Map Ta Phut residents petition against delayed compensation payment

Pattaya Daily News

Recommended Posts

RAYONG, July 1 - Residents near Thailand's Map Ta Phut Industrial Estate on Sunday submitted a complaint letter to Rayong governor calling for speeding up of compensation payments from an explosion at a petrochemical factory in May.

Rayong deputy governor Warawut Pin-ngern received the letter as some one hundred local residents of Map Ta Phut municipality gathered at the provincial government complex in the eastern province of Rayong.

The residents urged for a change of the committee in charge of considering compensation payment to those affected by the explosion at a unit of Bangkok Synthetics Co (BST) as they have not yet received any compensation since the accident occurred on May 5.

The deputy governor said he would forward the letter to the governor to find ways to help them.

The crowd then dispersed as they were satisfied with the deputy governor’s response.

Twelve people were killed in the BST explosion on May 5 while residents living around the Map Ta Phut Industrial Estate were ordered to evacuate to safer areas, as a chemical leak from the plant was confirmed.
