From the We will get the bugger Dept  ;D


A petition was filed on Tuesday with the Senate Committee for Monitoring Corruption and Promotion of Good Governance asking it to follow up four cases related to an order by the Supreme Court's Criminal Division for Holders of Political Positions to seize 46-billion-baht from former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra.

The petition was filed by Kaewsun Atibhodhi, a  member of the disbanded Assets Scrutiny Committee (ASC), and Tul Sitthisomwong, leader of the anti-red shirt Network of Citizen Volunteers Protecting the Land. It was received by Sumol Sutwiriyawat, deputy chairman of the Senate committee.

In the petition, the committee was asked to follow up the work of the National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC), the Office of the Attorney General (OAG), and the Securities and Exchange Commission involving four cases related to the Supreme Court's order to seize Thaksin's assets.

In the Thaksin assets seizure case, the Supreme Court ruled that Thaksin and his ex-wife Potjaman na Pombejra concealed their Shin Corp shares and controlled the shares through proxies - their adult children and other relatives including  Yingluck Shinawatra, the No 1 Pheu Thai party list candidate, who held 20 million shares on Thaksin's behalf.

Of the four related cases, the first was on Thaksin's false statement given to the NACC; the second on false statements given by Thaksin's ex-wife, children and relatives to the SEC; the third on Shin Corp's false transaction reports to the SEC; and the fourth on Thaksin's alleged abuse of power to enrich Shin Corp.

Mr Kaewsun said he wanted the Senate committee to ask the NACC, SEC and OAG what progress had been made on the four cases.
