NACC challenges Thaksin bribe claim

- +

The National Anti Corruption Commission on Tuesday challenged ousted premier Thaksin Shinawatra to show evidence to back up his allegation that an NACC member had asked him for a bribe in 1999. 

The graft-busting agency was responding to a remark by Mr Thaksin made during his hour-long Sunday night Skype address to red-shirt supporters at a rally at Ratchaprasong intersection.

Mr Thaksin claimed that in 1999 an officer attached to the NACC - whom he identified only as "App" - allegedly asked for 600 million baht from him, in exchange not to prosecute him in the share-concealment case. Thaksin said he turned down the offer.
