Al Jazeera: Thailand introduces new anti-corruption court

My interview clip and opinion on Al Jazeera



Now the ruling generals are trying to show that they are serious in their fight against corruption by fundamentally reforming the legal process.

But some analysts say that resources should not only be used to bring more cases to court but also to break the culture of corruption.


"Enforcing the law is not enough," Kan Yuenyong, from the Siam Intelligence Unit, told Al Jazeera.


"We need to improve the condition of the people first and get them to understand that corruption is not good for the country as a whole."


A lot of people agree that the success of the new court will not be known for a few years.

But before that, there will be indications of how the people of this nation feel about government officials - and whether they trust them more, or less.
