“The report stated that the Announcement of the National Executive Council No. 281 required foreign companies to be qualified and approved by the Cabinet before conducting business in Thailand, which Hopewell was not,” said Jirut.
“Therefore, the SRT board agreed that SRT and Ministry of Transport will file a civil case against Hopewell in the Civil Court,” he said. “Furthermore, SRT will file an appeal for an injunction by the Supreme Administrative Court to temporarily suspend the court order for SRT to pay the compensation to Hopewell, which was originally scheduled on this Saturday (October 19).”
