Whistle-blower on rice corruption says press misquoted her, said “Risk” not “Actual”

A whistle blower, Supa, in the rice scheme corruption, now says the press wrongly quoted her, and what she said was that the rice scheme was in danger of massive corruption. I said “Risk” not “Actual” said Supa. Earlier, responding to statements that her rice subsidy is hit by massive corruptionYingluck said today, quote: “Show me corruption, not just talk & I will prosecute all.” The statement comes after deputy permanent secretary for finance Supa Piyajitti told the Senate Tuesday, that the Yingluck rice subsidy is hit by massive corruption. Most neutral observer says, with such massive corruption, as indicated by many statements, the evidence of corruption, must be massive and easy to prove. The well known to hate Yingluck news outfit, Bangkok Post reports, that this is the first time Ms Supa has admitted there is evidence of corruption in every step of the process. While making those assertions, Supa gave no supporting facts, but is relying on her credibility to prove her point. Supa earlier, gave out information on the rice scheme loss to the press, breaking protocol of how government information is handled,which greatly damaged Yingluck’s government. The information of loss, in the many billions, was leaked to the press by Supa, and cause Moodys credit rating agency, to make a credit warning on Thailand. Perhaps realizing, that the Thai press and Supa has credibility problems, Moodys made a correction, and said Thailand’s credit rating was not under threat and Thai finances are relatively robust. “I want Supa, to get into the details of her allegations, of where the actual corruptions problems are, because with factual evidence, I will prosecute all involved that she points out” said Yingluck. Supa told TPBS, a local TV station, a day after she went to the Senate, that there is no wide-spread corruption, just danger of wide-spread corruption. That is her latest statement and she may reverse her position again.
