The Australian Ambassador to Thailand Mr James Wise recently hosted a ceremony at his residence in Bangkok to recognise the provision of the Case Management Investigation System (CMIS) licences and five computers from the Australian Customs and Border Protection to the Thai Customs Department, represented by Mr Paisal Chuenjit, Deputy Director General and Mr Vichak Apiraknanthachai, Director of Investigation and Suppression Bureau.
Australia has seen from past experience that access to a case management system like CMIS can enhance an agency’s information and intelligence reporting, as well as providing state of the art analytical and investigative support to operations.
The CMIS is currently used by other Thai law enforcement agencies, including the Transnational Crime Coordination Centre (TCCC) at the Royal Thai Police (RTP) Headquarters, which is supported by the Australian Federal Police. Access will allow Thai Customs to collect and share information with partners, enhancing the capability of Thai agencies to manage investigations and access intelligence relating to transnational crime.
