The GT200 bomb detectors, which are used in the far South, do work and they have detected explosives many times, Defence Minister Sukumpol Suwanatat said on Thursday.
ACM Sukumpol said this after Department of Special Investigation (DSI) director general Tarit Pengdit said on Wednesday that the GT200 and Alpha 6 bomb detectors were procured at excessive prices and the devices might not work.
He said the Defence Ministry will not intervene in the DSI's request for the 13 government agencies that bought the devices to look into the procurements.
