THURSDAY’S LATEST NEWS FROM THAILAND in English (8 June 2023) from Fabulous 103fm Pattaya

Search continues for missing tourist in Thailand 
In Chiang Mai the mother of a missing 22 year old Malaysian lady has flown in, along with a translator as the search continues there for her daughter.  It’s now believed that whether under pressure or of her own volition,  Angie, real name Chong Sum Yee, may have crossed over in Myanmar and as of the end of last month her phone signal petered out.  She HAD been staying in a Mae sai hotel previously and had always talked to her mother daily. Thai and Burmese authorities are working together to try and locate her.

Tourists rescued from Bangkok bus inferno 
Fifteen Polish tourists lost their luggage but otherwise were uninjured when a tour coach carrying them toward Ayutthaya from the capital burst into flames.   The fire actually began in the luggage area and saw the driver pull over on the Si Rat expressway before the whole coach was incinerated, resulting in huge traffic tailbacks until the wreckage could be removed.

‘Move forward party’ faces complaints & legal claims
As the start date for Thailand’s new parliament gets closer, an onslaught of legal claims appears daily from those who oppose the duly elected party, Move Forward.  With everything from the leader holding shares in a media company, which is against the rules BUT in this case it was a defunct broadcaster without any output, AND are they proposing regulations in defiance of the current constitution.. Now, questions as to the design of posters used to garner votes, the legal claims seem to come from every angle but are unlikely to sway courts and the election commission, who have to go through them and assess their validity.

27 smuggled monkeys rescued in tip-off
In Udon thani province, two locals were nabbed transporting 27 long tailed primates toward Laos.  Intended as foodstuff for exotic restaurants, the sickly animals were found sweating, packed in netting to stop them moving and crammed into a small space.  The vehicle stop was a result of a tip off which is often worrying as it may well be that other cars slipped through without hindrance.

Thailand sees over 5,600 online scams reported in 1 week
Just how bad is the spurge of online scams affecting Thailand? Well, according to the task force leader of the The Police Cyber Task Force they have handled some 5600 complaints.. IN ONE WEEK!    An increase of nearly 900 on the previous week, most refer to promises of investments through to sale of goods that don’t exist, promises of employment, and extortion.  Either way all authorities are repeatedly warning locals and expats NOT to buy on social media, as creating a profile is easy , and those usually disappear once a sizable amount has been gleaned from visitors. With Shopee, Lazada and the like you DO have a large element of protection, and otherwise don’t pay until you receive goods.

Motorbike taxi apprehends Pattaya gold shop robber
When an 18 year old wannabe gold shop robber fled a South Pattaya shop, along with 150K bahts worth of the yellow stuff, he wasn’t bargaining on a local motorcycle taxi driver giving chase. Quickly BROUGHT DOWN, he was held until police arrived and only then was it ascertained that he wasn’t armed, but simply a chancer.. chances are that he will be behind bars for quite a while.

Indian squatters open nightclub in abandoned Pattaya building 
When the owner of a building on third road finally came to inspect his property after being away for several years, he found that instead of a closed up building, it had been converted into a Show bar with rooms above rented out, allegedly by Indians. Well that’s for sure, as the club was named Rock star Indian club.  A full inspection revealed that many of the rooms were damaged, others had illegal tenants, and of course there is the small matter of the entertainment operating downstairs.   An indian man, claiming to be just the caretaker stated he had no idea who owned the place as he worked for others who are currently out of town.

Pattaya Pride Parade this weekend
Between 3 and 6 on  SATURDAY,  Part of the Jomtien Beach area is likely to see traffic congestion as the Pattaya Pride Community hold their annual parade.  Guaranteeing a mass of colour and interest, the LGHBT group is likely to see a lot of support.
