Launching Proactive Anti-Corruption Measures

June 15, 2021


The Office of the National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) is launching proactive measures to prevent corruption and malfeasance in the public sector.

NACC Secretary General Warawit Sukboon joined the event \"NACC Executives Meet the Press through the Zoom system on 14 June 2021.

In this event, he explained that if NACC suspected that any project was likely to be involved in corruption, it would be able to order officials to conduct investigations to prevent possible damage. NACC would also be able to give advice to the responsible agency, so that it would be able to rectify the situation. The preventive measures against corruption must be carried out on a continual basis.

Mr. Warawit stated that, after the Organic Act on Counter Corruption B.E. 2561 (2018) had been enacted, NACC issued 78 subordinate laws and improved its work concerning the prevention and suppression of corruption, as well as asset and liability examination.

Regarding the suppression of corruption, it has established special offices to deal with certain cases, such as conflicts of interest and corruption issues in natural resource sectors.

In order to enhance the efficiency of asset and liability examination, the NACC Asset Inspection Group has been assigned to directly handle cases of unusual wealth, with an additional investigation process.

From October 2020 to May 2021, there were 4,920 corruption complaints handled by NACC, a decline by 1,403 cases, when compared with the same period of the previous year.
