The Central Administrative Court Thursday accepted for judicial review a petition filed by a farmer against the Commerce Ministry.
Lamyai Srithong on January 30 filed her petition with the court, asking for damages from the ministry for its failure to pay money for the rice she sold under the government’s pricepledging scheme.
She had obtained a receipt of deposit for the rice pledged with the scheme but later the Bank for Agriculture and Agricultural Cooperatives (BAAC) refused to cash her receipt of deposit.
In the petition, codefendants are the Finance Ministry, the Budget Bureau, the National Economic and Social Development Board, and the BAAC.
The court gave the defendants 30 days to submit their statements and their lists of witnesses and documents.
