Use S44 'wisely on megaprojects'

Anti-corruption advocates and academics have called on the government to be cautious in using sweeping powers under Section 44 of the interim constitution to fast-track megaprojects.

They have urged the government to ensure the projects being pushed under the powers are free from corruption.

Pramon Sutivong, chairman of the Anti-Corruption Organisation of Thailand, yesterday told the Bangkok Post he does not yet know the details of which projects will be subject to the special law.
