    The Ministry of Education has recently found out that over 88 million baht out of a total of 166 million baht being disbursed from the so-called Sema Pattana Chevit Fund supposedly for poor children had been embezzled by corrupt officials for themselves and their relatives for the past ten years.

    Education Minister Teerakiat Jareonsettasin said that the corruption concerning the Fund for poor children was uncovered during the internal auditing of the 2017 budget for the Office of the Permanent Secretary of Education.

    It seems to me that there's no one minding the cookie jar on a regular basis, unless previous internal auditors were nibbling.

    This was the military dictatorship that said it needed to be in power to stamp out, among other things, corruption.

    Rich being passed off as ‘underprivileged’; many locals in Ubolrat area being cheated.


    SOME rich people have been described as “underprivileged” by officials based in the Ubolrat Dam Self-Help Settlement Community, pointing to financial irregularities in use of the state budget.

    “They are rich enough to send their children overseas for education. But their names are being used to claim financial assistance from the state [very likely by corrupt officials],” Anti-Corruption Commission (PACC) acting secretary-general Lt-Colonel Korntip Daroj said yesterday....................

    5 southern governors told to investigate disbursement of fund from centres for the destitutes
    in Breaking News, Editor's Choice, General | March 17, 2018 | By Thai PBS

    Governors of five southern border provinces have been ordered by the Southern Border Provinces Administration Centre (SBPAC) to investigate if there are any irregularities in the disbursement of money for destitute people.

    The order followed a recent discovery that unscrupulous officials at a centre for the protection of the destitutes in Yala’s Kabang district had used the names of 18 “bundit arsa” volunteer graduates to claim fund, amounting to 2,000 baht per head from the centre to hire them to work.

    It turned out that the volunteer graduates were given between 500-1,000 baht each instead of 2,000 baht they were supposed to be given.

    In Songkhla province, Mr Samran Buapeng, a kidney patient in Ranot district, who was placed under the care of Her Majesty the Queen of the Late King Bhumibol, told Thai PBS reporter that he had never received the 2,000 baht allowance from the centre in Songkhla although his name appeared in the list of the recipients.

    Instead, he regularly received financial support from the Thai Red Cross, but never from the Songkhla centre for the distitutes, adding that he was totally unaware of the fact that his name was among a list of the recipients from the centre.
