Executives of OA Transport Co and its five affiliates have claimed they are victims of the zero-dollar tour scandal themselves, after being implicated in the alleged scam.
Though the Criminal Court late last month acquitted them of charges, including collusion to reap benefits from tourists, due to insufficient evidence, prosecutors are preparing to appeal against the ruling. According to the company's estimate, damages to the family's businesses should reach several million baht.
"We can't say when we'll resume our businesses," Saithip Rojrungrangsi, an heir and executive of the embattled OA Transport, said Tuesday. She said she and other executives are struggling to deal with a possible new round of their legal battle.
