It might be the reason he decided to turn against ST following the refusal of a third 'bail-out' for his debt-ridden business efforts.

Good observation, but I don't think it is against Thai law for Thais to have money outside Thailand.

Suthep owing 323 million baht. Ha, ha, ha, the funniest thing I've heard in a long time. It just shows what an honest person he truly is.

Khun Suthep is 323 million indebted because he did not join Pheu Thai & company.

Politics is an expensive business anywhere. People need money to run for office, their own or from supporters. It is a major reason for corruption.

Nothing a term in his unelected, undemocratic and (claimed) anti corruption council would not solve !!!! Yes very interesting and may explain some of the 'all or nothing' tactics

Suthep's accounts have been frozen. I wonder, if Nattawut's and Jatuporn's accounts will now be frozen, now that videos have been produced to show the Red Shirts burning down Centralworld. I'm sure the DSI will soon be onto this.

I wonder how much scrutiny there is over cash donations during the marches. Who is auditing that?
Discussion 14 : 04/02/2014 at 01:17 PM
No wonder he opening accepts money from the crowd. Keep the handouts coming ladies and gents.
Discussion 15 : 04/02/2014 at 01:00 PM
And how about all the money in oversea accounts? Oh, I forgot, Thais are not supposed to have money anywhere outside of Thailand. And as we all know all Thais, especially our politicians, follow every law... 555

It looks like you have to be a millionaire in order to become a member of parliament in Thailand. Are there any common people in the parliament? Employees, farmers, pensioners? Only this would really represent the population of Thailand. As long as only the rich sit in the parliament, there is no democracy. Maybe this imparity is the root cause of all political issues. People with now knowledge about common men’s life representing the population.
