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



– Final moments of Leicester city FC’s helicopter crash released
‘I have no idea what’s going on!’ Those then were the final words of the pilot of the helicopter carrying Thai billionaire K Vichai, then owner of Leicester city football club, before it crashed. A full enquiry has now been completed into the crash which saw 5 die in the UK as they left a football match and blame given to a failed bearing despite IT being within the factory approved age and use range. The pilot has been fully exonerated and the hearing was told that he used exemplary skills to land the stricken helicopter BUT as it reached the ground it struck a solid concrete unit which then ruptured the fuel supplies leading to an inferno which killed those on board. Essentially, all but one is believed to have been alive at the point of landing. Inspection of the bearing was only required once it had been used for 400 hours, but the helicopter had only been flown for 331 hours when the accident happened. The report ruled out drone involvement and pilot error.

– Welcome reprieve for Thailand’s guesthouses
The Thai Hotels Association is up in arms over new amendments to the hotel act which now allows exemption from regulations for any guest house offering less than 8 rooms and accommodating less than 30 people. Prior to covid, Numerous guest house operators were charged with illegal operation and many closed down after a prior amendment was introduced that imposed the same conditions of operation on a mom and pop guesthouse with a handful of rooms as on the bigger hotels and resorts. That condition, introduced earlier than promised, saw tourists restricted to the higher priced big hotels. Changes at the end of last month, posted in the Royal gazette see the recognition of guest houses WITH under 8 rooms as legitimate. Those businesses though still will be required to register guests and pay relevant taxes. The changes, appearing amid the throws of the low season here, were NOT warmly welcomed by the powerful hotel association who have to strictly adhere to safety and building regs which are in effect for the safety of guests.

– New cabinet take oaths of office before HM King & Queen
Thailand’s new PM, K Srettha has undertaken to uphold the principles of democracy with HM the king as head of state as he and the new cabinet took their oaths of office yesterday before their majesties the King and Queen of Thailand. A declaration of immediate plans of action is expected by the weeks end as the cabinet WILL meet today.

– Club raids in Phuket
Phuket police, now firmly seeking out entertainment businesses who allow minors entry, reports on a raid in the Patong area that saw the arrest of a venue operator after under 20 year olds were found on the premises. Operators there have seen a repeat warning that undercover checks WILL continue in the region where previous raids have also seen businesses caught and operators arrested.

– Dengue fever cases spike in Pattaya
Meanwhile at home and our own province of Chonburi has reported WEEKLY figures for Dengue fever, carried by mosquitoes and not passed from human to human, at 2900 known patients, with 3 having passed away but with each possibly having other illnesses that contributed to their demise. Banglamung district, which includes Pattaya, is seeing 25 to 30 new cases weekly and the reminder is out to remove any pots of stagnant water around homes as these allow mosquito larvae to thrive.

– Oil leak slick likely to damage local beaches
Oil spills at the weekend in our province have resulted in reports today of an oil slick some 5 KM in length being spotted by drones operated by the Disaster Prevention and Mitigation Office. Despite boons being laid in an attempt to contain the slick, it is believed that rough seas will have contributed to the spread. And experts predict that the slick may touch land in Udom bay and even Bangsaen beach but will NOT reach the Pattaya region. The leak happened as a tanker was unloading crude oil at Sri racha and is also expected to reach the beaches of Koh Si Chang. Thailand has a history of quick cleanups for oil spills and any beach damage will likely be dealt with quickly, this combined with the use of chemicals to break oil down in the ocean is hoped to see an avoidance of an ecological disaster.
