BANGKOK, 2 March 2012 (NNT) – The Bangkok Bank denied its executive had posted messages deemed offensive to the monarchy, claiming it was the work of a computer hacker.
Bangkok Bank Executive Vice President Chaiyarit Anuchitworawong said following a complaint by the Bank’s President Chartsiri Sophonpanich to the Department of Special Investigation that Mr. Chartsiri’s internet profile had been hacked.
Those messages were not written and posted by the President as understood by the public. Mr. Chaiyarit further added that the hacker had changed his name 10 times. He said the Bank used its website to allow customers to take care of their financial businesses online.
He said it was unfortunate that someone with ill-intention had used it to defame the monarchy. The Bangkok Bank has already reported the crime to the police and an investigation is underway.
