MP Pareena denies all charges in land encroachment case


Palang Pracharath MP Pareena Kraikupt faces four charges over the alleged encroachment of reserved forest land in Ratchaburi province.

Pareena went to the Environmental Crime Suppression Division to acknowledge the charges under the Forest Act, the National Reserved Forests Act and the Groundwater Act.
She reportedly denied all charges and expressed no qualms since she was highly confident in her lawyer, Tossapon Pengsom, who has gathered evidence, debunking 30 points of the charges.
However, Tossapon was concerned that witnesses might be threatened during the process. He might therefore consult with the police in 30 days.
He also has to obtain more than 100 documents detailing ownership of the land that were issued under laws both currently effective and ineffective to inspect the timeline of Pareena’s land possession.
