A doctor, who has been accused of sexual harassment by 11 factory workers sent to him for their annual medical check-up, holds an executive position in a private hospital in Nakhon Ratchasima province, a police source revealed on Thursday.

The doctor, whose name is being withheld pending the investigation, sent his lawyer on Thursday to arrange an appointment for him to meet police on Sunday, as he was still preoccupied with other errands at the moment, said the source at the Sung Noen Police Station.

The summons were issued on Wednesday for the doctor to hear a criminal charge following a complaint filed on Tuesday evening by 11 women who work at Siam Fukoku. 

The women alleged that he had needlessly touched their breasts during routine check-ups on November 17. They said they had gone alone in turn into the examination room and the doctor unzipped their uniform tops and felt their breasts. The check-up is not supposed to include an examination for signs of breast cancer. The factory employees said they asked among co-workers and learned that the doctor had only touched the breasts of “good-looking” women.
