FABULOUS 103FM HEADLINE NEWS (1 MAY ’23) FROM THAILAND & PATTAYA


– ‘Cyanide Sarah’ claims up to 20 lives
Thailand’s Cyanide Sarah, the 36 yr old alleged mass killer Sararat or AM remains in the headlines this morning as it’s now predicted that she poisoned up to 20 people with cyanide that’s he always carried with her, AND that she carried the antidote too, just in case she poisoned herself. The former wife of a policeman remains firmly behind bars as police interview the only victim to survive, and discover that most were poisoned in under a year. From her bank records it’s clear that she received loans from, now departed, friends and that all were subsequently given cyanide or other equally strong poisons. It’s YET to be established just HOW she accessed a supply of the highly regulated drug.

– New ‘proof of funds’ regulation for tour groups
As hotels bemoan the LACK of Chinese chartered tourist groups here, and reports indicate that mainly private travelers are arriving here, so as of the 8th of this month a new visa control goes into effect for tour groups. Previously, Chinese groups could apply for a single visa, valid for all the groups THAT comes to an end and each will have to apply individually, as do those from every other country in the world. As part of their application they have to show access to a minimum of 50K baht, much to the dismay of what had become an almost 0 baht business for many, seeing profits from travels remain in China and each applicant will have to submit details of their hotel bookings here. This as travel agencies THERE are finding that THEIR own applications are being rejected as they failed to renew their travel agency cards with the Chinese state during and after covid.

– Air force plane crash in Thailand
In Nakhon Pathom Saturday, air force investigators were inspecting the site of a plane crash where a small aircraft hit the ground seeing the instructor passed away at the scene and his student barely survived during landing. As is standard procedure, all training flights have been put on hold until the results of the investigation are completed.

– Heavy storm warning for Thailand
The heavy storm warning for most of the country continues through today and tomorrow as small boats and indeed fishing vessels are encouraged to remain on the shorelines, especially in the south. And heavy waves with strong undercurrents are predicted for most of the bay of Thailand.

– HM King of Thailand to attend Prince Charles’ Coronation
HM the King of Thailand WONT be here to celebrate coronation day this week on Thursday as he and HM the queen will travel to England for the coronation of King Charles in London. Their majesties are invited, along with other global monarchs, to the celebrations in Westminster Abbey.

– Expat scam plot thickens
That enquiry into so-called Financial advisers, all British, who retail, in many cases, pump and dump schemes purporting to be safe investments to other British expats; Well, the weekend has seen our email bulging with other expats who have lost their all, in some cases. It’s now evident that the wily scammers, who infiltrate all forms of society and associations to ply their wares, have been active in Pattaya, Phuket, Bkk and Hua Hin. The trail hasn’t gone cold and several teams are investigating. The advice is out to all with cash. DON’T be fooled. These hawkers are NOT legally working in Thailand and your investment is NOT covered, in most cases, by any regulator.

– Self-proclaimed ‘Mother of the Universe’ arrested in Pattaya for pushing ‘godly’ medicines
Meanwhile at home, four Chinese and Taiwanese have been held following an investigation into a cult style scam operating from Jomtien. A 49 year old Chinese woman who claimed to be the mother of the universe, and her cronies, were selling illegal herbal medicine and promising to communicate with Gods of various types. The region does seem to attract all types but, according to immigration officials, this lot topped the list for weird.

– Immigration crackdown on ID checks in Pattaya
More entertainment venues have been randomly raided by police and investigation teams over the weekend, all checking for valid passports and visas. The reminder is still to carry copies of all your documents to avoid an uncomfortable stay in police cells. On your phone or a laminated copy, including visa stamps. It’s pretty simple.

– National holiday today in Thailand
With today, Monday, a national holiday, we are told that offices such as immigration remain OPEN but it’s worth noting that Thursday and Friday are also national holidays. This weekend has seen the city extremely busy, routes out of the region are expected to see congestion today as domestic tourists leave. Good for business here for sure, and retailers have welcomed all, as the low season fast approaches for those coming from abroad.
