At the risk of being mischievously accused by The Dictator and his Deputy Dictator of having “doctored” a photo – we haven’t – and causing panic – it won’t – we ask again about news of the Deputy Dictator’s case.
We at PPT know that asking is enough to cause him a loss of face and great anger, but the case looks so much like a cover-up that we must ask.
We have been scouring the news to find what the National Anti-Corruption Commission has decided on Gen Prawit Wongsuwan’s jewelry and luxury watch case.
Our search has come up with nothing.
It seems that the NACC is just hoping that the whole scam of millions of baht of “borrowed” watches just goes away with time. That’s an old strategy used to provide impunity to the corrupt high personages in Thailand. Well, those who are on the “right” side.
The NACC has been compromised and hopeless on its boss’s case from the beginning.
Will it ever make a decision on this case? Even a bad one? While it may hope that it will never have to, it should not be permitted to provide impunity for corrupt “good” people while using the law to harass and repress its opponents.
