Tarit targets Suthep over police station contracts

- +

Department of Special Investigation chief Tarit Pengdit on Monday suggested Democrat MP Suthep Thaugsuban may have tampered with the bidding to build 396 new police stations, most of which have still not been built, at huge cost to the state. 

PCC Development and Construction Co (PCC) won the bidding to build 396 new police stations across the country for the Royal Thai Police at a cost of 6.67 billion baht budget during the Democrat-led Abhisit government.

The Royal Thai Police Office finally entered into a contract with PCC on March 25, 2011, and 877 million baht in advance payments had been made to the company.
