Investigation of Corruption at Dutch Embassy in Bangkok

A special team of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is investigating the Dutch Embassy in Bangkok for corruption and abuse of power. Diplomatic sources report on misbehavior by high level officials at the embassy including the Ambassador himself. The investigation was meant to be secret but was leaked by the Deputy Ambassador Hams van Santen. Earlier this year a Thai accountant working at the embassy embezzled at least 350,000 thousand Euro and has been condemned by the Thai authorities to spend 28 years in jail.
