U.S. AMBASSADOR’S ACT SHOULD BE CONDEMNED 25 August 2006

          Dr. Hatai Chitanondh, President of Thailand Health Promotion Institute, The National Health Foundation, complained that the U.S. Ambassador was unlawful when he led tobacco and alcohol businessmen to make complaints to the Health Minister. Representative from Philip Morris accused the Health Ministry that regulations were not fairly utilized. Cigarettes were not allowed to be shown at points of sale but cigars and roll-your-own could do it. Dr. Hatai said the U.S. government had had a rule since January 2000 for U.S. Embassies in all the world not to support the tobacco business. Dr. Hatai said he would contact his friends in the U.S. to investigate this case of ambasador’s misbehavior and wrongdoing.
