Charter court takes on case of revoking Thammanat’s MP status

The Constitutional Court on Wednesday (June 17) took on the case of Deputy Agriculture Minister Thammanat Prompao to see if his MP status should be revoked.

 

The minister has been given 15 days to come up with a counter argument.

 

Thammanat is being attacked by the opposition in relation to a court case in Australia, in which he was charged and sentenced to six years in jail for importing and trafficking drugs in the 1990s.

 

He served four years in jail Down Under before being deported to Thailand. According to the Constitution’s Article 98 (10), no MP or minister can serve office if they have a criminal record.

Shock, gasp part, the real naughty stuff happened before the Australian Heroin arrest, or the fake credentials. Yep there is something worse, which he was arrested for and then suddenly released. Interestingly you have a real hard time getting info on that case.  Now you are saying what could be worse than smuggling heroin ?!

'Now you are saying what could be worse than smuggling heroin'

Obviously getting caught smuggling it.

Wonder why he hasn’t been suspended like  Thanatorn was. Guess you can’t have people who may or may not have had media shares transferred on time to serve as MPs. That would be immoral. As for people with known-drug offenses, that’s fine. Good moral compass there, Thailand. 
 

Anyhoo, it will be very interesting to see the courts reasoning as to why he’s fit to continue being a minster.

I am not joking - and it has nothing to do with heroin! If you can't get this, you are not on my pub quiz team.
