– Police Civil Service Commission debates Big Joke’s investigation
Yesterday afternoon, according to Thai media, a meeting of the Police Civil Service Commission, headed by the PM, convened to debate the findings of a subcommittee investigating Deputy Thai Police Chief Hakparn. With Hakparn, nicknamed Big Jock or Joke, suspended from his work, he had previously told the media that he would sue unless he had a fair hearing.

– Thai teacher arrested for illicit videos involving pupils
Following complaints from parents, the music teacher at a well-known Bangkok public school was detained by police yesterday, who subsequently discovered numerous illicit video clips on his phone involving pupils. At least one mother complained to authorities, with one telling the press that her son had been offered extra lessons over a period of 2 years, which had involved abuse. With a teaching history at the school of over 8 years, police have asked any other victims to come forward, and they can legally be interviewed anonymously. The teacher confessed, according to police reports, after being told that the video clips had been found, and also admitted to using violence to force his young victims to comply.

– School officials arrested for embezzling student lunch & supply funds
In Hat Yai, four people, including a school headmaster, have been arrested on charges of pilfering funds given to the school for student lunches and supplies. Teachers noticed that plates of food given out were becoming smaller and smaller, and others noticed a lack of new textbooks. This was reported to the regional education offices, who, in turn, involved the police. The headmaster, along with two deputy heads and a budget manager, are said to have siphoned off significant amounts of cash, including close to 25% of the food budget.

– Thaksin ‘only joking’ about being assistant, says daughter
Thaksin’s daughter, Pheu Thai leader Paytongtan, told the press yesterday that her father’s words shouldn’t be taken literally. This follows the former ailing ex-premier’s statement at a party training academy that he was prepared to work as her assistant. The family has a history of planting stories, which are then refuted quickly but later come to pass, leading to concerns that his grip on the party is tightening. This followed a separate warning from the Election Commission forbidding Thaksin from any control of the party or its efforts as he is not a party member. Pheu Thai, which runs the government despite losing the election, is seen as a splintered group with strong links to the old Red Shirt party of her father, which no longer officially exists. PM Tavisn has done much to separate himself and lead his government in a different direction.

– Expat arrested for illegal barbering on Thai island
Something for the weekend turned into a fiasco in Koh Phangan, where a Swiss expat who had owned a barbershop for over 8 years was arrested. He could not legally cut hair as that is a restricted trade here. Nevertheless, he did so regularly until locals reported him. The 51-year-old was arrested this week while cutting hair and now faces deportation or at the very least a heavy fine.

– Bali Hai Waterfront cleanup and improvements underway
Amid promises that the planned covered docks at Bali Hai, complete with landside public conveniences and a full tidy-up, would be reinforced, city hall teams began the cleanup of the waterfront this week. Tons of garbage and rocks were removed in the first step to beautify the port entrance. Cabling is to be tidied up too, and the press was told that the covered and more attractive alterations to the jetty and the landside improvements would be completed this summer.

– Petty thief’s accomplice arrested while visiting jailed friend
When a petty thief was caught by police, he was duly thrown into the cells as his case began to be processed. Despite his numerous past residences, his most recent was checked, and much of his recent haul was discovered. Feeling sorry for him, his accomplice went to visit him in the station cells. Officers noticed that she was wearing goods listed as stolen, so the couple was reunited on a more permanent basis as she too was arrested and detained.

– Tourist caught squatting in Pattaya hotel
One local hotel operator is very ticked off with a western tourist believed to be British. He had stayed at her hotel before but this time sneaked in, stole a key, and made himself at home in a vacant room without paying. Sunning himself on the balcony, he seemed oblivious to her screaming at him from a neighboring room until she told him she would call the police. No word on where he slept last night.
