Egat files 15 cases against posters of 'false info'

The Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand has filed 15 police complaints against people who posted on social media, accusing them of spreading false information with intent to damage its reputation, an Egat official said.

Pranee Tangseri, assistant chief of the power utility's legal office, said the complaints allege defamation and violation of the Computer Crime Act.  The complaints were being processed by the police.

Ms Pranee said the false information include accusations that Egat's power plants are sources of pollution which can cause sicknesses and death, and that Egat wants to build coal-fired power plants without regard for the people's health.
