Chiang Mai: Judicial officers have “no plans to move out” – Doi Sutep housing controversy heats up
Despite a ban on use of the controversial housing project on the slopes of Doi Suthep in Chiang Mai, judicial officials are not only living there but refuse to move out.
The campaigners against the ‘scar of Doi Suthep’ held a meeting today, to address the issue of officers living in the judicial housing, despite a government order that nobody should live there.
On June 15, a meeting was held to review the progress and issues of the forest restoration plan on the judicial residences area from the survey that was carried out three days earlier.
On survey day, June 12, judicial officer issued a statement declaring that only officials, academics and seven named citizens were allowed access to the area. This decision angered many people involved in the campaign who were not allowed to visit. On that day, officials said that construction will not be finishing by June 18th and will not be able to transfer the ownership of the housing to the treasury department as planned.
