An army clerk is calling out the Thai Army for alleged corruption, saying he was forced to withdraw money under his name which was then falsely documented as a travel expense.

Clerk at the army’s Ordnance Material Rebuild Centre, Narongchai Intarakawi, posted photos of documents on Facebook, showing the withdraw listed as a work-related travel expense. He says there have been no trips and no receipts that prove the money was used for travel. He said the documents are “evidence of corrupt practices” and he used the hashtags #ReformtheArmy and #Thatsnotourtax.

“Those who fight corruption will be targeted and eventually dismissed or even prosecuted.”

      Totally agree…..keep pushing until justice is done.
      This country is rotten to the core.
      The brave young people are the future of the country.
      That will never go away!

    He’ll need all the “luck” he can get, unfortunately.

    Posting this on facebook in the way he did is unlikely to have any effect on those responsible, who weren’t named, but will almost certainly come back to bite him badly as he’s openly admitting fraud.

    Well intentioned, probably, but very badly thought through.

      As is your inane post.
      How do you know it will not have any effect on those responsible? This is an Army. In most Armies discipline is important, and corruption is supressed.
      He can name them and he will if they investigate.
      Another one of your posts based on your opinion and nothing else.
