The richest 1% of Thais own 58% of the nation’s wealth. Enough injustice, reduce that gap, give the poor a chance to climb that ladder. Give them hope in that shady future. Corruption, Thai laws, policies and in-between are for the Elites to get richer with no regard to these crushed poor. It breaks my heart while walking in Bangkok to see children sleep in the streets. Being poor in Thailand is brutal, no food, no education, no future, no help from the government. Oh my Buddha, have mercy!
Prawit! How many kids can you feed with your expensive watches! We saw only 3 fancy watches from your collection of watches worth over 18 million baht. How many watches do you have!
Your expensive 3 watches can feed 1 million kids! Obviously, you don’t give a damn because you are on top of the ladder and don’t see these poor people down under. Tigers “Thieves” of the East!
Thailand’s Deputy Prime Minister and Defence Minister Prawit Wongsuwan explanation to NACC about his expensive watches that his businessman friend died earlier this year and he lent his watches. Some watches were not returned. Do you think anyone will believe that “Mumbo Jumbo”!
A platinum Richard Mille RM 002V2 model worth 12 million baht and a diamond ring is at least five karats, giving it a value of 4 million bahtor more.
Rolex Cosmograph Daytona Ice Blue Dial Platinum men’s watch which costs around 2 million baht.
Another expensive watch, Richard Mille RM 030, which normally costs around 4 million baht.
Last year, Prawit wasted 21 million baht to charter Boeing 747 with a capacity of 416 passengers for his 38 members entourage to Hawaii to attend an international security meeting. That’s leading by example. Self Sufficient! If I was in charge, I will ship that short fat guy in a box to Hawaii for 2000 baht.
The whole family is corrupt
His younger brother former police chief general Patcharawat Wongsuwan, is under investigation by the NACC for being unusually rich due to his ownership of the Rungroj Rungpatchara horse stablein Saraburi reportedly worth hundreds of millions of baht and also faces charges of concealing his wealth by putting his wife and daughter’s names as co-owners of a resort in Samut Prakan province.
The sad reality, while he is under investigation for his unusual wealth, he is a member in National Legislative Assembly (NLA) that will draft the law for Zero Corruption! What a joke! Abuse of power by those in power!
Only in Thailand, the criminals sits on the panel that drafts the criminal law that will prosecute them. This is the ultimate Thai Democracy!
No need to worry, the man in charge of NACC (National Anti-Corruption Commission) is well connected to that corrupt family. Pol Gen Watcharapol was a close aide of former police chief Pol Gen Patcharawat Wongsuwon, and after the May 2014 coup, Pol Gen Watcharapol was appointed secretary-general handling political affairs for Gen Prawit. This is called Thai Elites! Connections!
