PHUKET: Officers from the Royal Forest Department have confirmed that local Phuket officials were involved in allowing a private individual to encroach on protected forest land near Bang Wad reservoir to make way for a road over the hills in Kathu and to clear areas of the protected forest to create plantations.

 

Suphachai Suksai, chief of the Encroachment Prevention and Suppression Region 4 office under the Royal Forest Department, inspected the site with a team of officers for the second day yesterday (Jan 19).

 

Mr Suphachai said that if the encroachment exceeded 100 rai, the case would be handed over to the Department of Special Investigation (DSI) for further action.

And as usual nobody will be properly punished but merely sidelined away from further takings.  Until proper punishement is handed out with long Jail sentences etc then Public Officials here will continue to steal forever.

They are always officials, either directly or indirectly.... time to put some of these officials away for a period of time to think about what they're supposed to be doing.

I'm sure there is an other corrupted official ready to measure the desired outcome.

Singapore eliminated corruption in one generation.  And people say public caning is barbaric.

What's the betting it's less than 100 rai?

Yes. It will be found to be only 99 rai, with 1 rai of carpet suitable for the investigation to be swept under
