Thailand: Quarantine hotel graft probe taps 6 suspects

At least six people have been implicated in a kickback scandal involving state quarantine contracts and are being investigated by police, said the Defence Ministry.

Defence spokesman Kongcheep Tantravanich said the ministry’s preliminary probe had found evidence the accused had demanded “commission fees” from hotel operators in the eastern region so their facilities could be chosen as state quarantine centres.

Lt Gen Kongcheep said yesterday the ministry had submitted evidence to police for further investigation while confirming that a person with the initial “Phor” is one of them.
