He confirms that he is serious to quash corruption. When he finds organizations that are corrupt, he will tackle the cause right up to the head, even if it is a Minister. Whoever do not use the e-auction process will be punished. He pleads with the media to be calm and wait for the result of the Nong-ngoo Hao bribery investigation.
