– Leaving Thailand just got a little easier
For travelers leaving Thailand, Thai and non-Thai alike, the new automated passport channels opened yesterday with a fanfare, seeing them opened officially by the chairman of AOT amid the promise that up to 3 passengers can pass through every minute. Scan passports, take your glasses off, and scan face… gates open and you are through. Those with visa issues have a separate few desks, of course, but for the masses, the queues will certainly lessen. Full automation is planned for next month as this is a testing phase… once proven though, they will be rolled out in other international airports.

– Former PM Thaksin ready to face court after recovering from COVID
Finally recovered from his extreme bout of COVID, former PM Thaksin told the press that he is now fully ready to face the court case against him, claiming that it is, in his words, baseless. Those charges, dating back to an interview in 2015, were being processed as he was previously sentenced to 8 years in jail here when he returned from overseas, but that was reduced to 1. Never spending a night behind bars, he wallowed in a recovery unit at a hospital in the capital for 6 months before being released.

– Policeman arrested for shooting noisy hospital patient 
In Khon Kaen, a local policeman handed himself over to colleagues after taking exception to a noisy patient in the bed next to his sick father. Claiming that the man was preventing his dad from recovery, the cop took out his weapon and shot the other ailing man. Medics were unable to prevent his demise. Neither man knew each other prior to the event, but the police sergeant is said to have previously suffered from depression.

– Thai man caught selling fake passports for 600K Baht
A Thai man was caught at the weekend, red-handed, promising fake Thai passports for a nominal 600K baht. Those passports never reached his gullible customer base though, and despite knowing it was an illegal offer, several complained to the Chinese embassy which passed on details to Thai police. In his statement, he said that the price was cheap. Before COVID, he was getting 2.5 million from the rich and desperate.

– 300 baht tourism entry fee scrapped
That planned 300 baht tourism entry fee for visitors flying into Thailand? It’s been scrapped, according to the PM. It seems many believe that despite its moderate price, many might switch holiday destinations. The plan was to apply it to a fund that would, apart from other ventures, support medical bills for emergencies involving tourists, many of whom still come here without travel insurance and still book into the most expensive of private hospitals where bills mount up quickly.

– Over 100 drug addicts flee ‘abusive’ rehab center
On Krabi, over 100 recovering drug addicts fled from a rehab center where, they claim, they were abused, used as slave labor, and not allowed to leave even when their treatment was complete. As they gathered at a pier on a small island, hoping to leave, the authorities moved in and questioned them. 80 were finally allowed to go home, the others, we’re told, were returned to the center.

– FM Radio in Thailand to continue despite FAKE NEWS
Despite the AI-written garbled reports posted this weekend and needing to be read 10 times to understand any semblance of their meaning on social media, FM radio in Thailand is NOT ending this year. Far from it. A more comprehensive program IS being introduced to manage existing licenses, such as ours, and those small community stations WILL have to qualify, as we did, for a regular radio license. But as Thailand plans to enter the DAB market, it’s recognized that most here do NOT have DAB receivers and so, it is likely to be a slow launch running parallel with FM, where FM stations actually benefit by being automatically offered the rights to DAB broadcasting as well.

– Woman falls from 25th-floor balcony in Pattaya
Meanwhile, the weekend saw yet another fall from a condo balcony. This time, just before dawn, a woman was discovered below her 25th-floor abode in a central Pattaya block.

– Pattaya drunk driver crashes & sinks car in pond
When a drunk got behind the wheel on Saturday, he whacked into a pickup truck near Maprachan Lake before careering off into a pond. The sinking Yaris was discovered by local police who charged the 29-year-old, checked on the pickup driver, who was fine, and then helped arrange a tow truck for the sodden Toyota which, it’s expected, will be parked up for some while now.

– Fishing boat capsizes off Jomtien Beach
Early Sunday morning, a swell in the bay saw several small fishing boats falter off Jomtien Beach and one capsize. The 7 AM sinking saw emergency services called and both men on board safely recovered but treated for water inhalation on their return to shore.

– Pattaya Pride parade a roaring success
And Pattaya’s pride march was, we are told, a roaring success at the weekend, seeing a parade from Thepprasit to Jomtien and numerous points of entertainment. Well attended, the celebrations will continue.
