PM urges tough punishment against civil servants in welfare fraud

As a new round of corruption scandals hits the government,  Prime Minister Gen Prayut Chan-o-cha today tries to demonstrate his intolerance toward the problem by declaring that state officials found implicated in an alleged embezzlement of salaries for disabled workers will be temporarily relieved, not just transferred.


He was responding to a petition submitted with National Human Rights Commission by a network for disabled people’s rights protection over alleged embezzlement of salaries paid to workers with disabilities. About 20,000 disabled workers hired for 9,500 baht a month have had their salaries deducted between 500 and 3,000 baht a month in the embezzlement scandal, said Labour Minister Pol Gen Adul Sangsingkeo, citing information from the petition.


An investigation into the alleged money embezzlement case would begin as soon as he returned to Bangkok, said Pol Gen Adul Tuesday while attending a mobile Cabinet meeting in Phetchabun.

More smoke and mirrors.  In fact if they really need to find out about dishonest and corrupt officials , not just for this instance, then all they need to do is line the walls of all government building with mirrors.

Time to start 'transferring' people to long jail sentences but there would be nobody left to run the country if all the criminals were jailed !

Temporary relieved. OMG, That is going to impress the public, I am sure.

I truly though the PM was a PEOPLES MAN when he took over. 

He should look into the minister who gave the 15 days to investigate it.

It would take longer than that to get a document released for evidence.

Another huge theft from officials to be brushed under the carpet.

The PM should realy consentrat on this and issue sevear punishments, huge fines, confiscation of large purchased over the years it was going on for, and banned from any type of government services for life.

The PM would have a good chance of being elected to PM next year.

Show the PEOPLE, MR PRIME MINISTER.

The real problem is when you replace these thieves you just get another bunch of thieves in their place.

Mighty big fighting words. I bet all investigations will grind to a sudden halt when the investigations get near to his military mates in respective ministries.
