Greens' trial delayed; Thai officials in Los Angeles

It's an AP story.

The Bangkok Post has a story on today's front page. Officials from Thailand's National Anti-Corruption Commission have been sent to Los Angeles to observe the trial of producer couple Gerald and Patricia Green.

"The US court ruling in this case will influence the NACC's decision in this case as well," Methee Krongkaew, an NACC commissioner and chairman of the subcommittee, tells the Post.

What case? This case:

The Department of Special Investigation looked into the case after receiving a request from the US Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The DSI forwarded the case to the NACC in March last year.

Piyawat Kingket, head of DSI's Special Criminal Case Office, said DSI officers had questioned about 20 officials involved with the film festival, in addition to reviewing the FBI's evidence.

But former TAT governor Juthamas Siriwan and her daughter were not summoned for questioning, he said.

The DSI found grounds of wrongdoing, said Pol Col Piyawat, but he refused to give details.

With the delay, the NACC guys are going to be hanging around LA for a bit.
