Thailand & Pattaya HEADLINE NEWS from Fabulous 103fm (29 November 2022)

An administrative court complaint has been filed against the Thai sports authority and the broadcasting commission following a previous court decision that True has exclusive rights to about half of the world cup games broadcast here, as it covered just 25% of the total cost. Citing the fact the the majority of funds came from the public purse, the NBTC and other government entities, the complaint demands that all in Thailand get to watch the matches, specifically the final at no cost and that rights to IPTV, the internet and mobile transmission was given, in many cases, exclusively to True and thus, according to them violated the NBTC’s “Must Have, Must Carry” rule which expects numerous sports event which include the world cup to be transmitted at not cost to viewers on signal to air and other methods of transmission.

Ganga retailers hiring so-called Thai traditional doctors, to circumvent the requirement for a licenced retailer to be on the premises of a marijuana business, as it can technically only be sold for medical reasons, HAVE BEEN WARNED. The Public Health Ministry noted retailers in bkk hiring traditional practitioners to circumvent the law, 33 have been put on warning, this as in the same area, some are setting up exclusive weed smoking areas to allow buyers to smoke dope whilst adhering to laws that prevent its smoking in a public place OR on licenced premises. The YES NO debate for legal sales of marijuana buds continues here daily, since new laws went into effect a week or so ago, and further laws are to be debated early in the New Year. Cannabis can however be smoked on premises license as medical facilities, this per the Department of Thai Traditional and Alternative Medicine.

An all out emergency was called in Ranong, seeing police and army units race to a private school, after reports of a person firing on the playground area from the 3rd floor of an adjacent building. With 8 youngsters attending the daily flag raising ceremony, a tradition in all Thai schools, those kids took cover as others living in the building fled, ahead of security teams coming in. A 43 year old man was arrested, claiming that he was ticked off with the noise from the school, he will not be allowed bail as police expect him to undergo psychological examinations. With no one injured, the school returned to normal quickly.

Meanwhile at home and in Pattaya, mid day saw a local 74 year old expat crossing the 2nd road in Jomtien, waiting for the lights to tell him it was safe, and using one of the newly painted pedestrian crossings he proceeded. As other vehicles stopped, a white pickup sped through, throwing him into the air and leaving him seriously injured. Passers by went to his assistance and he was taken by ambulance to hospital where he had at least 4 stitches and was treated for multiple bruising REALITY he could have died. That truck, well it fled from the scene. Police fully expect to locate the truck and driver as all was caught on CCTV.

A 4.30 AM visit to a Soi Bongkot club saw authorities mulling a multitude of vehicles still parked outside, forcing entry the found over 100 people still partying and drinking with loud music. 15 failed drug tests, stashes of drugs were found strewn as the raid took place and the operators, were duly arrested, amid claims that the club had no licence and certainly was open way after closing time.

And it looks like Banglamung licencing IS taking safety issues seriously for bars and clubs here in the region, well for the future anyway/ As licensees apply to renew their license SO they are finding that new rules are being imposed which require safety features to be installed for the protection of patrons. Even an open air beer bar NOW is expected to have stand alone exit signs, non reliant on power supplies, a fire extinguisher AND a fire alarm. Inspections are promised in the future and all are warned that they either comply or close. No word on how this will affect the bigger, older, huge clubs which, in some instances, are well known for a lack of fire safety and, again in some cases, a total lack of fire exits other than main entrances. No business is grandfathered out of the national safety requirements for entertainment buildings but, it seems, some slip through the net.
