The Office of the Ombudsman will expedite the investigation into a petition filed by a Pheu Thai Party member for it to look into the allegation that former prime minister Abhisit Vejjajiva had evaded military conscription, office spokesman Rakkecha Chaechai said.
Mr Rakkecha said the petition was filed by Kamol Bandaiphet, a Pheu Thai Party member, on the grounds that the Defence Ministry had failed to examine the allegation that Mr Abhisit had used fake documents to apply for the teaching job at the Chulachomklao Royal Military Academy and had evaded conscription.
The Office of the Ombudsman, on receiving the petition on May 22, immediately started to examine related documents. It had sent a letter to Defence Minister Sukumpol Suwanatat, asking for an explanation.
