Satit to Visit Koh Chang to Discuss Land Encroachment

BANGKOK, 19 January 2010 (NNT)

Minister to the Prime Minister’s Office, Satit Wonghnongtaey will pay his official visit to Koh Chang district in Phuket province to gain first hand information towards the Koh Chang land encroachment case tomorrow.

Trat Governor, Kanpetch Chungruangsri disclosed that Mr Satit will travel to Koh Chang district to make a visit and to hear the problems over the encroached state-owned land impasse in Koh Chang area at Khlong Son house Moo 3 and Hat Sai Khao village Moo 4 in Tambon Koh Chang.

On Wednesday afternoon, Mr Satit will meet the representatives of officials concerned towards the encroachment of the Koh Chang area to find solutions over this issue at the district office. In addition to this, Mr Kanpetch said that all necessary information and the guidelines in solving this impasse are prepared to be proposed to Mr Satit during his visit.


  • Thanks Ian. I saw a replay of the program and it seemed to focus on property near Salak Phet and also the Navy situation on the east side.

    If the Klong Son area was mentioned I didn’t hear it. Did the program
    imply the only disputed areas were Salak Phet and the Navy claims? No others?

    I heard a ‘part 2’ of the report will be on this Monday at the same time. Maybe it will cover all the brouhahas on the west coast?

    Or maybe not…

  • From what I gather it was about 8 local government officials who are accused of taking kickbacks in return for illegally issuing title deeds. So even if you have land with a Chanote, if it wasn’t originally obtained in the correct manner you could lose it. ( As has happened on Samui.)

  • There was an ‘investigative’ TV show last night on TPBS at 21:10 regarding false land title deeds and encroachment and God knows what else. Unfortunately, I missed it. Does anyone know if this show was a result of Khun Satit’s visit to the island?

    Also could anyone please comment on what the gist of the show was about?
