Yongyuth qualifies for cabinet post

- +

Deputy Prime Minister Yongyuth Wichaidit is qualified for a cabinet post despite being found to have breached discipline in connection with the Alpine land case in 2002 because he has been cleared of wrongdoing under a pardon act, interior permanent secretary Phranai Suwannarat said on Sunday. 

Earlier, the National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) ruled that Mr Yongyuth had breached discipline in connection with the Alpine case.

The Interior Ministry's civil service subcommittee, using the NACC's ruling, decided in a Sept 14 meeting that Mr Yongyuth be dismissed retroactively as interior deputy permanent secretary from Sept 30, 2002.
