Chief Chollathit Suratwadee has ordered the local forestry department to conduct an investigation. He said the airport plans encroach on forestry land.
There will be some delay as the chief of the department – Arkhom Chaiyot – has now been transferred to Chaiya.
A new leader of the Koh Samui forestry department will take over from June 1st, reported Thai Rath.
