THAILAND – January 12, 2014 [Pattaya Daily News]; Mr. Karoon Trakulphadetkrai (President of Laryngectomees Association in Thailand) together with people who don’t have larynx and various associations of doctors had announced to support the Ministry of Public Health and government for an issuance of The Tobacco Products Control Act because the present law cannot handle with strategies of cigarettes companies. Mr. Karoon said that “I don’t want to see children and teenagers having to live with suffering illnesses because of smoking cigarettes as with my generation. We would like to plead to the government to be steadfast and to perform correctly for our descendants.”


Professor Woman Doctor Somsri Phao-sawat (President of National Federal Network for Non-Smoking Thai society) said that a federation together with members of 649 organizations and network of various organization, totaled 700 organizations, had together signed to support the cabinet (Council of Ministers) and National Legislative Assembly to issue this law because we regard that this law is very important and it should not be delayed for the next government to consider as the cigarettes companies had proposed. At this time, there are over 115,721 people nationwide who have signed to support the issuance of this law, as well as various organizations in Thai society who are also concerned about the future of Thai descendants. Al parties have vowed they are ready to cooperate with Thai government to prevent descendants from suffering with sickness because of smoking cigarettes, and to reduce the number of teenagers that are going to be smokers and also to help smokers to give up smoking before their health suffers. This action can help the country to reduce loss from smoking cigarettes and to return (give back) happiness for Thai people according to the Prime Minister’s policy.


Assistant Professor Dr. Lakkhana Termsirikulchai (Ex-instructor from Mahidol University) said that for the Tobacco Agriculturists Association that appear to protest against this law by claiming that 52,000 families of tobacco agriculturists will be in so much trouble although there is not any provision of law that relates with the tobacco agriculturists or tobacco sale, moreover, over a half of tobacco (that are grown in Thailand) are for export. Upon talking with the Tobacco Agriculturists Association of provinces in the northern part that put up the signs to oppose this law, then we perceive the facts that there is “a cigarettes company” that had supported a package of money for protesting against this law as well as the putting up of the signs along the side of roads in many provinces. There are tobacco agriculturists in some countries that understand the facts about this law had already taken off those signs.


Doctor Wanchart Supphajatturat (Ex-President of Doctor Association of Thailand and Ex-President of World Doctor Association) said that at this time there is the systematical attempt to subvert (abolish) The Tobacco Products Control Act which leads by Thai Tobacco Trading Association that is supported by the largest company of cigarettes in the world which is Phillip Morris company. In fact, this new bill (proposed Act) will affect very little with each retail shop which from the reference figure that is referred by Thai Tobacco Trading Association which indicated that the sale value of tobacco sale is 10% of total sale value of retail shops therefore if this new bill (proposed Act) causes the sale volume of cigarettes to be decreased for 10%, it will made the retail shops get the less profits that decrease only a little amount (very slightly). For example, if a retail shop has total profits of 100 THB, it means that 10 THB out of 100 THB profit is from selling of cigarettes therefore if this new Act causes the sale volume of retail shop to be decreased for 10% then it means that the profit of cigarette selling will be decreased from 10 THB to 9 THB.


“I would like to ask a question that if the retailers of tobacco are not affected from the new law about cigarettes as they had claimed, so why the Thai Tobacco Trading Association has to protest against this new Act and to protect whose benefits which an explicit answer is that they protest according to an order of Phillip Morris company as this company has established this association. This company has to order the Thai Tobacco Trading Association to perform the protest because it does not have enough credit (reliance / trust) to protest against this new Act.”


Doctor Wanchart said that this company has the offense commitment of being sued by Attorney-General with allegation of showing prices of importing cigarettes brand Marlboro and L&M from Philippines lower than actual prices in order to pay excise tax lower than actual tax rates since year 2003 – 2007 which made Thai government lost tax revenue of 68,000 million THB. Therefore, we would like to plead Attorney-General to rush to prosecute such case urgently so that Phillip Morris company has to legally pay excise tax back to Thailand for the amount that they had avoided.​
