VERY LATEST NEWS FROM THAILAND in English (11 July 2023) from Fabulous 103fm Pattaya

– Missing German expat discovered in freezer
The case of the missing german, 62 year old Hans Peter Walter Mack in Pattaya has taken several twists in the past 24 hours as it has been confirmed that his remains have been found in a freezer in a home, previously rented by a fellow countryman on the Chok chai Garden Home 1 village estate. This as Fabulous 103 fm reporters reviewed our news articles over the past decade, discovering a second twist to this saga, in as much as we reported back in February 2018 on a case which is likely related to his demise. THEN – a German, also named as Hans Peter Walter Mack of the same age, and body build was arrested in our region, after being found in close association with young women, under the age of 18.  At that time, police reported that he had been arrested at a local room where officers discovered a 15 year old dressed only in a towel.  With his recent disappearance, his current wife..24.. offered  a reward of 3 million baht for his return.. and press reports indicate that 2 million had been withdrawn from his bank account very recently.

Missing since last Wednesday,  the huge effort to neutralize any source of identity given to his vehicle prior to it being abandoned is seen as the work of some one or person who had planned the disposal well in advance.  Seats, dashboard, door handles, gear and brake levers all sprayed with chemicals that would mask DNA and of course fingerprints.   Until Monday, the public had been encouraged to believe that he had been out on a business related call.  NOW, it’s suggested,  there is a likelihood that he could have been away from home for other reasons.  Without doubt, the location where the vehicle was found was always likely to have been a red herring, a move designed to put off investigators.

We confirmed the alleged link to an old Fabulous 103fm news broadcast from February 2018.  It’s unlikely that his case reached a court hearing as there is no record of sentence or deportation. This week, two expats have been called in for questioning along with a woman, all have refused to comment and engaged lawyers. Police diligently reviewed CCTV tapes at the weekend, leading them to the house, after clips showed apparent westerners transporting a freezer there in a black pickup.  All had abandoned the house by the time police searched and discovered him frozen and dismembered. Locals told police of a previous German tenant who stayed at the address for just 3 months.

– Two fatalities, a dozen injured in Bangkok overpass collapse
In other news, Two people died and close to a dozen were injured when an overpass, being constructed in Bangkok’s Lat Krabang district collapsed Monday whilst under construction.  The collapse, at 6pm on Monday night, happened during a time of heavy traffic and reports indicate that a crane tipped over after being used incorrectly to raise girders, seeing its load crash to the regular highway below.

– Former DSI chief gets two-year jail sentence for distortion of facts
Yesterday, the supreme court sentenced the ex-chief of Thailand’s department of special investigations to two years jail time following a series of hearings initiated by former PM Apisit and former deputy PM Suthep, both charging him with fraudulently pursuing the two and claiming that they had committed mrder by virtue of their position in society during political violence, involving red shirt demonstrators 13 yrs ago.  The court agreed that he was not authorized to investigate the two and that in their opinion his actions were politically motivated .

– Wanted Brit arrested for £7 million TV streaming fraud case
In Surat thani a 30 year old british man, Zak Smith, has been arrested at the behest of Britain’s Scotland yard.  Here on an overstay, his visitor visa had expired, Smith will be deported directly back to the Uk where HE faces charges that he defrauded the football league AND licensed media out of 7 million pounds, around 30 million baht, as he, along with others, streamed  football and other Television shows in an illegal online tv website over the course of 5 years.  It’s likely that his swap of a beachside home in Samui for a cell in a UK Prison won’t be short term, as his pals were previously sented to 30 yrs jail time there.

– Electricity price hike could reach over 6 baht/unit to recoup losses 
The Energy Regulatory Commission is reviewing three options that would see it recoup losses incurred during the spike in power prices over the past 12 months.  Despite fuel prices now returning to a lower level, subsidies are expected to be clawed back in price hikes that could see many businesses suffer AND homeowners too.  Best case of the three, for consumers is a tariff of close to 4 and a half baht per unit, worst – a whacking 6 and a third.   Between September and years end.

– 5 yrs anniversary of Chiang Rai cave rescue 
The 5 yr anniversary of the rescue from flooded Chiang Rai caves that saw 12 youngsters recovered by a multinational team of experts, was marked by a  large gathering at the cave entrance this week, seeing the lads, now in their late teens, along with their coach show respect and admiration to all involved including the late provincial governor who recently passed away.   It was back in 2018 that the group began an ill advised venture into the caves, seeing them trapped as flood waters rose quickly and international experts freely offering support and effort here alongside their Thai counterparts.
