Thailand & Pattaya News, from Fabulous 103fm (15 August 2022)

A week on from the disastrous fire that burned out a pub club in Sattahip, authorities announced the passing at the weekend of the 18th victim, this time a 17 year old girl. Despite being 3 years under the legal age of entry to a drinking venue, the club owners have denied that underage customers were allowed access. Prior to her passing, surgeons had made every attempt to save her through a harrowing week of pain which included the amputation of her severely burned leg. The youngster had attended with another friend of similar age who died in the fire.

This as there appears to have been no response by the club owners to a pela from the family of a Vietnamese victim of the same catastrophe. She remains in ICU bandaged from head to foot and incurring massive daily hospital bills. The 28 year old lady sustained 80% burns. Until that night she was an attractive woman enjoying life and a resident of Sattahip. Due to the overload of cases at the closest hospital, her pals took her to Bangkok Pattaya Hospital where bills accumulated to close to 700,000 baht.  If insurance exists, which is a big question, and has not been nullified due to a lack of licences, another question, then it’s time for either the owners or their provider to step up to the plate to cover costs for sure. As to other bars and clubs in the region, which includes pattaya. Inspections, described by some as cursory, are said to have been carried out in some, not all venues BUT with overseas undercover TV crews covering the story, it might be better for those who do NOT meet regulations, to meet them quickly before being outed as some cubs here remain open despite patrons reporting them as significantly NOT meeting standards required under law for safety.


35 reservoir dams face overflow issues unless they open to allow more water to race downstream following tropical storm Mulan’s flooding of many areas of Thailand. Increased inflow means that extra outflow is needed and that could lead to flooding downstream.

A 22 yr old idiot who thought he had had his bag snatching skills after being addicted to TV series on the same subject, failed when he robbed a woman at knifepoint in Buriram. He got away with 19K baht and debit cards, leaving his victim scared and shaken, wore a hood and a mask and parked his bike away from the crime scene. What he didnt realise, and obviously wasn’t covered in his virtual training program, is that CCTV is everywhere here. That caught him robbing the lady and making his getaway, during which, he removed his mask and his bike number was clearly seen.

A committee formed at the behest of the house of representatives is likely to recommend new legislation that would allow casinos and gambling in the kingdom and that legislation could well be mooted in parliament before year end. So called entertainment complexes, essentially luxury hotels with casinos are all part of a plan that could see Thailand base gambling on the system used in Singapore, and as an automatic bi product generate huge revenue for the state, by way of taxes. Casinos here though could end up either operated by the state OR owned by the state and leased out. The committee also reviewed other forms of gambling such as nine gambling of various kinds, betting and day trading. This as at the weekend a raid on a Bangkok operated online gambling operation netted 46 million baht and saw 6 arrested by the Police Cyber Taskforce.

Social media is awash with the outcome of a court case regarding a condo dweller and his pets. Seems his condo had laws stating NO PETS which he ignored. They ended up in court and HE ended up with a fine of over 140K baht. For those who live in condos, then, it’s best to check the rules as this is seen as a precedent set for their condo disputes.

Over 100K inmates in Thai jails revised the annual reduction of sentences by HM the King this weekend, as the nation celebrated the birthday of the King’s mother, HM Queen Sirkit. The annual pardons see around 81K prisoners get sentence reduction and the balance freed from jail. Qualification for these pardons means that newly jailed convicts do not usually qualify as a percentage of their sentence has to have passed before they are listed as candidates.

Meanwhile at home and the highway police have apologized to the family of a motorist who died in a single vehicle accident but was left in his vehicle for over 12 hours. Cops noted the wrecked car on the motorway but ASSUMED that any people inside had already been rescued. Others who attended the scene failed to notice that the driver was still behind the wheel. Only when it was towed from the scene to a police centre was it discovered that the man was still inside. Forensic specialists HAVE though at least deemed that he died within minutes of the crash.

Pattaya week two of the music festival, held in Jomtien is reported to have been popular and well run. Police had zero in the way of cases reported from the event which will continue through the month.
