NLA chief steps down as ombudsman

Pornpetch also said yesterday that he had handed in his resignation as ombudsman, though the notice would not take effect until September 1 as he still had unfinished work. He went on to say that this was his own decision, not the result of public pressure.

Before leaving the Ombudsman's Office, he said he would excuse himself from any cases that might have a conflict of interest, including the petition lodged by activist Srisuwan Janya against the NLA for not sufficiently mirroring Thailand's diversity.
