– Thailand’s Move Forward party could be dissolved after court loss
In what many seem as the opening shot at the closure of K Pita’s Move Forward party, the Constitutional Court ruled unanimously on Wednesday that they were guilty of seeking to overthrow the country’s constitutional monarchy system.  This as they had proposed plans to amend those sections of the constitution which protect the monarchy.  The court yesterday ruled that those involved should cease and desist in any furtherance of the idea, which has never been broached in parliament, and many now predict that there will be someone who will pose the dissolution of the party as a result. The court said that Pita and Move Forward had carried out their election campaigns without taking into account the principle that the King must be above politics and must be politically non-partisan.

– Thailand to consider visa-free travel for 26 nations
Thailand’s foreign minister is expected to ask cabinet approval for an ambitious plan that would see him broaching the concept of free travel between the majority of European nations, in the Schengen area and this country.  With many pointing out that the European group rarely affords such to a nation but rather a region, the proposers claim that it is indeed a viable proposition.  If approved, ever, that would allow travel without visas both ways to 26 nations.

– 10% salary hike expected for civil servants 
Newly recruited civil servants can expect a 10% salary hike, aimed at those on incomes of under 18K a month, and including teachers.  The increase will not be afforded to those on higher incomes but is seen as an inducement for those considering government employment in any department

– E-cigarette use by schoolchildren soars in Thailand
– Clampdown on use of e-cigarettes in Thailand following increase of use by schoolchildren
The state has highlighted the increasing use of e-cigarettes, illegal in Thailand, by schoolchildren.  Estimating that use has risen five fold in just 7 years,  it’s a tough one to control, as sales are technically illegal here but the cigs are easily found on most markets.

– Russian-Belarusian Anti-War Rock Band may face deportation from Thailand
Thai immigration teams have found themselves between a rock and a hard place as they currently are housing a Russian Belarusian pop band who were entertaining without the relevant work permits on Phuket.  With many objecting to their expulsion from the nation, and the law clearly stating that that is an order, it’s been clarified by supporters that if deported they may face issues as they have been vocal in their opposition to the leadership in Russia. The National Security Council was finding facts about the matter.

– Broke Australian on overstay makes it home to Oz
An Australian man, who turned up at a Phuket airport without much money and facing a fine for overstay, has finally been sent packing toward Oz.  The 44 year old had a flight ticket but only 8,000 baht, not enough to cover his 11,000 fine. He claims that he had reported the theft of his wallet to police previously, that though would have seen them check his passport. Instead, funds became available for him to say goodbye to the land of smiles.

– Pattaya woman injured in knife-fight with British husband
In Nong prue, a domestic row between an Englishman and his wife saw police called by HER after it was alleged that she drew a kitchen knife to attack him but he overpowered her and instead, struck her with the weapon.  The 27 year old was treated for hand wounds, no word if they have made up.

– Police hunt for gunman in North Pattaya shooting 
Meanwhile at home and a shooting between two Thais on the north pattaya road has seen police report that a 39 year old local man, employed as security at an entertainment venue, was shot by a neighbour with whom he had fallen out.    The six in the morning shooting, in which he was shot 4 times, has been blamed by the, now missing, gunman’s family on his being beaten by the now demised man, along with his pals… and a Pitbull dog that bit him.  A warrant HAS been issued for his arrest.

– Hundreds laid off from Rayong solar factory 
The sun may be shining again in the region but that hasn’t helped employees at a Rayong factory, where they manufactured solar panels as this week has seen hundreds laid off work.  Blaming a drop in demand for the product, despite the popularity of solar power, many had not been paid in full for a considerable time.
