The Supreme Court on Wednesday sentenced the president of the Chiang Rai provincial administration organisation (PAO) to two years and six months in prison, suspended for two years, a 50,000 baht fine and a ten-year political ban. 

Salakjarit Tiyapairat was found guilty of violating the Criminal Code and the Local Election Act by the court.

The case came about after former Chiang Rai PAO president Rattana Chongsuthanamanee filed a lawsuit against her successor Mrs Salakjarit for making a false statement to the court in violation of Section 137 of the Criminal Code and Section 114 of the Local Election Act.
