Suriyasai urges NLA members to declare assets

Green Politics coordinator Suriyasai Katasila on Tuesday urged members of the National Legislative Assembly to declare their asset statements to prevent criticism about conflict of interest.

He posted on his Facebook that some members may not be aware that they hold more than five per cent shares in companies, which normally violate the past charters. Although the junta's provisional charter allows the members to hold the number of shares but the NLA could be alleged by the public as having conflict of interest.

"The NLA members should show their transparency and honesty from the beginning in order to reduce suspicion from public and society," he wrote.

He said the NLA will pass hundreds of bills so they need to prevent conflict of interest especially when the country and society are demanding a real nation reform.
