As more piles of illegally imported trash draw fresh police action, environmentalists believe it was a junta move to rewrite the rules two years ago that opened the door to the surge of foreign trash.
Environmental concerns are peaking following raids on nearly 20 illegal e-waste plants this month, including a plant shut down Tuesday in southeast metro Bangkok. Now attention has turned to a 2016 junta order some say fueled the explosion of imported trash. The order, passed by the junta leader’s absolute power, allowed such factories to be built legally anywhere, regardless of existing zoning. KL – EP
