Police Major General Paween Pongsirin had been investigating the trafficking of Muslim Rohingya migrants after the discovery of mass graves and 26 corpses in southern Thailand in early May.

The bodies are believed to be those of Rohingya refugees and were victims of the traffickers.

Major General Paween claims his investigation was stopped by highly influential people within the government, the military and the police.
