NACC expects 'milestone year' in fight against graft

National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) chairman Panthep Klanarongran yesterday stressed that every Thai citizen's determination and cooperation were essential in fighting graft and creating a corruption-free society.

Panthep said prevention was as important as prosecution of corruption cases, as law enforcement alone was not enough to solve the problem.
