BANGKOK, Dec 9 (TNA) – The Department of Special Investigation plans to investigate its official who received a land plot on Koh Nui Nok island of Krabi province.
DSI deputy spokesman Woranan Srilum said that the plan responded to a complaint from conservationists in Krabi and the House committee on consumer protection that title deeds of many land plots on islands in the southern province had been suspiciously issued and one title deed had been transferred to a DSI official.
He said the DSI ordered its division supervising natural resources and environmental cases to seek relevant information from the House committee.
Meanwhile, its human resources section was compiling the case to prepare for the investigation and the official concerned would be questioned, Pol Maj Woranan said.
If there was any irregularity on land title deed issuance, the director-general of the DSI would be asked to also order a criminal investigation, he said. (TNA)
