NACC assures fair treatment of PM Yingluck

The National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) has asserted fair treatment towards caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra who has been charged with dereliction of duty in connection with the rice pledging scheme.
NACC member Vicha Mahakhun said the NACC has left the door fully open for Ms Yingluck to clarify the charges, reassuring that NACC members have performed their duties without bias.
He said the prime minister was allowed to assign a lawyer to defend the case – a practice which has never been permitted in the past.
Mr Vicha, however, warned Ms Yingluck’s lawyer not to over-express his opinion, or else he could be barred from appearing before the NACC in the future.
He said Ms Yingluck’s request for more witnesses for the case will be up to the NACC members’ discretion, and he is only one of the members.
He assured that the investigation will be transparent and said political parties should be careful in giving negative opinions against independent agencies.
He said he believed the NACC’s ruling will not plunge the country into turmoil.
NACC secretary general Sansern Poljiak said after caretaker Deputy Prime Minister Kittiratt Na-Ranong, the final witness in the case, have testified, the NACC will need a week before making its decision on the prime minister’s fate.
