Leniency law offers Yongyuth a lifeline

Dems insist minister resign for Alpine acts

- +

Interior permanent secretary Phranai Suwannarat insists Yongyuth Wichaidit can keep his interior minister post despite a ruling against him over his handling of the Alpine land case. 

Mr Phranai yesterday spoke to the media to clarify Mr Yongyuth's case after the ministry's Civil Service Committee (CSC) resolved on Sept 14 to retroactively dismiss him from the civil service. The dismissal order took effect retroactively on Sept 30, 2002.

The committee's resolution follows the National Anti-Corruption Commission's (NACC) decision to indict him on charges of unlawfully certifying the sale of monastic land owned by Wat Thammikaram to Alpine Real Estate Co and Alpine Golf & Sports Club Co during his stint as interior deputy permanent secretary.
