The Office of the Private Education Commission (OPEC) will assume control of Bangkok Christian College in response to four months of intense lobbying by its teachers, present and former students and their parents.

OPEC secretary-general Attapon Truektrong announced on Thursday (November 28) that the school’s current director and manager have been given seven days to present documentation for all property purchased with college funds.

An administration committee will meet on Friday to further discuss the issue.

Attapon said his office had found “suspicious behaviour” in the management of the school budget that would be investigated.

Those who’d pushed for the OPEC takeover expressed gratitude and relief on hearing the announcement and urged the office to ensure no one gains personally from the college budget.

Their campaign began as a show of support for former school director Supakit Jitklongsap and former manager Watcharapong Apinyanurangsee and an appeal for an investigation into the Church of Christ in Thailand’s management of the college.
