The National Anti-Corruption Commission is considering amending its controversial assets declaration announcement so that officials holding some positions would be exempted from having to declare their wealth and details about their assets would not be made public.

 

Deputy Prime Minister Wissanu Krea-ngarm said today that Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha, in his capacity as the head of the National Council for Peace and Order, would not invoke special power vested upon him by Article 44 of the interim constitution to interfere with the anti-graft agency over the controversial announcement.

 

Nevertheless, he said the anti-graft agency was trying to resolve the problem and it was possible that a new announcement might be issued to amend the existing one but insisted that the basic principle of good governance must remain intact.
