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

– 2nd PM vote may see delays as complaints filed 
Today sees the 8 parties that CURRENTLY intend to remain a coalition discuss plans for the upcoming PM vote on Thursday in parliament. This amid the previously reported controversies that saw the leader of winning Move forward party blocked from being PROPOSED for a previous vote based on a legal parameter set up for parliamentary proposals which NOW in itself has come into question.   Despite street demonstrations, politely and in a well behaved manner protesting against the unelected senators who nixed K Pita’s nomination, it appeared and still does appear that the latest plan is for second place taker Pheu Thai to grab the reins and run for the top job.  That, though, in itself, now is seeing a hitch, as ‘the ’ secretary-general of the Office of the Ombudsman, told the ress that at least 17 complaints have been filed with them, objecting to the decision AND that some if not all those complaints came from groups or multiple complainants.  As a result, that office has asked the Constitutional court to delay the Prime Ministerial vote on Thursday until it has ruled on the objections AS any decision that COULD be made on Thursday COULD ALSO become ineffective. Yes, if you are following this you are doing well, its been and remains the most complex of chess games in modern political times for sure, reality is that strings are being pulled on both sides, and it remains to be seen who has the strongest pull.  Pheu Thai  is determined to take control, even at the cost of breaking part of its election pledge NOT to work with those who were a part of the coup or previous military run governments. Having said that, Thailand is in sore need of a new and legal government and on that at least, supporters of both sides agree.

– Chinese Man nabbed for smuggling Ice at Bangkok airport 
This week has seen a chinaman nabbed at the main airport reportedly a methamphetamine importer and wanted in his own country.  Reports indicate that he was part of a gang that imported drugs INTO Thailand by sea. He was spotted sitting pensively waiting for his plane to depart, and was said to be in shock when arrested.  Now facing charges here, once those are dealt with, he will be handed over to Chinese authorities.

– Former British expat & Kids’ entertainer jailed for 30 years 
A former British expat, 57 year old Paul Mckee from the wirral has been sented in the UK to 30 yrs in jail following a court hearing that was told that, the now convicted child molester, had moved here, settled with a local woman who had born him a child whilst he worked somehow as a teacher.  Caught and deported at the end of last year, he was convicted of 13 cases which took place over 24 yrs prior to his fleeing to Thailand.   Described by the judge as a predator, the former childrens entertainer was also described as manipulative, controlling and violent.  Whilst tribute was paid to those victims willing to come forward in the case.

– Army chief monitors flood situation in Rayong
Meanwhile at home and in Rayong province army chefs inspected operations there that have worked diligently to clear flood water which have swept many parts of the province and remained in homes and streets. Drainage pumps were organized and sluices opened to allow a greater flow of drain water.  With canals at overflow pont in some areas, more is being done and the military teams will remain for some while.

– Pattaya home owners become islanders as single road to estate destroyed 
Civil engineers who ripped up both sides of a narrow lane out near Hua Yai are being criticized by locals and expats who have become islanders thanks to another botched construction project.  Once a poorly maintained concrete road, their estate of houses, along with a local business that is popular with expats are now an island surrounded by mud. The road, now closed off and barriered is the ONLY access to the houses and none of the residents can get out unless they are prepared to wade through the filth. With the speed of repair in the region at a slug speed regularly, locals are appealing to Nongprue municipality to intervene and help.

– Cocky Thai man nabbed for flashing in public & selling pics online
And in Bangkok a virtual flasher has been nabbed after being spotted taking selfies of himself in public, flashing.  Weird?  It gets weirder as he then sold the snapshots online. The cocky Thai thought he would never get caught – he got that wrong as he was arrested yesterday.

– 11 injured in firework factory explosion 
An explosion at a fireworks factory in Chiang mai province shocked locals as the lot went up.  Sadly, eleven people including children were injured as damage spread to a wide area.  With stocks of powder remaining in the damaged building, the site has been declared a local disaster zone and neighbors moved for their own safety.
