Bangkok – Thailand’s Constitution Court on Tuesday accepted a case against the ruling Democrat Party that could lead to its dissolution and the banning of its executives from politics.

The Office of the Attorney General submitted a writ against the party, accusing it of receiving 258 million baht (808,000 dollars) in illicit campaign donations from a private company in 2004.

‘Now it’s up to the Constitution Court to set the date for the trial and determine how long it takes,’ Attorney General Chulasingh Vasantasingh said.

The court gives opinions on constitutional issues but cannot overrule a final judgement of the Supreme Court.
