PHUKET: The site of the under-construction resort complex building that collapsed on Sunday (Aug 11) – crushing to death three Myanmar migrant workers and injuring eight others – has been sealed off for safety while Forensic Police complete their investigation, police confirmed today (Aug 13).

It only killed three Burmese, regarded almost as lowly as we are, so don't expect a big court case and anyone going to jail because it ain't gonna happen.  Brown Envelopes will win the day !

Why would purchasers of villas or condos in other projects be liable?

I recall this thread from an owner in their other Phuket project, VIP Kata Condominiums.

It's all the same company. 

VIP are building all up and down the coast. 

Russian company with some Chinese investors for the rawai project. 

They will pay the powers and this will soon disappear.

Sure somewhere in the building contracts will be a 5,000 baht 'death at work' liability clause
