NACC to weigh if Mananya must submit asset declaration or is exempt

The National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) may soon ask Deputy Minister of Agriculture and Cooperatives Mananya Thaiset about why she has not yet submitted her declaration of assets and debts to the anti-graft body within the required time frame, says NACC secretary-general Worawit Sukboon.

 

Worawit on Monday (September 23) said officials later that day would gather information regarding the matter and consider issuing a letter to Mananya requiring her to provide her reason for failing to file.

 

The reason may be a case of a legal exception under Section 105 of the 1999 NACC law that would allow a person who used to hold the position of mayor to be waived from revealing assets, he noted.

 

However, as there is also a newer 2018 law that requires all to reveal their assets, officials would study related laws and present their findings to the NACC meeting on September 24. The Commission would then render a decision whether Mananya has to submit her asset declaration, he said.

 

If the NACC decided Mananya was required to submit the declaration, the NACC secretariat will issue a letter to notify her accordingly, he added.

I think all officials and police should have to show theyre worth. First step in fighting rampant corruption. 

All the local officials where i am certainly need a good checking!! They are loaded yet some make 8k per month. Sure they drive a <deleted> car to look poor but the whopping amounts of property, houses, holidays, etc.. dont add up!!

"consider issuing a letter to Mananya", heavy stuff, her reply will probably be "manana".

I read her name as Manyana, which might have been more appropriate!

That in its self would raise questions in my mind. If the former mayor does not have to declare where the money came from you might want to be worried about your town.

That's why Prayut and Prawit are also exempt. They used to be mayors of some barracks.

Leave the girl alone. If she’s with the Democratically honest elected team, she has to be clean as the PM and sidekick themselves.

Or, far too busy to respond at the moment, busy organising the gardener, house-keeper, and driver's back accounts - these things do take time.

It's just a Deputy Agriculture Minister thing, they seem to have immunity!

Unless they're trying to ban certain products... then the game changes!
