Suthep challenges NACC to send his alleged graft case to Supreme Court
Action Coalition for Thailand (Ruam Palang Prachachart Thai) party co-founder Suthep Thuagsuban on Thursday urged the National Anti-Corruption Commission to have the corruption against him sent to the Supreme Court’s Criminal Division for Holders of Political Offices. The former leader of the People’s Democratic Reform Committee was accused of malfeasance while in office in connection with the construction of 163 apartment buildings for police and 396 police stations throughout the country. Mr Suthep said that the longer the case was delayed, the greater the damage rendered to his reputation and political popularity by the accusation. For the past seven years since the accusation against him emerged, he said he had been cooperative with the NACC all along, hoping that the case would soon reach the Supreme Court’s Criminal Division for Holders of Political Posts so the truth will be revealed to the public. He suggested the NACC order the probe panel to show its evidence to prove his wrongdoings to the public, saying that he himself would tomorrow start live streaming through Facebook his clarification about the case to the public....
