Police are proceeding with legal action against four celebrities whose pictures with alcoholic beverages were posted and shared on social media.

The Muang Nonthaburi Police Station is determining whether the celebrities posted the images themselves or if others had done so. 

Pol General Weerachai Songmetta, a national police chief adviser, presided over a meeting to discuss alcohol control measures at the Royal Thai Police headquarters in Bangkok on Thursday.

The names of four accused celebrities are DJ Davide Dorico, Sirin “Cris” Howang, Pongsak “Aof” Rattanaphong and Hansa “Nuclear” Jungwattanawong.

Police will also summon executives from the company linked to the alcohol brand for questioning.

The posts violated the Alcoholic Beverage Control Act, which bans people from advertising alcoholic drinks and from showing the names and logos of alcoholic drinks to promote them. Offenders face up to one year in prison, a Bt500,000 fine or both.
