Deputy Interior Minister Chuchart Hansawat has denied any knowledge about a ministry committee's assertion that Deputy Prime Minister and Interior Minister Yongyuth Wichaidit is qualified for absolution under the 2007 Exoneration Act.
Mr Chuchart, in his capacity as chairman of the Ministry's Civil Service Committee, said the 2007 Exoneration Act had not been raised for discussion during a recent meeting of the committee.
"The committee did not consider the 2007 Act [in connection with Mr Yongyuth's status]. This story is unfounded. I am not aware of it," he said. "What I know is that it [the committee] has expelled a former [interior] permanent secretary. "
