An environmental campaigner Monday led 48 Bangkok residents to file a complaint at the Central Administrative Court against three city executives who gave the go-ahead to a private building project they claim would destroy the city’s green zone.

Srisuwan Janya, president of the Stop Global Warming Association, joined residents of Soi Lang Suan and Mahat Lek Luang 2 who are angry about the plan for a 26-floor condominium in an area of trees that is home to wildlife.

The court complaint is against the Pathumwan District Office director, the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) Public Works Department director and BMA governor respectively for alleged negligence in performing their lawful duties with regard to the Mahadlek Residences construction project. 

The group is seeking a temporary injunction to halt the project.
