Pheu Thai seeks legal scrutiny of Prem

- +

A Pheu Thai Party legal adviser said on Sunday he will ask the Office of the Ombudsman to examine whether the payment of a position allowance for Gen Prem Tinsulanond’s statesman status is unconstitutional. 

Ruangkrai Leekitwattana said he will petition the Ombudsman Monday asking it to determine if the payment — carried out under section 5 of the Royal Decree on Position Allowance for Privy Councillors and Statesman — may violate the constitution. 

He will also ask the agency to forward its findings and decision to the Constitutional Court which will deliberate and later rule on the matter.
