– Hakparn ‘Big Joke’ files complaint over ‘unfair’ suspension
The continuing saga of the suspension of deputy police chief Hakparn continued yesterday, as he took a swipe at the latest moves made by authorities which have, according to him, effectively blocked him from becoming the nation’s next police chief.   Previously MOVED to a side position, he has not been suspended after being transferred BACK to the police force. And as a result, he has filed a complaint with the Office of the National Anti-Corruption Commission on Monday.  An investigation into corruption which saw his name mentioned is underway, and was initially set to be completed within 2 months – so end of May, HOWEVER, according to him, better known as Big jock or joke, there appeared to be an organised movement to persecute him, and, despite being the most senior of the candidates who could succeed the current chief, moves are underway to see that that doesn’t happen. Hakparn had, to date, often been the poster boy for modern and fair policing but had, in the past, also faced claims which were proven to be unwarranted.

– Heatwave continues as temperatures rise in Thailand 
The hot weather, way above normal, is predicted to increase and continue around the nation with some hotspots reporting 43 degrees yesterday.  This was confirmed along with warnings to wear head protection, especially if riding a bike of any kind, AND to consume plenty of water as dehydration for many has become an issue.   With no real sign of respite, it is a matter of adopt and adapt for all.

– Don Mueang Airport recognized in top ten budget airline terminals 
Don Mueang International Airport has been recognized as one of the top ten budget airline terminals globally, with Paris coming top, and Japanese landing spots taking second and third position. GOOD news though for the former main airport, now modernized and popular on short haul flights, and good news too for travellers who had previously derided the facilities which now, we are told, are top notch.

– Topless & potless foreign woman causes a stir at Thai resort 
Topless and potless, a Portuguese woman wandered around a Phuket resort this week in just a skirt, refusing to pay her bills or leave.  Seems she has a habit of running up bills and refusing to pay them and has hit other hotels and guesthouses in the past.  Word is that her family have repeatedly tried to entice her back to her homeland, and that to date, she has refused.. likely now, she will have no choice.

– Locals evacuated following chemical explosion at illegal warehouse 
Meanwhile at home and in Rayong, a fire at a chemical warehouse saw locals evacuated yesterday following explosions heard within the industrial waste facility.  From 9 in the morning, 4 dozen rescue workers struggled alongside 16 fire engines to contain the blaze as it spread to other buildings AND neighbouring croplands.  With no casualties reported,  the warehouse is reported to have held some 20K litres of solvents alongside open storage of contaminated oil products, this as the secretary for public health stated that the companies licence has been revoked, no word for how long and investigation begins.

– Teens hit by minivan while giving ride to blind person
When 2 local teenagers stopped to offer a ride to a blind person, they rode slowly to take her home, only to be hit by a passing minivan, leaving all three with injuries.  The minivan driver claims that they weaved in front of him, CCTV is being checked and as it happened at an intersection, it’s likely that the matter can be speedily resolved.

– Elderly foreigner hit by SUV on Pattaya railway crossing
A local 73 yr old swiss man was reported to have been critically injured after being hit by an Isuzu SUV at the Khao Talo railtrack crossing.  Riding an increasingly popular motorized tricycle he was seen on CCTV clearly riding with the right of way when the SUV hit him. Seemingly, the driver had full insurance which WOULD compensate if the SUV is deemed to be in the wrong.  The bill, though, had risen quickly to over 200K baht and according to his friends, the local police have yet to release their findings on who was in the wrong. That though, is expected to be rectified this week.

– Live M26 grenade found in Pattaya Residential Area
KUDOS to The Chonburi Provincial Explosive Ordnance Disposal Team, called in by local police after a lemon grenade was discovered in grass at a local housing area. The M26 was in tip top condition, which worried many as its assumed someone dumped it out of fear of it being found, but with the pin still in position, it was safe, and the team duly disposed of it, and the advisory to locals is to keep an eye out as if there are others, which is unlikely, they shouldn’t be payed with.
