TOT executives are doubtful that the state agency can press charges against Advanced Info Service (AIS) regarding controversial amendments to concession deals and telecom excise tax.
Doubt lingers even though TOT has demanded damages from AIS to the tune of more than Bt74 billion.
A TOT executive, who asked not to be named, said the agency had taken the telecom excise claim to an arbitration panel, leading some executives to believe it could not press the same charge in court.
A CAT Telecom executive, also requesting anonymity, said that unlike TOT, CAT had not notified its concession holders that it would bring the telecom excise case to court if they failed to pay the damages. This was because CAT had already brought the claim to the arbitration panel.
