Sacked Government Pharmaceutical Organisation (GPO) chief Witit Artavatkun plans to lodge a complaint today with the Administrative Court over his dismissal.
He says he was unlawfully sacked and he is demanding compensation.
A source from Dr Witit's legal team said the four defendants named in the complaint are the GPO board, GPO board chairman Pipat Yingseree; Public Health Minister Pradit Sinthawanarong; and the cabinet.
