Thai military bagging top jobs

Thailand's military leaders are appointing their own to top spots.

    Thai military leaders had pledged to end corruption

    Thailand's military leaders used the perceived conflicts of interest between Thaksin Shinawatra, the former prime minister, and business interests, as a pretext for the coup.
     
    Activists say that the recent appointments could undermine the military's claims that it is intent on fighting corruption.
     
    Surayud Chulanont, the military-installed prime minister, has brushed aside the criticism, saying the appointments followed normal and fair business procedures.
