Sattahip, Chonburi –
A group of families and relatives of ‘Mountain B’ victims were gathering in front of the venue on Monday, September 5th, to grieve over the one-month tragic fire incident.
More than 10 families of the deceased arrived at the ‘Mountain B’ entertainment venue on Monday, carrying funeral photographs of the victims. They placed bouquets of flowers at the entrance and stood in silence for several minutes. The atmosphere was full of grief and sorrow.
Phuri Neenoi, one of the parents of the deceased, told local reporters that he feared the incident may be forgotten like the previous Santika Club fire in Bangkok and everyone may not receive fair compensation.
He said: “Therefore, I’d like to call on the families of the deceased and the injured to gather to file a joint lawsuit against the owner of ‘Mountain B’ in order for them to be prosecuted justly.”
Ratchasika Dujanutas, an incident survivor, said that she managed to get out of the venue in time. However, she is still wounded with burns on her back and both arms from the escape. She needs to do physical therapy and became unemployed. The compensation of 60,000 baht was insufficient for her medical treatment and living and incomparable with what happened to her body.
Meanwhile, Ronnarong Kaewphet, chairman of the Campaign for Social Justice, urged the venue owner to take responsibility fairly and demanded the acceleration of the investigation to the Crime Suppression Division as the local police were not able to conclude the cause of the fire yet.
The fire claimed 23 victims.
