Thailand introduces new anti-corruption court

Bangkok – Thailand is to open a specialised corruption court after Prime Minister Prayauth Chan-ocha promised to eradicate corruption in the country within 20 years.

Thailand’s first ever corruption court will open on Monday and initially try 70 cases.

With a dedicated court, the government hopes that the reach of corruption cases will expand into the private sector and to lower levels of government.

Also, analysts believe that the new court may make it possible for such cases to be finalised more quickly than in regular courts.
