The Central Intellectual Property and International Trade Court Friday refused to issue an injunction to suspend payments to the Austrian supplier embroiled in a fire-vehicle scandal. The sixth instalment is due on Monday.
The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration asked the court to issue an injunction to allow it to suspend the sixth payment pending a judicial review whether the contract with the Austrian supplier, Steyr Daimler Puch could be annulled.
The court reasoned that the evidence produced by the BMA during the emergency hearing Thursday was not strong enough for establishing a proof of foul play that warranted the suspension of the remaining payments. (The Nation)
