via Bangkok Post, 03 August 2020: Thailand’s Environment Minister apologises to Phrae residents for the demolishment of the Bombay Burmah building, a 127-year-old heritage building that was destroyed in June.
Environment Minister Varawut Silpa-archa on Sunday pledged to have the Bombay Burmah building rebuilt in six months after the century-old wooden house was knocked down by officials during a mishap earlier in June.
“I am deeply [sorry] for the incident, but offering words is not enough,” Mr Varawut said. “It is time to take action to restore the building and, above all, the people’s spiritual well-being.”
