– Politicians eat decade-old rice amid Shinowatra family legal battles
As the Pua Thai Party struggles to clean up the reputation of former PM Yingluck, who is still abroad and facing charges here, the Shinawatra family works to pave the way to show that she did nothing really wrong. This was highlighted this month as senior politicians ate from a bowl of rice said to be from that huge stock still held ten years on from her rice pledging scheme. Seen by many as a PR exercise, amid claims that thousands of tonnes of old rice could still be sold to third world countries, Thailand’s commerce minister has told the press that if an opposing MP didn’t stop making false allegations about the 15 thousand tonne remainder, he would ask agencies to take action. Yingluck was sentenced to 5 years’ jail time. Obviously, it would be convenient if that sentence were reduced, as then the final member of Thaksin’s family could return.

– 2nd suspect arrested in chilling ‘man in a barrel’ case 
A second of the three accomplices in the killing of a Korean man just outside Pattaya at the weekend has been arrested in Cambodia. As predicted, he had fled over the land crossings from Thailand. With one arrested earlier back in Korea after flying there, only one other now remains on the run. Saturday saw police recovering the remains of a Korean man, said to have been involved in a drug deal with his fellow countrymen, found in a barrel filled with concrete at Lake Mabprachan, leading them to launch a full-on manhunt. According to Thai media, the latest arrestee is being handed over by Phnom Penh police to Korean, not Thai, authorities. The third man is believed to have fled in the opposite direction, with reports that he crossed the Burmese border at the weekend.

– Thai woman arrested for acid & knife attack on cheating husband
Police in Kanchanaburi province this week have arrested a 45-year-old local woman, accused of dealing with her now future ex-husband’s infidelity in a bizarre way. It seems when word reached her that he was having a fling, she flung acid too. Doused and burning, she stabbed him several times too. Quickly hospitalized, the man is expected to have lifelong scars. The wife denies everything.

– Foreign toddler passes away after being hit by Pattaya driver
Meanwhile, at home and in a quiet narrow side soi, a 3-year-old child, believed to be of Estonian parentage, died after being run over by a woman driving an SUV this week. At the time, the soi had vehicles parked on both sides, and it’s believed that the child, who was playing alone with another child, ran out into the street. A sad reminder to parents to keep small children safely behind gates unless supervised. Medics rushed to the scene and did their very best to save his life. CCTV footage from numerous residents has been forwarded to police, and as is standard practice in any fatal accident, the driver, who was en route to collect her children from school, was duly arrested but later released. The 44-year-old driver has fully assisted police in their investigation.

– City Hall urged to address drainage issues ahead of rainy season
City halls have been advised by Bang Lamung officials to check drainage issues after the recent storms, readying the area for the full-on rainy season. Residents are invited to report any failures in drainage, including blockages, to their local authority, and all, we are told, will be investigated. Water supplies in many parts of the city and region remain on slow, low pressure as the water company works to reduce demand against fast-emptying reservoirs. Complaints to the water company by residents who are getting a few hours of water supply a day through their tap are falling on deaf ears.

– Thai man bites off ear in Chonburi market brawl
When a Chonburi man found that his cheating wife was pregnant, he knew it wasn’t his child and decided to confront her lover. Catching up with him in a local market, a fight broke out. Several others joined in, on both sides, and police raced into action. By then, most had fled, but the errant lover remained, bleeding as the woman’s husband had bitten off a part of his ear. Cops searched for the missing lobe, but it wasn’t to be found.
