Thai Civilian Deminer Association (TDA) by Mr. Amornchai Sirisai went to landmine clearance site at border area of Surin province on 9 May 2012 to give GFS’ donated items to field team. On that day, NPA’s Programme Manager Mr. Aksel Steen-Nilson and Maj. Sampop and his team from Humanitarian Mine Action Unit 3 (HMAU 3) also went to visit field operation, taking with them Khun Bussaba Sivasomboon from Bangkok Post Newspaper who collected all relevant information in field regarding NPA-TDA landmine clearance method for article that she would make published in Bangkok post soon.

Landmine clearance method used by NPA-TDA project will first gather information about boundary of minefield. Most favorable key informants would be landmine victim who know very well where landmine should burry. And so some sectors in suspected area might be released after interview as they are not really contaminated with landmine. The left sectors, technical check with metal detector will be employed. It is still possible that some sectors could be released, and so the last remaining sector would be real minefield that requires full clearance. With this method, landmine clearance is more cost-effective, and is about three times as fast as traditional landmine clearance.

Photo: Mr. Jamroon Paengpit, landmine victim, is posting for photo just about 5 meters from where he stepped on landmine 22 years ago. He remembers very well when he was 21 year old, he came here to collect forest products, and stepped on landmine that cut his right leg ever since. As seen in the photo, 2 meters back from him (marked with red sheet with white skull) is still buried with one anti-personnel landmine PMN. This area is believed contaminated with many landmines that NPA-TDA project will continues to clear them out for the safety of local people.
