CH.

Policy:

CH. Karnchang Public Company Limited Group has a commitment to comply with the anti-corruption and fraud laws in accordance with the Organic Act on Counter Corruption (No. 3) B.E. 2558 (2015), to which Section 123/5 imposing liability on persons bribing any governmental officials has been added, as follows:

“Section 123/5 Whoever gives, offers or agrees to give any item of property or any other benefits to any governmental official, foreign governmental official, or international organization official in order to induce such person to do, not to do any act, or to delay the doing of any act, which is in breach of his/her duty, shall be punished with imprisonment not exceeding five years or a fine not exceeding Baht One Hundred Thousand, or both.

In the event that the offender under paragraph one is a person related to a legal entity and commits such offence for the benefit of such legal entity, without such legal entity’s appropriate internal control measures to prevent the commission of the offence, such legal entity shall be liable under this Section and shall be punished with a fine from one times but not exceeding two times of the damages incurred or the benefits gained.

A person related to the legal entity under paragraph two shall include an employee, agent, affiliated company, or any other person acting for or on behalf of the legal entity, whether or not such person has the authority or duty to do such act.”
