Mai Khao cemetery businesses ‘gone this week’, vows Phuket official

PHUKET: The Chief of the Damrongdhama Centre (Ombudsman’s Office) Phuket office has warned that he will order businesses at the Pru Jason Lake and the nearby cemetery at Mai Khao Beach to be removed by the end of the week.

This will be the second time he has given the order, following his directive for the illegal structures occupying public land to be demolished by April 15 having been flagrantly ignored following raids in March.

Prapan Kanprasang on March 18 ordered illegal structures alongside the Pru Jason Lake to be removed within 15 days. (See story here.)

Raids on another 15 temporary shops set up inside the grounds of the nearby cemetery that same day saw him give vendors until April 15 to remove their structures. (See story here.)

“I ordered the Thalang District Chief and Chief of Mai Khao Tambon Administration Organisation (OrBorTor) to proceed with the demolitions within 15 days, but since then nothing has been done, so today I want to confirm that I will push local officials to proceed with the demolition and it must be done within this week,” Mr Prapan told The Phuket News today (May 10).

Mai Khao OrBorTor Chief Sarawut Srisakukam today said that his office was ready and willing to carry out the demolitions, but were waiting on approval from the Thalang District Office.

“My office is ready to proceed with the removal of the illegal structures, but we are waiting for Navy officials and the District Office.

“To clear the area, my office cannot proceed alone. We must have other officials present, including the military, police and officers from the District Office,” he said.

However, Thalang District Chief Wikrom Jaktee in an amazing twist this afternoon told The Phuket News that his office was powerless to act until he received confirmation from Mai Khao OrBorTor that the structures could be removed.

“If any of the structures were built in accordance with the Building Act, then I must give the occupiers at least 30 days notice to vacate the site,” he said.

“For this, I must wait for the Mai Khao OrBorTor to confirm whether or not any of these structures have been granted approval under the Building Act. I have yet to receive any confirmation from them on this,” he added.

Mr Wikrom noted that he must wait for this confirmation from Mai Khao OrBorTor regardless of whether or not the buildings were illegally built on public land.

Several sites on Layan are now filthy dumps, the former business occupants having simply chucked various debris into piles. Now that there has been rain, all the garbage is collecting water for mosquitoes to breed in.  What a disaster. When will the Cherng-Telay Or-Bor-Tor be held accountable for selling permits to operate when they had no authority to do so- and I know as I was offered one. Where's the money paid for these permits? Who got rich?

It's wonderful with what enthusiasm the thai officials in phuket destroy the basis of tourism.
It will be a pleasure to visit all th dirty beaches again. The waves and the tide bring the rubish from the sea and the thai people frim home. Really wonderful!! Very attractive for tourists!
