Stirrings in Thailand.
Fraud charges are likely to be laid against Thai agencies which bought bomb and drug detectors from a discredited British firm, the National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) says.
Member Vichai Vivitasevi says a sub-committee expects to charge suspects as part of its probe into state agencies which bought bogus GT200 and Alpha 6 detectors which cost more than 1.1 billion baht.
The devices were sold to countries such as Pakistan, Lebanon and Mexico. The Thai government purchased more than 700 units of the GT200 since 2006 for the army.
The American military did not use the devices.
