Watchdog to mull Supoj wealth probe (Thailand)

The anti-corruption watchdog will meet on Tuesday to decide whether to investigate Supoj Saplom for being unusually wealthy, following the arrest yesterday of a fifth suspect in the daring robbery of the transport official’s home.

National Anti-Corruption Commission spokesman Klanarong Chanthik said a committee would be formed to probe the permanent secretary for transport’s finances if the commissioners unanimously agree with the allegations.

Suspects arrested over the theft allegedly told police they took 200 million baht from Mr Supoj’s home during the robbery earlier this month. The amount retrieved so far totals 12.7 million baht.

Mr Supoj insists the stolen money came from a wedding dowry for his daughter, but has declined to say how big the amount was.
