Conciliatory case of building contractor and property developer


On 18 April 2008 at Prachuap Khirikhan Provincial Court’s conciliation room, Chief Conciliator Gp.Capt. Amnuay Noreewong and Mr. Tuck Dechapanya member the conciliation committee have attended the conciliating meeting of the plaintiff Mr. S. L. who is a building contractor and the defendant Mr. H.H who is property developer. The plaintiff came with a lawyer and the defendant has sent three lawyers but was absent himself.

Gp.Capt. Amnuay Noreewong verified suing documents from the plaintiff on the case that the defendant didn’t pay Bt. 8 million for building construction. The plaintiff said that he has waited for the payment for several months. The construction equipments he bought from retailers were affected it. He has no choice but to ask for compensation, however, he prefers this case to be conciliated because he wanted to terminate the case with an agreement and suing in the court he will do as a last resort. He was given an appointment by the court to give testimony on behalf of the plaintiff on April 21, 2008. 

The Chief conciliator had notified the defendant (via the three lawyers) to postpone the conciliation until June 2, 2008 and all concerning parties were requested to attend the third meeting. If there is no conciliation, the plaintiff must sue this case in the court. Gp.Capt. Amnuay Noreewong also added that the defendant should realize that the conciliation was a good opportunity for both parties to reach an agreement. In fact this is the civil case, but the plaintiff had changed this case into fraudulent case, so that it would become a criminal case immediately. Therefore, the defendant should consider this issue and attend the meeting in order to reach an agreement because the plaintiff was willing to conciliate and terminate the case.
