Thailand’s Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation has apologized to the people of the northern province of Phrae for the recent dismantling of a colonial-style building in Chetawan forest, but claimed the demolition was part of a restoration process.

 

Natural Resources and Environment Minister Woravuth Silpa-archa said he had received a clarification from the national parks chief, Mr. Tunya Netithammakul, saying that the 127y-old Bombay Burma building was dismantled to be rebuilt with the same wooden materials, except the concrete foundation, which had eroded beyond repair.

 

Mr. Tunya also insisted that, in order to renovate the building, it had to be dismantled first, and assured that every wooden plank and its position had been recorded, so that they can be re-assembled.

George Orwell would have loved that doublespeak.
