The Agricultural Land Reform Office (ALRO) is in the process of enforcing a verdict of the Supreme Court ordering Mr Kamphol Tansatja, owner of Suan Nongnut park in Chon Buri to leave his 586-rai estate in Pak Chong district of Nakhon Ratchasima after it was ascertained that he has no right to own the Sor Por Kor land.
ALRO secretary-general Sansern Atchutamanat disclosed that the Supreme Court, on September, upheld the lower court's verdict evicting Mr Kamphol from his 586-rai estate which is located on Sor Por Kor land that he has no right to own or occupy.
He said ALRO officials were in the process of obtaining a copy of the Supreme Court's verdict to be sent to authorities concerned to implement the eviction.
Meanwhile, Mr Thanu Meesaeng-ngern, an inspector of the Ministry of Agriculture, said during a recent inspection trip to Wang Nam Khieu district, Nakhon Ratchasima, it was found out that the owner of a resort, Krathomhin Nanthapak, had illegally occupied over 100 rai of Sor Por Land which were purchased from five farmers who have ownership rights to the land.
He said that the provincial ALRO office had decided to revoke the ownership rights of the five farmers for violating the terms of condition of Sor Por Kor land. Nevertheless, he added that the five farmers had the right to appeal against the order in 30 days.
Earlier, ALRO officials started demolishing a luxury house in Pak Chong district situated on Sor Por Kor land belonging to a police general after the Supreme Court ruled against his ownership right and ordered him evicted from the land in question, covering more than 500 rai.
