The anti-corruption panel investigating the luxury watch scandal involving Deputy Prime Minsiter General Prawit Wongsuwan will submit the results of its preliminary inquiry to the National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) next week. This follows a letter of clarification submitted to the panel by the general.

NACC secretary-general Worawit Sukboon said on Tuesday that the panel had received a 38-page letter, which explains all the 25 watches that were seen on Prawit’s wrist on various occasions but were not reported as assets to the NACC as required by law.

However, Worawit said, the probe was not yet complete because the panel needed to talk to two more witnesses. Also, the companies that imported the watches have not yet submitted evidence to the panel.

Worawit said the panel would submit its initial findings to the NACC so that it could consider the case and suggest to the panel what else needs to be done in the investigation. This possibly includes inviting Prawit to meet the panel in person, he said.
