THE NATIONAL ANTI-CORRUPTION Commission was today (August 5) petitioned to investigate scandals in which MPs of six splinter parties have accepted kickbacks in cash from a major coalition partner, allegedly referring to Palang Pracharath Party.

 

Somchai Srisutthiyakorn and Vera Somkwamkid of Thai Liberal Party lodged the petition for the anti-graft agency to look into the alleged monthly handout of “bananas”, figuratively referring to kickbacks in cash in today’s political jargon, from Palang Pracharath Party to the MPs of the pro-government splinter parties in question.

 

The alleged payoffs in cash has amounted to 100,000 baht and been secretly handed out monthly over the last several months to each of the recipient lawmakers of the splinter parties, most of which only have one MP each.

According to Somchai, a former election commissioner, not only those splinter parties but the largest coalition partner, allegedly referring to Palang Pracharath Party, could possibly be dissolved at the orders of the Constitutional Court if finally proven guilty as alleged.
