No, the BP article states 500 million boxes. Bit of a difference..........

The Bkk Post refers to the figure '112.5 billion'. Which is what I was referring to.

But Pol Colonel Roongroj Phuthiyawat was nowhere near "the very top".

I never said he was.

You did post this, "It seems the biggest pandemic in Thailand isn't any virus, it's corruption, starting right at the very top", on a thread about corruption in the rubber gloves case.  

 

That sure looks like you were suggesting that the Pol Col referred to in the OP (who has been shunted from his position for authorising a deal that he was not in a position to sign) was near "the very top".

No, the quote in your post also had 500 packs, rather than the 500 million in the BP article. To which you stated 'but Bkk Post numbers are the same' i.e. all the numbers, not just one of the numbers. 

Clearly not.:biggrin:

Oh, you're looking for an argument.

 

Well, that isn't what I meant. I was referring to the total sum which was 12.5 billion baht. A number which is the same as the Bkk Post. But you're welcome to believe that I really thought that 500 boxes of gloves were bought for this price.

Thai/English news reporting and numbers.

A total joke everyday.

One thing easy seen from multiple articles in Thai:

500 million boxes of gloves.

112.5 billion Baht (112'500'000'000 Baht).

-> 225 Baht/box.

 

If only I knew what such a box cost at Makro :biggrin:

Asians & in particular Thais  just cannot be trusted with procurement/. Fullstop.

I suggested years ago that Thai Airways use an International Accounting Co for all purchases

Can you imagine the eye rolls when the honey pot gets sealed

A Bt112-billion deal for surgical gloves between the Public Warehouse Organisation (PWO) and a private company set up only two months ago, is being investigated for corruption.

Where there's money there's always a stench of corruption.... 

Prayut promised to stamp it out ?

The PWO board, however, cancelled the deal on Thursday saying that Roongroj had no authority to approve the deal

I'm guessing they were shocked, because the deal was fair and there was no pay off to them. 😉

The reporter on this story has obviously got his facts incorrect.

Nothing new about that.
