THE National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) has received new information related to the impeachment case against former prime minister Abhisit Vejjajiva and his then-deputy Suthep Thaugsuban in relation to charges over the 2010 crackdown.
NACC member Wicha Mahakun said the agency had received additional information and evidence from National Legislative Assembly (NLA) member Somchai Sawaengkarn, who was a former chief of the sub-panel that followed up on political cases that resulted in deaths and casualties.
Wicha said Somchai had handed the evidence to the NACC panel in charge of Abhisit and Suthep’s impeachment, adding that this data had not been revealed earlier, especially in relation to the death of General Romklao Thuwatham in April, 2010.
The NACC member said the information provided by Somchai was detailed and in depth as he had teamed up with a number of specialists as well as government and military officials to look into what really happened during the crackdown.
Wichai said the information could not be revealed at this stage as the NACC panel working on impeaching the former ministers had to present the data to the commission for consideration first.
The NACC might also invite involved individuals to provide more information.
Wicha, meanwhile, insisted that the information provided by Somchai was neutral as he had acted on behalf of the Parliament and not on a personal basis.
