Justice always comes late. But when it came last Thursday -- in one of the Klong Dan corruption cases -- it was indeed welcome because, at least, it has proven that corruption does not pay.
Three former officials of the Pollution Control Department (PCD), namely Pakit Kiravanich, the former director-general of the department, his deputy Sirithan Pairoj-Boriboon, and Yuwaree Inna, an official in charge of the Klong Dan waste water treatment project, were sentenced to 20 years imprisonment by the Criminal Court on Thursday.
