Kalasin couple fight back against legal charges

A couple convicted of encroaching on forest reserves called on the Crime Suppression Division yesterday to take action against people who have landed them in legal problems.

Udom Sirisorn, 52, and his wife Daeng insisted that they had done nothing wrong by going into a forest in Kalasin to collect wild mushrooms.

Their legal trouble began after investigators at the Yang Talat Police Station in Kalasin decided that the duo illegally felled trees covering 72 rai of forestland in 2010.

Though the couple have already been given a 15-year jail term, they have been granted temporary freedom pending fresh trials.
