Chiang Mai MP’s ‘unusual wealth’ to be seized: court

By The Nation

 

The Supreme Court’s Criminal Division for Political Office Holders on Thursday ruled to seize assets of former Chiang Mai MP Kasem Nimmonrat, who was allegedly close to Pheu Thai Party executives while he served as the provincial administration’s adviser, because of his unusual wealth.

 

Assets including company shares, land deeds and other sources of wealth worth about Bt186.6 million in total.

 

The National Anti-Corruption Commission had already resolved that the former MP could not explain or demonstrate how he had acquired the assets. The commission brought accusations against him, which forwarded the case to the courts and ended in its conclusion Thusday.

I can imagine that if the The National Anti-Corruption Commission looked into the affairs of the very rich people in Thailand, they would find that a significant fraction of Team Rich could also not be able to explain or demonstrate how they had [legally] acquired their assets.

 

Isn't your imagination quite a bit uniform (typo?)

I think they are being selective. Between now and the next election they will periodically trot more of these PTP illegal enrichment cases to subtly entrench their own ideas of who should govern which of course will be themselves in one guise or another.

Sorry I had to go with the following " I think they are being selective " key word think. My crystal ball is in for a silicon patch and so it is rather cloudy at the moment. I am going to butcher a chicken and read its entrails and after that I will get back to you. Please be patient as I am new at entrail reading.

Your response highlights the stupidity and prejudice one finds in forums. Not funny at all.

And your response highlights the totally blinkered approach often seen on Thai forums, but I did find it very funny. !!!

In India they have the Lok Ayudya, who looks for inexplicable and disproportionate assets. They are very busy and regularly relieve crooked politicians of significant sums.

I suspect here though, those targeted will be those in opposition to the PM and pals.

Bit strange though, don'cha think?

Ya know Chiang Mai, Udon, Ubon, back to Chang Rai, all being investigated for unusual wealth.

Yet, in Surat Thani, one of Thailand's  most famous, most influential and WEALTHY politicians, never gets a look in. Strange that. Innit.

Nor strange at all, unless you are accusing him of something.  Maybe he has justified his assets and the sources and nothing amiss was found?  It does happen.
