NACC warned it may face malfeasance charges

PM-lawyers-wpcf_728x413.jpg

BANGKOK: -- The National Anti-Corruption Commission was warned today that they might face charge of malfeasance in office in accordance with Article 157 of the Criminal Code for their refusal to allow seven more witnesses to testify in the defence of the premier and their refusal to check rice stocks.

Mr Bancha Parameesanaporn, a lawyer in charge of defending Ms Yingluck against the accusation of negligence of duty over the rice pledging scheme, said today that he would submit the last clarification to the NACC to reaffirm that the prime minister did not committee any wrongdoing as accused nor did she was negligent for not properly overseeing the rice pledging scheme.

Mr Bancha accused the NACC of not being fair to the prime minister for its refusal to allow seven more defence witnesses to testify and for its refusal to conduct field examination of rice stocks to prove wrong a report that over two million tonnes of rice have disappeared from the government’s rice stockpiles.

Bkk Post has an article where Transparency International is urging the government to stop intimidating the NACC.

Every good member of TV has also been conveying that message , it borders on contempt of court.

The lawyer is quite correct as the NACC, Constitutional Court etc regularly defy PTP law.

I think that the laws in most democratic countries would allow the defendant to call any witness they need. By denying Yinluck the chance to call witnesses to prove her lack of guilt, the NACC are showing themselves to be biased.

In Taksin's trial there were prosicution witnesses called who gave evidence when Taksin's lawyer was not allowed to be present.

The courts in Thailand need reform.

I don't believe that is correct. I think there is a limit to how many witnesses and possibly whether they are relevant, otherwise some trial could go on until the defense has called a few billion witnesses. Having said that, I think that the NACC has made a mistake. Even if the witnesses are totally irrelevant, they should have allowed them to avoid the appearance of doing anything incorrectly. Of course, this is the NACC. It's up to the Senate to decide what to do with the recommendation of the NACC.

I am more than willing to be corrected but I understand some of YL's witnesses were in essence ' character witnesses ' who, in other jurisdictions, are only called after a finding of guilt as part of mitigation.

If a defence witness is called to say YL didn't know what was going on as she never attended any rice committee meetings would simply be putting the noose around her neck but TIT so who knows ?

National Anti-Corruption Commission has already been categorically clear on the subject:

More witnesses? Not allowed.

We already have the necessary information...(to convict YS?)

To deny witnesses to a defendant shows bias.

So much for impartiality.

The NACC are clearly not on the side of blind justice. Then again, TIT

I believe that anyone who wants to stand up and defend Yingluck, and therefore publicly hang themselves, should be given the chance to do so.

Didn't a couple of the original ones realise this, and suddenly became too busy doing other stuff.

Source please. How is this intimidation? It seems it is the NACC that is intimidating the PM by not allowing the PM to defend herself. Perhaps they have long ago made up their minds on this case.

Go ahead and lodge the complaint with the Dems/PDRC....we all know that they setup the NACC and the NACC works for them. Its truly a job.

A few farmers complain of improprieties...(Since they haven't been paid)..and now, they try to unseat the PM. ONLY IN THAILAND!!

The PM doesn't even oversee the Rice Scheme. The GOVERMENT set it up so that the Commerce Dept. oversees the Rice Scheme Administration.

So why isn't the head of Commerce Dept. being removed?

This is all just politics. Let it be in Thailand.

Amazing how everyone bitches about Yingluck wanting more witnesses, time, rice checks and call it intimidation. What about Suthep completely defying the court by not turning up because he is busy inciting insurrection?

Suthep is indicted already and waiting the courtcase.

The NACC is now considering if they will indict Yingluck or not .

I don't think so.

If the guilt is already proven any more witnesses to prove lack of guilt are unnecessary.

Allowing more witnesses would anly waste tax payers money and the time of the court - and would allow the culprit's party more time to hide evidence and create more delusion.

Note -

- Yingluk is not up on any Criminal Charges. lets all be clear of this. This is simply an issue of whether or not she did her job properly. No criminal charges.

- She is charged with failure to take action when told that there MAY be mismanagment of the Rice Scheme.

- She is charged with improper firing of an employee.

- The PDRC folks stands in the streets in honor of a man that is up on Insurrection charges.

- The Dem's Leader is up on Murder Charges.

I suppose you get the point.

No it hasn't got an article "where Transparency International is urging the government to stop intimidating the NACC"

Don't lie.

The article reports that Transparency International called on the pro governement supporters to stop intimidating the government by barricading its offices and claiming it was biased.
