Compensation paid to families after tragedy

The families of three Cambodian workers killed after a six-storey condominium building collapsed at a construction site just north of Bangkok earlier this week have been paid compensation.

According to a Foreign Ministry statement, the families of the dead victims have received 6,500 baht ($200) each, while a seriously injured Cambodian received 5000 baht ($155).

It is unclear whether the Thai government or the company involved paid the compensation.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Kuy Kuong said in the statement that the Cambodian embassy was seeking further compensation after the collapse.

Five employees of the construction company have been charged with negligence resulting in death.
