BANGKOK, 25 August 2011 (NNT) – Thai Democrat Songkhla MP Mr. Wirat Kalayasiri has submitted a petition to Senate speaker General Theeradej Meepian to disqualify Foreign Minister Surapong Torwijakchaikul, saying that he has violated the Constitution.
According to Mr. Wirat, the Foreign Minister has violated the Constitution on purpose and it was unethical for him to ask the Japanese Ambassador to Thailand for a favor to get a visa entry for Mr. Thaksin Shinawatra.
Mr. Wirat cited the violation of paragraph 2 of the Constitution Section 176. He added that the Foreign Minister had also committed a legal offence for revealing the policy statement before the policy debate began.
The Democrat MP has presented the evidence, which derived from the media, and the list of Democrat MP names who are supportive of his move to the Senate Speaker and the Office of The National Anti-Corruption Commission for consideration.
