Former Rak Prathet Thailand (Thailand) party leader Chuwit Kamolvisit visited the parliament on Friday to declare his decision to quit politics as a politician.
He brought with him a transistor and announced his intention to donate an unspecified number of transistors to the government so they can be distributed to people in flood-stricken southern provinces so that they can tune in to government broadcasts.
The former outspoken MP claimed that he had some confidential information about the Rolls Royce bribery case that he would like to share with the media. He identified one of the bribe takers as a man whose first name started with a Kor Kai alphabet, saying that the media should have known whether he was a minister or an executive of Thai Airways International.
Asked how he feels about the government’s capability to deal with the scourge of corruption, Chuwit said that it was already difficult to deal with an alleged graft case which was over year old, more difficult for a case which was over five years old and for cases which were over ten years old you can just forget about them.
