Horrified by news of radiation threats from quake-hit nuclear power plants in Japan, Thai residents of eight provinces that have been studied as possible sites for such plants have asked the prime minister to review the plans.

The coordinator of the Thai People Don’t Want Nuclear Power Plants Network, Sodsai Sangsok, told a news conference yesterday that the Japanese lesson indicated Thailand should not have nuclear plants.

She said studies had been made of possible sites for nuclear power stations in Prachuap Khiri Khan, Chumphon, Surat Thani, Trat, Nakhon Sawan, Ubon Ratchathani, Nakhon Si Thammarat, Kalasin and Khon Kaen provinces. The Energy Ministry initially eyed Ubon Ratchathani.
