Supinya Klangnarong Vs SHIN Corporation - wacc.org, October 10, 2005
...WACC condemns the $10 million (400 millions Bahts) libel suit filed by the Thai media and telecommunications giant Shin Corp owned by Thai Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra's family, against Supinya Klangnarong, a WACC scholar, journalist and freedom of speech campaigner.
Supinya had noted, in an interview published in the Thai Post, that Shin Corp profits had soared since Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra had come to power and had questioned the relationships between politics and commercial interests. Shin Corp was founded by the Prime Minister and is now owned by his family.
