Former PDRC leader Suthep Thaugsuban bailed after being charged with corruption


Recommended Posts



A former Deputy Prime Minister of Thailand, Suthep Thaugsuban, was granted bail by the Supreme Court’s Criminal Division for Political Office Holders after malfeasance charges were filed against him, by the National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC), in connection with a 5.3-billion-baht project for the construction of 396 police stations when he was in office just over a decade ago.


Suthep is best known as the leader of the now-defunct People’s Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC), the political group that held massive street demonstrations against the Yingluck Shinawatra administration in the year leading up to the May 2014 coup.


Four other individuals and a company were also charged for their alleged involvement at the time when Suthep was deputy prime minister in the government of then Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva. Among the other defendants are former police chief Pol Gen Pateep Tanprasert and PCC Development and Construction Company.

Perhaps check some properties / resorts in the South owned under different ..............Lots of them build in the past 5 years or so, by a very well known Southern polly. Some of them worth a pretty penny.

Let's not forget the others who also played their part in the orchestrated coup: the yellow bureaucrat trade unions, the yellow judiciary, the yellow EC, the yellow universities, the Dem party.....

And a certain Monk who raided the DSI building with his goons.

Can't abide this duplicitous little snake who wriggles out of everything... because he knows where all the skeletons are buried. Truly the dinosaur poster-boy for all that is wrong with the old ways of doing things and Thailand's politics.

Spot on. This douchebag is as much responsible for the current travesty that calls itself Thailand as anyone. What a tool. 

.....and a gangster. Akin to all of the others, regardless of political identities that they cuddle up to.
