A fit and proper person?

A fit and proper person? - Bleacher Report, February, 2010
...These changes were brought in after former Thailand Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra's rein as Manchester City owner. Just a year after buying Manchester City he was charged with corruption and had 1 billion worth of assets frozen by the Thai authorities in 2007.
However, there was more. The "Human Rights Watch" wrote a letter to the Premier League (confirmed in a statement issued by the Premier League of receipt of the letter on 31st July 2007) questioning how they could deem Shinawatra "fit and proper" with there being a number of alleged human rights violations against him.
How can someone who just 12 months after being cleared by the Premier League to take over the football club be then charged with such offences and have such serious allegations against their name?...
