The seminar was continued with two panel discussions. The first panel was led by Judges of the Supreme Court Adithep Thirawat and Nopporn Pothirangsiyakorn, and Judge Sirichai Wattanayothin, the Vice-President of the Supreme Court. Second panel was led by Praphan Subsaeng, Senior Judge of the Appeal Court and Mr. Prateep Kongsanit, Director of NAC-Trang. Both panels specifically focused on the topic of “Inspection on Properties and Debts of the Politicians and State Officials”. The seminar was concluded with an open discussion between the panel speakers and participants that consisted not only of the Supreme Court but also administrative, local and provincial judges since it is essential to have transparency on all levels of government to prevent corruption and promote democracy.
The event brought together about 100 politicians from local governments, judges and legal officials and served as a great platform to discuss such an important topic as anti-corruption measures through the inspection of assets of politicians and state officials. It was agreed that transparency of government leads to trust in government, and citizens’ trust leads to political stability, which is very relevant at the current political developments in Thailand.
