– Flash flood warning issued for Thailand
Thailand’s NBTC office has asked all media to warn the public of the possibility of flash flooding from now through to 8th July across the nation. With a monsoon trough lying across the north and northeast, extra vigilance is recommended, especially during storms.

– Man robbed of 3.3 Million baht after bank withdrawal
In the capital this week, a man claimed that after withdrawing 3.3 million baht from a local bank, he was accosted by an armed duo as he sat in his car and relieved of the cash. Police attended the scene, the bank confirmed the withdrawal, and it is likely that the wily robbers had long sat in wait, somehow expecting him to take the cash out. Some speculate that the money was for a purchase that somehow involved the robbers.

– Vandal appeals after temple graffiti conviction
Bail was posted yesterday ahead of an appeal by a vandal who spray-painted graffiti on the walls of the Temple of the Emerald Buddha in Bangkok. Last year saw him arrested as police caught him scrawling on the otherwise pristine walls of the temple. The 26-year-old had written his political message with an aerosol can. Courts this week sentenced him to 8 months behind bars. Appealing appears to be fruitless though, as he pled guilty to the crime in order to get a lower sentence.

– Former land officer arrested for issuing illegal deeds
An ex-high-ranking officer in Nakhon Ratchasima’s land office has been arrested this week, charged with illegally issuing deeds for land that belongs to the state. The former department director, now retired, is charged with issuing land documents for over 2,000 rai of national park land.

– Thailand and Malaysia to strengthen trade relations
In the south, an agreement between five Thai provinces and their neighboring Malaysian counterparts could see a trade and investment agreement worth over a trillion baht. Both sides, according to Thailand’s commerce minister, have agreed to work together, with each Thai province matched to a single one on the other side. Malaysia is Thailand’s fourth-largest trade partner.

– German faces deportation for criminal record
In Bangkok, when a German man was questioned during a police investigation, he was found to be just a few days on overstay. That alone would normally see a fine, but in his case, as technology allows immigration police access globally to other nations and their data, it was found that he had a criminal history back in Europe involving violence and attempted murder. Reminding all that it is illegal for those with criminal records to visit here, a law that is very tough to implement, he was duly taken away for deportation. Described by German authorities as a member of an organized crime gang, he is currently being accommodated at the immigration detention center.

– New details emerge in Phuket shooting
As courts continue to review the case of a Canadian gang member who, along with one other, shot an Indian gangster in Phuket two years ago, it has been revealed that the dead Indian had, in Canada, been connected with a gang that had murdered another gang leader there. Dupre, the man charged, was shipped here handcuffed from his home country on a Thai Air Force plane, as no commercial airline would agree to take him as a passenger. The much-feared 38-year-old is expected to be given a life sentence in a Bangkok court and remains without bail awaiting sentence. The dead man? Well, he was deported from Canada due to his criminal activity, had warrants out for his arrest in India for drug trafficking, and had recently been sent packing by Malaysian authorities from whence he had flown back to Phuket on a private plane.

– Russian woman falls from balcony in Pattaya
Meanwhile, a 44-year-old Russian, Oksana S., fell from the 6th-floor balcony of a luxury Jomtien condo this week, amid claims from her spouse that she jumped after a row. It seems she wanted to smoke marijuana, and he didn’t want her to, per his statement. The next thing he knew, she was gone. Medics were unable to revive her, and a full post-mortem has been ordered, as is standard in Thailand. The husband was being questioned further yesterday as CCTV from around the building was being reviewed.

– Pattaya marathon to attract thousands
Pattaya City’s Amazing Thailand Pattaya Marathon, set to take place on July 20th-21st, 2024, is, according to the city mayor, expected to attract some 15,000 people to the city. In a press conference, he said that the Marathon has received three international standard event certificates from the World Athletics Association for the 42.195 km marathon, 21.1 km half marathon, and 10 km run distances, ranking it jointly with just one other Thai marathon. This makes Pattaya Marathon one of only two marathons in Thailand to have received all three certifications for the same event. Fifteen thousand runners and 15,000 in support teams are expected to see hotel bookings rise along with road closures. Some 3,000 volunteers and staff will oversee the route.

– Land clearance halted on Koh Larn island
Land clearance on Ko Larn Island by a developer has been halted by authorities who have asked the developer to show proof of ownership of the land, which to date has been assumed to be state-owned. A huge tract of land was cleared by bulldozers this week, seeing locals reporting the work to authorities. It seems some land does have private ownership, but all work has been stopped until the proofs are supplied.
