The National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) on Tuesday approved a budget of about 200 million baht for the construction of 19 police stations left uncompleted in six northeastern provinces, Pol Lt Gn Pisan Juladilok, acting chief of the Nakhon Ratchasima-based Region 3 Provincial Police Bureau, said.
Of the 19 police stations, two are in Nakhon Ratchasima, two in Yasothon, 10 in Surin, two in Buri Ram, two in Si Sa Ket and one in Chaiyaphum.
They are part of the 5.8 billion baht project approved by the Democrat-led government to build 396 new police stations all over the country, but the contractor, PCC Development and Construction, failed to complete the construction.
