    There are some unclear details in this matter because I don't know why Duang's mother kept insisting in public that the son suffered a great deal in jail? I didn't know he ever spent time in jail. I also thought he was on the run for almost 1 year? Anyway, if he was in the army and he AWOL (absence without official leave), he should be court marshalled. Since the millitary already stripped him from his post due to his absence from duty, I don't know how they can ever argued he was innocent and he AWOL because he had to fled from the authority? His re-instatment is not just an insult to the intelligence of the general public but also shows how arrogant this government is.
    Marie <--doh! LOL. Got the names all mixed up! Sorry.
    Bucky, you are missing the point. If Duang's mother insists that, he, (Duang) suffered in jail, and his mother is married to the Interior Minister, that means Duang suffered in jail. Got it?

    Never approach a bull from the front, a horse from the rear, or an idiot from any direction.

    Duang probe tightens
    (BangkokPost.com, TNA)

    The National Counter Corruption Commission on Sunday gave Prime Minister Samak Sundaravej a 15-day deadline to explain how the publicly reviled son of then-interior minister Chalerm Yubamrung has managed to rejoin the Royal Thai Army.

    NCCC member Klanarong Chanthik, appointed to head an investigation of the curious said, said Mr Samak had 15 days to explain. Otherwise, the premier must lodge his objections to the investigating committee's composition, or to the mandate it has been given.

    Mr Klanarong did not say what could happen if Mr Samak simply ignored his demand.

    Mr Klanarong was appointed to head a new NCCC sub-committee to investigate whether Mr Samak abused his power as defence minister in readmitting Duang (formerly known as Duangchalerm) Yubamrung, son of Mr Chalerm.

    He claimed he sent his demand for action by the premier after the NCCC ``received a complaint'' from a party he did not name. The alleged complaint supposedly said the re-appointment of Mr Duang was unjust, that the decision had damaged the country and that the person at issue had insufficient qualifications to be in the Army.

    His remarks were made in apparent response to the regular Sunday morning talk to the nation by Mr Samak. The premier disclosed he had received a formal letter from the NCCC, notifying him that it has empowered a sub-committee to investigate the matter.

    Asserting that the investigation was not meant to unfairly pressure anybody, Mr Klanarong said that Mr Samak has within 15 days of receiving the NCCC's notification to object to the committee's composition and its task.

    If his objection is accepted, a new sub-committee will be appointed and it will restate the notification to Mr Samak and if he does not object then the new sub-committee will move to gather evidence and interview those persons suspected of being behind Mr Duang's reappointment, he said.

    Mr Samak in late April this year approved Mr Duang's application to rejoin the military. He had been discharged from the military in 2002 for desertion, while fleeing charges he had murdered a policeman in a Bangkok nightclub brawl. He was finally ``found'' in Malaysia - and was acquitted of the murder charge when witnesses suddenly refused to remember anything.

    The approval for him to return to the army was given Mr Chalerm was interior minister in Mr Samak's coalition government, having come to power in early February this year.

    Samak cries foul over NCCC probe over reinstatement of Chalerm's son into military service


    Prime Minister Samak Sundaravej Sunday cried foul over the investigation by the National Counter Corruption Commission against him for having approved the reinstatement of a son of former interior minister Chalerm Yoobamrung into the military service.

    Speaking during his Talk Samak Style, the prime minister demanded the NCCC to explain how the reinstatement had damaged the country and how he had committed a malfeasance as charged in the NCCC's order to set up a panel to investigate him.

    "Have I received money from Chalerm to appoint his son? Have foreign countries written letters to criticise Thailand over the reinstatement?" Samak asked emotionally.

    He said he simply approved the reinstatement after the military officials proposed the reinstatement according to proper procedures.

    One really has to be either stupid or ignorant or both to even ask this kind of question allowing a "suspected" murderer (with guilty writen all over) who AWOL to escape to another country for 1 year and eventually returned to face trail when convenientely all witnesses suddenly "forgotten" what actually happened.
    The family should've just be happy with the verdict and stay low profile for the rest of his life but instead he choose to "return" with a rub it in your face "I'm above the law and there's nothing you peasants can do about it" come-back. Kudos to the one ordering the investigation.
