VERY LATEST NEWS FROM THAILAND in English (1 September 2023) from Fabulous 103fm Pattaya

– Prayut bids farewell to government house, Prawit resigns
As Gen Prayut finally bowed out in his last official day as caretaker PM, he said goodbye to staff and, amazingly, the press in a day of auf wiedersehens and smiles. This on the same day that his number 2, general Prawit, long predicted to become a part of the new coalition government, appears to have announced his imminent resignation as an MP. The two so-called UNCLES of politics in recent times, since the coup, have been at the forefront of Thai politics until the recent election.

– Pheu Thai anticipates 3 year timeline to write new constitution
Pheu thai, the new head of Thailand’s coalition government has NOW said that it could take up to three years to write a new constitution for the nation AND that prior to starting that task, promised in its election campaign, the matter of IF a rewrite should be done, would go to a public vote. Anyone doing the maths will see that in all likelihood, were they to complete their full term in office before another election, the rewrite, approval and implementation may not be done before another election becomes due. If it were done, then it would, at best, not be completed for close to 4 years. The question remains as to whether the whole constitution needs rewriting OR whether the current version can simply be amended, which would take far less time to complete.

– Bombings in Mae Hong Son
Just over half a KM from the border with Thailand’s Mae hong son area, Burmese military forces carried out 4 heavy bombing airstrikes yesterday. The 25 minute barrage is said to have been a cover for government teams to get in and deliver supplies to THEIR forces in the area.

– 200 year old violin returned by good samaritan taxi
Thai media is awash with the positive news story of a chinese violinist who forgot his 200 yr old violin when riding in a taxi in the capital. The internationally famous player is said to have contacted authorities straight away, Police liaised with taxi authorities to get the word out and the taxi driver, when alerted, duly dropped the violin off at the Thong lor police station, handing it over to a pal of the errant string musician. Who, we are told, gave the driver A VOUCHER in gratitude. The violin? Well, reports say it is valued at around 18 million baht.

– Ex PM Thaksin applies for royal pardon
Thailand’s currently most well known pensioner has, according to report, filed for royal clemency already, against his 8 year jail term. Former PM Thaksin, currently residing in a police hospital unit following his return here is reported by Thai media as having already filed with the corrections department. That then goes to the PM for approval. With the PM now also leading the party which supports Thaksin and his family in politics.. that will be an interesting review. Were it to be approved, it would then be forwarded to HM the King for consideration. Traditionally, HM the King affords various amounts of clemency to those in jail who qualify on an annual or semiannual basis.

– 16 Thai school children injured in bus wreck
16 school children, aged between 10 and 17, were injured in Nakhon Ratchasima yesterday, after a school bus careered into a traffic light early morning. Emergency teams recovered the children from the wreckage, which was on its side and those injured were hospitalised. The driver? He seems to have admitted trying to get through the lights by accelerating when the lights were going to red.. and then lost control. Likely to now be unemployed, he has already been charged with dangerous driving causing injury.

– Fake goods crushed
And the annual fake goods destruction ceremonies took place yesterday, seeing police destroying unoriginal wares which, combined, would have had a street value of 800 million baht. Over a million fakes, from watches to handbags, car parts to toys were piled up in a yard before a steam roller was used to crush them to bits. With a huge amount of clothing and jewelry included, the pile was later crushed and will be shredded.

–  Mysterious panels wash up on Thai beach
On Koh Phangan Island, more debris from an unidentified aero object has been discovered washed up on shorelines, heavy storms have washed the steel panels up over the past week, experts are still trying to establish what they were. Possibly from an aeroplane, but to date no word from official sources.

The child, a female, has been hospitalized since her mother notified authorities and a full scale investigation was underway quickly. He denies charges of assault, of a personal nature, but admits he was close to the child.
