Court orders water projects hearings

- +

The Central Administrative Court on Thursday ordered the government to hold public hearings before it starts on the main parts of the 350-billion-baht water management and flood infrastructure plan. 

The court, however, did not order the cancellation of the whole plan as requested in a petition filed by Srisuwan Janya, chairman of the Stop Global Warming Association, and 45 residents of Bangkok, Pathum Thani and Ayutthaya provinces.

Mr Srisuwan's suit asked the court to order the Water and Flood Management Committee (WFMC) to cancel all projects until a public hearing is held.
