On the book: Corruption law
PM Prayuth: On his hand… it is about his privacy.
Man: Under his feet… it is about the public.
[Deputy PM Prawit is facing the pressure to resign after photos showing him wearing luxury watches were circulated in the press and on social media.
Since seizing power, the junta has vowed to get rid of corruption and insisted that the military is superior to elected politicians.
However, the junta has been criticized for protecting members suspected of corruption, particularly in this case.
PM Prayuth insisted that the luxury watch issue does not violate corruption laws as it regards Prawit’s private assets not related to politics.
