Thai police said on Thursday the chief suspect in a high-profile corruption scandal is the uncle of Princess Srirasmi, who is married to Thailand’s heir apparent, Crown Prince Vajiralongkorn. Pongpat Chayaphan, the ex-head of the Central Investigation Bureau and several others were charged with extortion, operating gambling dens, accepting bribes and exploiting the monarchy for personal gain. The corruption scandal has riveted the nation as it prepares to celebrate the birthday of King Bhumibol Adulyadej, who turns 87 on Friday.
