The National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) may soon ask Deputy Minister of Agriculture and Cooperatives Mananya Thaiset about why she has not yet submitted her declaration of assets and debts to the anti-graft body within the required time frame, says NACC secretary-general Worawit Sukboon.

 

Worawit on Monday (September 23) said officials later that day would gather information regarding the matter and consider issuing a letter to Mananya requiring her to provide her reason for failing to file.

 

The reason may be a case of a legal exception under Section 105 of the 1999 NACC law that would allow a person who used to hold the position of mayor to be waived from revealing assets, he noted.

 

However, as there is also a newer 2018 law that requires all to reveal their assets, officials would study related laws and present their findings to the NACC meeting on September 24. The Commission would then render a decision whether Mananya has to submit her asset declaration, he said.

 

If the NACC decided Mananya was required to submit the declaration, the NACC secretariat will issue a letter to notify her accordingly, he added.
