September 16, 2013 | Posted in: News

On September 6, 31 PLCN (no women), three Forestry Administration (FA) officers, and one soldier participated in a forest patrol in the Cham Bok Koang area. They came upon two loggers who had a tractor and a chainsaw. The patrol informed the FA, which sent more officials to the area. The loggers were brought to the Sandan FA office, but released that same day. When PLCN members protested, they were told by the FA if they continued to complain, they should not ask for assistance in the future.
