Environmental issues continue to be in the forefront in Thailand thus a huge spike in environmental litigation. Problems with pollution have grown and so have the number of court cases related to breaches in environmental law. Recently a new Civil Court division was opened specifically to handle cases involving the environment.
The creation of this new division was necessary due to the large number of cases brought forth by those affected by pollution from industrial operations – including air pollution, chemical pollution, hazardous waste pollution and others. All environmental cases filed with the Civil Court will be tried by this new court. It is designed to give all Thais recourse to the courts without requiring the expenditure of large amounts of funds.
