PHUKET: Bangkok MP Sira Jenjaka today (Aug 19) challenged Phuket officials and police as to why no progress has been made in the investigation of The Peaks Residences condo project at Kata Noi, which stands accused of being built on protected forest land.

 

Late last week Mr Sira, an MP with the military-aligned Palang Pracharath Party, went public with claims that he had received death threats over the Phuket condo project. 

 

Speaking at Provincial Hall today, Mr Sira explained that no progress has been made in the investigation into the project.

Palang Pracharat apologizes for conduct of its Bangkok MP Sira Jenjakha

Palang Pracharat party deputy spokesman Thanakorn Wangboonchana has apologised to the public over the conduct of one of the party’s MPs, who has been heavily criticized on social media for allegedly attempting to intimidate and reprimand a senior police officer in Phuket province for failing to provide him with a police escort.

 

Defending Bangkok MP Sira Jenjakha, Thanathorn said today (Monday) that Mr. Sira is a hard-working man who is devoted to working for the people, but he might be a bit hot-tempered, leading to the misunderstanding in Phuket.

 

He assured the public that the issue is settled after Mr. Sira and the police officer reached a mutual understanding. Mr. Sira had a heated argument with deputy superintendent of Karon district police over the latter’s failure to provide a police escort for the MP and his colleagues. They were on a field inspection trip in Phuket to investigate a land encroachment case, allegedly by a real estate developer, in Tambon Karon to build a condominium.

from the article:

A video clip of the incident, which shows Mr. Sira being bossy to the police officer, went viral on social media, prompting widespread criticism of the MP.

 

and that's the reason for the lukewarm sincere "apology for a misunderstanding"

Good old 'misunderstandings'. I get the feeling that this guy has been involved with the project, got his fingers burned or cut out and is now suffering from sour grapes.  Why else would a Bangkok MP be sticking his nose into Phuket issues (sort of like some Thaigeezers!). He certainly comes across as extremely arrogant and 'do you know who I am' sort of chap.

 

Interesting that the cop he had a go at was already at the complex- far more to this than meets the eye.

You think ....  Seems a high ranking policeman is part owner. Lets see if this land grab story develops.

I WAS in cynic mode!  Is anyone surprised by this (that another cop is involved, not that I was being cynical)? 🤠
