DEPUTY Prime Minister and Defense Minister Prawit Wongsuwan explained today (Sept. 10, 2018) that he has already returned the 25 luxury watches as they do not belong to him after Pheu Thai Party made a move on this issue, Sanook.com reported.
Pheu Thai’s legal adviser Ruengkrai Leekijwattana suggested that Gen Prawit should submit all 25 luxury watches to the National Anti-Corruption Commission to check the brands, models and serial numbers.
Upon being questioned about Mr Sahachai Chirasermsin, or Sia Cho, a fugitive in a case involving the use of a fake wooden import stamp who is also linked to smuggling petrol into southern provinces, being spotted in southern Pattanii province, Gen Prawit said he had come to surrender and was currently being questioned by the authorities.
