The EC stated on March 3 that Thanathorn’s shareholding in V-Luck media violated Section 151 of the election law, which stipulates that a person who was knowingly not qualified shall be fined Bt20,000 to Bt200,000 or face one to 10 years of imprisonment if he applied to become a member of Parliament.
An investigation into the shareholding case has been completed and the evidence will be presented to a meeting of the EC. An update was expected next week.
Regarding the case of Thanathorn extending loans of Bt191.2-million to Future Forward, the EC is scrutinising the ruling of the Constitutional Court that resulted in the dissolution of the party.
