– 3 MP’s banned from politics 
In the capital, the Supreme Court found three now ex-MP’s guilty of breaches of the regulations set out for politicians in parliament.  All three have been banned from public office for a decade as they were found to have handed their voting cards in parliament to others who voted on their behalf, rather than attending themselves.  No word on any action regarding those who voted in their place but as the passing of motions in the house is done with pass cards to avoid any dispute over counts, the issue is considered a serious one.  No effect on the current government though as they did this several years ago.

– Son drowned father & daughter in steel boxes for inheritance 
In Sakon nakhon from where we reported yesterday on a man arrested for dumping two steel cases in a lake, containing his father and sister, the errant son, accused of causing their demise has admitted it all, telling police he does NOT have mental issues but that they had constantly rowed.. over inheritance.  The now expired father had threatened to cut his son out of his will and he figured the only way to ensure his future was to knock off the family entirely.  Seems he lured them both to the lakeside to inspect his new steel cabinets, and persuaded them to lie down in them.. so in essence, they drowned.  Mental issues, well for sure, but he will remain in jail pending a court hearing.

– Foreign boxer loses his life in motorbike accident 
On Phuket police report on the death of a well known Iranian Muay Thai boxer who rode a so- called BIG bike through an underpass, which is illegal, and crashed.  Seems he ignored the signs that ban bikes of any type from the underpasses here and, not wearing a helmet, crashed when he hit a curb.  The 23 year old had an excellent history in amateur boxing, came to Thailand to improve his skills and had recently gone professional, winning two of his three bouts.

– Three illnesses pose as threat to Thailand this year
The Thai dept of disease control reports that three illnesses could impact the nation this year.  Dengue, Covid and Influenza are all issues which, they say, may reach high levels among the population.  All good surgeries, even small side street doctors, can offer flu jabs and now, well it’s a good time to get one for just a few hundred baht.

– Illegal pork flooding Thai markets could be over 1 year old
Many have wondered why the recent operation to eradicate the import of illegal pork here in Thailand has been such a big one.. Well, in addition to recent arrests, the volume of pork being worth billions of baht and the issue of storage. It has now been revealed that much of the flesh has come from countries where they had previously been stored but became worthless as they exceeded the legal storage age, in most cases a year, so were sold off essentially DIRT CHEAP to dealers. Tens of thousands of containers have been located and the local pork trade has seen prices dip as the, basically refuse, has flooded the market here.

– Electricity rates capped until April 
Electricity rates have been fixed at a max of 4.2 baht a unit by the energy regulation commission.. The subsidised rate will extend to the end of April when it will be reviewed again.  For those using minimal amounts, the rate will be lower, to assist those on low incomes.

– Road closures this weekend in Pattaya
Meanwhile at home and in Pattaya, preparing for Saturday’s Children’s day DOES mean that several roads will be temporarily closed.  Best to avoid north Pattaya road as for much of Saturday morning it will be partially blocked off around city hall.

– Thief snatches gold necklace from Walking street masseuse 
The thief who stole a one baht gold necklace from a Thai masseuse working in Walking street has been arrested. Seems the burley 19 year old snatched it from her neck, leaving a distinct bruise but was caught on CCTV. Not good news for the lady though as it seems he sold it quickly to support his online gambling addiction.

– Low-Hanging signs in Pattaya pose threat to pedestrians 
With the increase in visibility for pedestrian crossings, someone in city hall ticked the boxes for hi viz signs warning drivers to slow down and give way to pedestrians. That though wasn’t so well thought out as many of the signs are lower than many pedestrians, seeing reports of several injuries as those on the footpaths walked into.. the signs.  It’s possible that the management in charge were shorter than average and used their own physique to set the levels but either way we can expect them to be raised.. or more injuries.
