Pattaya & Thailand LATEST NEWS from Fabulous 103fm (24 March 2023)

Embassy worker jailed for hidden toilet spy cams
A 39 year old Thai man, previously employed in the Australian embassy in the capital has been sentenced to 2 yrs jail after being found guilty of setting up spy cameras in the embassy’s ladies powder rooms.  He pleaded guilty yesterday as the court heard that staff discovered his perversion when a memory card was found by one staff member after it fell out of one of his recording cameras in late 2021, which resulted in his dismissal.

Soft drink competition hackers net 60k prizes 
Two hackers, in their 20s, have been arrested and charged with breaking into a network and downloading the winning numbers for a competition operated by a soft drinks company, which saw prizes given based on figures printed inside bottle caps. 60 THOUSAND prizes were claimed by the duo, operating from their room.

Locals demand health checkup plans following exposure to radioactive chemicals 
Residents in Prachinburi who live close to the power plant where a cylinder containing radioactive materials was stolen have demanded a 5 year health check plan for all,  and those demands are likely tot be complicated by neighbours to the recycling plants in Kabinburi and Rayong areas close to there that also handled the cylinder, which was sold for scrap.

Chinese invest over 29 billion in Thai property
Despite a lack of travel last year for Chinese, the majority of condos sold here in Thailand were bought by Chinese nationals, according to official reports.  In fact, their purchases exceeded the total of those bought by all other nationals.  29  BILLION baht was the total spend. Second on the score sheet were Russians who spent.. 2.7 billion.   And with travel restrictions now lifted, it’s expected that their spending THIS year will increase for sure.

Tourist’s bungy cord snaps mid-air in Pattaya
With two bungy jumps here in the area, it’s been made clear by authorities that the jump where a Hong Kong man fell after the rope broke is based out at Pong municipality far to the east of the city and nothing to do with the professionally maintained jump which is off Thepprasit Road in the city.  If proper maintenance is carried out and records kept, those bungee cords should simply never break as they have multiltiple ply lines within them. Pattaya bungy jump off Thepprasit road, however, has a 100% safety record since opening back in 1989 and has seen over half a million customers leave safely.   They, along with jumps in Chiang mai and Phuket, choose to adhere to the rigorous safety standard set in New Zealand where the toughest of laws apply. This ensures safety is a priority.  Pattaya Bungy Jump has jumped over 500,000 people with a 100% safety record. Pattaya bungy jump is actually a training centre for jump masters and work around the globe helping others set up safely.  THERE, with records kept to date, ropes are checked every 50 jumps, and any sign of more than 5% wear in the braids seese the ropes replaced.  Thailand has no fixed safety regulations for bungies which makes it all too easy to let things slide BUT as a result of their diligence, their customers and those in Chiang Mai and Phuket are assured of total safety.

Crazed tourist goes on Pattaya rampage 
A western tourist was arrested on Pattaya third road early morning yesterday after going on a rampage.  Seems he was certainly under the influence of SOMETHING.  Without a shirt, flexing his bodybuilder muscles and acting like a wild man, he ran around in a restaurant, screaming and yelling until it took several police officers to control him and remove him to their own accommodation.

Thai heritage exhibition in Pattaya
The Pattaya Cultural Council has announced a planned Thai heritage exhibition on Pattaya Beach April 1st and second which will honour HRH Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn and her lifetime of work dedicated to the preservation of Thai culture. Performances, displays and more are all promised and it’s expected that many visitors will attend, both foreign and domestic.

TB Global awareness day 
Today is global TB awareness day and as such it’s recommended that anyone living here google TB as it is a disease that continues to be prevalent here. With many expats and family members having suffered from it. TB cases around SE Asia really haven’t dropped much in the past decade.  And awareness can save lives for sure.
