The anti-corruption reform committee has created a framework for building their recommendations, dividing it into four areas: corruption prevention and monitoring, precautionary measures, corruption suppression, and anti-corruption organisations.

The second area, precautionary measures, would emphasise state office precautions, as well as asset scrutiny and reporting of all civil servants to their heads. The committee is working out in detail how to properly report assets and changes of assets and values, said committee chair Panthep Klanarongran. Democrat Party deputy leader Nipit Intarasombat said he agreed with the idea of all state officials reporting their assets. This, he said, could help prevent collusion between them and politicians, a relatively common practice in the country’s corruption cycle.

Nipit said the asset reporting is not as difficult as some may fear, as people should well know which assets belong to them or their families. If they fail to report them without any ill intention, they would not be subject to any punishment, he said.

The fourth area, anti-corruption organisations, would put an emphasis on creating independent and integrated watchdogs.
