NACC to ques­tion Prawit over watch

The Jakarta Post - - AEAN 50 -

THAI­LAND: The Na­tional An­ti­Cor­rup­tion Com­mis­sion (NACC) on Thurs­day agreed to call De­fence Min­is­ter Gen. Prawit Wong­suwan to ex­plain his ex­trav­a­gantly lux­u­ri­ous watch and di­a­mond ring, which have not been de­clared in his as­sets.

The anti­graft agency chair­man Po­lice Gen. Watchara­pol Prasarn­ra­jkit said the NACC needed to know how Prawit had ac­quired the as­sets and see proof of own­er­ship.

Of­fi­cials will also com­pare the in­for­ma­tion with Prawit’s as­set dec­la­ra­tion made when he as­sumed his po­lit­i­cal po­si­tion as deputy prime min­is­ter, the chair­man said.

Watchara­pol, a for­mer PM’s deputy sec­re­tary-general at­tached to Prawit, said the in­ves­ti­ga­tion would be ex­pe­dited be­cause the deputy prime min­is­ter had agreed to be in­ter­viewed. — The Na­tion/ANN
