The secretary to Public Health Minister Pradit Sintawanarong on Thursday asked the Department of Special Investigation to launch probes into alleged corruption in a vaccine plant construction project worth 1.4 billion baht initiated during the Democrat-led government. 

Kamol Bandaipetch submitted a letter of request to DSI chief Tarit Pengdith demanding an investigation into the Government Pharmaceutical Organisation's (GPO) vaccine production plant in Saraburi’s Kaeng Khoi district.
