation of State Administration Act of 1991.

Article 11(5) requires the Cabinet to endorse moves to transfer an official holding a position equivalent to a departmental director-general. Kowit's post, as the national police chief, fell into that category. - The Nation
