Yongyuth arrived at the Central Criminal Court for Corruption and Misconduct Cases today (February 17) for a hearing, but the Supreme Court rejected his petition that he had previously filed. Therefore, corrections officers took him to Bangkok Remand Prison to serve the two-year sentence.
The National Anti-Corruption Commission had accused Yongyuth of violating Section 157 of the Penal Code, which prohibits an official from wrongfully exercising or not exercising any of his or her duties to the injury of any person, or dishonestly exercising or omitting to exercise any of his/her functions.
