Department of Special Investigation (DSI) special case officer Thawal Mankhong on Tuesday delivered a 800-page dossier to the Office of the Attorney General seeking the indictment of the Bangkok governor for allegedly illegally granting an extension contract to the Bangkok Transit System Co (BTSC) skytrain operator. 

Pol Lt-Col Thawal recommended the indictment of Mr Sukhumbhand Paribatra and nine associates for their roles in the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration's decision to grant a 30-year operating contract to BTS during his previous term in office.

The case file was handed to Winai Damrongmongkolkul, director-general of the OAG's Department of Special Litigation.
