VERY LATEST NEWS FROM THAILAND in English (10 November 2023) from Fabulous 103fm Pattaya


– Earthquake hits northern Thai provinces 
Mae hong Son provincial authorities report an earthquake of 4.7 in magnitude yesterday.  The early afternoon quake, which was also felt across much of the Chiang Mai province,  was followed by a second tremor.  No damage or injuries reported.

– Bodies of 8 Thais returned from Israel 
The solemn arrival of 8 more Thais, who died during the initial conflict in Israel arrived finally in Thailand yesterday to be greeted with a respectful reception.  These then are the last of a total of 34 who were killed by invading militants whilst working the area.

– Petrol station owners to face fines for hoarding fuel 
Petrol  station owners who mark their gasoline pumps as “Sold out” face heavy fines, according to authorities, who have received multiple reports of customers being instead referred to more expensive fuel.  With the new subsidies now in effect, some, we are told, are blocking sales to fuel bought prior to the discounts whilst others claim they are waiting for tankers. A 2.5 baht per litre price drop, following government intervention, see’s existing stocks essentially being sold at close to cost. Other stations, with the knowledge that the lower priced supplies would be coming, cancelled orders and allowed tanks to run empty until the lower priced supplies could arrive.  By now it’s all levelling out though and motorists are, for the most part, finding plenty of stations with all pumps open.

– Yingluck Shinawatra eyes return to Thailand
With Thaksin Shinawatra back in Thailand, his sentence cut and he, avoiding jail, remaining in hospital due to medical conditions, it’s now the turn of his SISTER, Yingluk, to employ lawyers in an attempt to secure HER safe return.  With cases against her still outstanding, there is no word as to whether Yinguk will have any luck or no luck in her attempts to get back home.  This as Thaksins DAUGHTER is now the face of the ruling Pheu Thai party which came second in the general election BUT now heads up the government.  Courts deemed Yingluck guilty of dereliction of duty in several matters, including the infamous rice pledging program that led to warehouses of worthless crops and was sentenced to 5 years in her absence after she fled the country.

– Thais remain stranded in Myanmar 
The good News that Thais duped into travelling to Myanmar with the promise of non existent work and subsequently being forced into call centres there,  were due to be freed and returned following a visit by deputy police chief Hakparn, have been sightly thwarted according to Burmese media as the plan was for them to make their exit via routes to China, which are closer to where they were being kept. But as infighting in that country, which has seen the ruling military taking something of a pasting recently by nationalists, we are hearing that other armed groups opposing the government, have overrun dozens of military posts, and captured border crossings and the roads carrying most of the overland trade with China.  That, then could delay their exit.

– Thai Miss Universe Pageant owner files for bankruptcy
JKN global group,  a Thai company which bought the Miss Universe pageant rights a year ago for a reported 20 Million US, is said to have filed for bankruptcy protection here.  The stock exchange listed group saw its board approve the application  which would allow it to continue trading but give protection from creditors whilst it attempts to recover.  THAT application has yet to be approved.

– Heavily intoxicated Brazilian causes mayhem in Phuket
On Phuket, a drunken Brazilian was finally caught by police as he sped across the region, driving a pickup truck and damaging several vehicles, whilst causing accidents and injuries to others as he attempted to flee from authorities.  With his truck damaged, he finally tried to escape on foot.  But was quickly caught.  His blood alcohol test is said to have shown over 4 times the legal limit.

– Lost & hungry abandoned elephant calf rescued
And in Nakhon Ratchasima,  locals discovered an abandoned elephant calf, starving and desperate.  The one month old was reported to park management teams who know that the likelihood is that it’s mother will be dead as, otherwise, elephants are extremely protective.  They decided they went about teaching the calf to feed from containers and, we are told, following 24 hour a day care it has returned to good health.  With no herds reported nearby, the issue will be whether it should remain in care, at a sanctuary OR be introduced to a herd elsewhere.  Either way.. its future appears to be bright.

– Pattaya City Hall discusses plans for later entertainment opening hours 
Pattaya’s city hall meets to discuss the planned extension of opening hours in the city as K Pattanisan, President of the local Business and Tourism Association welcomed the plans that he believes will stimulate the local economy.  He, though, is adamant that approval in the city be mindful of residential areas and hotels and wants an assurance of measures in place to control the behaviour of young people, ensuring a harmonious high season.

– Jazz Festival featuring Kenny G in Pattaya this weekend 
And good news for music fans as , from tonight, we enjoy two amazing evenings of free jazz on the beachfront.  Directly opposite the central mall, you can enjoy the sounds of premiere musicians from around the world, such as Kenny G.  Roads will NOT be closed, parking though wil be a tough one, so best to park away from the front and take a bike or baht bus.
