Porntip and the GT200 in Southern Thailand

This is a short five-minute video from October 2009 showing Dr. Porntip at work in Southern Thailand. The first minute shows Dr. Porntip’s team using the GT200 device and the aerial points to one suspect so they then search his home for evidence of explosives.

BP: Actually, what BP finds disturbing about Porntip’s role in defending the GT200 device is that back in 2005 she called for the use of scientific evidence as it would be able to protect innocent people from false accusations. By 2008, BP posted on instances of the authorities conducting raids and collecting forensic evidence. Now, if you watch the entire video you will see that she mostly uses standard forensic procedures and that is why her use of the GT200 device is so bizarre. How can she create trust with locals by her stubborn insistence of continuing to use the GT200 device despite its failed test? Simply, she can’t. She is undermining her own stated goals. It is mystifying.*

* Well, there is one possible explanantion. She is the head of the agency which purchased the GT200 devices. These same devices have been purchased by countries and agencies that have a history of procuring items corruptly
