The National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) has agreed to reactivate two cases against ex-premier Thaksin Shinawatra for extension of loans to Myanmar and online lottery.

 

The two cases are among three cases which the Supreme Court’s Criminal Division for Holders of Political Positions had disposed of since 2008 when Thaksin fled the country and could not be brought back for trial.

 

Another case involved the purchase of fire trucks in which corrupt officials also fled the country.
