Committee chairperson Pol Colonel Dussadee Arayawuth, who is also deputy permanent-secretary to the Justice Department, said suspect Suphat Saquandeekul, deputy director-general of the Department of Intellectual Property, wants five days to submit evidence and clarify himself to the committee.
After that, the panel will take no more than 10 days to consider whether to dismiss or sack this official.
“Primarily, his action has given Thai officials a bad reputation and the panel sees this as a severe disciplinary violation. Yet, the panel needs to consider his reason and explanation carefully as it will affect the pension this official will get,” he said.
