The RTP Spokesman, Pol. Lt. Gen. Piya Uthayo, said on Thursday that the RTP Commissioner-General, Pol. Gen. Chakthip Chaijinda, has approved the abolition of restrictions that require crime victims to report only at police stations where the incidents occurred. However, there is no information of when the change will actually come to effect.
Pol. Lt. Gen. Piya said many laws still need to be amended, and the changed will definitely benefit the public.
Proponents of the reform argue that the restriction prevents crime victims from seeking timely help and investigation.
