The police investigation has gone nowhere, he said, and representations to the Justice Ministry have failed to bear fruit.

Well that figures... the only fruit they're interested is what falls from the money tree.

Unless there is evidence of foul play, "police" don't normally get involved in work related accidents. Insurance companies are the investigators. 

The lawsuit should wake them up.

Unless the poor guy had significant hospital bills it is difficult to justify a claim for 19m baht for someone who tows aircraft. His salary can't be very much. Even at 30k a month that is only 360k a year 20 years salary would be 7.2 million. 19 million just seems too much to claim  

Probably taking their cue from the USA where everyone sues for $100 million and then accepts five.

Extremely sad, but who was at fault? Was his death due to his own negligence or due to something else?

BTW, I believe Nok filed for bankruptcy protection the other day....following the lead of Thai Air....

The news articles mentioned that Nok-Scoot has liquidated the company, that's a different company from Nok Air.

Occupational health and safety administration from the US.

 

Thailand has an over-arching piece of legislation called the OSHE Act 2011.

This OP article pertains to Nok Air. It's also Nok Air that filed for bankruptcy reorganization this week, apart from the demise of Nok Scoot.

some US federal health and safety authority. the problem is, that the common americans haven't so much idea form the rest of the world, they are really thinking, their s##t is called everywhere the same. In Thailand must properly it should be the responcability of the Department of Labour Protection and Welfare.
Questionable is, why he has stopped with his tractor in front of the aircraft which he has pulled. From the video I would say, tractor operator mistake.

Yeah, I don't see his family receiving anything from this. Maybe one day, things will change, but that may not be for a while.

It should be 190 million baht at least and an even bigger fine for the company.
