    None of these military usurpers of power in Thailand will ever go voluntarily - they will need to be kicked out if ever a free and fair election can be held in the Kingdom...... and that wont happen soon.

    ............and after such an election they will still be there-ready to take over again if they and their bosses do not like what is going on.

    In any democratic country, a military coup is quite simply sedition and treason and the perpetrators should be held to account for those crimes. If Thailand is ever to get beyond this cycle of quasi democracy and coups, it certainly wont be in my lifetime. Problems of corruption, nepotism/cronyism and the breakdown of the "Rule of law" in the legal system would all have to be addressed first. These problems are so endemic that there is virtually no person or organisation with the credibility to undertake the task.

    A friend, a PhD, was hired by one of Thailand's top universities, to properly administrate the handling of intellectual properties, generated by students and staff. Very quickly, the person that hired him was fired and he was pushed out of a job.

    It's not a matter of credibility; it's a matter of surviving the onslaught. And, as past polls have indicated, most Thais don't care, as long as they benefit.

    NACC comes up empty in Prawit scandal, saying watchmakers’ responses needed

    politics March 30, 2018 01:00

    By KAS CHANWANPEN

    THE NATION

    THE National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) continued to drag its feet in the case over Deputy Prime Minister Prawit Wongsuwan’s collection of luxury watches, showing no significant progress in the case yesterday.


    The anti-graft body instead asked investigators to find out who was the real owner of all the watches, NACC secretary-general Worawit Sukboon told a press briefing.

    Prawit had reported to the agency that the whole collection of more than 20 watches he had been spotted wearing on different occasions belonged to only one individual – his deceased, long-time, billionaire friend – the official said........

    This story is an escalating farce....."possession is nine tenths of the law". Surely NOBODY would go around "borrowing" a large collection of expensive watches/jewelery from assorted friends or someones deceased estate. The story keeps changing, but Prawit is in possession of these valuables and so must be presumed to be the owner. I note that with every change in his story, there is no mention of returning them to their "rightful owner/s".

    Thailand’s Deputy Prime Minister General Prawit Say’s Wristwatch Case is Over
    By Editor on Mar 30, 2018

    BANGKOK – Thailand’s Deputy Prime Minister (Rolex General) Prawit Wongsuwon said today that the controversy regarding the 22 luxury wristwatches and his diamond ring that he was seen wearing on different occasion was over now that the case is in the hands of the National Anti-Corruption Commission.

    At its meeting on Thursday (March 29), the NACC ruled that further probe was needed to determine the owner or owners of the 22 brandname wristwatches with investigators concerned trying to get information about the watches from ten dealers in Thailand who are yet to provide information to the graft-busting agency.

    The NACC also ruled that the diamond ring Gen Prawit inherited the diamond ring from his parent and there was no need for it to be declared because it was worth less than 100,000 baht.

    Reiterating his earlier claim that the 22 wristwatches were borrowed from a friend who was already dead and the ring was inherited from his father, Gen Prawit expressed confidence that the case was over and the next step is for the probe panel to find more information from the watch dealers.

    “Fact is fact. It was the media which made up the controversy,” said the deputy prime minister.
