– Heavy storm warning for Thailand 
Despite those who told you otherwise, rain IS on the way to Thailand and is predicted to hit in the form of heavy storms, from early next week in our region and earlier, perhaps elsewhere.  With all hoping for a respite from the punishing heat, the Met Office predicts storms in the northeast and north from today through the weekend and here from, perhaps Monday.   That though will be a taster as the real monsoon season won’t start until the end of this month.

– Housekeeper to inherit 100 million baht from deceased expat
In Surat Thani, the housekeeper to a French expat lady is expected to inherit around 100 Million bahts worth of property and valuables after the lady amended her will, before taking her own life.  The French woman is thought to have had a fatal illness and prepared carefully for her demise, specifically excluding her ex-husband.  The 49-year-old maid had been in her service for 17 years and the death is not reported as suspicious.

– Arson suspected in warehouse fires across Thailand 
The chairman of a House committee has told the press that he is unconvinced that two separate fires at industrial storage areas were anything other than arson. The blunt statement follows a second fire, this time in Ayutthaya, following the long-burning former illegal waste disposal site in Rayong.   He went on to say that he thinks BOTH instances were caused by operators attempting to evade the law and the cost of efficient cleanups.  As in Rayong, the second site was closed down by officials who inspected it previously.

– Female Immigration officer transferred for taking bribes 
Accused of being an investor in an illegal gambling operation, alongside the wife of a senior policeman, a FEMALE Police lt colonel has been transferred to a non-active position as investigations are ramped up. Said to have been a senior inspector at Samut Prakan immigration station, the charges follow claims by a Thai tv investigation which went public with claims that she had also received bribes from immigration staff looking for promotions.

– ‘Mental health issues’ blamed for American vloggers rage 
The American former fitness instructor, Connor Murphy, found by police in Huay Yai smashing up his home, and girlfriend, with golf clubs is reported, in Thai media, to have had mental health issues and THAT has been partially blamed for his behaviour.   No word on how the young man remains here and on what type of visa.

– Expat vlogger’s past uncovered following series of groveling videos
This as the English self-proclaimed blogger, Tom G, in Pai, with just a handful of followers may also have ISSUES as he posted multiple groveling recordings yesterday all designed to charm local police into forgiving HIM for insults he was reported to have made in, now deleted, clips in the past.   Ticked off that the media has revealed his ISSUES, others are focusing on his past in the UK where he owned a pet hotel operation that, according to NATIONAL media there, closed down shortly after video clips revealed pet abuse by staff there.  He himself WASN’T accused of the abuse but as the operator, at the time, also spent his time excusing himself and.. making similar apologies.

– Late-night railway road accident in Pattaya
At 2 in the morning on the railway road yesterday, a Thai man, riding a big bike, was the latest to be hit by a car crossing, with the right of way.  The bike is said to have sped along the railway road, again presumably thinking he had the right of way. The impact though was enough to spin the car around.  The biker was rushed to hospital for urgent attention and the reminder, it may not be obvious, is that those CROSSING the railway road from side sois HAVE the right of way.

– Two men charged for luring young girls in Pattaya 
Two local Thai men are being charged with enticing a 14 and 16-year-old girl to join them in a search for a missing pal.  That was a ruse, however, and the two took advantage of the girls, leaving them in a derelict house and fleeing afterward.  The somewhat older men were known to the girls and had contacted them in the night via a messaging app, later threatening them if they went to the authorities. NOW, BEGGING them NOT to press charges, and crying that they may face 10 years behind bars, the girl’s mother refuses to budge, and both face jail.

– French fishing group stranded on local Thai island 
When a group of French rugby players went out alone on a spearing and fishing trip on Wednesday, they were later missed on shore by their pals.  Seems their boat wasn’t properly secured as they all swam and with no one left on board, it drifted miles away leaving them.. stranded.  Luckily, nearby was a small island, and reaching that, they assessed their situation.  No phone, no food, and evening approaching, it was a dry night on the sands until pals took to the water to find them.  With their boat discovered near Sriracha, concern grew until the group was spotted and recovered.  Word is.. they will take more care IF they ever venture out alone again.
