Bangkok’s local authority the BMA will raid unauthorised pet markets throughout the city to prevent similar incidents following Tuesday's blaze at Chatuchak market that killed an estimated 5000 animals.

Bangkok’s governor met with an animal protection network yesterday and vowed to investigate other pet markets, adding that every pet store is now required to have 2 permits, one from the BMA and another from the department of livestock.


The minister for transport announced that a 20-baht cap on train fares will be rolled out across Bangkok's rail network by March 2026.

The minister said the 20 baht fare will be introduced  to ensure the city's rail network is accessible to all residents. 


Consumer protection officers seized 18 million baht worth of counterfeit powdered milk products smuggled from Vietnam and arrested six workers from Myanmar and Laos during a raid on a warehouse in Samut Prakan. They were arrested and charged with selling unregistered products and working without work permits. 

Around  20,000 cans of powdered milk and other food supplements were seized.


A Thai Army army colonel has been transferred and placed under an investigation after he allegedly charged each new conscript, 500 baht per month to clean and empty septic tanks. The Army issued a statement claiming that no army units demand utility fees from conscripts.

Prime Minister Srettha Thavisin condemned the deductions as unacceptable and emphasized the need to encourage voluntary military service.


Around the region.
Malaysia’s government made the world’s highest number of requests to TikTok to take down over 18 hundred posts during the second half of last year,  part of a surge in social media censorship that critics say is aimed at silencing political opposition.

In South-east Asia, Indonesia was in second place with 351 while Singapore asked for takedowns 47 times.
