The graft-buster who never stops.  One truth about state agencies is there are so many abuses of power and acts of dishonesty that graft watchdogs generally can't keep up. This sentiment was echoed by the new secretary-general of the [Thai] Public Sector Anti-Corruption Commission (PACC) when he was asked to reflect on the PACC’s decade-long war on rogue behavior”
