The Thai Justice Minister will personally give compensation worth 110,000 baht to the families of the deceased victims of the Mountain B fire.
The Mountain B fire that as of now killed 16 people including Mr. Sittichai Ouilert who passed in hospital yesterday has made its way into the Thai Ministry of Justice’s meeting at 10 AM yesterday, August 10th.
Presiding over the meeting, Mr. Somsak Thepsuthin expressed his condolences and promised to compensate every victim of the fire to the full extent of the Workmen’s Compensation Act, starting with the departed victims first.
“I will personally deliver compensation to the families of the 16 departed victims on August 19th,” Mr. Somsak said during the meeting, “as the Ministry of Justice never ignores the citizens’ adversity.”
For the injured victims, Mr. Somsak said it was a different case because each patient suffered different injuries and thus had unequal expenses; however, the minister said he would expedite the procedures to compensate the injured victims as soon as they made a full recovery.
According to Mr. Somsak, the families of the departed victims will be given 110,000 baht in total, including 50,000 baht for the casualty, 20,000 for funeral arrangements, and 40,000 for the loss of a breadwinner. Meanwhile, the injured victims will be given no more than 40,000 baht for medical expenses, 20,000 for physical and mental rehabilitation, and no more than 50,000 baht or 336 baht per day for each day they are unable to work for a year.
This is on top of compensation being given by the nightclub owner, Chonburi officials, Sattahip officials, and various other groups and foundations notes TPN media.
