(Photo: Education Minister Newsline Facebook)The Move Forward Party (MFP) called for the prime minister to reconsider the recent appointment of Education Minister Pol Gen Permpoon Chidchob due to allegations he helped Vorayuth "Boss" Yoovidhya, the scion of the family behind the Red Bull empire, escape prosecution. One of them is Pol Gen Permpoon, who was an assistant to the then-national police chief Pol Gen Somyot Poompunmuang. Instead of stopping to help the victim, Mr Vorayuth, then in his early 20s, drove off, dragging the victim's body 200 metres from the accident scene. He will be expected to consider the suitability of Pol Gen Permpoon for the education portfolio.
