Court suggests BMTA liable for pollution

- +

A Supreme Administrative Court judge on Tuesday recommended that a 2006 lower court decision holding the Bangkok Mass Transit Authority (BMTA) liable for creating air pollution be upheld. 

The judge delivered his opinion statement on the civil lawsuit, brought against the city's bus operator BMTA and the Department of Pollution Control by the Foundation Against Air Pollution and for Protection of the Environment (FAAPPE), to the five-member chamber of the Supreme Administrative Court. 

The chamber will take the judge’s opinion into consideration and will later make a ruling on the case which can be in favour of or against it.
