– Former PM Thaksin to Face Lese Majeste and computer crime charges
The Attorney-General intends to indict former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra on lese majeste and computer crime charges resulting from interviews given ten years ago. Now recovered and appearing fit following his term in a police hospital after his return to Thailand, Thaksin’s hearing has been delayed by courts after his lawyer claimed that the former PM has COVID-19. With his family firmly entrenched in Thai politics and his own re-emergence as a de facto advisor to the PM, his lawyer is quoted as saying that he will fight the charges and prove his client innocent.

– Thailand Plans Formula 1 racetrack near U-Tapao Airport
Thailand’s PM Tavisit has launched a plan to create a Formula 1 racetrack adjacent to the region’s U-Tapao Airport. With hopes of international support, the plan would offer easy access from abroad for fans and competitors, and there is a chance that Thailand could host F1 races as soon as 2027.

– Chinese Passport forger arrested in Bangkok
A Chinese man has been taken away for questioning by Thai authorities after living in the capital. It seems he was a key player in a gang that forged passports back in China, and arrest warrants were issued for him by Thai courts mid-last month. Using a fake nationality and passport himself, it was confirmed that he is actually Chinese and a member of a gang that aided illegal travel to Thailand for others, all for a fee.

– Expat arrested for delivering narcotics in toy cars
A toy car headed in the mail to Cambodia but seized by postal officials led to the arrest this week of a 39-year-old Frenchman who had mailed it under a false name after filling it with cocaine. Now charged with drug trafficking, he claims it was his first offense. Thai police won’t be taking that into account, though, and he likely faces several decades in jail. As Cambodian authorities seek his pal, listed as the recipient, he stated, “This was my first time sending the package, and I didn’t think the police would track me down.”

– Kangaroo on the loose in Thailand
In Chiang Mai, they are looking for Skippy. Proof positive, via video shots, a lone kangaroo has been spotted in the lanes leading to the famous Soi Suthep mountain area. Authorities hope to catch it amid claims that it may have escaped from a zoo. But with no missing roo reports to go on, they are more concerned that it may be hit by a vehicle.

– British tourist files complaint after vicious Soi 6 beating
Royal Thai Police, along with local Pattaya forces, continue to investigate the vicious beating given to two errant British tourists who, it’s clearly been revealed, started a fight in a Soi 6 bar. That aside, the beating given by an unregistered and unlicensed self-appointed security force in the soi was beyond acceptable. With them now supposedly blocked from working the soi, this week has seen 43-year-old Bryce Mahony, the man who ended up worse for wear in the fight, registering a complaint with police. With one of his then drinking partners already having left the city, allegedly in fear of his own safety, Mahony, still bearing bruises from the altercation, told that there had been an altercation inside the bar resulting from a dispute over a bar bill, and it’s clear, again from CCTV, that he, at least, had egged the bar minder on with taunts to try it with him, which they duly did. Mahony, seen in video as taking a serious kick to the head as a final blow in the fight, appeared to be more than recovered.

– Welshman arrested for fatal punch outed by estranged family
A Welshman arrested in Thailand accused of causing the death of a Russian businessman with a single punch that caused him to fall on concrete appears to have been outed by his own family back home, who have told the press that the 34-year-old had recently asked them for loans to stay here but had burned bridges with most after being jailed in the UK for drug possession with intent to sell. With immigration restrictions here on anyone with a criminal record from abroad, that alone may affect his long-term plans. Family members claim that on his release from jail he planned to come here for a fresh start, but that while he does have a daughter, his daughter remains in the UK, and family there is unaware of him having a wife here. With zero support from his estranged family in the UK, it’s likely that police and immigration here will contact their counterparts in the UK for details of his past. Witnesses at the scene did support claims that the Russian had made advances to a 15-year-old girl who was in his company, with some speculating that she is the daughter of his current girlfriend.

– Pattaya to celebrate pride month with colourful parade and festivities
Prepare for color to flow in the city in a week’s time as Pattaya prepares to celebrate Pride Month on June 8. A joint program planned between city hall and the SWING Foundation, the events promise a colorful carnival-style parade with various performances and activities alongside Jomtien Beach, where stages will be erected and traffic reduced to accommodate an expected large crowd.
