The National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) plans this week to discuss the scope of an investigation into the alleged bribes paid to 26 former Thai cabinet ministers and executives of Thai Airways International (THAI) in the Rolls-Royce bribery scandal.

NACC member Sathapon Laothong, in charge of preparing the investigation, said Sunday that the three NACC members and the NACC secretary-general will discuss the probe framework this week with the sub-committee tasked with finding facts in the alleged bribe payments.

The framework will address issues such as what further evidence will have to be obtained before the NACC can begin summoning the 26 suspects for questioning regarding their alleged roles in the scandal, said Pol Gen Sathapon.
