The Constitution Drafting Commission (CDC) plans to submit a third organic charter bill it has been working on to the National Legislative Assembly for deliberation and passage into law.

The organic law, a criminal code for proceedings against political office-holders, will see at least four major changes, according to the CDC spokesperson Udom Rattaamarit.

The first point is that a court can proceed with its own investigation in order to find as much evidence as possible and establish facts. The second point is the court can have a panel of no less than seven judges, not nine like before, to make proceedings against these people easier. 

The third point is the court can proceed with a case without the accused being present. The final point is that the accused can appeal if they have new evidence or new legal interpretations to show.
