- +

The House sub-committee on corruption prevention and suppression on Wednesday said it had found irregularities in the spending of a 500 million baht PR budget to improve the image of vocational schools plagued by student brawling. 

The committee members met to continue their inquiry into the alleged irregularities in a scheme initiated in early 2011 during the Abhisit Vejjajiva administration.  

Three contractors  hired under the scheme were asked to send  representatives to testify before the sub-committee, but only those from Blue Fairy Co showed up, Prompong Nopparit, the committee chairman, said at the meeting.
