The National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) will set up committees to probe public complaints after it opened 74 graft complaint-receiving centers at Army compounds under the Defence Ministry.


People can submit complaints at those centres or via the hotline 1299 or PO Box 444 Ratchadamnoen 10200, NCPO deputy spokeswoman Colonel Sirichan Ngathong said on Monday.

 

She said the committees will consider the credibility of the complaints before forwarding complaints deemed actionable to anti-graft agencies. 

 

If complaints relate to the Army, they will be scrutinised before being dealt with using bureaucratic measures, she said.

 

Sirichan said the centres were created in response to an initiative by Prime Minister General Prayut Chan-o-cha, who heads the NCPO, to extend platforms for people to make complaints about corruption.

 

They are also designed to show the public that the government is serious about combating graft, she added.
