A top human rights lawyer has criticised the Pollution Control Department (PCD) for lengthy delays in the clean-up of Kanchanaburi’s lead-contaminated Klity Creek.
Speaking after a meeting with the PCD, Lawyers Council of Thailand representative Surapong Kongchantuk said the department must speed up restoration of the creek.
The PCD called a meeting of its Klity Creek working committee on Friday, the first since the Supreme Administration Court ordered the department in January last year to restore the creek.
