The Supreme Administrative Court has agreed to rule on a case involving the Xayaburi Dam, which is now being constructed in Laos.
The case will have no influence on whether the construction can go ahead but will affect the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand’s (Egat) contract to buy electricity from the Bt120billion dam.
“The decision to rule on the case is related to the fact that relevant authorities have failed to adequately listen to the opinions of people and to comply with the Procedures for Notication, Prior Consultation and Agreement (PNPCA),” the court’s judge Suchat Mongkollertlop said.
