– Thai airport passengers advised to arrive 3 hours early
Thai media reports that passengers flying from the main airport should allow plenty of time upon arrival, perhaps three hours instead of two, as new passport control channels are being set up and tested. These channels are expected to speed up departures once in effect. The project is anticipated to be completed before June 4th.

– Police rescue three Indonesian men held for ransom in Thailand
In the south of Thailand, three Indonesian men were rescued in a police operation this week. They were held in a house, where they were beaten and filmed. A demand was sent to one of the victims’ sisters in Indonesia for 3 million baht. Despite delaying, she transferred 800,000 baht and informed the police, who coordinated with authorities. Three suspects are now in custody.

– Prime Minister orders inquiry into activist’s demise after hunger strike
Thailand’s Prime Minister has ordered an inquiry into the death of a 28-year-old political activist who passed away earlier in the week in a prison hospital ward. The activist had previously been on a hunger strike but had received hospital treatment and feeding, seemingly recovering. However, it’s expected that an autopsy will reveal irreparable organ damage due to the self-enforced starvation.

– Elderly man faces charges for brutal knife attack on friend
In Udon Thani, an 86-year-old man is expected to be charged with the brutal stabbing of his former friend. The altercation occurred during a drinking session where the younger man showed disrespect. Despite his age, the elder stayed at the scene when authorities arrived. Locals claim he was usually of better temperament.

– Tuk-Tuk Driver fined for overcharging tourist 
A tuk-tuk driver in the capital who overcharged a Japanese tourist has been suspended from work and fined 2,500 baht this week. The driver charged the tourist 6,000 baht for a short trip from Sukhumvit Soi 18 to the Silom area. The Land Transport Department became aware of the incident after the travelers shared their experience. The driver was called in for an inquiry and admitted to the scam.

– Hospital director under investigation for attack on child
Representatives of a 14-year-old schoolboy are demanding that police charge a Bangkok hospital director after he admitted to slapping the child across the face and forcing him to walk out of the facility without clothing. This incident occurred because the teen was caught smoking in a restroom. Initially, the boy was taken to the reception area and asked to pay a fine of 5,000 baht. However, staff held him until the director arrived, who then assaulted him before demanding he remove his clothing. Once outside, the teen called for help. Media reports indicate that the director plans to increase the fine to 50,000 baht and admits to the assault, claiming it was to teach the boy a lesson.

– Heroin found in Slushie dispensers 
Taiwanese drug dealers won’t be receiving slushies, as Thai police seized drink slush dispensers en route to Taiwan after finding 40 bars of heroin hidden inside. This attempt to disguise drugs failed, and those responsible face imminent arrest.

– BEWARE: Driving license SCAM targets foreigners in Thailand
If you’re in need of a Thai driving license, beware of a growing scam targeting foreigners through social media. Facebook is filled with adverts promising licenses without visiting the licensing center. These accounts are fake and easily recognizable due to their lack of history. The method typically involves a link to an online account to apply, which is a scam. Legitimate services exist that can assist with the application process legally. Numerous people have reported being scammed, and complaints are set to be registered with the police.
