Official Gets 50 Years In Jail For Wrongful Use Of Official Sedan
IN WHAT WAS SEEN as a rare court case, a senior government official in Yasothon was today (Oct. 12) sentenced to a maximum of 50 years in jail for having often turned a state-owned vehicle bearing the phrase “for official use only” into private use.

Between 2014 and 2016, the state-owned car had not been parked in the premises of the provincial administration but evidently found at Rungrak’s home in Saimun district and been often used by the defendant to shuttle himself to and from an army golf course where he had played golf.

A total of 21 counts of Rungrak’s convicted misconduct initially handed him a jail sentence of 105 years which was curtailed to 52 years and six months due to confession made by the defendant and finally cut down to a maximum of 50 years.

Quite a funny story when you read about all his colleagues who clearly knew and allowed it! What else has been 'diverted' over many years!
