NLA Whip denies being lobbied to impeach former MP’s


BANGKOK, 1 July 2015 – The Whip of the National Legislative Assembly (NLA) has said the NLA is by no means influenced by groups lobbying for the impeachment of 248 former MP’s, as the NLA has always exercised its judgment in accordance with the law.

According to the NLA Whip, Dr Jed Sirathranont, the NLA has yet to be notified as to who would be designated by the defendants to present their cases at the upcoming hearing session on July 15-16.

In response to rumors of lobbying by partisan groups calling for the political ban of the former MP’s, Dr Jed said the NLA would be impartial in its decision, in accordance with the rule of law.
