The cabinet on Tuesday approved a so-called “stupidity fee” of 9.8 billion baht to the consortium contracted to build the scandal-hit Klong Dan wastewater treatment plant.
The cabinet agreed to divide the payments to the NVPSKG group from the 2016 central budget into three instalments, as suggested by the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment.
The first instalment of 40% will be paid Monday while the payments of 30% each are due on May 21 and Nov 21 next year, according to government spokesman Sansern Kaewkamnerd.
