Thailand & Pattaya News, from Fabulous 103fm (29 April 2022)

The Fuel Fund Executive Committee has approved a last minute decision to subsidise Diesel when the current agreement expires Sunday. Previously capped at 30 baht, Diesel users can expect an initial 32 BAHT A LITRE at the pumps but with the expectation that prices may well rise to 35. The committee will review global prices weekly to determine if and when the further increases are applied. 2 baht is, according to most, an OK increase and will not see noticeable increases in transportation of goods or retail prices to consumers.

Thai media is awash with reports of some 300 women who signed up for casino work via an online promotion, seeing them travel to the promise of well paid jobs, across the border in Burma. INSTEAD, they claim, they were forced into prostitution. One woman has come forward after escaping, to report to Police that she had been threatened and told she was automatically in debt to her effective kidnappers to the tune of 25K baht. She and another woman fled the casino based operation and made it to the border crossing where they waited for shift change in border guards and finally waded across the river to waiting Thai authorities. Both have stated that some 300 other women are being held against their will and that all had been recruited online after a so called social media influencer ran a live broadcast promising real work and guaranteeing that it was safe and not involving prostitution.

In Chiang Mai province, the appeals court have given control of confiscated housing developments to the treasury department with plans to demolish them.  The luxury developments, some of which had already been sold to the well heeled, were built on close to 90 rai of state owned forest land at the base of the Doi Suthep hillside.  45 houses in all, plus condos and contents are expected to be sold at auction before demolition takes place. The battle to take them back has run for 4 years since conservationists first appeared before courts.

Top policemen at the Royal thai police HQ have told media that disciplinary hearings against officers of all ranks accused of corruption, has resulted in 25 found guilty, 19 sacked and 6 allowed to resign. In all since January, a total of 88 have been relieved of their jobs.

Good news for bike racing fans as the state has approved  the return of the annual MOTO GP in Buriram following 2 years of absence due to covid. As the country recovers and urgently looks to returning to NORMAL, so racers from around the globe will be invited to the event which is expected to build tourism for that region too.

As we reported this week, walking st goes back to becoming a pedestrian precinct so police in the region are clamping down on anything that causes traffic hold up, ahead of a hoped for return to business here. On Soi Buakhao, bike parking has, to say the least, been random, seeing roadside parking on the already narrow soi blocking traffic in many cases. Cops have been out in the past few days moving them on and reminding riders that it’s a road not a car park. In Jomtien, sea front VENDORS have been moved on after complaints that many were trading OUTSIDE of approved hours or, again, causing congestion.

Storms through the night have seen minor flooding in some areas with debris and sand washed onto some rural roads. Bike riders are warned to keep a plastic raincoat with them as the storms cover much of Thailand and WILL continue thru the weekend.  Good news though that with the rain, the smog reports for the region show excellent visibility and air quality.
