Lower court to hear cases on revoked Shin Corp licenses

10 Oct 2006

(Thai Press Reports via NewsEdge) In the interest of "national security and (of) consumers," a lower court has been ordered to hear cases on the revoked licenses of Shin Corp firms AIS, Shin Sat and iTV.

The Supreme Administrative Court released an appeal decision on October 5 ordering its lower court to review an administrative case that could see Shin Corp. losing its licenses for communication satellites, mobile phone services and television broadcasting.

"The judicial review against Shin Corp. is warranted because the licenses in question involved communication services which can impact on the public, national security and consumers," the senior court said in its verdict.

The ruling follows a decision by the Central Administrative Court in March not to hear the case because complainant Sastra Toaon, a law lecturer, had no contractual link to the Shin takeover.
