Election Commission warns of jail terms for false allegations
As The Election Commission issued a warning that fake allegations made against prospective members of parliament could result in jail terms, it has now certified all 500 elected MPs as fit for duty, meaning that a house sitting of representatives MUST be held within two weeks FROM today.  Another step forward toward a new government in Thailand for sure BUT with a codicil  which clarifies that the ED reserves the authority to investigate any further allegations against any elected member, were sufficient evidence supplied alongside it,  and that some investigations remain underway, specifically against the elected leader of the winning future forward party.   In all a reported 71 MP electors have seen objections filed against their appointment but many if not all have been filed through bitterness as opposed to claims backed with evidence.

Thailand hosts meeting with Myanmar’s generals
Stirring a little unrest with some Asean countries, Thailand began a short series of meetings with Burmese authorities here in the capital, with the expectation that they would be joined by some from 5 other countries.  Despite the current government here being of the caretaker type, discussions were set to discuss the situation within Myanmar, an issue close to Thailand’s heart as the two countries share a common 2,500 KM border, much of which is open land.

The reported 140 Million baht extorted from a criminal gang, paid in order that charges against them for online gambling has, according to Pol general Hakparl.  The number of Senior Police in Chonburi charged with involvement has risen to 10, with many having admitted their involvement and, as a result, making statements which will no doubt implicate others.  8 top Chonburi cops, including the former regional chief, face charges alongside 2 senior members of the Cyber Crime Investigation bureau. Three civilians, also involved, and residents of the Pattaya region are on the run, homes have been raided here but nothing close to the amount has been recovered.

Public Warehouse Organisation chief investigated for missing tapioca
A tundra in the tapioca business has been publicized this week as the anti corruption commission is looking to claims that the former boss of the state warehousing assn. setup to store tapioca and other goods bought by the government at better prices from farmers to support the agricultural industry, may be involved in a scam that saw quality tapioca sold on at a profit, and subsequently replaced with sub standard product to fool auditors.   30,000 tonnes of the root cant be accounted for.

Sea Horse Ferry to undergo maintenance 
Meanwhile at home and the Sea Horse ferry service, now becoming a popular trip, Koh samui from our region goes for service and maintenance from the 4th to the 12 of July.  Service will only be suspended for that week and bookings are available online for all other weeks.  Owners of the blue dolphin ferry advise that with passenger comfort and safety their priority, semi annual inspections are a key part of their operation

Russian drink-&-dasher beaten by foreigners, not Pattaya bouncers
The fight outside a Walking St nightclub has been investigated BY police following claims that club security gave a Russian, who refused to pay his bill, a serious bashing.  CCTV clearly shows a NON Thai swiping the 33 yr old, his pals retaliating  and the security team actually trying to placate the two parties.    All over a bill of less than 2000 baht. The fight between the bill skippers and others escalated but prior to that security is seen TALKING to the man, and trying to persuade him to do the decent thing.  With his face now ever so slightly rearranged, he is now likely wishing he had complied.

‘We were only borrowing’ say Pattaya teenage motorbike thieves 
When a local thai hoodlum stole a ladies motorbike from outside her room, he didn’t bank on her friends and neighbours rallying round to ride the town in search of him.  The 16 year old was spotted outside a south Pattaya market, police were called and as he and his pals fled to hide in the temple area so they were routed out, one by one. The errant thieves claimed that they had only borrowed the bike and planned to put it back.  That, would of course have been minus the ignition lock that was forced and the plates that were thrown away.
