4th army region to sue a Phuket hotel’s management of defamation

Written by Thailand News

The Fourth Army Region has threatened to sue the management of a hotel on Phuket’s Patong beach and a person who posted a video clip in the social media purportedly implying that a group of army officers went to the hotel to extort money from the management.

Deputy commander of the 25th infantry battalion of the 2nd regiment, claimed that he and a few army officers went to the hotel on Patong beach in Kathu district to investigate a complaint filed to him by a former employee of the hotel that he was unfairly dismissed by the management after he took 5-day business leave.

Lt-Col Surasak said that he found out that his meeting with the management to discuss the former employee’s complaint was secretly video-taped and clip of the tape was posted on the social media accusing him of extorting money from the hotel.

He, however, admitted that he carried a side arm with him because he was on duty to investigate a complaint at the hotel and the complainant alleged that some members of the management were influential figures.

It was reported that Lt-Gen Piyawat Narkvanich, commander of the Fourth Army Region, had already received the written clarification from Lt-Col Surasak and had instructed the judge-advocate officers to take legal action against the management as the unfounded allegation in the video clip had tarnished the reputation of the Fourth Army Region.
