Speaking to the press at Parliament House in Bangkok this morning (Dec 18), Mr Sira said, “Now that the Supreme Administrative Court has upheld the decision to revoke the title deed for the condo project, officers – and especially the Karon Mayor – should be investigated for issuing unlawful documents,” reported state news agency TNA.

“We should freeze all accounts of the project owners and investigate whether they committed wrongdoing by acting together with officers of Karon Municipality,” MP Sira said.

“The owners knew well that they were not permitted any construction on the land registered under the NorSor 3 Kor title deed [following the Regional Administrative Court in Nakhon Sri Thammarat initially ruling that the title deed had been illegally issued], but they kept building and promoting the project to their customers,” he said.

“Can that action be considered fraud? If yes, I will further work on the legal process to charge them,” he added.

MP Sira, who serves as the Chairman of the House of Law, Justice and Human Rights Committee, said that he would be in Phuket on Monday to follow up on his investigation.

“On Dec 21, I will go to see the Phuket Governor to file a request to investigate the Karon Mayor and other relevant officers of the municipality,” he said.

“At this stage, my legal team is preparing to file a complaint to the Central Criminal Court for Corruption and Misconduct Cases (CCCM) and the National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) by the end of January,” he noted.

“On Jan 11, my legal team will file a request to the Constitutional Court to prosecute all of 57 MPs who filed a request to terminate my status as an MP under the allegations of ‘interfering with officials duties’,” he added.

The names of those who signed for formal complaint were never made public, while seven out of eight Constitutional Court judges ruled that Mr Sira did not do any wrongdoing in his highlighting of the investigation into the project, which the Department of Special Investigation (DSI) has now found through its own investigation is illegal.

“I want the court to charge them with the Section 157 of the Criminal Code for ‘Wrongful Exercise of Duties” so that they will know the result of their action. This will be a New Year’s gift for them,” MP Sira said.

Johnc...rubbish. It's his job as the Chairman of the House of Law, Justice and Human Rights Committee, yet he spends most of his time looking for people who speak ill of him and sues them. I think the number his law suits is up to 100 by now. He's no different to the convicted drug dealer.

And of course, jor12 ignores the fact that "seven out of eight Constitutional Court judges ruled that Mr Sira did not do any wrongdoing", but instead implies that the 57 witch-hunters had good reason to challenge MP Sira's intentions. The efforts by those 57 clearly were intended to support the corruption behind this project.

MP Sira is exactly what is lacking in Thai government...someone with integrity that is sick of the corruption that taints the entire country, from the top down. This project was well know to reek of corruption early on, yet the land thieves just powered ahead. I hope to see some heads roll over this, and I hope MP Sira has great protection.

Owners, knowing they were wrong/acting criminal, as well all Government officials involved should be arrested. Strange that Karon/Kata mayor walks still freely after many years ago accused of criminal doings. At least he should not have been Mayor anymore many years.

Jor12 should not leave us guessing what he means by saying: ..'There is good reason why 57 fellow colleagues want him out'..  Jor12 should substantiate his reaction. Just puffing something in the air is cheap.

JohnC | 19 December 2020 - 10:42:51

@Jor12. Yes there is. Because they are all corrupt and he is the only one standing up to them maybe.

I love this guy. At first I was sceptical...thinking this was going to be like all the other "investigations".  I hope he comes back and investigates all the projects in the National Park that we have read about so many times in the past.  Trisara, Landstate, Pullman, and 147 others.  

Jor12 | 19 December 2020 - 08:10:41

Paddy...you're joking of course? There is good reason why 57 of his fellow colleagues want him out yet there is one commentator who wants him to run the country.

Paddy | 18 December 2020 - 17:52:57

A politician with honesty and integrity. We need him running the country.
