Central Administrative Court

Date of Release: 
Dec 4 2015

Representatives of people from seven provinces yesterday filed a complaint with the Central Administrative Court in Bangkok calling on the Natural Resources and Environment Ministry to revoke its announcement waiving environment impact assessments (EIA) for waste-fired power plants.

Members of the Ecological Alert and Recovery-Thailand (EARTH) led some 100 villagers from the provinces of Pathum Thani, Chon Buri, Nakhon Nayok, Prachin Buri, Samut Prakan, Chachoengsao and Saraburi to file the complaint. These seven provinces have the potential to become sites of the power plants.
