89 bad Phuket land titles to be cancelled – NCPO deputy chief

Adm Narong: Also discussed mafia taxi action.

PHUKET: The Commander in Chief of the Royal Thai Navy, Adm Narong Pipatanasai, who is also deputy chief of the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO), said yesterday (July 13) that 89 titles deeds for land covering some 1,200 rai and encroaching into Sirinart Marine National Park can immediately be cancelled.

Before taking a helicopter ride to look at the park from the air, Adm Narong – who was on a two-day visit to the island – met with Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation (DNP) officials, to push forward the NCPO’s agenda “to take back Sirinart National Park” from encroachers.

Samak Donnapee, the DNP’s director of National Parks, and Kittiphat Tharaphiban, head of Sirinart National Park, explained to the admiral about the many areas found to be encroaching on the park have only SorKor 1 papers, based on vague descriptions without any survey having been carried out. In some cases the plots appear to overlap.

Roughly half of the papers describe land that is in the park, while the other half describe land that is partly inside the park.

Noting that there are some 3,000 parcels of land in Phuket with SorKor 1 papers, Adm Narong said that the Land Department should supply information about these, too.

The Admiral also met with Pol Maj Gen Paween Pongsirin from Provincial Police Region 8, who is leading the crackdown on mafia taxi activities in Phuket. And also concerned officers from both sections to give the information.

Capt Petrat Tienjan, deputy director of the Naval Command Division of the Royal Thai Naval Third Fleet said that about the 300 taxi groups on the island, comprising about 4,000 taxis, will be reorganised so that drivers who are not breaking the law can make a living.

The illegal “black taxis” were told that from July 1 they must not pick up passengers, but with the approach of the high season, with greater demand for transport, they too will be reorganised so that they are legal.

Police Region 8 are collaborating with the Navy on how this all can be achieved, Capt Petrat said.

I don't like the sound of this. Compromising already.

The quickest way to get rid of illigal taxis is, just give them a licence

Yes, and all the illegal taxis were granted an amnesty earlier in the year subject to them registering for a licence. We have been round that route already. What now ?

More taxis operating equals less slice of the pie for each driver, so what happens, they put the price up, from an already overinflated and collusion set price.

Yes, but I think that was an attempt to have them join the "taxi association" and then require them to pay their dues to influentual people.

Yes, this is a new bunch of hopefuls running illegal taxis.

Every time you legalise the illegal taxis, there will be a whole new bunch of illegal taxis eager for a slice of the (ever-diminishing) pie.

The answer is to stop making illegal taxis legal. Reduce the number of legal taxis. Make all drivers take a 'The Knowledge' test.

Oh, and only grant licences to drivers who can speak an acceptable level of conversational English and have taken Foreign Culture lessons

"....89 titles deeds for land covering some 1,200 rai and encroaching into Sirinart Marine National Park can immediately be cancelled."

Yes, an action that can happen only under martial law. No due process of law, no hearing, no compensation, no appeal. While the subject deeds MAY include property that intrudes on national park lands, the deeds are still valid ownership documents unless PROVEN otherwise (ie., obtained through bribes, counterfeit approvals, etc.) and should be respected. If national park boundaries are insufficiently described (ie., lacking precise metes and bounds surveys), how can authorities expect private land deeds to be any more precise?
