Phuket officials start marking off public walkway for sea gypsies

PHUKET: Vice Governor Dr Prajiad Aksornthammakul has inspected the Rawai beachfront and begun having a three-metre wide section of land marked off so that Rawai sea gypsies will have access to their boats following the violent clash with workers from Baron World Trade Co Ltd last week.

Military security personnel were called in after workers blocked off the sea gypsies’ access to a sacred site, leading to violent clashes with the villagers. (See story here.)

The dispute forced Phuket Governor Chamroen Tipayapongtada to call high-level meeting on Tuesday (Feb 2), at which a provincial committee headed by Dr Prajiad was tasked with creating a the public pathway as part of the attempts to resolve the impasse. (See story here.)

Gov Chamroen gave Dr Prajiad seven days to have the public pathway installed, for which he ordered that a NorSorLor land document be issued to affirm that the pathway is on public land.

“Meanwhile, we have asked the developer Baron World Trade Co Ltd to give the villagers access to the area without being accused of trespassing until the survey is completed. In the future, whether the villagers will use the new route or not is up to them,” he said.

A shameful and premature happening to see how Phuket high authorities not respect the thai laws.
When a case is under Court, authorities suppose not to interfere, that is a obstruction of the thai law and disrespect for the thai Court.
This smiling V/Governor seems not to understand juridical processes. He should not disturb the juridical process of this matter, but he doesn't see to underst...

Let me get this right, the developer has NO legal, or moral, right, to the land, but here we see the vice (an appropriate title as in - immoral or wicked behaviour.) governor helping support an illegal claim. Have these people no morals.
