The Cabinet will tomorrow consider a reshuffle list for the replacement of at least 10 top officials due to retire this year, a source at Government House said on Monday.

Among the retiring officials are PM Minister’s Office permanent secretary Jirachai Moonthongroy, who once chaired the Tort Liability Investigation Committee looking into the financial damage to the state caused by the Yingluck Shinawatra government’s rice-pledging scheme.

The secretary-general to the National Security Council, General Taweep Netniyom, and the director of the National Intelligence Agency, Ravee Prachuabmoh, are also among those due to retire later this year.

The permanent secretaries at the Interior, Social Development and Human Security, Labour, Energy, Commerce, Public Health, and Industry ministries will also be replaced this year.
