Military and police corruption

Think of all those corruption cases that have been processed by the military dictatorship and those that have simply disappeared into silence and nothingness. On the one hand there are all those cases against members of the former government. On the other there is empty space. Unusual wealth is simply not an issue. Rajabhakti Park? […]

Secret meetings at the junta’s processing terminal

Readers may recall that four months ago it was reported that an iLaw study pointed to the apparently unconstitutionality of some members of the military junta’s puppet National Legislative Assembly who were being paid large amounts of money for seldom appearing at the NLA. Immediately, the details of “leaves” taken were considered “secret.” At the […]

Fudged to save well-paid relatives and buddies

In an earlier post, we commented on the “clearing” of the seven puppet lawmakers who were “investigated” on allegations that they had failed to fulfill their required duties with the National Legislative Assembly.

We used the word “apparently” because the details of “leaves” […]

Money for nothing

Many readers will have already seen Prachatai’s report on the iLaw study of the apparently unconstitutionality of some members of the military junta’s puppet National Legislative Assembly. We say “apparently” because the details of “leaves” taken are considered “secret.” The point made by iLaw – Prachatai’s report doesn’t seem to get it quite right – […]

The corruption glacier II

In our previous post we stated that there were two stories today that emphasize how the National Anti-Corruption Commission is politicized, biased and just plain slow. Glacially slow. This post also illustrates some of those issues. Khaosod reports that an NACC “[i]nvestigation into accusations of cronyism within the ranks of the ruling junta was suspended […]
