House fails to meet quorum again

The House of Representatives failed to meet quorum for three consecutive days Thursday.

The meeting was initially scheduled at 9 am but the chairman of the meeting delayed it to 10:30 am after he saw not many MPs were pressent.

After the meeting started and the House deliberated the second reading of the national rubber bill. Before the House voted the bill, MPs had to identify themselves with their electronic ID cards but the system reported that only 223 MPs were present.

When Democrat MP Thana Chirawanij asked for the rechecking of the number of MPs, it turned out that only 218 MPs were present. It required at least 237 MPs for the House to make quorum.

The meeting was adjourned at 3 pm.

Taiwanese man gets 20-year imprisonment for duping others to transfer him Bt2.1m

The Criminal Court Thursday sentenced a Taiwanese man to 20 years in jail after convicting him in duping 23 people to transfer him Bt2.118 million.

Lee Jui Jung was initially sentenced to 69 years in jail for 23 counts of crimes, but the court commuted the punishment by half. But since the law sets the maximum penalty of 20 years, the court gave the maximum jail term on the Taiwanese man.

The court ruled that the man collaborated with others, who were still on the run, to pretend to be a call center and duped their victims to transfer them the money.
