Following his farewell ceremony at the Ministry of Finance today (August 5), the Former Deputy Minister of Finance, Mr. Viroon Tejapaibul (วิรุฬ เตชะไพบูลย์), affirms that he does not resent his dismissal from his post due to his ownership of stocks which exceed the 5 percent limit for government officials.

Mr. Viroon said he accepts the verdict of the court and understands that in Thai politics, officials must be prepared for both promotion, and dismissal. The former deputy minister thanked his colleagues and subordinates for their company, and said that he will maintain his fond memories of having once served the nation and the public.

When queried as to whether his time spent in the political spotlight has jaded him, Mr. Viroon affirms that a good man need fear no obstacles. The former deputy minister asked that laws be more explicitly written in the future.
