  2. No overnight stay at Hua Lampong station BANGKOK: -- Hua Lampong or Bangkok railway station now disallows passengers on predawn trains to stay overnight at the station under its revised measures to upgrade the standards of the station. State Railway of Thailand (SRT) deputy governor Tanongsak Pongprasert said the new measures are the joint effort of the SRT and the Ministry of Social Welfare and Human Security to tackle problem of homeless people and beggars taking railway station as their home for overnight sleeping, and to upgrade the station standards to international level. He said from now, after the last night train departs Hua Lampong at 11.30 pm, all people would be good to leave the station. For passengers awaiting for departure on predawn trains, they will be told to stay outside at the arranged footpath in front of the station.

    A New Zealander’s Sweat-Soaked Tale of Being Busted for Drugs in Bangkok ANONYMOUS (As told to James Borrowdale) "Obviously I felt invincible, because I’m high on coke, obviously nothing is going to go wrong." It was my last night in Bangkok and I had been there for a couple of weeks. I went out to meet a friend. I turned up to the bar and everybody was pretty smashed. There were some drugs around. About 10 minutes after arriving someone gave me a nosebag and took me to the toilets. The line was huge, with a whole lot of sweaty people outside it.

  5. A New Zealander’s Sweat-Soaked Tale of Being Busted for Drugs in Bangkok ANONYMOUS (As told to James Borrowdale) "Obviously I felt invincible, because I’m high on coke, obviously nothing is going to go wrong." It was my last night in Bangkok and I had been there for a couple of weeks. I went out to meet a friend. I turned up to the bar and everybody was pretty smashed. There were some drugs around. About 10 minutes after arriving someone gave me a nosebag and took me to the toilets. The line was huge, with a whole lot of sweaty people outside it. We were partying for a while and then everybody left and we went to another bar. The order went in for some more bags. It was about 3:30 AM. People were a little bit cautious because the bar was next to a police station. Dealers were a little hesitant to deliver. But they did, and we got a gram. I met some Australian guys there, a guy and his younger brother—we decided at the last minute to jump in a taxi back to my hotel because there was some mini bar action going. We had to stop and get cigarettes. We were driving along in the taxi at probably 80 km/h and then in the distance we saw a roadblock, police lights flashing. We slowed down. At that point the ideas of how bad it is getting caught with drugs in Asia started to get into the brain. I was sitting in the middle seat. I got the drugs out of my pocket and put them on the ground and kicked them under the driver's seat. They got everybody out of the taxi. They split us all up and they started searching us—they checked my socks, my shoes, my cap. They searched us properly.

  7. Phang Nga orders crackdown after 50 per cent of large hotels and resorts lack wastewater treatment By The Nation Phang Nga Governor Phakkhapong Thawiphat on Thursday instructed Tambon Khuekkhak Municipality to crack down on resorts and hotels releasing untreated wastewater into ditches that eventually drained into the sea at the popular Khao Lak Beach. The wastewater reportedly has caused pollution and a foul smell at the beach, prompting many complaints filed with the provincial administration. The governor on Thursday instructed the provincial natural resources and environment office to cooperate with the municipality to investigate and take action against owners of resorts and hotels. A survey found that more than 50 per cent of resorts and hotels with more than 60 rooms still do not have proper wastewater treatment systems. Noppadol Ingkhawatcharakul, an official with the Phang Nga environment office, said his office would take legal action against resort and hotel owners. Noppadol said the survey also found that households and small resorts contributed to water pollution. As a result, the office advised the municipality to build facilities to filter and add oxygen to run-off water before it drains into the sea.

  9. Poland warns it may not adopt EU's Rome declaration REUTERS Poland's Prime Minister Beata Szydlo holds a news conference at the end of a European Union leaders summit in Brussels, Belgium, March 10, 2017. REUTERS/Yves Herman WARSAW (Reuters) - Poland may not accept the Rome declaration, which will chart the European Union's course after Britain leaves, if the document does not touch upon issues Warsaw considers crucial, the country's prime minister said. A draft of the declaration says EU leaders will work towards a Union which promotes economic and social progress as well as cohesion and convergence, taking into account the variety of social models and the key role of social partners. "If the declaration does not include the issues which are priorities for Poland, we will not accept the declaration," Prime Minister Beata Szydlo told private broadcaster TVN. "The unity of the European Union, defense of a tight NATO cooperation, strengthening the role of national governments and the rules of the common market which cannot divide but unite - these are the four priorities which have to be included in the declaration," Szydlo also said. Earlier this week, the head of Poland's ruling Law and Justice (PiS) party said Warsaw would put up a tough fight at the summit and would not bow to any form of a multi-speed Europe.

  11. Democrat Sathit slams Pheu Thai over call to scrap reconciliation panels By The Nation File photo: Sathit Pitutecha, deputy leader of the Democrat Party. BANGKOK: -- A Democrat politician claims the Pheu Thai Party is trying to discredit the government after the party’s former coalition leader called for the dissolution of the reconciliation committees. Sathit Pitutecha, deputy leader of the Democrat Party, said Pheu Thai’s call for the scrapping of the committees and the setting up of a new independent panel was an attempt to undermine the government’s credibility. Given Pheu Thai had participated in the reconciliation process, its petition could not be justifiable, Sathit said. He added that Pheu Thai should not have joined the reconciliation talks if it did not trust the process. The democrat deputy leader said the government had to be patient and explain to the public that the reconciliation talks aimed to contribute to peace and order after the general election was held. He said he had participated in the reconciliation talks and the government seemed sincere in this latest attempt to bring about national harmony. However Sathit warned that if that were not the case the government would face negative consequences. He disagrees with the idea of having all parties sign a related agreement, saying it would be meaningless if it did not work.

By April 17, stalls in Ekkamai, Thong Lor and Phra Khanong will be forced to shut down, despite the fact that Bangkok was recently named, for the second year in the row, the city for the greatest street food in the world by CNN. One vendor in Thong Lor told BK Magazine that a City Hall police officer handed him an announcement advising him about the forced closure and made him pose for a photo with the paper.
