PHUKET: The Department of Special Investigation (DSI) is investigating an attempt to claim about 100 rai of land belonging to the Thalang Technical College, located along the road leading to Phuket International Airport.

 

DSI Deputy Chief Pol Lt-Colonel Kornwat Panprapakorn assigned Special Case Inquiry officer Pattarapol Jewnongpo and Jedtana Hemmun, Director Intelligence and Crime Information Analysis Division at the Bureau of Technology and Information Inspection Center, to investigate the attempted land grab following a request by Thalang Technical College Director Kochakorn Butsaraporn and Deputy Director Kanchana Tantharawatphan.

 

The DSI team were in Phuket to inspect the site on Monday (Sept 14).

No doubt a grubby influential person who may or may not have sought a land claim?

But as it's forestry it should not be up for sale.

How could the college own Forestry Land in the first place?

For reference and quote from original article:-

 

The Royal Forest Department granted permission to use the land – 142 Rai 1 Ngan 47 talang wah within the boundaries of the Suan Pa Bang Kanun protected forest area – to establish the Phuket Technical College through a Cabinet Resolution in 1997, Ms Kanchana explained.

The land in question today was later designated to establish Thalang Technical College, she said.

Only about 40 rai of the land granted is currently occupied by the college. The remaining 100 rai was left for future expansion, Mr Jedtana said.

Reading articles like this convinces me that Thailand's "no foreign ownership of land" is actually a humane gesture, aimed at protecting foreigners from being duped. 

 

If a Thai college gets their land grabbed, what chance does a foreigner have?
