Big fish impunity

28 06 2018

The Bangkok Post recently had an editorial condemning the Auditor-General. It criticizes the Office not for finding malfeasance in claiming allegedly false travel expenses of less than 100,000 baht, but for the fact that the Auditor-General “seem to target — based on what they have done so far — only the small fish?”

The editorial also points at the National Anti-Corruption Commission’s failure to come to any conclusion on the Deputy Dictators luxury watch and jewelry case.

General Prawit Wongsuwan seems to enjoy impunity simply because he’s a big fish.

It is now about seven months since the case first came to light and it is hardly a complicated allegation. Yet the NACC has dragged its feet.

It seems that the anti-corruption agencies are merely processing terminals for the junta. They do as they are told.
