Layan beachfront squatters given yet another reprieve

This time, the occupiers have until tomorrow, or else face having an arrest warrant issued against them, Mr MaAnn told The Phuket News today (July 29).

At last report, Mr MaAnn had given those still refusing to vacate the plots they are still illegally occupying until July 23 to remove their chattels and other belongings due to a legal loophole that allowed the occupants to challenge a local eviction order ‒ despite the Supreme Court already declaring all claims to the land by a host of illegal occupants as not valid.

The objections came after the illegal occupiers were given seven days’ final notice on June 21.

Mr MaAnn even gave them a final grace period until Monday (July 19).

As of today, the deadline is yet again “tomorrow”, Mr MaAnn said.

The land in question in total covers 178 rai along three kilometres of unspoilt beachfront, altogether estimated to be worth more than B10 billion.

Asked whether the plots had been vacated, Mr MaAnn told The Phuket News, “At this stage, we already sent a notice to the two plot owners who want to vacate by themselves that they need to vacate all of the plots within July 30, otherwise, we will sue them for acting against the notice of the Phuket office of the Legal Execution Department (LED) and file a request for arrest warrant.”

Asked why the Cherng Talay OrBorTor did not request an arrest warrant from the Phuket Provincial Court last Friday, as previously promised, Mr MaAnn said, “On Friday, we went to check and saw that some of their plots have been vacated, but some still remain on the land. We have told them If they do not move out all the plot within July 30, we will file a request for an arrest warrant.”

“We still give them a chance to vacate their plots [sic] by themselves. We do not rush them up, as they are local people,” Mr MaAnn concluded.

Number of clearing orders are really laughable.  Now to be cleared on Friday July 30 If not, on Monday request for arrest warrant. Well, not 'tomorrow', and not after the weekend the land will be cleared. Next week we will read another fantasy from mr MaAnn. This is a real typical Phuket scandal. Were are the already ordered clearing machinery. Who pays them?

Thai Tomorrow-tomorrow-tomorrow. Hehehe.  Promises of village chief MaAnn are not worth the paper written on. .." We do not rush them as they are local people".  Just read:: "we do not rush them because they are our village friends". Probably mr MaAann should be investigated or he took years of kick offs from his local friends to be protection umbrella. This affair is a real Ph...

Look back to my comment of last week- no surprise. Some people in Thailand really are 'unusually rich'. 'Not me, not my fault, bigger boys did it'.

Such a load of crap. This guy and his beach buddies ALL need to go. And get serious about the "three kms of unspoilt beachfront". That whole stretch has been pilfered and abused under the OBT's watch for decades, filthy and trash strewn with leftover trash pits from previous occupiers that don't give 1 s#!^ about anything other than making free baht. Only need to pay dirty Orbort...
