Prawit denies any links with cashiered Chinese generals

DEPUTY PREMIER and Defence Minister Prawit Wongsuwan yesterday denied any connections with two senior Chinese generals who were recently stripped of their military ranks and Communist Party membership over corruption allegations.

 

General Prawit, who is in charge of security affairs, said the media often made “untrue allegations” about him and caused him to become “the weakest link” within the ruling junta – the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO).

 

Media reports said the disgraced Chinese generals – Fang Fenghui and Zhang Yang – had come to Thailand to discuss China’s sales of military hardware to the Thai military.

 

However, Prawit yesterday maintained that he had neither met the Chinese generals nor knows them personally. 

 

“I don’t know the two generals in question. The person who came to meet me was Meng Jianzhu, who has already retired. I am familiar with him,” Prawit said.

 

Before his retirement last year, Meng had served as the secretary of the Central Political and Legal Affairs Commission of the Communist Party of China. He also headed China’s Central Public Security Comprehensive Management Commission.

 

Prawit said yesterday that the purchases by the Armed Forces were carried out in the form of government-to-government deals, with no involvement of any private company. 

 

He maintained that the purchases were done by the Armed Forces and that the NCPO was not involved.

 

Massive corruption

 

The Chinese government last Tuesday announced it was stripping the two generals of their ranks and party membership.

 

“The violations are very serious and the scale of the corruption is huge. It caused serious damage,” according to a statement released through state news agency Xinhua.

 

Fang, the former chief of joint staff, is under investigation in a corruption case involving more than 100 million yuan (Bt500 million). 

The statement from the Central Military Commission said Fang, 66, had seriously violated political discipline and central government rules that ban extravagance and taking bribes.

 

Separately, the commission also said Zhang, a former head of its political work department, had been stripped of his rank as general and his party membership. Zhang, 66, hanged himself at his home in Beijing in November 2017 when he was being investigated.

 

“Zhang attempted to escape punishment through committing suicide. This has seriously damaged the party and the army,” the statement said.

Weakest link? Try 'laughingstock'. You are an utter embarrassment who should have fallen on your sword a long time ago if you possessed an iota of integrity.

How did legendary Anne Robinson use to say so eloquently?

 

"You ARE the weakest link. Good bye."

By the way,i said Dracula,not one of my esteemed fellow posters Darcula who we all know from his avater he possibly may be

There is more than enough that is true about him that makes Thailand look really bad:  Watches, the quote placing blame on the Chinese who died on holiday.  and the remarks about the beaten cadet.  He is an entitled little concubine of the junta that seems to have no redeeming attributes.

No wonder the Toad is asking for attention to be diverted to his political competition. The fact that his Chinese brothers share the same political and business approach to life would seem to indicate there is a connection. Be carful not to be hit by the spew being emitted from the Toad's mouth.

Would they really be tossed.

As it seems to be much more of a common thread throughout your beloved siwilai cultures.....more often than not. 

Skullduggery and corruption is the real make up of the so called siwilai societies - and based as so. 

 

 

I'm sure this doesn't exist for those whom dwell in their dreamy fantasy state of a superior Eurocentric mantra.

The Thai people have amazingly a lot of patience...

Intelligent and connected indifference might be a better offering.

All the while, getting on with their independent lives.
