Education permanent secretary Karun Sakulpradit, chairman of the committee, said Viroj was hit with the most severe disciplinary penalty for having received B400,000 in exchange for admitting a student to Mathayom 1 (grade 7) at the school in the 2017 academic year.

The committee’s resolution was unanimous with all six votes in favour. Consequently, Viroj would not receive any benefits from the state, including a pension, Mr Karun said.

He also said two more school officials were also under investigation for alleged bribery. The findings would be reported to the Bangkok provincial education committee in the near future.

This incident came to light last June after a parent circulated a video clip showing Viroj receiving the money, allegedly to accept a child into Mathayom 1.

The Office of the Basic Education Commission set up a committee to look into disciplinary action against him in July.

The committee then transferred Viroj to a temporary position at Secondary Education Service Area Office 1 to ensure the probe was transparent and without interference.

If the commentator wants criminal charges laid, he should state what those are. If cash is paid over for services rendered, why should he have to pay them back?

Just expelled with lost of pension and other benefits only.
What are other benefits apart from salary?
Must he return the B 400,000 and all the other 'donations' he got throughout the years? ?
And why is he not prosecuted for criminal offence?
What a loose face for students and former students who morally supported him with roses. He bribed them for that show?
