Thailand's Central Administrative Court Friday rejected a petition filed by outgoing national police chief Pol General Patcharawat Wongsuwan against the country's National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC).

Pol General Patcharawat earlier asked the court to call off the NACC's ruling to seek criminal and disciplinary action against him, concerning the police crackdown on the People's Alliance for Democracy (PAD) protesters on Oct. 7, 2008, Thai language news agency Matichon Online reported.

The court, however, dismissed Pol General Patcharawat's petition on ground that the NACC's ruling have no direct legal effect on his right or duty.

According to the NACC, Pol General Patcharawat is found guilty of criminal offences under Article 157 of the Criminal Code and serious breach of discipline for not giving an order to end police action after two of the PAD protesters were killed in the police crackdown in the morning of Oct. 7 last year.

Nearly 500 people were wounded in the clash of that day.
