BANGKOK, July 14 (TNA) – The Government Pharmaceutical Organization filed a defamation complaint against academic Loy Chunpongtong and Dr Boon Vanasin, chairman of Thonburi Healthcare Group PCL, for the allegation that it was making profit from its import of the COVID-19 vaccine made by Moderna.
GPO filed its complaint with the Phaya Thai police station on July 13. It said Mr Loy and Dr Boon falsely accused it of intending to maximize profit from acquiring the Moderna vaccine on behalf of the government for inoculation by private hospitals.
The false accusation caused misunderstanding about GPO and damaged it, the government organization said. (TNA)
