Deputy PM praises ISOC for helping to return land title deeds used as collateral for loans
Thai authorities are to tackle the issue of off-system debts following the Internal Security Operations Command (ISOC)’s successful negotiation of fairer loan contracts covering debts worth Bt7.1 billion on behalf of 42,097 creditors this month so far, Defence Ministry spokesman Kongcheep Tantravanich said on Thursday.
Kongcheep said Deputy Prime Minister and Defence Minister General Prawit Wongsuwan led officials to visit Lop Buri to give moral support to the ISOC, Army police and administrative officials involved in tackling this issue.
