(From ThaiPBS) BANGKOK: The Department of Special Investigation (DSI) announced on Friday that the department has filed 16 court cases related to the procurement of GT200 scanners by governmental agencies against the Thai distributor of the UK-made devices.
The statement was issued after the Don Meuang District Court on Wednesday found the Thai distributor of the fake scanners, Avia Satcom, and its executive, Mr Sitthiwat Wattakit, guilty of fraud and sentenced him to nine years imprisonment and a fine of 18,000 baht.
DSI said in the statement that it had investigated all the complaints filed by governmental and provincial units which bought the GT200 bomb and narcotic drug scanners from Avia Satcom.
All the devices were tested and they found to be completely ineffective in detecting bombs or narcotic drugs as claimed by the distributor and its manufacturer, UK-based Global Technical, said the DSI.
