VERY LATEST NEWS FROM THAILAND in English (6 June 2023) from Fabulous 103fm Pattaya

Paternity leave for new Dads in Thailand
New Dads working for the Thailand’s government now have the right to take 15 consecutive working days paternity leave with full pay, following an agreement signed by a deputy caretaker PM  last month.  They can also opt for 30 days but at half pay.  The changes are surprising many who believed that new regulations would be left for the next government to review before approval,  that obviously isn’t the case.

22 year old Malaysian woman MISSING in Chiang Mai
In Chiang mai, a 22 year old Malaysian lady,  Angie Chong Sum Yee, is being sought by police and locals after her mother clarified that all contact had been lost with her daughter since before the weekend.  The tourist had been travelling alone in the Chiang mai area, and was in constant contact until the sudden stop as she was close to the Burmese border and family is worried that she may have crossed over and.. got lost.

Swedish Korner no longer accepted at Thai exchange booths
Banks and exchange booths here are not welcoming the Swedish Korner, leaving tourists reliant on their debit and credit cards for cash.  This follows claims that the Swedish national bank isn’t happy to accept back their own cash in exchange from non Swedish banks… disruption began at the start of the month, following Sweden’s banks refusal since the start of the year to willingly buy back their own currency.

Thailand plans power shutdown for Myanmar’s casino town
The Karen Border Guard Force (BGF), has responded to Thailand’s mention of power authorities HERE planning the cut off of electricity supply to the casino town just inside the border of Myanmar, by threatening to close the bridges in the region linking Thailand to their country.  The BGF, a government approved force, has been accused in the past of involvement in the nefarious activities which are prevalent in the town and working with Chinese gangsters.  So much so that the Burmese government requested the power cut following discussion with their Chinese counterparts who are keen to see the criminal underbelly, which often targets Chinese citizens in fraud.. closed down. Thailand’s PEA contract to supply ended yesterday, the BGF claim to have set up a backup power for venues there but not necessarily for the rank and file residents.

Tour scammers arrested
In SURAT THANI: Three men and three women have been charged with selling fake overseas tours, duping online buyers out of around 27 MILLION baht.   Caught in their sales office , they face claims from close to 100 customers that they had paid for discounted trips to Japan and Europe.

Covid cases surge in Thailand
The number of Covid-19 inpatients rose last week, seeing health authorities recommend vaccination for young people.  Over three thousand were hospitalised across the country in the 7 day period,  with an unknown number being treated as outpatients.  68 deaths were attributed to the virus , mostly those with pre existing conditions

Documents destroyed in Thai taxation office fire
Don’t all sigh with relief at once.  Despite a fire in a taxation department’s document storage.. records remain computerized and no one will escape their tax dues.  That’s the word from the excise department following a 3rd floor fire at their HQ in Bkk.  No one was injured and they will be fully operational today, after a three day weekend.  The cause.. has yet to be determined.

Suspect surrenders after knifing foreigner in Pattaya 
A 29 yr old half Thai half Iranian man who admits stabbing his erstwhile pal after a row has turned himself in to police. Seems the two had been out drinking and stopped on a bike to buy fried chicken at one in the morning. The one referred to the other as HIS bitch.  He took offence and stabbed him, leaving him bleeding in the gutter and fled. It was locals who saved the injured 40 year old, they called medics who took him away for treatment.

Tourist given unwanted body piercing by offended Thai lady
And social media is awash with amateur photos taken of a Western tourist, who was spotted in the Soi Buakhao area, with an interesting body piercing.. a fruit knife. Seems the man had ticked off a local Thai lady they had rowed with, he used a chair to defend himself, and she implanted the knife in his leg before fleeing.  He refused medical assistance and would not go to hospital, leading many to conclude that he may have visa issues but reality is, he reminded us all, that behind the smiles and up to yous, of the lady of the night, even they have their limits.  No word on what he did to upset her.

Clouds, rain, and storms in Thailand
Wonder as you might, if you live in Pattaya, most of the country has been blanketed with dark clouds, rain and storms over the past few days, and on many occasions they have covered our region too, but not a drop here.  That may end today as storms are predicted.

British do-gooders annoying residents of Huay Yai 
And a British linked bunch of do gooders are annoying residents in the Huay Yai area by dumping their left over food for feral dogs, often on private property. A combination of meats, veg and Yorkshire puddings thrown on to private drive ways has led to a barrage of angry mutts blocking home and business owners from entering as they protect their reaps. The thoughtless bunch, well they have plenty of open areas and car parks to feed on, and CCTV has been set up by many to catch them.
