Commerce Ministry to scramble for 20 billion baht damage pay over G-to-G rice scam


BANGKOK- The Ministry of Finance has called on the Ministry of Commerce to have six politicians and government officials pay an estimated 20 billion baht in damage compensation concerning a government-to-government rice scam.

The Ministry of Commerce is currently examining legal details of the issue and will notify those who might be legally obliged to pay for such damage to the government, said government spokesman Sansern Kaewkamnerd.

He said the government did not delay the case involving a previous government’s rice subsidy program but was working on it.
