The Public Sector Anti-Corruption Commission (PACC) has found that former chief of Kaeng Krachan national park, Chaiwat Limlikhit-akson, committed malfeasance in office in connection with the forced eviction of an ethnic Karen forest community, and the burning of their houses, in Kaeng Krachan national park in Phetchaburi province in May 2011.

 

The PACC, which met today (Thursday) to consider the case, also recommended that Chaiwat be dismissed from government service, pending disciplinary and criminal investigation.

 

Chaiwat and six park officials were accused of burning about 100 houses and rice barns in Pong Luk Bang Kloy in the park.

Also buried away in the article:
"Chaiwat and some park officials were also charged, by the Department of Special Investigation, with murder, in connection with the disappearance of Karen activist Polajee “Billy” Rakchongcharoen in April 2014, after he was last seen being taken away by park officials led by Chaiwat for allegedly collecting wild honey in park, in violation of the law.
Ultimately, the public prosecutors decided to drop the murder charge
