VERY LATEST NEWS FROM THAILAND in English (15 November 2023) from Fabulous 103fm Pattaya

– News team replaced by AI due to local virus
Today’s news is read by AI as the whole of our morning crew suffers the local flu virus.  Once we have voices again, we will be back to normal.  Meanwhile for those who just want to moan on Youtube.  This is the point where you click off and go elsewhere. Meanwhile, to those who kindly understand and can put up with this Thanks, and have a wonderful day.

– Bar operators outside entertainment zones unhappy with opening hours
Khao San Road bar operators are less than happy that THEIR area is not registered as an entertainment  zone, meaning that the early morning extended opening hours that are expected to go into effect next month won’t apply to them.  The same call is coming from those outside the zoned areas in Pattaya,  but city fathers are determined to protect the peace of homeowners, which means that a small call for all licensed premises across the country to be afforded the same rights, isn’t likely to be taken seriously.

– Anti-scam hotline flooded with over 32,000 calls in 1st week
Over 2000 bank accounts have been frozen in a single week on the orders of the new Online Scam operation in Thailand, following 32,000 complaints in the same seven day period.  The operation, fathered by the ministry of digital economy and society , accepts public complaints from those who have been tricked online and reports that a request for an account closure by any bank in Thailand is now seeing them shut down within 15 minutes.  That alone is good news as in most cases the criminals are unaware that they are being caught, until it’s too late fot them to transfer the money.  Over 100 dedicated phone lines and a huge number of staff now answer calls quickly.  To call them, simply dial 1441.

– Tourist falls to his death from Bangkok BTS station

Police have still to publicly identify an Italian man who fell, of his own accord, from a station bridge in the capital.  With his details known to authorities, his embassy has been informed as a full autopsy was ordered for this week.

– Spanish tourist pleads not guilty in murder case
A Spanish man on trial for allegedly murdering his partner, a Colombian surgeon, has pleaded not guilty in court to the south of Thailand.   The 29 year old heir to a wealthy family denies murdering his erstwhile lover and a date will now be set for a full trial, as he remains in custody.

– Drunken soldier almost drowns after trying to show off to girlfriend
And Bangkok rescue teams were surprised when they got a call from a canalside venue, after a man was reported to be floundering in the water.  Seems the drunken off duty soldier was trying to impress his girl when he dove into the murky waters, seeing him in difficulty as he got caught up in the multitude of weeds, she called for help.  The less than sober lad begged the press not to name and shame him or give out his rank.

– Chinese police will not walk Thai streets, says Thai PM 
Meanwhile at home, it’s no surprise that plans announced earlier this week,  that Chinese police might be invited to work here, have been nixed.  Support from a few got their picture taken for the papers but reality is that there is little if any backing for the idea from anyone of influence. The region has a support system for Chinese nationals as it does for most foreigners with language barriers. To date, the policing system here has improved year on year for tourists and the number of foreign languages covered by those assisting police has increased too.   This as Thailand’s Prime minister made it clear yesterday that he had never given his support to the idea, despite other organizations using his name to promote the idea.

– Private boats stolen from boat storage company in Pattaya
Two private boat owners have made reports to Pattaya police after their vessels, stored for a fee, appear to have disappeared.   Police were due to investigate a boat storage business on Thepprasit road after owners noted that despite CCTV, someone had been allowed to take their boats away.  Both owners claim that the yard operator has been impossible to contact.
