Mor Chit development

Mor Chit development - Bangkok Post, August 17, 2004
...The site, a 63-rai plot on Phahon Yothin Road, had been envisioned as a full-blown commercial complex and transport hub linking the BTS skytrain with bus services running to the northern provinces.
But a 30-year contract awarded in 1996 to Nam Mahitirat, the chairman of Sun Estate, by then director-general Nibhat Bhukkanasut was shrouded in corruption allegations, and development on the site was halted later during the economic crisis.
...The Council of State had previously ruled that the original contract with Sun Estate was void due to the failure of the Treasury Department to comply with screening procedures under a 1992 law governing state contracts with the private sector.
Even so, the Treasury Department has yet to formally cancel the contract, due to fears of legal action by Sun Estate, leading to its continued delay.
