A Democrat Party MP has petitioned the National Anti-Corruption Commission to investigate Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra and the entire cabinet over the compensation payments for victims of political violence.
Sathit Pitutecha, who represents Rayong province, said on Monday his petition was received by NACC secretary-general Apinan Issarangkura na Ayutthaya. The NACC is now considering whether to accept the case for consideration.
The MP said he had argued that cabinet meetings on Jan 10 and March 16 passed a resolution to pay compensation for victims of political violence between 2005-2010 as proposed by Ms Yingluck and Deputy Prime Minister Yongyuth Wichaidit, chairman of the committee for coordination and the follow-up of recommendations by the Truth for Reconciliation Commission.
