Disabled lottery vendors calls for examination of on-line lottery projectJuly 11th, 2008 - 3:02 pm ICT by Amrit Rashmisrisethi
A group of disabled lottery vendors requests the Senate’s corruption inspection committee to examine the allocation of lottery quotas by the government and protests against the on-line lottery project.
The disabled lottery vendors, the April 6th Group, and representatives of 42 organizations travel to submit a letter to Senator Rosana Tositrakul (รสนา โตสิตระกูล), the committee chairperson, requesting her to inspect the government’s on-line lottery project. They say the project will affect disabled people who sell lotteries.
Ms Rosana says she will call on the committee to review the request and decide whether the government’s on-line lottery project is unlawful. The senator admits that she disagrees with on-line lotteries as they will have long-term negative effects on children and other people.
The group also gives flowers to Ms Rosana as moral support for her to keep working for the society.
