    You're all Wrong. Phuket is a model Province when it comes to corruption! LOL

    Official corruption: PACC names Phuket ‘model province’
    Phuket Gazette – Tuesday, March 13, 2012 9:41:00 PM

    PHUKET: The ongoing probe into official corruption by government officials in allowing land title deeds to be issued on state land should shore up investor confidence, the Phuket governor says.

    Phuket Governor Tri Augkaradacha told the state-run MCOT news agency that the probe by the Public Sector Anti-Corruption Commission (PACC) began in secrecy six or seven months ago in Phuket, which has been named as a “model province” by the agency.

    PACC members have also identified Phang Nga as another province where corrupt officials were known to collude with investors to have Chanote land title deeds issued on state forest land, especially in prime hillside areas with potential for resort development.

    Gov Tri urged Land Department officials to scrutinize all applications for Chanote title deeds filed by holders of the SorKor 1 papers, especially on hillside plots in areas such as Kamala and Patong.

    The number of legitimate SorKor 1 papers with upgrade potential that remain is relatively small, he said. Those wanting to upgrade to Chanote titles based on them have to apply through the court system since the application period to do so directly though the Land Department has expired, he said.

    Gov Tri added that the PACC’s work should increase investor confidence and help avoid problems “down the road”, such as when buyers find their title deeds revoked for having been improperly issued.

    In such cases, buyers who find their title deeds have been revoked can seek justice and compensation through the court system against the party that sold them the deed, he said.

    My 2000 post and I am more confused now over Thailand than I was when I joined this forum! Does anyone understand from he above if Phuket is deemed a model of corruption or a model of non corruption?

    On the upside the Black Taxi goons at the airport have been warned to quit; the bus station is to open; and I have heard that pigs will fly at about the same time as the above. Plus the life guards are not going to let tourists drown. Apparently Thais are on their own!

    A heartwarming endorsement from the Governor of Phuket, no less. Phuket is indeed a model of corruption.

    I wonder if they believe what they say. They must think that the rest of the world does. Let us see if they do anything about the 1000 phony chalot land titles that have been sold by his administration.

    Pretty much common sense when buying land, if it looks like state Forrest
    it probably is no matter what people tell you

    ^ I think they all knew this. Build it and then plead that you did not know. Shame Phuket will become another has been resort town soon if control is not taken in many areas.
