Deputy Prime Minister General Prawit Wongsuwan on Thursday cancelled attending the national mineral management policy committee at Government House.

 

The deputy premier instead assigned Natural Resources and Environment Minister General Surasak Karnjanarat to chair the meeting.

 

Government House reporters have noticed that Prawit seems to be trying to avoid facing the media after being criticised for his possession of what appear to be an extravagantly luxurious watch and diamond ring, which were not declared in his assets.

 

The National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) will hold a meeting today to consider whether to launch an investigation into Prawit’s assets.
