NACC seeks to check on wealth of coup makers

The National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) said yesterday that members of the junta had to declare their assets in their capacity as military leaders according to law.

The 1999 National Anti-Corruption Law authorises NACC to scrutinise the assets of politicians and high-ranking officials, Witthaya Akompitak, deputy secretary-general of the NACC, said.

When asked if the Army generals who are in charge now could no longer be considered commanders, Witthaya said he did not know. He admitted that there was no specific law aimed at getting coup makers to declare their assets.
