Thailand: Mismanagement, graft sank THAI, says panel

Mismanagement linked to dozens of executives and corruption has led to the downfall of Thai Airways International Plc, according to the deputy transport minister.

The looting of the national carrier reportedly included an instance of an employee in the repair and maintenance division claiming 419 days or overtime for 3 million baht in a single year.

Thaworn Senneam of the Democrat Party held a briefing on Friday to announce the findings of a panel set up to investigate what went wrong at the flag carrier, which has filed for business rehabilitation. The investigation focused on operations between 2017 and 2019.
