TOBACCO TAX CASE
The Office of the Attorney-General (OAG) has decided to indict 12 executives of Philip Morris (Thailand) for allegedly under-declaring the value of its products to evade taxes.
Attorney-General Athapol Yaisawang on Wednesday said former office chief Julasingh Vasantasingh had agreed to indict 12 out of 14 suspects, including four foreigners. Mr Julasingh signed the indictments before he retired on Oct 1.
