There is no place here for bad apples. Since Mr Sakda exposed the corrupt politicians, the House committee on laws, justice and human rights has taken up the case. Earlier, Deputy Finance Minister Santi Promphat, who chairs the House committee overseeing budget scrutiny, insisted the House sub-committees have no power to revise budget allocations already approved. When Mr Sakda spoke up, society gave him overwhelming support. The Sira panel should be expanded to probe other cases of blatant political wrongdoing.
