Two more celebrities turned themselves in to the police to give testimonies over their roles in product reviews for Magic Skin cosmetics and food supplements.
The two actors, Phutthichai Kasetsin or DJ Put, and Kan Kantathavorn told deputy national police chief Pol Gen Weerachai Songmetta and police investigators that they were contacted to review the products and personally, they believed the products were reliable because they saw Food and Drug Administration registration numbers on the labels.
Both claimed that many celebrities had also reviewed the products and the advertisements of the products were widely seen on the internet and billboards.
After testing the products they found no side effects, so they thought the products were safe and met the standard.
But they said they later heard on the news media that the food supplements and skin care products under the Magic Skin were substandard and were illegal.
Pol Gen Weerachai said the police will summon 22 other celebrities and net idols to give information about their product review for the Magic Skin brand from June 14-16.
Among them are actor Patchara Peach Chirathivat, actress Warattaya Jui Nilkuha, singer Tom Room 39, singer Baitoey, and Chalita Suansane, Miss Universe Thailand 2016.
He said this group will be the last group to be summoned in the case.
He said so far, 59 celebrities were summoned by the police and 27 persons have already met the police to testify.
The police have not yet pressed any charges against them as they are gathering evidence to wrap up the case, but would do later after all investigation is finished, he added.
