Surachit Chirawait becomes the 14th person who has returned Thai Green Globe Award in protest of PTT, Thailand giant oil firm. The return of the award is not only related to PTT subsidiary PTTCG oil spill at Sament Island, but relates to PTT in general. About 50 tonnes of crude oil leaked last week, devastating a beach. Surachit said while the Green Globe Award Foundation is independent from PTT, PTT has been a major supporter of the award throughout the years. Surachit said PTT has the interest to serve itself and not society at large. He says PTT was started to serve Thailand, but has ended up serving its own interest. The Green Globe Award Foundation is headed by former Thai PM, Anund Panyarachun, who lead the winning selection. (Source)
