Attorney Generals Office will not represent defendants in lottery caseJuly 29th, 2008 - 1:39 pm ICT by Amrit Rashmisrisethi
Deputy Spokesman of the Attorney General’s Office Kemchai Chutiwong (เข็มชัย ชุติวงศ์) stated that after the Supreme Court agreed to take on the 2 and 3 digit lottery case, executives of the office met to decided whether attorney’s within the office would represent defendants in the case. The meeting concluded that since the case was filed by the Assets Examination Commission in the name of the government, the Attorney General’s Office, which is also a government agency would have a conflict of interest to represent the cases defendants. The office has thus decided to not allow its personnel to take part in the case.
