Govt adviser calls facemask accusation ‘libel’


Malika Boonmeetrakool Mahasook, an adviser to the Minister of Commerce, has denied being involved in the illegal export of protective facemasks.

The accusation came from Atchariya Ruangrattanapong, chairman of the Help Crime Victims Club.
Malika held a press conference on Wednesday (March 18) to insist she was not associated with any facemask exports. She plans to bring two charges of libel against Atchariya.
In making his allegation, Atchariya mentioned no names, only referring to “a female adviser” to the minister.
“I am not involved with the mask exports or any business to do with facemasks,” Malika said. “In fact, I don’t have any association with those people at all. I only do my duty as a civil servant.”
