Sanit ‘never worked for ThaiBev’

BANGKOK: Metropolitan Police Bureau Chief Sanit Mahathavorn claims there was a “mistake” in his asset declaration and insists he has never worked as an adviser for the alcoholic drink giant, Thai Beverage Plc, the Ombudsman says.

The Office of the Ombudsman’s Secretary-General Raksagecha Chaechai said Lt Gen Sanit claimed his asset declaration submitted to the National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) contained a “mistake” because he did not prepare it himself, which caused a misunderstanding among his staff.

In fact, Lt Gen Sanit claimed he has never done the job in question, an assertion now backed up by the beverage giant itself.

Lt Gen Sanit also claimed he clarified the issue with the Ombudsman late because he was swamped by work, Mr Raksagecha said, adding Lt Gen Sanit also sent to the office details of his work routine as evidence. The claim he was taking money from an alcohol giant caused widespread criticism at the time.

A civic group, the Association for the Protection of the Constitution, late last year asked the Office of the Ombudsman to look into the matter. The move came after the NACC revealed Lt Gen Sanit’s asset declaration after he was appointed a member of the National Legislative Assembly.

According to the asset report, Lt Gen Sanit had been receiving a monthly payment of B50,000 from Thai Beverage since 2015, which sparked public criticism about ethics and a conflict of interest. Mr Raksagecha said Thai Beverage has also written to the Ombudsman, insisting the conglomerate had never hired the senior officer.

The scariest part, is that has recently been appointed a member of the National Legislative Assembly!

Reports indicate that Metropolitan Police Bureau Chief Sanit Mahathavorn received payments as an "advisor." It's easy to say he never did the work, but that is immaterial. To offer or exchange one's services for payment, clearly falls into the category of employment.

Sanit never 'worked' for ThaiBev?
Took him 10 weeks to come out with that? Just to denie?
Swamped by work? He clarified nothing. Just denied.
Who than, since 2015, did pay Sanit 50,000 thb per month, a Tea factory?
