Nepotism, face and boredom

The Bangkok Post reports that the nephew of General Prayuth Chan-ocha and son of General Preecha Chan-ocha “has resigned from military service following criticism of nepotism over his appointment to an officer position…”. Readers might recall that (the briefly, but forever holding the title) Sub Lt Patipat Chan-ocha was appointed to the “3rd Army’s Civil […]

NACC bias

At PPT we have long observed that the National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) is a tool of the ruling junta. Now it seems the Bangkok Post has also seen this politicization of a supposed “independent agency.” Noting that several of its cases “have now reached the judicial stage” and that it is “actively digging into more […]

Military and police corruption

The vice president of the military junta’s puppet National Legislative Assembly, Peerasak Porjit, pre-empted a “review report” due Friday. He is said to have “[c]ontradict[ed] […]

Money for nothing II

In a post a little while ago, PPT had the story of puppet legislators missing in inaction at the National Legislative Assembly. We mentioned Prachatai’s report of an iLaw study of the apparently unconstitutionality of some members of the military junta’s puppet National Legislative Assembly. We used the word “apparently” because the details of “leaves” […]
