– Move Forward Party submits defense in constitutional court dissolution case
Yesterday saw the Move Forward Party submit its written defense against a case in the constitutional courts intended to see it shut down. Back in January, the Election Commission filed to have the party dissolved despite it having won the last election, but later it was unable to secure votes to establish a government as, at that time, the Senate had an equal vote to that of the elected parliament. The legal battle will be resolved this year.

– Locals warned of wild elephants after farmer loses his life 
In Phetchabun, a warning has been issued to locals in a small rural community not to forage for mushrooms in the local forest as a herd of elephants has moved into the area, recently resulting in the death of one 61-year-old. Mushroom picking is a popular way to enhance income in many rural areas in Thailand and is usually done after dark. It is believed that the man was attacked by a female who was protecting a young calf.

– Teens electrocuted on Thai amusement park ride
Recovering now in hospital, it has been revealed that two 19-year-old girls suffered electric burns from a badly erected fair ride at an amusement park in Lopburi on Sunday. It seems the two simply grabbed the handrail, but it was carrying full mains power due to defective wiring. Both were knocked out and fell before being hospitalized. The ride operators claim that the ride had been inspected previously but would cover all costs.

– Disturbed teen takes girlfriend’s life before passing out on pills
In Pathum Thani, when an 18-year-old disturbed male teen fell out with his girlfriend, he took her life before removing limbs and dumping her in roadside wasteland near the expressway. Spotted by locals, they investigated and called police who later got a call from the student’s family as they found him tanked up with pills in his locked bedroom. His life, at least, was saved, only for him to have a future behind bars.

– Iranian expat arrested for fraudulent property sale
A 61-year-old Iranian has been arrested in the capital and charged with fraud after police reports in Sriracha show claims that he was involved with another fellow countryman in property ownership, forged documents, and then sold the property, pocketing 21 million baht. Faking documents, he took control of the property without his then partner being in any way aware until he found out that it had been sold.

– Expat sues Thai ex-wife following love affair
An Australian man has filed a legal claim against his now ex-wife for money he spent on the woman who, he subsequently found out, had been in an even longer relationship with a Danish man. Police, it seems, took his side and advised the woman to pay a fraction of the man’s claim to settle the case. She now believes that she was illegally coerced into paying 50K of a 400K claim, showing social media posts by the Oz man calling her another word for a strumpet. She also claims that it was basically his job to support her as his wife during their 3-year marriage, but hubby has gone on record stating that his errant ex was married to the Dane before they had even met, unknown, of course, to him.

– Vietnamese man and Thai partner arrested for selling tiger cub
Ever wondered how these members of the public manage to buy protected wild animals, lions, tigers, and the like? Well, this week police arrested a Vietnamese man and his Thai female partner as they sold a tiger cub to an undercover officer. The sting operation was put into play after 300K baht was promised in an online group. The man put his hands up to the crime; the woman didn’t, claiming that despite carrying the cub in a basket to the meeting, she had no idea what was in the basket until they were handcuffed.

– Pattaya mayor to fine contractors 114k per day for unfinished roadworks 
Meanwhile, the Pattaya mayor yesterday inspected the long-unfinished roadworks on the Sukhumvit at the Chayapruek intersection area, noting that it had started over a year ago and was due to be finished now. Apologizing for the inconvenience, he told the press of a plan to get it finished in double quick time. City Hall will fine the contractors at a rate of 114K baht a day. That then is likely to see a rapid response.

– Wanted Aussie criminal arrested after fleeing to Pattaya
A 52-year-old Australian who had had his visa to Thailand revoked in Phuket has been arrested in Pattaya this week. It seems 52-year-old Mr. Grey wasn’t happy as, if he is deported, he faces warrants still open against him in his home country. With a criminal history that is supposed to preclude foreigners from gaining a visa here, he is described in reports as intimidating.

– Elderly Thai couple buys motorbike after ‘accidentally’ stealing it
Police were left scratching their heads after a report of a stolen motorbike was followed up by a couple in their seventies who told police that yes, they had taken the bike, but that they had thought it belonged to their friend, who had asked them to collect her bike from the same location and even sent them a set of keys. Loading it slowly onto a trailer, they were spotted by locals who, for whatever reason, took photos. The real owners, also aged, noted that their bike was parked next to the one that the couple should have been collecting. Then, the errant couple resolved the issue by offering to buy the ride from the real owners for 8K baht which was, we are told, more than acceptable. It’s nice to be nice.
