Pattaya news - Fabulous 103fm
Ongoing narcotics investigations, assisted by statements given by previous arrestees, now in jail, resulted in police nabbing 4 people during raids yesterday that covered 14 properties within 7 provinces, including Chonburi. At one location alone, some 50 weapons and ammunition were seized along with 14 million bahts worth of designer watches and other goods. Bangkok, Chiang Rai, Tak, Maha Sarakham, Prachuap Khiri Khan, Nonthaburi and Chonburi a total of 130 million bahts worth of goods went from criminal to police hands in the day that also saw one further man wanted by police on similar warrants.

Energy conservation is a key issue for Thailand as global prices for oil and gas rocket, seeing the PM setting targets of a 20% reduction in use. With countries like Ireland now selling petrol at above 2 Euros a litre, and more for Diesel, yesterday saw the continued guarantee of pure standard diesel remaining at under 30 baht at the pumps following a second subsidy, which adds up to the total of excise charged here. That alone is intended to support trade and industry and keep prices from soaring. Now perhaps is the time to unplug all those chargers when you aren’t using them, as they continue to cost you money on your power bill, and cut back on any household or business equipment not essential as there IS a possibility of an electricity price hike because Thailand uses oil to produce it.

Firemen quickly extinguished a blaze in an oil and petroleum tanker moored in Samut prakan. Despite being laden with highly combustible gasoline, the fire was, we are told, NOT close to the tanks themselves; however at least one died on board and others were injured. Forensics experts are onboard today to establish the cause of the fire on the Thai registered tanker.

In a separate incident, this time in the south of Thailand, STOP THE BOAT was an order given to marine patrols after a crew member called emergency services to claim that he had been forced to remain on board for the past 13 months without any shore leave. The LPG tanker was boarded by patrols close to Pang Gna and all crew interviewed, it seems they had 9 month contracts but had been forbidden to leave after the contract expired . Of the 18 on board, at least 5 asked to be removed, as the ship was forced to dock on Phuket.

In Khon Kaen, the governor has announced an extension on the total ban on alcohol sales for on site drinking at any venue. Previously put into place on February 23, the ban has been extended and covers all venues including eateries.

Business operators have urged city hall to investigate what they described as Rogue traders, offering SHA Plus certification, bi-passing the queue at city hall, and without inspection, all for a mere , well anything up to 45K baht. Turns out the certification has, in many cases been FAKE and all are advised NOT to use unauthorised agents as, when checks have been done, officials have closed venues when checks on their paperwork reveal the fake documents. Businesses have, they say, done nothing wrong as the people they dealt with claim to be officials.. City hall, less than impressed, is investigating and it’s likely heads will roll.

Smog levels in the area have risen again significantly seeing this morning at 5am showing 137 but clearing slightly as the sun rose. That though doesn’t help as many sleep with windows open. Recommendations? Air purifier units and keeping windows shut after dusk.
