Ombudsman tells court 3G auction breached charter

- +

The Office of the Ombudsman yesterday told the Administrative Court that the auction of 2.1GHz 3G spectrum slots was in breach of the charter. 

Chalermsak Chantaratim, the office's secretary-general, gave the statement to the court which yesterday held an urgent inquiry about the Oct 16 auction.
