PHUKET: Luxury Phuket resorts Triasara and Sripanwa are facing legal action over illegally acquired land following the National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) and the Department of Special Investigation (DSI) announcing the conclusion of their investigations earlier this week.

 

Niwatchai Kasemmongkol, Deputy Secretary-General of Office of the National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC), explained that Three Dolphins Co Ltd had used the well-known “Flying SorKor 1” process to submit a SorKor 1 land use document for another plot of land to claim more than 40 rai adjacent to the land the company legitimately owns on Phuket’s west coast.

 

At a live press conference broadcast online, Mr Niwatchai and fellow NACC officers and expert land investigators specifically named Weerawat Janpen, who served as a Phuket Vice Governor at the time, as involved in approving the land transfer. Weerawat served as a Phket Vice Governor in 2011.

Why do they start investigations of these land grabs, AFTER 

houses, resorts  have been built , even several years later,

same as in the forests ,they find the logs After they have

been felled.

….because someone didn’t get their brown envelope!  There’s nothing more dangerous than a palm not greased!

Could well be that...

-before the logs were felled, they were not illegal, but alive trees;

-and before houses were build on a 35 degree slope, they were not illegal buildings, because there were none...:whistling:

The rule of thumb is if its foreign owned its illegal if its owned by a general, cabinet minister or the army its a misunderstanding ???? 

If you reread the full article you'll see you're completely wrong here.

In my experience the people talking about brown envelopes are the ones who have nothing to do with corruption in any form. But it sounds good to mentioned brown envelopes.

One of my biggest hates of Thailand is the different land ownership documents. All land should have the same titles, the government should not own any land, and there should be rules as what you cam build and where.

Corruption? Kickbacks? Whatever do you mean? 29 officials, including a Vice Governor! Are they really going to address the elephant in the room in Thailand now? Or did someone not get their cut and blow the whistle on their buddies?

Yes, if facts don't matter you can read it that way.

I would suggest NACC do all checks in all Thailand on every piece of land. 

Moving from one province to another and check on all.

I bet, they will find more of those situations.

Once i was exploring Phuket by car and came upon a broken down place. Well partial as foundations were still there.

Also a beach where restaurants and selling shops were broken down, however again leaving lots of waste.

DOnt understand why that it is accepted.

What ever happened with a very big living tower in BK? Red it very long time ago in Thaivisa forum, it was illegal.

However never red it was broken down.
