public prosecutor at the court of Samut Prakan for the prosecution of corrupt government officials

Did you attempt to contact the public prosecutor directly?

And what was it you wanted to say?

That you said "Just saw the problem out of how the authorities and the police might be thinking of him at the moment."

 When we read you it seems you are saying that the authorities and the police all think badly about his case, but it goes in all directions some agree with him and others would prove him wrong!
And if this were not the case the director of the hospital would not have been transferred.

To become a director in another hospital. Do you get it now?

I think the reaction was to make it legal to overcharge foreigners in hospitals. In fairness since they did offer financial compensation what more does he want? Fruit basket?

 

Justice? Recompense?

Don't think that's possible in Thailand. The PP can only act once police hands over the case.

 

It's a major flaw in the Thai legal system and has been highlighted numerous times by various legal commentators.

In other words, the case dropped stone cold at the Hua Hin police station for the last 6 months while the have a clear order from the NACC to file charges at the public prosecutor at the court of Samut Prakan for the prosecution of corrupt government officials. 

Which is pretty well what happened with the police who were supposed to draw up an extradition order for the Red Bull hit and run kid.

The prosecutor helped me "off the record" as an intermediate between me and the ministry and the PACC. That lasted about a year but they where also not able to break through the wall. The prosecutor was releaved when the case was finally was  picked up by the NACC and got a resolution. The NACC can prosecute by themselves but the high commission made the bad decision to hand it over to the incompetent Hua Hin police.

 

I'd be surprised if the NACC prosecutes cases like this. I think it's quite telling that the NACC actually picked it up when PACC got nowhere. I gather it must have been a rather persistent effort to get to that.

 

Would the NACC follow up on their referred case if the local police stalls the case?

The PACC is for officials lower ranking than director (CEO). If the ranking of the official is director or higher the NACC has to do the case. At this moment all complaints are taken by the NACC and they decide if it has to go to the PACC. Initially the PACC was entiteld to take complaints but that has recently changed. All complaints has to go to NACC first. (In my case it started at the PACC, but when they found out that the surcharges where ordered by the director they had to transfer the case to the NACC)

 

The NACC has the duty to follow up the case and the prosecution needs also to be reported back to the NACC. They can take actions if the prosecution or punishment is not in line with there findings. Unfortunately there isn't a specific timeframe but it is mentioned that they can interfere if the case is abnormally delayed.

New regulations came into force on 30 September 2019 that foreigners can be charged up to 100% on top of the regular fee for Thai citizens that pay in cash (no health coverage)
