PM calls for justice in her 30-million-baht loan allegation


BANGKOK, 19 March 2013 Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra has confirmed that she submitted a proper list of her assets and liabilities to the National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC), believing the commission will give her justice. 

Following the NACC’s finding that she did not disclose her husband’s 30-million-baht loan in the assets and liabilities list, Ms Yingluck has called on the NACC and relevant units to consider the matter with fairness and asked for a chance to continue her work as Prime Minister. Ms Yingluck also denied the rumors that there was already a PM candidate to succeed her in case she was unseated because of the loan case.

Spokesman of the ruling Pheu Thai Party Prompong Nopparit said the NACC had not set up a panel to investigate the 30-million-baht loan yet. He claimed the allegation was a political game to discredit the premier.
