.BANGKOK – Deputy government spokesman Maj Gen Sansern Kaewkumnerd has reported that the government hopes that a number of new departments under the Criminal Court will effectively help rid Thailand of wrong doers and miscreants.
Spokesman Maj Gen Sansern Kaewkumnerd said that the government is pleased to learn that the Criminal Court has set up new departments to deal with cases of human-trafficking, drug-related crimes and corruption as well as unscrupulous activities of state officials.
These departments have been officially opened since June 13 due to the continued rise in these types of cases. They will be working independently, said the spokesman.
According to Maj Gen Sansern, these departments will help accelerate the proceedings against all related cases, while their introduction shows how much all three branches of Thailand’s government, including the executive branch, the legislative branch and the judicial branch, are related.
He added that these departments also reflect Thailand’s recognition of the importance of the fight against human-trafficking, narcotics and corruption. – NNT
