Politicians are likely to have had a hand in a kickback scandal where British engineering giant Rolls-Royce allegedly paid bribes to state-owned natural gas and oil firm PTT Plc, according to the National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC).
NACC secretary-general Sansern Poljeak said the agency is gathering facts behind the allegation that some US$11 million (388 million baht) was paid to the energy firm in return for contract awards for equipment and aftermarket products and services.
He said the kickback allegation against PTT Plc is similar to the one against Thai Airways International (THAI) in that politicians and former executives are allegedly involved in the corrupt commission payments.
