NACC to be asked to probe Commerce Ministry for allowing wheat imports

The Association for the Protection of Thai Constitution will lead a group of maize farmers to lodge a complaint with the National Anti-Corruption Commission against the Commerce Ministry and the Products and Price Control Committee on Monday.

The association secretary-general Srisuwan Janya told reporters on Sunday that the association and maize farmers would demand the NACC to investigate the Commerce Ministry and the Products and Price Control Department for alleged misconduct and abuse of authority.

He alleged that the two state agencies had allowed huge amount of wheat to be imported into the country, resulting in the suppression of the prices of maize, tapioca and rice.
