– Former PM Thaksin supports current PM amid constitutional court inquiry
Formerly exiled and jailed PM Thaksin Shinawatra has publicly given his support to Thailand’s PM, Thavisin, who faces a possible inquiry by the constitutional court into the appointment of a now-disposed-of MP to a ministerial position, which dozens of politicians claim he was not fit to take. This comes as Thaksin’s daughter, swiftly raised to head of the ruling Pua Thai party, told the press she hopes Thavisin’s responses to complaints are successful, as she isn’t ready to become a PM yet. In a nation where denials and negatives suddenly become positives overnight, many are suggesting that she is waiting in the wings.

– Bail granted for entertainer found guilty of violating Thai Royal Family laws
Lawyers successfully petitioned for bail for a Thai entertainer and one other found guilty this week of violating several laws, including the strict laws on respect for the Thai royal family. If an appeal doesn’t work, the new sentence of 4 years in jail will go into effect. Courts saw proof that they had set fire to pictures of HM the King, which is unacceptable under Thai laws that protect the monarchy as it itself will never respond to abuse.

– Thai authorities delay SIM card shutdown to combat online fraud
Until yesterday, the plan was to close down millions of SIM cards that are in use, being used for internet banking, but where the number is not registered with banks to link to an individual and their accounts. The move was intended to reduce online fraud, but the Office of the National Broadcasting and Telecommunication Commission announced on Monday that the shutdown will be delayed to allow users to register their phone numbers with financial institutions ahead of a shutdown, perhaps later. Aside from scammers, NBTC received complaints from parents who register SIMs and give them to their children, along with others who register for the elderly. This swayed the commission to now effect a different plan, which will see cards used for scamming reported to them and sent to banks for banks to decide on what they want to do. SIMs are often sold by poorer people to users who pay for them, and even bank accounts, to use to wash money obtained through fraud.

– Husband complains to Thai minister as wife falls in love with ‘swinger’ friend
A husband has complained to a Thai minister after enjoying habitual swingers’ parties with his wife until she fell for one of her party conquests. It seems the husband didn’t mind sharing but did mind the man, a senior civil servant, giving his wife gifts and meeting secretly. As the new male friend gave her gifts, including a high-end car, the husband posted his woes in the swingers’ social media group, which, we are told, has now closed down as members feared that their neighbors might discover their penchant for sharing. She has stated that she has moved on for a better quality of life. No word on her new boyfriend’s previous or current partner.

– UPDATE on Brits violently attacked by Soi 6 security guards
Meanwhile, those aggressive goons working as security in Pattaya’s Soi 6 area? Well, they were hauled in for questioning yesterday, with three men pictured in an interview at the police station, one with band-aids on his nose and chin—an interesting choice as photos on his own Facebook showed his chin just fine—but that was to boost his claim that he reacted as opposed to acted. Either way, with photo evidence of the three British men who were involved in the vicious altercation leaving the soi without any help, it seems the men got a ticking off and then went back to work. With social media awash with claims that the man worst beaten, finally kicked in the head by the vicious man in black, had died, true media waited for genuine proof, not hearsay. And it seems the gossip was incorrect. What is correct though is that the video clips of the vicious beating have hit international news globally, leaving many locals demanding that the issue be properly resolved and the team of goons not allowed to work as they do without fear of arrest. As for the Brits, well, it seems they all have families, and being outed as drunk, stupid, and in a house of very little if any repute is something they have to explain to their, until now, loved ones. Pattaya’s police chief heard their claims that “we didn’t start it, mister,” which, while passable in a school playground, really shouldn’t be passable here.

– British man charged for death of Russian man at Pattaya house party
A 35-year-old British man, Ricki Williams, is in custody this morning, having been charged with causing the demise of a 36-year-old Russian man at a party. Medics were called to a villa at 3 in the morning, only to find the Russian unresponsive. Rushed to hospital, he passed away there under medical supervision. He had been punched once, but then hit his head as he fell to the ground. Violent for sure, but in a twist, the Brit and others claim that the Russian had been making advances to the Englishman’s daughter, wife, or both, suggesting that they take a night together. 35-year-old Williams is thought to have told the man to stop several times before landing the blow, which saw him fall. As the Russian was carted away, the party ended, and he returned to his Sattahip home, unaware that the Russian had died, but where he was later arrested.

– Thai Pugilist celebrates Manchester United win with food giveaway
Football, called soccer in the US, is a favorite here in Thailand, and in Pattaya, one well-known pugilist paid for and gave away 1000 pork sticks and hundreds of packs of rice to celebrate Manchester United’s FA Championship win. He had promised his followers on social media that if his favorite team came out on top, he would celebrate with all, giving out the food. Seems he is keeping his promise.
