Health secretary 'prepared to fight probe into alleged offences'

Dr Narong Sahametapat, the permanent secretary at the Public Health Ministry, is preparing to fight an order that he undergo a probe for alleged grave disciplinary offences.

"He is going to petition the Merit System Protection Commission," Nakhon Si Thammarat public-health chief Utumporn Kambhu Na Ayudthaya said Monday.

The order against Narong came from caretaker Health Minister Pradit Sintavanarong last week, in the wake of Narong's clear stance against the caretaker government.
