VERY LATEST NEWS FROM THAILAND in English (25 August 2023) from Fabulous 103fm Pattaya

– WANTED German biker arrested 
In the border regions, a 50 year old German member of a biker gang was being held by police yesterday following a request from his home country.  Seems the heavily tattooed man has already been found guilty of Grievous bodily harm before fleeing his homeland. Extradition has been approved and he is expected to be deported within a week.

– Plot thickens in love triangle knife attack
Yesterday’s news of a woman stabbing her errant husband’s mistress in the street has taken a new twist as the husband came forward to give his side of the tale.  Seems, according to him, he had an arrangement with his wife that he would fund her to the tune of 400 baht a day, but that he would be .. free as a bird  to do what he wanted.  He went on to say that he hadn’t realised his latest mia noi was actually married, still, to a husband who knew nothing of the tryst.   He doesn’t plan to elope with the girlfriend though, as she is expected to return to her husband.  The wife?  Well, she faces charges of attempted murder.

– New prime minister Srettha meets PM Gen Prayut
Quick political overview from yesterday – The incoming PM met with the outgoing for a chat and to update each other with plans for the smooth transition.  Previously, PM Gen Prayut met with military heads as this week, NEW heads of each of the three arms of forces were appointed.    The last bastion of significant authority in parliament for the election winning Move forward party is likely to be eradicated soon.  As THEY set to become the major opposition party, that too excludes their appointed deputy speaker from being in office, under parliamentary regulations.  The original appointment of the house speaker was an issue during the short and less than sweet time of Pheu Thai and Move forward working together, and ended in a delay that saw each party nominate a deputy speaker.   He, Khun Padipat, told the press he was happy to remain in office and be impartial but also ready to accept any decision made by his party regarding his tenure.

– Thais warned of fake benefits app
In other news, the ministry of digital economy and society has requested google remove a rogue phone app that purports to be an approved digital wallet, as used by the state to dole out benefits in Thailand.  With the promise that early next year Thais will all get 10K baht credit VIA a digital wallet, that they can then use to buy staple goods and fuel within their own locality, NO digital app has yet been approved.

– Chiang Mai airport to undergo expansion 
Chiang mai airport is the attest to see plans for expansion.  A 10 year plan has been announced that will see it able to service 20 million passengers a year and receive more flights from overseas.  With many tourists now WANTING to visit the northern region, MOST  currently take second flights from BKK.   Already Thailand’s fourth largest airport, handling 10 million passengers annually, Chiang mai is increasingly popular with Asian visitors.

– Rental home gutted by tourist
And on Phuket, a local man who owned his own nicely finished home rented it to a Ukrainian,  only for him to get it back, minus a complete fitted furnishing project that included bedroom and living area.  Stripped of everything and with damage throughout, the man has, according to the media,  reported his ex tenant to police for criminal damage.  No word on whether the Ukrainian is still in the country but if he is.. He faces a huge bill for reparations.

– ‘Girl scout’ karaoke hostesses fined 100 baht
Meanwhile at home and in Sattahip district, staff at a local karaoke caused concern as they dressed.. as girl scouts for either a party or promotion.  Someone took photos and others derided them for bringing the scouts into disrepute.  A little known law exists, the Scouting act of Thailand, brought in to protect it, was invoked by many who think that article 69 bans the wearing of the uniform by any other than genuine scouts.  BUT, it read that the wearing of the uniform IN ORDER TO deceive others into thinking you are a scout.. is illegal.  Whilst it’s hardly likely that a bunch of so-called pretties from a local bar were attempting to impersonate for gain.. they were duly fined 100 baht each and apologized.

– Dangerous & poorly lit roadworks result in numerous after-dark accidents 
And concern has again been raised regarding roadworks left without any form of lighting at night.  Chaiyapruek 2 is a prime example where kilometers of roadway is under construction with just concrete blocks and flimsy poles to mark off the dug out areas.  In some cases, in fact for much of it there are no working streetlights on one side and only a few on the other.    This week has seen several accidents in our region where drivers simply haven’t been aware of roadworks and, as a result been injured and seen vehicles damaged.
