VERY LATEST NEWS FROM THAILAND in English (28 June 2023) from Fabulous 103fm Pattaya

– Cyanide Sara loses baby in prison, lawyer plans legal action
Cyanide sara, Thailand’s most prolific of modern day poisoners plans to file charges against those who arrested her. Her lawyers have told the press that the woman, real name Sara rat, miscarried her unborn child and they claim THAT was due to stress caused by her arrest and subsequent imprisonment. She was diagnosed with toxemia, and hospitalised at the time and following her loss was put back into the prison system. She is unlikely to reap much sympathy as she faces charges of feeding cyanide to some 16 victims for financial gain.

– Dissent between Thai political parties hoped to be resolved this week
The Pheu Thai party, which came second in the national elections, is expected to insist on an equal number of parliament seats to that of the winning Move forward party AND control of the speaker position, second only to that of the PM. With the previous reports indicating that the matter had long been settled between the two, the issues have raised their ugly heads above the otherwise good news that parliament SHOULD be in operation sooner than expected. Either way the matter will be mooted by the two this week and an outcome published by Friday. Pua Thai has, according to many, yet to recover from being beaten in the elections by what is seen by many as an upstart party but recognized by the majority as those who best represent the current feel within the population.

– Over 9.3 million people cleared from police criminal record files
Over 9 million people have seen their names expunged from police records, according to the deputy national police chief. Most are those who were arrested, even charged but subsequently found not guilty or saw charges dropped. Others with minor infractions will also end up with clean rap sheets too. In addition to reducing the size of the police database, which may or may not be a good thing, the changes will allow those people to apply for travel documents and employment where police reports are required and could, otherwise, have seen them turned down for approval. By year end, we are told to expect a national website that would allow members of the public to check their own records with the police, quite how that will be secured has yet to be explained as access to 3rd and 2nd party records would have to be blocked. Those with pending charges, on bail or currently within the prison system will in no way benefit.

– Embassy issues press release regarding overstaying Brits
The British Embassy has issued a press release acknowledging that ‘many’, their word not ours, ‘many’ British tourists have violated Thai immigration laws by overstaying on vsas in the past 5 years, later on in the statement they replace the word ‘MANY’ with ‘several’ as they go on to say that Thailand has instigated a tougher clamp down on overstayers. Reality, although not written in the report, is that embassies cannot get you out of jail here, that’s not their remit. If you break Thai law, then you are treated as a local national. Overstayers are housed in the less than welcoming immigration detention centres until they pay fines and pay for single tickets home, and that often sees people detained for elongated periods of time as neither they nor their families want to stump up the cash. The embassy can only contact their family members if requested and cannot fund the cost of their folly.

– Pattaya Mayor agrees with public opinion on roadworks
Meanwhile at home and Pattaya’s mayor has acknowledged complaints about the centre reservation along Thepprasit road yesterday. In a statement HE said that after reviews he had ordered the addition of a total of 6 U turn points along the road which would reduce congestion and allow drivers to turn back or right BUT that the centre reservation will stay in place as it is designed to reduce accidents. Locals complain that even the existing u turn points are too narrow for many vehicles to turn without making a three point turn, causing tailbacks AND that due to turning points and delays, the road is effectively a single and not a dual carriageway AS the centre lanes are fast becoming turning lanes.

– Local motorcycle taxi driver returns lost 100,000 baht
Well done to a local motorcycle taxi driver who went to the Pattaya Police Station yesterday to turn in a bag left by a passenger that contained US dollars to the tune of 100K baht. Had he not done so, the chances of the owner ever seeing his cash again were minute HOWEVER, the diligent 62 year old was proud to return the bag, first reporting it to the police at the station and then seeing it returned to the owner who later turned up to report his loss. No word on reward but let’s hope it was a generous one .
