– Police Chief Pol Gen Torsak recommended for reinstatement
It’s been recommended that the national police chief, Pol Gen Torsak, be reinstated as police chief following an inquiry into issues at the top of Thailand’s police force. The same committee could not recommend the same for his deputy, Big Joke Hakparn, because of another ongoing inquiry but did recommend that the Cabinet secretariat review the legality of the order that removed him. After four months, the committee published much of its findings, which include serious conflicts between the two and their supporters, essentially creating two vying sides, each out to put down the other. The committee was not set up to judge either man—that’s for the courts—but as its investigation is now complete, the committee has no objection to either being reinstated. Several outstanding high-profile cases were taken into consideration, and those cases are being investigated by other authorities. Either way, with Torsak due to retire in September, it’s anyone’s guess who will replace him as national police chief.

– Illegal cadmium waste returned to Tak
Four-fifths of the illegally moved and dumped cadmium waste, totaling 13,000 tonnes, has now been returned to its place of origin in Tak Province, according to authorities who have overseen the removal from dumps and stores across the country. With the balance due to be moved soon, found in Chonburi and Rayong provinces, all trucks were escorted by police to avoid incidents to an approved waste dump, as the operators still face court charges.

– PT Grand Prix of Thailand approved for October
Good news for fans of motorbike racing as the PT Grand Prix of Thailand has been approved for October 25 to 27 at the Chang International Circuit in Buriram. Last year’s event attracted some 180,000 people to the venue, and this year, they expect more.

– Man accuses nurse wife of ‘rough’ bedroom activities with hospital director
A 30-year-old Thai man has gone on record as declaring that his wife had cheated on him with her boss. He tracked her through her phone’s GPS and found that not only was she meeting up with the boss of the hospital where she works, but, according to him, they were mutually attracted by a common bond for flagellation and pain. Spotting video clips on her phone, he was less than happy and revealed his problem on social media, claiming, as he can, that he will sue the hospital director for adultery, a crime in Thailand. He wants compensation and has no interest in claiming the handcuffs, candles, or whips that the couple, according to him, are welcome to keep.

– Massive fire at Rayong electronics company
Meanwhile, in Rayong, a massive fire occurred at an electronics company mid-afternoon yesterday, seeing smoke filling the air and fire trucks racing to the scene. They were greeted by a fire believed to have been caused by faulty wiring, which took several hours to bring under control.

– Pattaya Police Station celebrates 40th anniversary
Pattaya police station celebrated its 40th birthday this week with monks attending a ceremony of thanks, attended by several dignitaries, including the city’s chief of police. Staff enjoyed a lunch, and locals passing by were given free food and drinks.

– Rare black panthers spotted in National Park
In Petchaburi, at the national park, officials have confirmed that a video clip taken by a tourist does show a pair of rare black panthers thought to be among a pride of similar ones living in the jungle areas. Taken from a car, the clip shows the cats unphased by humans, but rangers warned that approaching them is very dangerous, and if spotted, it is best to stay inside the vehicle.

– Construction company to be fined 114,000 baht/day for Pattaya roadwork delays
For the first time in recent years, the mayor has instructed his deputies to fine the construction company that has disrupted all with the late and still incomplete roadworks on the Sukhumvit near Pattaya Nua. Backdated to June 4, the company will lose 114,000 baht a day until the work is completed and inspected for satisfactory condition. With more closures and diversions in place causing chaos, the mayor was unamused, and the city hall legal team may also blacklist the contractors from future work.

– Korean falls from condo balcony in Sri racha
The Korean embassy has been informed of the sharp demise of one of its citizens in the city, as the 54-year-old is the latest to fall from a condo building balcony. Sri Racha authorities removed him from the scene as a full autopsy has been ordered.

– Pattaya International Pride Festival weekend in Pattaya
Today through Sunday is going to be chaotic along the beach area as the city hosts the Pattaya International Pride Festival, which includes a parade along the promenade before a party atmosphere outside Central Festival, which will go on late into the night. With popular singers and entertainers booked for the evening, the parade is set to start around three on Saturday.
