The paper purports to show links between a group of consumer advocates, ENDS Cigarette Smoke Thailand (ECST), and Philip Morris Thailand Ltd (PMTL), who it is alleged worked together to oppose the ban on e-cigarettes and heated tobacco products in Thailand. The paper also purports to show that Thai tobacco control organisations were successful in countering tobacco industry efforts to overturn the ban. These claims are not supported by the accompanying data and analysis.

 

ECST (run by AS, joint-author of this review) is a Facebook page with contributions from harm reduction advocates in Thailand and which has campaigned against the ban on e-cigarettes in Thailand.
