The Office of Public Sector’s Anti-Corruption Commission (PACC) will publish a handbook on corruption investigation procedures in a bid to shorten the investigation process.

Director of PACC Sector 4 Police Lieutenant Colonel Wannop Somjintanakul, announced that Mahidol University, Rangsit University and other anti-corruption agencies are co-authoring the handbook.

Representatives from these organizations have also attended a meeting hosted by the PACC to discuss graft investigation details.

Mr. Sanyapong Limprasert, a law professor from Rangsit University, said the handbook is expected to set the same standards for all corruption cases and reduce the time involved in investigations.

It will also serve as a guideline for the authorities whenever they consider taking legal action against any individual suspected of corruption. The handbook will be trialed first early next year before its actual launch in May.
