The executives of both factories face charges of illegal operation, illegal possession of category three restricted items and conducting an illegal enterprise.

Chinese funded operation or just Thais importing illegally from China?

Perhaps the government might acknowledge there is a need for more recycling. If the result of operation Sword in China resulted in no imports of waste here there could have been an attempt to bring Thai recyclers into line. 

If anyone recycles illegally close them down and offer companies the opportunity to take over following the rules and laws.

Electronics has some very toxic stuff being processed, lucrative when done in the absence of environmental controls.

I guess they'll be given special permits, instead of having to setup shop in Cambodia.
