Park land fenced off, police told

CHERNG TALAY: As the Phuket property probe continues, Cherng Talay police have been informed, in an official report, about cases of suspected encroachment on land in the Sirinat Marine National Park. Prasart Tongpong, an officer at the national park, reported the suspected encroachments to Pol Lt Col Siriwat Intrayim yesterday evening. Fifteen plots of land in Moo 6 in Cherng Talay, covering a total of 20 rai, are involved. All are fenced off and some contain structures or palm tree plantations, the report stated. So far, Col Siriwat told the Gazette, no one had come forward to claim occupancy of the land. A committee consisting of police officers and the Chief of Thalang District was set up this morning to look into the alleged encroachment.
