InTouch Group affirms no involvement in politics


BANGKOK, 21 Feb 2014  InTouch Group has made known publicly that the company is not involved in politics, stressing it has operated with transparency as seen in the confidence given by its shareholders before investing in the company.

The group’s spokeswoman, Wilai Kiangpradu, made the statement to counter a claim by Mr. Suthep Thaugsuban, Secretary General of the People’s Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) who led his supporters to stage protest at Shinawatra 3 Building, calling on people to boycott the products and services offered by InTouch Group.

Ms. Wilai explained that the group’s founder, former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, neither holds shares in the company, nor has an affiliation with the group any longer.

She underlined the transparency of InTouch Group, formerly known as Shin Corporation, saying that the firm and 2 other companies under its wings — Advanced Info Service Public Company Limited and Thaicom Public Company Limited — are legally registered companies that operate with good governance principles and are ready for malpractice probe at anytime.
