  2. Supreme Court accepts final appeal in the Koh Tao murders The Supreme Court of Thailand has accepted the final appeal of Zaw Lin and Wai Phyo, the two migrant workers sentenced to death for the murders of British Tourists Hannah Witheridge and David Miller on Koh Tao. The final appeal from the lawyers representing the two men was submitted to the court on August 21st. The 319 page document points to evidence that Wai Phyo and Zaw Lin had been denied justice and fairness and are innocent of the crimes of which they have been convicted. Aung Myo Thant, a lawyer working with the Lawyers Council pointed out that Thai police violated the police procedure in the collection of DNA evidence and phone records and failed out proper procedures in searching for DNA evidence. He also said that the two men were forced to admit to the murders. He went on to say that the evidence presented at the trial does not support the death penalty. He told the Myanmar Times “Thailand has only one law for its citizens as well as foreigners, so I believe our two migrants can escape the death sentence because there is not enough evidence of murder,” he said. Zaw Lin and Wai Phyo will, this October, have been behind bars for 3 years. They were found guilty on 7 charges including the rape and murder of Hannah Witheridge and the murder of David Miller. They were sentenced to death in December 2015. Last month the National Crime Agency of the United Kingdom admitted to the High Court in London that they illegally gave phone records to the Thai police that helped to convict the two men. The council and Myanmar officials hope to hear a ruling on the final appeal to the Supreme Court within six months. U Aung Myo Thant said they will appeal again to the Thai royal government if the Supreme Court rejects their final appeal. U Aung Kyaw, president of the Thailand-based Migrant Workers Rights Network, which has been helping the council on the case, also urged the Thai government to rule in favour of the two Myanmar men. Myanmar’ special representative U Htoo Chit, executive director of the Thailand-based Foundation for Education, also said the NCA’s admission of illegally sharing evidence could affect the case and require that it be reinvestigated, he confirmed to the Samui Times today that the appeal has been accepted by the Supreme Court and it is now being reviewed.

  5. US/Thai model and paralympian with no legs makes tearful return to Korat hospital Image: Thai Rath There were tears of joy yesterday as a well-known US model and paralympian returned to the Thai hospital where she was abandoned 23 years ago. Kanya Sesser, 23, was left as a three or four month old baby on the steps of Pak Chong Nana hospital in Nakorn Ratchasima in 1994. Nurses named her after the month she was found - September or "kanyayon" in Thai. The infant had no legs but soon became a well known and much loved part of the hospital. A lot of people dedicated their time to take care of her. Now she has a great life in the US after she was adopted. Despite her disability she is a bikini model who inspires others. She is also planning to take part in a paraolympic competition in the US in 2018. Once confined to a wheelchair Kanya is adept at using a skateboard and has competed in extreme sports competitions and races. Yesterday there was barely a dry eye as Kanya returned; before she was helped down from the minivan Bunjan Chaikhweang, 62, rushed forward to hug her. Bunjan - who Kanya called "Mae Jan" (mother) - has since retired but was formerly a nurse at the hospital who helped lead the care for the abandoned child she loves so much. When Kanya was about five she was taken care of by an orphanage but two years later an American couple adopted her. Now she is proving that whatever able bodied people can do - she can do better. She has been featured in many high profile magazines and attracted the interest of people throughout the world. But she said yesterday that she will never forget her Thai roots and the kind doctors and nurses who cared for her when she was a baby and young child. Yesterday she was given a tour of all the places in the hospital where she used to play as a child and where she called home. Source: Thai Rath -- © Copyright Thai Visa News 2017-09-23

  9. PHOTOS: Badly secured load nearly results in another death Tnews It has been a bad week for inadequately secured loads on pick-up trucks. Following the death of a 65 year old man on a motorcycle in Pathum Thai when a PVC pipe swung out and killed him instantly, came further evidence of negligence on the Thai roads yesterday. A video showed the aftermath of a lucky escape for a car driver on the Huay Dong Nong Bon road. The driver had to brake suddenly to avoid a dog. This caused a pick-up carrying a large load of metal to also brake suddenly. The metal was not secured properly and flew forward and into the back of the car injuring the driver. The driver survived but Tnews said it was another example of the danger on the roads in Thailand. The video showed a flimsy piece of red rag acting as a "warning" dangling from the back of the load on the pick-up. Source: Tnews -- © Copyright Thai Visa News 2017-09-23
  10. May ready for tough talks over Brexit Catherine Hardy Theresa May has warned Britain’s negotiations to leave the EU will take some time. The UK prime minister says she is ready for some “difficult moments”, but will fight to remain part of the bloc’s single market. It was May’s first European Council since becoming prime minister after the UK voted to leave the EU in June. She made it clear that she hoped some of the most complicated talks London has ever undertaken will be held in a constructive manner. “Obviously, we have got negotiations ahead of ourselves. Those negotiations will take time, as I say, there will be some difficult moments, we are going to need some give and take,” May told a press conference. A hard Brexit? Having earlier provoked concern among stakeholders that she was heading for a “hard Brexit”, May moved to ease concerns. She said she wanted the best trade deal possible. A so-called “hard Brexit” would mean a clear break with the single market to control immigration. “We are not looking to adopt another model that somebody else has in relation to their trade with the European Union,” May said. “What we want is to develop what is a new relationship for the UK with the EU,” she continued, outlining her aim for a bespoke deal. “We want to have the best possible deal for trade in goods and services with, and operation within, the single European market.” The timeline Once May gives formal notice that Britain is leaving – by March, she has said – the EU Council will meet at 27, minus May, to set negotiating guidelines for the Commission. Donald Tusk will be arbiter of what deal Britain is offered, but the Council has less than a tenth of the Commission’s 33,000 staff to work on the details. Saving sterling Sterling fell on fears that Britain was heading for a “hard Brexit”. May, and some of her more eurosceptic ministers, have worked hard to reassure business and EU leaders that her policies will not hurt the economy. What is the single market? Envisioned as a single territory without any internal borders or regulatory obstacles to the free movement of goods and services, the EU single market accounts for: 500 million customers 21 million small and medium-sized businesses CETA in trouble? Theresa May’s comments come amid reports that a landmark trade deal between the EU and Canada has collapsed. The Commercial and Economic Trade Agreement – CETA for short – would remove tariffs from the sale of many goods between the 28 EU member states and Canada. Some are watching the negotiations closely, seeing it as a precursor to the UK’s Brexit negotiations. -- © Copyright Euronews 2016-10-22

  12. Massive Pattani hunt for Rangers’ killers

    Suspects arrested over Pattani bomb attack By Pares Lohasan The Nation Two suspects linked to the fatal bomb attack that killed four rangers and wounded five others in Pattani on Friday were apprehended on Saturday. The unnamed suspects - identified only as two construction workers near the bomb location - reportedly had been detained once over suspicion of a separate bomb attack in 2015 but were released due to lack of evidence, a source at the security agency said. The arrest was made around noon as the Thai authority dispatched some 500 tripartite forces of military, police and civilians backed by tanks, personnel carriers and a helicopter. They conducted searches at more than 10 locations in Pattani’s Sai Buri district on Saturday. Source: http://www.nationmultimedia.com/detail/breakingnews/30327504 -- © Copyright The Nation 2017-09-23
  13. Massive Pattani hunt for Rangers’ killers By The Nation Some 500 tripartite forces of military, police and civilians backed by tanks, personnel carriers and a helicopter conducted searches at several spots in Pattani’s Sai Buri district on Saturday morning for insurgents who carried out a fatal bomb attack on Friday. The search operation was led by Maj-General Jatuporn Klampasut, the commander of the Pattani Taskforce. On Friday, four Rangers were killed while four others and a civilian were injured when Muslim insurgents detonated a homemade bomb to ambush a Ranger patrol unit in a pickup truck. The incident occurred on Joh Kuayae-Sai Buri Road in Moo 1 village in Tambon Tabing in Sai Buri district. Jatuporn said his intelligence officers had learned that young Muslim fighters belonging to two groups led by Yakarina Bagno and Samal Sani carried out the bomb attack. Since the road was under construction, the authorities will also question the contractor, as workers should know best at which spots bombs could be hidden, Jatuporn said. Jatuporn said the 500 officials would check suspected hiding places of Muslim insurgents in the district. He said the impact of the loss of lives was incalculable and the killing had demoralised his personnel. He noted that two of the four slain rangers were involved in a project to support some 200 mentally challenged children in the area. “It’s regretful that we have lost these two officials after we have been trying to do good for the local people. We have been trying to do everything for the people and their children without dividing us and them,” Jatuporn said. “We love the children like our own children. Although this happened, we will continue the project.” Jatuporn said his taskforce has a list of suspected bombers and his officers have been trying to monitor moves of suspected insurgents. He added that his taskforce learned that the insurgents had sent online messages about the planned attack two days in advance, but it was difficult for the authorities to prevent ambushes.

  14. Burmese maid swore to Buddha she didn't steal - then cops find diamond encrusted Rolex Image: Daily News A Burmese maid who vowed before a statue of Buddha that she would never steal was obliged to take that back after a diamond encrusted Rolex was found in her bag. And there was also evidence that the 35 year old had been stealing from her aging employer before - there was a 600,000 baht bank transfer back to Rangoon. Earlier in the week 71 year old Nawarat Anuphapmark, had gone to Bang Khun Thian cops after her Rolex and four rings went missing. She confronted her maid Michowin who denied it. Michowin, 35, was taken to the police station where she strongly repeated her denial and even promised in front of a Buddhist image in the station to the effect that she had not taken the items worth 3 million baht. That was good enough for police who, besides, had no other evidence. But Michowin suddenly decided to end her employment as a maid after she had served in the house for four years and that suspicious behavior was enough for the cops to be called to the house. The Rolex and the rings were found hidden in a medicine container in her bag. After this, the first stop was to go back to the station to apologize to the Buddha for making a false vow. It would be terrible to have that hanging over her, reported Daily News. Then her employer told police about other missing jewelry worth one million baht that had gone missing over the years. She suspected her maid might have taken that too. Police checked the maid's bank books and saw that she had sent back a lot of money to Burma including one payment of 600,000. Her salary had been 14,000 baht a month. Source: Daily News -- © Copyright Thai Visa News 2017-09-23

Burglar gang strikes more Nonthaburi homes By The Nation Unknown burglars broke into four houses in the Preuksa Housing Estate 11 in Nonthaburi’s Pakkred district early on Friday night and ran off with valuables worth about half a million baht, the estate coordinator, Prasert Daengprasert, told police on Saturday. The same perpetrators broke into four homes within the 217-house estate in Soi Tha It and stole Bt2,000 cash from the house number 74/165; Bt5,000, a gold ring and an amount of King Rama IX commemorative banknotes from the house number 74/79, but didn't take anything from house number 74/113, said Prasert, age 63. They also stole valuables worth Bt400,000 to Bt500,000 from the last house, number 74/163, he said. The 74/163 home owner Kimatipat Chiewraksa said he had been on a trip to another province since September 17 and returned on Friday afternoon to find his home broken into and ornaments and valuables kept in the second-floor shrine room missing. Police believe the same burglars were behind robberies in two other housing estates in the same soi on the night of September 20.

  17. Trump mulls new order to replace travel ban, no decision yet By Yeganeh Torbati and Lawrence Hurley U.S. President Donald Trump looks on during his meeting with South Korean president Moon Jae-in during the U.N. General Assembly in New York, U.S., September 21, 2017. REUTERS/Kevin Lamarque WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump is considering a new order to replace his soon-to-expire travel ban on people from six Muslim-majority countries that would be tailored on a country-by-country basis to protect the United States from attacks, U.S. officials said on Friday. With the current ban on people from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen due to expire on Sunday, Trump was given recommendations by Elaine Duke, the acting homeland security secretary, but has not yet made a decision on the details of any new order, the officials told reporters. Miles Taylor, counsellor to Duke, said she recommended to Trump "actions that are tough and that are tailored, including travel restrictions and enhanced screening for certain countries." Taylor declined to say which or how many countries would be targeted, including the status of the six countries covered by the current ban. White House spokesman Raj Shah said that while "we can't get into decision-making," the next step will be a presidential proclamation setting out the new policy. He declined to say when that would come, including whether Trump would act before the existing ban expires. The American Civil Liberties Union, the rights group that mounted one of the legal challenges to the March order, expressed skepticism about Trump's forthcoming action. "This looks to be the Trump administration's third try to make good on an unconstitutional campaign promise to ban Muslims from the United States," ACLU Executive Director Anthony Romero said. Trump's six-nation travel ban was laid out in a March 6 executive order that was blocked by federal courts before being allowed to go into effect with some limits by the U.S. Supreme Court in June. Under the recommendations Trump is weighing, there would be restrictions on U.S. entry that differ by nation, based on cooperation with American security mandates, the threat the United States believes each country presents and other variables, Taylor said. He did not specify the nature of the restrictions, but said that after being imposed they could be lifted "if conditions change." The legal question of whether the existing ban discriminates against Muslims in violation of the U.S. Constitution, as lower courts previously ruled, will be argued before the Supreme Court on Oct. 10. Officials declined to say how the proposed change in policy could affect the upcoming Supreme Court case. The March travel ban and an earlier January one that targeted the same six countries as well as Iraq are some of the most controversial actions taken by Trump since assuming office in January. Critics have called the policy an unlawful "Muslim ban," accusing the Republican president of discriminating against Muslims in violation of constitutional guarantees of religious liberty and equal protection under the law, breaking existing U.S. immigration law, and stoking religious hatred. Trump, who has promised that "radical Islamic terrorism" will be "eradicated," wrote on Twitter on Sept. 15: "The travel ban into the United States should be far larger, tougher and more specific-but stupidly, that would not be politically correct!" WORLDWIDE REVIEW The expiring ban blocked entry into the United States by people from the six countries for 90 days and locked out most aspiring refugees for 120 days to give Trump's administration time to conduct a worldwide review of U.S. vetting procedures for foreign visitors. The existing refugee ban expires on Oct. 24. Taylor said American officials in July notified every foreign government of requirements for the minimum cooperation the United States needs to validate traveller identities to ensure they do not represent a national security threat. Those countries were given 50 days to respond. People from countries that did not meet the requirements may not be allowed to enter the United States or may face other travel restrictions, Taylor said. Most countries met those requirements or agreed to work toward meeting them, Taylor added. "At the end of the day, some countries were still unable or, worse yet, deliberately unwilling to comply with the new baseline that we laid out," Taylor said. Trump, who promised as a candidate to impose "a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States," has said the soon-to-expire ban was needed to protect the United States from terrorism. "We need to know who is coming into our country," Taylor said. "We should be able to validate their identities and we should be able to confirm that our foreign partners do not have information suggesting such individuals may represent a threat to the United States." While Trump's January and March orders were quickly blocked by federal courts, the expected new restrictions might be harder to challenge because they are the product of a worldwide review process examining vetting procedures of foreign countries, legal experts said. -- © Copyright Reuters 2017-09-23
