Pharmacist accused of supplying narcotics makers

The Nation February 25, 2012 1:00 am
A senior pharmacist at an Udon Thani hospital has been disciplined and is subject to a criminal investigation for allegedly embezzling the profits from the sale of a large amount of cold medicine containing a precursor chemical used to make amphetamines.

The unnamed official is accused of forging reports that 65,000 tablets of the pseudoephedrinebased medicine, contained in 130 bottles, had been delivered to another hospital, when in fact he had sold them and kept the proceeds, said Dr Phichart Dolchalermyutthana, director of the provincial hospital and the official's superior.

He has been transferred pending a disciplinary investigation, and will also be subject to asset seizure if police find that he knowingly sold tablets to drug dealers, Dr Phichart said.

The pharmacist faces five to 20 years' imprisonment and/or a fine of Bt100,000 to Bt400,000 if convicted.

I think it's called "prejudging" -- or prejudice.

And of course, the prejudiced one thinks the law isn't strict enough and that he should be able to determine the sentence and punishment of someone who hasn't even been to court and had a trial.

Nothing ever surprises me anymore. :lol: :lol: :lol:

This a downside of free health care. Everyone assumes it is there right to help themselves to whatever they can. No one sees the actual cost. There is a certain amount of trust assumed to not question fellow doctors as to why they need all the medicine they are requesting. This is the tip of a large iceberg. I doubt the other abusers will change their ways.

Here is the latest in the story. From the BP
At least 30 state and private hospitals and clinics are suspected to be involved in smuggling cold pills containing pseudoephedrine, which is used in the production of methamphetamine narcotics.


Meanwhile, Udon Thani Hospital director Pichart Dolchalermyutthana yesterday rejected media reports that more than 37 million pseudoephedrine-based medicine pills had disappeared from his hospital. He admitted pills had gone missing over the past three years but said the total was much less at 4,868,964.
