Finance Ministry's 'iron lady' blows the whistle once again

- +

The Finance Ministry's fearless iron lady, deputy permanent secretary Supa Piyajitti, has rattled the secretive Commerce Ministry yet again with her latest revelation of the ultimate cost of the rice pledging scheme. 

Ms Supa told the media on Monday that the rice pledging scheme might have racked up losses totalling 400 billion baht for the 2011-12 and 2012-13 harvests.

News of her comments went viral and quickly landed at the Commerce Ministry, where Deputy Prime Minister and Commerce Minister Niwatthamrong Bunsongphaisan hastened to issue a denial.
