Five charged in multi-million baht swindle - top public figures mentioned

Recommended Posts

If a "wealthy retired engineer" in a third-world country like Thailand has put almost 10 million US$ aside that - even more importantly - he willingly dispenses as soon as favors for some bigwig names are brought into play, leads me to believe that said "wealthy retired engineer" may not always have been oh so kosher himself and in his day probably has relied on requesting more than a few "favors" himself. At least he seems to be very, very familiar with the "favor" mechanics that make all too many people in this country "unusually wealthy".

Very easy for an 'Engineer' here to have a lot of dosh, especially if he is in charge of signing off huge Infrastruture Projects or even Road Building, as the bulk of such jobs

The filth on this country is waist deep and i just wish that one day some really big names are implicated in one of these disgusting affairs and have no way of squirming out of it !

Waist high????

This country is up to it's neck in corruption.... kick-backs and pay-offs for positions at every level and agency, even at the top of the tree... millions of baht exchanges hands [far greater than the salary involved could ever accumulate] where does this wealth come from I wonder?

One day corruption always brings down a country... the clock is ticking for this cancer to purge Thailand once and for-all!

"The victim also believed that 100 million baht of his money was being given to deputy prime minister Prawit Wongsuwan as a present."

 

I don't usually blame the victim, but if this is true, for this reason alone he deserves to lose all his money. Anyone who wants to gift 100 million baht to the watchman is either insane or, more likely, morally bankrupt.

And folk here thought Thaksin was the corrupt one 555

He was corrupt and the fact that other people currently in office may or may not be equally or more corrupt doesn't absolve him from blame.

There is no question that these officials were in any way involved.

 

This is a very awkward sentence. 

 

Given that it is known that high level government positions are routinely bought and sold

 

This is disgusting and should be humiliating to any person of integrity.
