Thailand & Pattaya News, from Fabulous 103fm (12 August 2022)

A Navy squadron leader is the latest to pass away in hospital as a result of burns received in the Sattahip Pub fire a week ago. Bringing the death count to 17, and with dozens remaining in critical condition,  the 40 year old was a fleet leader at the naval aviation operations near Rayong.

Despite the ease of installation of child seats in all cars, and belt kits available for vehicles without them fitted in back seats, the new child seat laws, effective September 5th, will only require babies to be in baby seats in cars first registered after January 1988 and trucks after 1994.   With fines of 2,000 baht set in the new rule books, it’s expected that a period of warnings only will go into effect for the first few weeks.  No word on booster seat  requirements for children up to 6 who are too old for baby seats, but we expect more on that soon.

Two bodies discovered in a rural area in Nakhon Ratchasima have been identified as a Vietnamese woman and her Nigerian partner.  Found weeks ago, and without any ID, SHE was finally identified through a microchip installed as part of her breast implant operation.  Police are working on information that suggests both were involved in crystal m eth trafficking and that their rented home was used as a drop off/pickup point on a smuggling route.

Today is a national holiday, the start of a three day weekend as Thailand celebrates the birthday of HM the Queen Sirikit.  Mother to the current King, today is also officially mothers day in Thailand and will see families making merit to their matriarchs throughout the country. All government offices close today, reopening Monday.

A 42 year old ex-bank employee has been arrested in her new vocation.. as a nun.  The 42 year old former Rayong bank manager fled to dress in white at a temple 7 yrs ago, after allegedly fleecing customers in a similar way to a recent case involving Kasikorn bank. Gaining respect from her clients, she wrote manual deposit slips but.. failed to bank the cash, making off with 3 million baht before bank auditors noticed anything wrong. For those involved in the Kasikorn bank fiasco, many still haven’t received funds back from the bank, despite their innocence and the employee, here in Pattaya, having long been nabbed.

A crane crashed to the ground killing its operator in Sri Racha, it seems the building team FAILED to add enough concrete counterweights to the crane before attempting to lift 17 ton concrete pillars.  Despite the use of other cranes to raise the one that fell, it was too late for the operator and an investigation into site safety is underway.

Week 2 of the Pattaya Music Festival kicks off tonight, this time on Jomtien beach and featuring two nights of top musicians entertaining those in seated areas, but also those who chose to sit outside the fenced off areas along the beach. Slight concern for organisers is a predicted early evening shower but Jomtien is expected to be rammed, as the city enjoys the fruits of the three day holiday nationwide.
