A nine-member board is likely to be set up to oversee the Anti-Money Laundering Office (Amlo) under the proposed plan to turn the agency into an independent body.
Amlo secretary-general Seehanart Prayoonrat yesterday said that under the planned restructuring, Amlo will report to a nine-man board, instead of the justice minister, who under the existing law is the agency's supervisor. The proposed board is expected to comprise top officials from various ministries and representatives appointed by parliament, he said.
The details of the planned restructuring were unveiled after acting permanent secretary for justice Chanchao Chaiyanukij confirmed on Wednesday a draft law that could allow Amlo to become an independent body had been approved by the National Council for Peace and Order's (NCPO) legal team.
