Mr. Sunai, 59, told journalists that he had received a telephone call from Charan Pakdithanakul, Permanent Secretary for Justice, Friday evening informing him that he would be transferred to the new agency, which he helped found, and that he would take charge of the new agency from Monday.

The Office for the Prevention and Suppression of Corruption by Government Officials is a newly established agency to focus on corruption involving government officials under civil service Level 8.

Mr. Charan said that he met earlier with Justice Minister Sompong Amornwiwat who discussed the transfer.

Justice Sunai was appointed director-general of the DSI, the nation’s top investigative agency, on November 14, 2006 by the military-installed government of then Prime Minister Gen. Surayud Chulanont. As head of DSI, he was in charge of many significant cases that involved former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinwatra and his famliy.

Pol. Col. Thawee Sodsong, now deputy secretary-general of Office of Narcotics Control Board (ONCB), will succeed Justice Sunai as acting director-general of DSI. He was formerly deputy chief of DSI before being transferred to ONCB by the Surayud government. (TNA)
