Investigations begin today into a minivan crash in Nakhon ratchasima which resulted in 11 of 12 passengers on board dying at the scene as it burned out. As emergency services raced all to local hosptials, tests were due to be carried out on the driver which may give up some clues.
The labour ministry reminded all Non-thais here that working without a work permit and associated visa is not only illegal but carries heavy fines for those caught. Investigations into non-Thais working are due to be expanded to our own province as well as the capital, Chiang Mai, Phuket and Koh Samui.

Government representatives have flatly denied claims spouted by a Chinese onliner that she paid 6 or 7K baht to get sped through immigration at the airport and then driven in an almost motorcade to her dwelling in pattaya.

In Krabi, an autopsy has been ordered for a German tourist who was said, by his mother to be “depressed”, before he was found and escorted from a mountaintop where he had planned to take his own life. That aside, he was chatty with cops until he stepped away from them and jumped from a rocky peak to his death. His mother had called the park service and reported that he was there with intent to kill himself, they then located him and sent a team to remove him safely, which they did… until he ran toward the Cliffside and jumped falling a reported 50 metres.
