Group rallies for booze free factories

The Nation

Factory workers yesterday urged Industry Minister Wannarat Channukul to issue legislation banning the sale and consumption of alcohol in factories round the clock because they said alcoholism was affecting workers' health and performance at work.

Jadet Chaowilai, director of Women and Men Progressive Movement Foundation, led a team of workers to submit a request for the ban as well as encourage the minister to make it an ISO standard requirement to keep factories free of alcohol. Citing a study conducted by the foundation last year, Jadet said all of the 604 factory workers questioned said they knew about the adverse impacts of drinking, especially in terms of domestic violence. In addition, it was found that 24.4 per cent of the workers spent more than Bt1,000 on alcoholic drinks and that many could not go to work the next day. More than 60 per cent of the workers said they could buy alcoholic beverages at any time.

Wannarat said that he agreed with the group's suggestions and that they were in line with the ministry's policy to "green" factories that are environmentallyfriendly, use green energy and promote workers' health and welfare.

Testimony in Soi Ruamrudee case wraps

The Nation

The Central Administrative Court is set to deliver a verdict in a landmark case in which Pathum Wan district office is accused of falsely certifying over a period of more than 15 years that Bangkok's Soi Ruamrudee is more than 10 metres wide to facilitate the illegal construction of several skyscrapers.

In the final court hearing in the case yesterday, Chalermphong Klabdee, a lawyer representing the complainants, said in his closing statement that the soi, which runs through an area of prime real estate, was less than 10 metres wide, making many buildings along it illegal.

The coaccused, a construction contractor that is building two tall structures in the area, said the firm was led to believe by Pathum Wan district office documents that the soi was more than 10 metres wide, which would make construction of the buildings lawful.

The 24 complainants are residents living on the soi and in nearby areas. The first two accused - a former Pathum Wan district office chief and a former Bangkok governor did not show up for the hearing.

Officials from several government agencies and the court's judges jointly surveyed the soi's width and found that it was less than 10 metres wide, as stated by the complainants, who want construction of the two buildings scrapped, and no further permits granted for new buildings.

Chalermphong said earlier that officials at the district office or any other government agency would faced criminal prosecution for abuse of power if evidence could be produced proving illegal acts.
