The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has asked a state planning body to review its approval of an environmental impact study for the controversial Chevron port project.
The NHRC issued the request after holding a forum in Tha Sala district to hear the opinions of local residents, fishermen and authorities on Tuesday.
Residents, including fishermen, have opposed the planned construction of Chevron's port in tambon Klai of Tha Sala district, saying it would damage their livelihoods.
