Thailand & Pattaya HEADLINE NEWS (13 October 2022) from Fabulous 103fm

Today is a national holiday in Thailand, celebrating the memory of the Late King HM Rama 9.  The beginning of a series of days adding up to a 5-day break for most people,  today in BKK their majesties will preside over the unveiling of a new statue of the late King in a brand new city park in the Dusit district.  The 280 rai park has been painted with forestatin and is intended to bring the countryside and peace to the city, offering Bangkokians a chance to relax in the city forest.  Government offices including immigration are expected to be reopening TUESDAY, and for next week you can be sure of long queues, so best to avoid them for at least a week.

It’s been proven that numerous calls from those in fear of their lives during the ma$$acre in the North of Thailand DID call the police, BUT with phone records proving that the calls went through, those callers were told that there weren’t enough police around and that they were waiting on a command unit. This, to bring down just ONE man.

Sadly, it seems there is more money in teaching than you might imagine, as a faculty head and another senior employee at Burapha university have been, according to Thai media, charged with embezzlement of money intended for further education projects. 47 projects are believed to have been affected. Fake bills for training staff and lecturers are said to have netted the duo a small fortune.

 SHAME ON YOU EMIRATE AIRLINES.  Flyers with Emirates are complaining that baggage is occasionally damaged beyond re-use due to poor handling between here and their own country.  That’s normally covered by airlines who ask for photographic evidence and the cost of replacement,  but EMIRATES is excusing itself from giving customer care in this matter by rejecting claims as claimants DON’T have the original invoice from when they bought the baggage.  With respect.. who on earth keeps receipts for suitcase purchases.  That seems to be their latest ‘Get out of paying’ card.  Flyers might be wiser to choose a more flyer-friendly airline, there are plenty out there, and also ensure that their travel insurance COVERS baggage damage.

Meanwhile at home and in our own region,
As we report on news as it’s revealed to us, it’s worth remembering the MAJOR news articles which have YET to see a public conclusion. As a reminder, in case any are accidentally swept under the carpet, we await reports on:
1. The compensation for those who died and were injured in the Sattahip nightclub inferno that saw 1 in 5 people die and numerous injured due to cheap fabrication.
2. The compliance of Pattaya City nighttime venues WITH fire safety requirements that determine the number of fire exits required for a venue, together with use of fire retardant material and installation of proper fire extinguishers, with staff knocking the difference between water-filled and foam-filled canisters.
3. The names, not just initials, of the couple who employed youngsters in Tree Town
4. The outcome of the investigation into the ruthless treatment of a foreign woman who was due to be flown home by her own government, but for some reason fell from a balcony to her death.
These RECENT news articles remain with so many questions unanswered.

Yesterday saw the chief of Pattaya police surprise his 382 subordinates with.. a urine test.  More used to testing the public, each officer was tested for methamphetamine use.  As cameramen hovered over those getting their tests results, the good news is that not one failed the testing.  However, all have been told that random testing is the way of the future and anyone signing up for the brown uniform should be aware that testing WILL result in arrests for those who fail. So, whatever happens over this long weekend, which is expected to see the city busy, you can be sure, we are told, that your local policeman will be on his toes and not off his wotsits.
