  2. Phuket Police inspector in Patong under investigation for corruption The Phuket News Patong Police Chief Col Chaiwat Uikam remains on active duty, but Capt Thanturong Wutthiwong has been moved out of Patong pending an investigation into allegations of corruption. Photo: The Phuket News / file PHUKET:-- A Patong Police investigator has been moved out Phuket’s busiest resort town pending an investigation into allegations of corruption, Thai Prime Minister Gen Prayut Chan-o-cha has confirmed. Speaking to the press outside Government House yesterday afternoon (Mar 28), PM Gen Prayut said, “One Phuket police inspector has been moved out as there has been a complaint, and it must be investigated. “For now we do not know the facts yet. The officer must be investigated and must be moved out from the area first. “I know there is a fight between police and reporters in the area, but when there is a clear complaint with names, addresses, offices and details of the complaint, we must be fair to everyone,” he added. The move follows a signed petition addressed to PM Prayut calling for Patong Police Chief Col Chaiwat Uikam and Capt Thanturong Wutthiwong to be removed from Patong immediately. The letter accuses Col Chaiwat and Capt Thanturong, who is awaiting official promotion to the rank of Police Major, of abusing their positions of power. “They act like mafia who use law to threaten people and look down on people like we are slaves, who are not afraid of anyone, who use the power for their own benefit,” the letter alleged. “These police refer to Gen Prawit Wongsuwan, that they know him well and are not afraid of anyone in Phuket, not even the Phuket Governor or higher-ranking Phuket police. “We have reported this to the Damrongdharma Centre (Ombudsman’s Office), the National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) and the 41st Military Circle, but have had no reaction,” the letter added.

  5. Red-letter day for Britain's man in Brussels By Alastair Macdonald Britain's permanent representative to the European Union Tim Barrow delivers British Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit letter in notice of the UK's intention to leave the bloc under Article 50 of the EU's Lisbon Treaty to EU Council President Donald Tusk in Brussels, Belgium March 29, 2017. REUTERS/Yves Herman It was Tim Barrow's big day in Brussels but first, before handing over Theresa May's Brexit trigger letter, the British ambassador to the EU had to get on with "legal highs". For Barrow's 27 peers from the other member states, it was business as usual on Wednesday morning with their weekly meeting at the European Council. On the agenda of the body, known by its French acronym Coreper, was a scheme to provide emergency aid during natural disasters and EU legislative proposals to control new psychoactive substances, commonly known as legal highs. For Barrow, however, this was a day like no other. Probably never before has a British envoy to the European Union been greeted by quite so many snapping photographers and yelling camera crews when he stepped from the ambassadorial Jaguar on to the EU's red carpet. Formerly "our man in Moscow", the 53-year-old diplomat, appointed to the Brussels Brexit hot seat in January after the dramatic resignation of his disgruntled predecessor, was saying nothing as he strode past the Union's blue and gold star flag. Officials would not say whether the letter from the prime minister confirming Britain's intention to quit the bloc under Article 50 of the EU treaty was in his well-worn black briefcase. Nor would they reveal how the missive, signed by May in 10 Downing Street on Tuesday, had arrived in Brussels. After his fellow Coreper ambassadors break for lunch, Barrow has an appointment at 1:20 p.m. (1120 GMT) with European Council President Donald Tusk, the EU summit chair and former Polish prime minister, to make the formal delivery of the letter. That will set the clock ticking to Britain's departure, in principle on March 29, 2019, a Friday, although the precise date could be fine-tuned by negotiation. From now until then, Barrow will have to get used to Coreper frequently meeting without him as the EU27 takes on a legal character to exclude Britain. Barrow's handover of the letter, which EU officials expect will offer a positive approach to negotiations and set out over several pages May's existing demands, is due to take place in Tusk's offices on the top floor of the Europa Building. Opened just this year amid criticism of its cost and garish internal colour schemes, the building which senior EU officials jokingly refer to as "Tusk Tower", was planned in happier times, when the Union seemed set for ever more expansion, taking in a dozen new members, mainly in formerly Communist eastern Europe. On Wednesday, it will see its first great historic occasion but hardly one its designers foresaw. Nine months after Britons shocked the bloc by voting to leave in a referendum, Barrow will launch the unprecedented shrinking of the European Union. On the other side of Brussels' Rue de la Loi (Law Street), in The Old Hack, a British-style pub, members of the European Parliament from the UK Independence Party will be celebrating. The anti-EU campaigners are throwing a "Brexit Party". (Editing by Mark Trevelyan) -- © Copyright Reuters 2017-3-29

You see them everywhere: old-timey guys. With their high-waisted trousers, handlebar mustaches and grandfatherly eyeglasses, these dudes look like they stepped directly out of your grandmother’s fantasies and onto the streets of Bangkok. Hair is key to properly rocking a vintage look. To get it right, men need to visit one of Bangkok’s increasingly popular old-school barbershops. Shops like Craftsmen, Three Brothers, and Sxissors cater to customers by offering traditional cuts such as high-and-tights, undercuts, skin fades, and slick backs. These styles, reminiscent of the 30s and 40s, can feel decidedly modern.

Samui to be a Songkran ‘Paradise’ Some of the big names in electronic music will be performing at the Paradise Island Festival being presented by London-based Soundcrash on Koh Samui on April 15 and 16.

  13. Prawit denies reports on elections and reshuffle By The Nation Deputy Prime Minister Prawit Wongsuwan has refuted a report that the state was preparing for local administration elections, saying it was only an assumption. He also dismissed a report that there might be a cabinet reshuffle in April after Songkran Days. He said it was impossible to hold such an election now as the organic laws had not been completed. Article 44 which grants sweeping power to the junta would not be used either, he said. Everything must follow the constitution, Prawit stressed.
