NACC eyes more asset disclosure

The National Anti- Corruption Commission ( NACC ) is looking to propose that officials from the Revenue Department, Excise Department, and Royal Thai Police (RTP ) be required to report their assets in the interests of enhanced transparency.

President of the Senate, Pornpetch Wichitcholchai, presided over today’s lecture to create awareness of the procedure and the importance of reporting assets and liabilities among legislature’s members as part of an effort to make legislators ‘ affairs more visible.

The conference was attended by the second evil president of the Senate, Supachai Somcharoen, chair of the NACC, Pol Gen Watcharapol Prasarnrajkit, assistant director- general of King Prajadhipok’s Institute, Issara Sereewatthanawut, and political employees.

According to Mr. Issara, the conference was intended to help people become aware of the importance of officials carrying out their duties with integrity and responsibilities, as well as the procedure and the importance of asset and liability declarations.

Members of parliament are required to make their investments and debts public, according to Mr. Pornpetch. Any violation of this provision may lead to the representative being charged with criminal conduct.

” Public reporting of goods is, therefore, like an act of demonstrating your accountability to prove you are not using your power to gain yourself”, said Mr Pornpetch.

The NACC needs to monitor the activities of the property because they might be converted into a different kind of property in order to avoid suspicion of dishonest action, according to Pol Gen Watcharapol, in addition to checking the accuracy and presence of the assets and liabilities reported.

The NACC chairman added that his organization will work with the Revenue Department, Excise Department, and RTP to change the regulations so that those with high levels of corruption, such as those from the Revenue Department, Excise Department, and RTP, can report their assets.
