VERY LATEST NEWS FROM THAILAND in English (9 November 2023) from Fabulous 103fm Pattaya

– Ex-cops jailed for extorting Taiwanese actress 
A central criminal court in the capital has sentenced 4 now ex-policemen to 5 years in prison after they were found guilty of extorting 27K baht from a Taiwanese actress at the start of the year.   The court then believed the woman’s claims that the errant boys in brown had planted a vaping e-cigarette on her before threatening her with jail.  All, along with another 2, found not guilty, were fired from the force a month after the occurrence following an internal police investigation.

– Thailand’s new anti-scam hotline sees surge in reported cases
The new 1441 hotline for the public to report online scams has seen a massive surge after it was launched just last month,  the ops center tells us that upwards of 15 THOUSAND calls were received in the first week and that as a result close to 700 so-called MULE accounts have been frozen with banks.   Teething problems included the speed of response by banks and the center’s ability to deal with the demand for service, both, we are told, have now been rectified.

– Escaped prisoner escapes AGAIN following shootout 
In the South of Thailand, a JAILED local crime gang boss who escaped from a hospital whilst being treated was tracked down to a rural area yesterday by police temas who engaged with him in gunfire before he, again, managed to elude them.  Seems he got an advanced warning of their approach to his secluded hideaway from a dog that was with him, which was enough to have him firing on the team and fleeing through the jungle.  300 officers made up the arrest team,  who went in full force after nabbing a local who had been taking him provisions. Seems the man, with a jail term of 20 years for numerous crimes including attempted murder, is armed with rifles and handguns, along with a stash of ammunition

– Foreign scammers nabbed in boiler room raid
A boiler room operation run by 2 Taiwanese and 2 Japanese was raided in Samut Sakhon after an undercover operation revealed that they were hoodwinking the gullible in Japan and had been for 2 years, reaping close to 10 BILLION baht in stolen funds.

– 10 wheel truck falls into Bangkok pit 
Road works in the capital CAUSED a 10 wheel HGV truck, carrying soil, to fall into a dug out pit after flimsy sheeting was put over it to allow traffic to pass.  Obviously not fit for purpose, the steel and concrete sheets gave way under the truck which was NOT overloaded, according to the driver and authorities. 2 motorbike riders were hospitalized as they subsequently drove into the hole.  With traffic backed up for miles, power had to be switched off for much of the area as a major recovery operation went into effect to remove first the load and then the truck itself.

– Pattaya thief claims to be mentally ill
In Pattaya, when a motorbike thief was caught red-handed by police, he began to behave, talk and act as if he were mentally subnormal, in the hope that cops would forgive him. That didn’t work and the 28-year-old was arrested.  CCTV records from a Sri Ratcha petrol station showed the same man stealing 2 and a half thousand bahts worth of fuel too, and that was linked, as he used the stolen bike to transport the fuel in plastic containers.  Checks confirmed that he has no mental issues, but perhaps could become a thespian in future life.

– Soi Bua Khao to become a one-way street
And rumour is that the city is considering making soi Buakhao a 1 way street.  If that goes ahead then the Sois from 2nd road would also be considered for single way traffic, in a similar fashion to that of those leading from the beach.  Adding extra traffic to second road for sure, the proposal is based on the increasing daily vehicle count on buakao which, until a decade ago, was a sleepy soi and which cannot be widened.
