Sakda Vicheansil

 

House Speaker Chuan Leekpai has given the greenlight for authorities to question MPs sitting in a panel scrutinising the 2021 budget to uncover the truth behind an alleged Bt5-million bribe demand from Sakda Vicheansil, director general of the Department of Groundwater Resources.

 

Sakda claimed that an MP had contacted him by phone demanding that he raise Bt5 million in fake documentation for help with the approval of DGR’s Bt1.27 billion budget.

 

Chuan has instructed Anan Pholamnuay, chief of the budget scrutiny panel, to investigate the case, while he has had his team inform the National Anti-Corruption Commission about the allegation in case it wants to look into the case.

Politician in question said to be from Prayuths ruling coalition so nothing will come of any investigation.

 

The issue will be kicked around various committees like a hot potato , each claiming it is under another committees jurisdiction until it goes cold and dies of atrophy.

Not sure there is a more spinless or toothless politician in the world than Leekpai. There is a reason why he is in that chair, and its not because anyone thinks he is good at the job.

its all very clear on audio. not quite sure how they will bury this but should be fun. Like a few years ago when they had judges on tape discussing inappropriate issues and they went agressively after the person who released the tape.

With audio proof I'd say that's on the cards, if not... why not?

Yea more like shoot the messenger. Nobody wants to rock the boat they all take their cut one way or the other.. sickening. Just like with the red bull case. So much wrong but nobody will do anything.
