Jurin: Yongyuth has bowed to the law

- +

Deputy Prime Minister Yongyuth Wichaidit had finally bowed to the law and the facts by not chairing today's cabinet meeting, opposition chief whip Jurin Laksanavisit said on Tuesday. 

Mr Jurin, a Democrat Party list MP, said the National Anti-Corruption Commission ruled that Mr Yongyuth had committed a serious breach of discipline in connection with the Alpine land case and the Interior Ministry's civil service subcommittee had this month resolved to dismiss him retroactively from the position of deputy interior permanent secretary and acting secretary in 2002.

Mr Yongyuth was not entitled to be cleared of his offence under Article 5 of the Exoneration Act, which took effect from Dec 5, 2007 because he had never paid any of the penalty, as required by the law.
