– Pyramid scheme scammer arrested 
After ten years on the run from police, the wife of one of the main players in the U Fun scam which duped thousands here into investing in fake funds has been arrested.  The 10 BILLION baht scam was closed down a decade ago, but saw the main organizers flee ahead of arrest, with 164 others actually arrested at the time, it was revealed that the pyramid scam offered herbal remedies along with a scam crypto currency which saw thousands more robbed of savings.

– British school teacher arrested for indecent acts with students 
In Pathum thani, police arrested a vile excuse for a human being, a British expat teacher who is accused of abusing young teen students in an International school where he was employed.  Other teachers heard children discussing his acts,  on at least 4 minor females and police were called. He is said to have admitted his crime and is unlikely to receive leniency.  The fee paying school did not hesitate to report the incidents and other students are currently being questioned to establish the extent of his crime.  The British embassy has been informed but he is out of luck if he expects any relief as their remit is to only ensure that an arrestee receives the same treatment as a local national would receive.

– 15 saved from sinking boat wreckage 
Trat authorities, the province adjacent to Koh Chang have reported that  the wreckage of a speed ferry saw marine teams rescuing passengers and crew after it struck a reef.   Found floating in the ocean, tired and scared, their saving was due to the vessel at least having the required number of lifejackets.

– Chaos at Bangkok Airport
Tourists who relished the idea of the automated immigration kiosks at BKK main airport were disappointed yesterday as technicians were called to try and recover the system which… crashed.   The new system which saves time, reduces queues and staffing instead caused chaos and a quick search for additional staff to step in and man the old booths.  The network, we are told, will be back in use within days and, its hoped, programming will be improved too

– Escaped pet lions run loose in Pattaya
As the saga of the poser and his lion continues to hit headlines, that’s the chap who regularly cruised the streets in a convertible with a fully grown lion aside him, yet another different case has been reported as a Huay yai woman coaxed her TWO lions back into her property after security gates failed and allowed them to .. roam the streets.  The mere idea that kings of the jungle, or in these cases queens, are allowed to be owned in insecure environments has raised eyebrows in parliament. In this case, the woman claims that she has reared them from cubs and even went on to state that they had become a part of the local community.  The locals within the community however had a difference of opinion.

– Street vendors nabbed for weed sales
Banglamung officials along with police have raided at least one group of street vendors selling marijuana on the streets from a market style stall.   Unlicenced, and breaking numerous IN EFFECT laws regarding ganga sales,  it’s expected that other vendors will be arrested too as the city clamps down on ganga touts.
