OAG sues for party dissolution. Democrats under fire over political donation

The Office of the Attorney-General has submitted a formal recommendation to the Constitution Court calling for the dissolution of the Democrat Party over an alleged illegal 258 million baht donation.

The prosecutors also recommended that the court ban from politics for five years all executives from the party who knew about and turned a blind eye to the receipt of the alleged illegal donations.

Observers believe that not all of the present Democrat executives will be banned from politics. Some of the executives will be spared as they did not hold executive positions when the alleged offence took place.

Staff from the Election Commission yesterday used three pickup trucks to transport 54 boxes containing investigation documents related to the case against the Democrat Party to the court.
