Thailand: Graft fight gathers steam

Vicha Mahakun, the head of a committee probing the alleged mishandling in the 2012 hit-and-run case involving the Red Bull scion, Vorayuth “Boss” Yoovidhya, says his panel will do everything in its power to restore public confidence in Thailand’s justice system.

In an exclusive interview with the Bangkok Post, the former National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) member stressed the need to stamp out graft in the judicial system and processes which have discouraged investors, most of whom do not want to pay kickbacks and/or bribe corrupt officials.

“The biggest weakness in our anti-graft effort is that some people still think justice can be bought,” Mr Vicha said, stressing the importance of educating the public about the impact of corruption in society.
