VERY LATEST NEWS FROM THAILAND in English (19 July 2023) from Fabulous 103fm Pattaya

– Passengers stranded as Koh Chang ferry breaks down mid-sea
This week saw a ferry en route to the island of Ko Chang break down amid heavy winds, and with 30 on board, along with 17 passenger vehicles. THEY called for help seeing the The Royal Thai Navy rescue the passengers after a 6 hour ordeal. The early morning sailing left port without incident but it is believed that the propellers were fouled with discarded fishing nets. All passengers were recovered, none injured and taken to the shoreline as the ferry was recovered too, and towed in, complete with all vehicles on board.

– Cops caught on video abducting & extorting Thai woman
Arrests of local police officers have already taken place in Kalasin province where a wiley woman used her phone to secretly record her abduction by 5 men who falsely accused her of drug possession and relieved her of 50K baht. The issue was reported to regional top cops by the station commander when it was brought to HIS attention and all 5 men have been identified. They had searched her home and then taken her outside ordering her to point at a paper envelope, something she refused to do as they wanted to photograph her as evidence. Instead they demanded the cash but were so busy with their financial discussions that they overlooked the fact that she had her phone recording the whole time.

– Thailand to hold second vote for PM today
As Thailand today, Wednesday, will discover the outcome of K Pita’s second attempt toward becoming PM in a parliamentary vote, so comments from foreign politicians are seen as less than helpful, basically as, clearly, it’s none of their business. Media has been busy quoting an American politician which of course only goes to enrage anyone he disagrees with. REALITY, is that today may not see a confirmed PM, or indeed it might. If not, then new choices will likely be announced.

– Diesel subsidies ending tonight
Diesel subsidies end tomorrow pushing up the price of commercial fuel for heavy goods vehicles and with it the cost of freight. The oil fuel fund office has to date kept prices lower than in other countries in order that freight costs remain controlled but the 5 baht discount deal ends tonight at midnight.

– Bangkok governor’s son apologizes for anti Move Forward Party post
While Bangkok’s governor is held in high regard by most Thais, and has worked toward progress in the capital, his 23 year old errant son let the side down this week, posting on social media that move forward supporters are “bratty teenagers” . The post was removed after instead of the adoration he expected, he was derided by readers who were unimpressed with personal belief that social change and law amendment should take a back seat to the economy. Within hours, he humbly apologized saying he regretted the content of the post in such a way that many believe he was dragged over the coals by his much respected father.

– Heavy storms & floods hit Thailand
Locally, the city and region was deluged by storms this morning, Wednesday, seeing power cuts and temporary but heavy flooding in much of the region. The outlook for today is continued storms at any time and combined with high winds the weather has seen a warning for small boats to remain on the shoreline. Areas with roadworks, which of course is much of the region, are best avoided as in many cases drains don’t work and rain water has flooded into dug out areas and areas used by vehicles as a temporary road surface.
