NACC indicts Senate Speaker Nikom over alleged malfeasance related to charter amendment

The National Anti-Corruption Commission voted unanimously Thursday to indict Senate Speaker and acting Parliament President Nikom Wairatpanich over alleged malfeasance while chairing parliamentary meetings to deliberate a charter amendment bill on the Senate composition.

The decision of the NACC automatically suspended Nikom from his parliamentary duty pending a decision by the Senate whether to impeach him.

He was charged in his capacity as vice Parliament president while chairing the deliberations of the senatorial charter amendment bill.
