PHUKET: Construction of the luxury residence at Krathing Cape, overlooking Nai Harn Bay on Phuket’s southwest coast, has been ordered to stop following an inspection yesterday (Feb 12) that deemed the site to be on protected forest land.

 

The order was handed down after an inspection by officers from the Department of Special Investigation (DSI), the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (MNRE) and the Royal Forest Department.

 

Leading the teams were Pol Lt Col Montree Bunyayothin, Director of the DSI’s Bureau of Natural Resources and Environmental Crime, and former Sirinath National Park Chief Cheewapab Cheewatham, who now serves as the Director of the Royal Forest Department’s Forest Protection and Fire Control Bureau.
