Timely for Prawit to get boot from panel
It is the right decision for Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha to remove Deputy Prime Minister Prawit Wongsuwon -- who is being probed over his luxury wristwatch scandal -- from the National Anti-Corruption Committee, a body established by the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) to regulate, coordinate and monitor corruption prevention and elimination efforts by all government agencies.
Still, the proof of the pudding is in the eating. The efficiency of the committee has something pretty much to do with the outcome of its work.
Gen Prayut used his special powers under Section 44 of the interim charter on Wednesday to reshuffle the committee, which is chaired by himself and has not called a meeting for almost a year.
