  2. On the evening of June 16, 2024, a car accident occurred in Pattaya, Thailand where a local man's car collided with an American tourist's vehicle, resulting in minor injuries for the Thai man. The unfortunate incident took place on Soi Phra Tamnak 6, Nongprue sub-district, Banglamung district, in Chonburi province involving two sedan cars. The Sawang Boriboon Thammasathan Rescue Foundation promptly responded, arriving on the scene alongside The Pattaya News team. Emergency services found a black Honda Jazz flipped onto its side, with visible damage and engine oil spilt on the road. This car was driven by Mr. Theerathorn Ha-ngen, a 30-year-old Thai local. The other car, a bronze Honda sedan, was driven by 43-year-old Mr. Mohammed Amir Dhedhi, an American visiting the country. Despite the accident, Mr. Dhedhi remained uninjured and active in cooperating with local authorities. According to Mr. Ha-ngen, the accident was caused when Mr. Dhedhi's car, which was parked by the roadside, unexpectedly pulled out and collided with his car's back end. This resulted in his car flipping and the resulting injuries which included minor scrapes and discomfort in his chest and abdomen. Presently, the Pattaya police are examining CCTV footage to establish the origins of the accident, assign responsibility, and decide if there's a need for legal proceedings.

  4. An Indian tourist reported being attacked and robbed outside a hotel in Pattaya, early on Monday morning, June 17. Gobin Manimaran, 34, informed the Pattaya police of his ordeal at around 5:36 AM that day. The Deputy Inspector of Investigation at Pattaya Police Station, Pol. Lt. Col. Boonsong Yingyong, received Manimaran's complaint. Manimaran said he was attacked and had his belongings stolen by a group of men outside the White Rose Hotel, situated in Banglamung district's Nongprue sub-district, Chonburi region. An unidentified person who witnessed the event said Manimaran approached him for help after purportedly being attacked by three individuals. The assailants allegedly took his wallet, which had about $50 (approximately 1,750 Baht), and his iPhone 10 before running away. The attack reportedly happened late in the evening on June 16, 2024. Before contacting the police, Manimaran initially asked the hotel to inspect the CCTV footage of the incident. The hotel staff suggested he report the incident to the police first, prompting his visit to the station to file the complaint. Manimaran didn't suffer any severe injuries, but he did have minor bruises. The police, under Pol. Lt. Col. Boonsong's supervision, are currently investigating the incident.

  5. Thai man found dead, his sexual partner goes missing File photo for reference only A 63 year old Thai man was found dead under puzzling circumstances in a hotel room in Ubon Ratchathani province, with a woman, believed to be his partner, missing from the scene.

  6. A 63 year old Thai man was found dead under puzzling circumstances in a hotel room in Ubon Ratchathani province, with a woman, believed to be his partner, missing from the scene. Local authorities were called to investigate the unusual death of Chaiyasit, a retired official from the Royal Irrigation Department, on June 15. He was discovered wearing only his underwear and motionless on the bed. Police located his shirt, trousers, wallet and identification card at the foot of the bed. They also found dry leaves on the bed, although the plant species they come from has not been determined yet. The police found no evidence of injuries or robbery. Chaiyasit's possessions, including money, mobile phone and the keys to his red Toyota parked outside, were all intact. A 29 year old hotel employee named Wong recounted to the police that Chaiyasit came to the hotel with a woman who seemed to be between 40 and 50 years old. The woman was heard shouting for help around 2:27pm. Wong's girlfriend, also an employee of the hotel, found the woman attempting to resuscitate Chaiyasit. The woman requested the hotel staff to call for medical assistance, but they were unable to save Chaiyasit. However, before the police or a medical team arrived, the woman collected her belongings and left the hotel by taxi. Police are currently reviewing CCTV footage from both the hotel and neighboring areas. They are attempting to get in contact with the woman for questioning. Online speculations suggest the woman was not involved in Chaiyasit's death but had left because she did not want to get entangled in the investigation and possible confrontation with Chaiyasit’s wife. Some internet users also suppose that Chaiyasit might have consumed an excess amount of Viagra, resulting in his death.

  7. Imposters posing as police and extorting money arrested in Samut Sakhon File photo for reference only Thai law enforcement officers have arrested a gang in Samut Sakhon, who were extorting money from kratom juice sellers and fuel smugglers by pretending to be police.

  8. Thai law enforcement officers have arrested a gang in Samut Sakhon, who were extorting money from kratom juice sellers and fuel smugglers by pretending to be police. The gang members were caught today during a raid which uncovered their fraudulent activities. According to police, on May 29, this group had visited a kratom juice shop in Mueang Samut Sakhon. Dressed in Central Investigation Bureau (CIB) vests and arriving on motorcycles, they convinced the shopkeeper that they were actual police officers. They demanded 28,000 baht from the vendor to avoid any legal trouble and insisted they pay additional 3,000 baht monthly for the same reason. But these extortionists were not only targeting kratom juice sellers. The gang exploited the same trick of impersonation to extort money from people smuggling fuel in Samut Sakhon. The probe into this case has found that more than 11 individuals, including two active police officers and nine civilians, were part of this illicit operation. During the raid, authorities discovered counterfeit police badges, CIB vests, and other evidence that implicated the suspects in the crimes. These suspects were arrested and are now going through further legal procedures, as reported by Pattaya News. The Thai authorities' action against this gang of extortionists is a part of an ongoing nationwide effort to eliminate corruption and misconduct, which erode the public's trust in law enforcement. A comprehensive investigation is now underway to identify the level of involvement of these police officers and to uncover any possible links within the police force.

  10. Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) and the Department of Disease Control (DDC) are actively collaborating with businesses to combat the rising incidence of dengue fever, a situation exacerbated by the expanding range of dengue-carrying mosquitoes due to climate change. To commemorate ASEAN Dengue Day, which occurs on June 15, BMA and DDC, in partnership with Kao Industrial (Thailand) Co. Ltd., Takeda (Thailand) Limited, and other corporate entities, organised an event titled Dengue Heroes towards Zero Death. Held at the Airawat Pattana building within the City Hall complex in Din Daeng, the event aimed to bolster the World Health Organization’s (WHO) objective of eliminating dengue-related deaths by 2030. Residents were encouraged to implement measures to protect their communities from the spread of dengue, including maintaining proper sanitation and ensuring effective drainage to prevent Aedes aegypti mosquitoes from breeding. Participants received crucial information, particularly regarding the importance of these measures during the El Nino phenomenon, which typically results in shorter but more intense rain, creating stagnant pools of clean water ideal for mosquito breeding. From January to May this year, almost 30,000 dengue fever cases were reported, with 29 fatalities. The DDC anticipates this number could rise to as many as 280 by the end of the year. DDC Director-General Thongchai Keeratihatthayakorn emphasised the critical role of public involvement in disrupting the dengue transmission cycle. “By becoming dengue heroes in their communities, everyone can help.” Bangkok Governor Chadchart Sittipunt, speaking at the event, highlighted the city’s proactive measures to curb the disease’s spread. These include active surveillance, eradication of breeding sites, and community engagement. The 58 year old remarked that our goal is to ensure everyone in the community is informed and vigilant. The Embassy of Japan in Thailand, the National Electronics and Computer Technology Center, the Industrial Estate Authority of Thailand, Amata Plc, and CP ALL Plc also lent their support to the event, reported Bangkok Post.

  12. An intense football match ended in chaos when fans set off flares, causing a vehicle to catch fire at the Thammasat University, Rangsit Centre. The incident left the car’s owner devastated, as the vehicle was uninsured and essential for daily work. The fire occurred at 9pm yesterday, June 16, following the conclusion of the Revo Cup final between Muangthong United and BG Pathum United, where BG Pathum emerged victorious with a score of 1-0. Police and firefighters from the Tha Khlong Municipality Fire Department quickly responded to the fire behind the Main Stadium. They found a white Isuzu four-door pickup truck engulfed in flames. The firefighters extinguished the blaze within ten minutes but the vehicle’s interior was extensively damaged from the fire. Witnesses reported that a group of five to six individuals ignited flares near the stadium, one of which landed on the pickup truck, causing the fire. An eyewitness, 41 year old Piyapong recounted the event. “I saw the group set off the first flare, which fell into the football field. Another one landed on the car. They then moved towards the stadium entrance, causing further disturbances with other fans.” Another eyewitness, a BG Pathum fan, Natee Srisuk shares additional details on the unruly hooligans. Group of fans “I saw them setting off flares outside the stadium. Someone recorded it, and when the flare landed and caused the fire, the group chased the person filming. They were all men, around 20 to 30 years old.” The 47 year old car owner, Arun arrived to find his vehicle in flames. He shared that his car is uninsured and essential for his daily work, distraught, he remains unsure of how to seek compensation for the damages. Arun visited the stadium for his sons’s football match with MJ United from Ayutthaya, unrelated to the teams playing yesterday. “If I had known it would be like this, I wouldn’t have come. For a big competition like this, it has to be better. How can it be organised to prevent incidents like this? I saw fans fighting and setting off flares, which should not happen. “I want to urge everyone involved to come and rectify this problem, and I also want to address the Football Association to help manage this issue. I don’t want incidents like this to happen, but now that it has, someone must take responsibility and expedite the resolution because I need this car for my livelihood.” A rescue team member from the on-site Thitikarn Ambulance Service explained that the fire started on a sheet of canvas before spreading to the car. Investigators documented the scene and instructed officers to review CCTV footage to identify and apprehend the culprits responsible for the incident, reported Khaosod.

  15. The Election Commission has "Plan B," says Commissioner Thitichet File photo for reference only The Election Commission (EC) has prepared a contingency plan for a possible ruling that may declare four articles in the senate election law unconstitutional, according to election commissioner Thitichet Nuchanatta. Though he confirmed that senatorial selections at the provincial level will continue as scheduled this Sunday, he did not disclose what the backup plan involves. He added that the EC will await Tuesday's verdict and stated that any assumption that the senatorial election could be nullified due to the court's decision is purely speculative.
