    Students ask Prayut to cancel student conduct regulations By The Nation Photo credit FB : Sa-nguan Khumrungroj The Student Union of Thailand has called on junta leader PM General Prayut Chan-o-cha to cancel the controversial regulations controlling student conduct.

  2. Students ask Prayut to cancel student conduct regulations By The Nation Photo credit FB : Sa-nguan Khumrungroj The Student Union of Thailand has called on junta leader PM General Prayut Chan-o-cha to cancel the controversial regulations controlling student conduct. Citing a serious infringement on privacy and their rights to political expression, the union, led by activist Parit “Penguin” Chiwarak, submitted a letter asking the Education Ministry to cancel the plan on Friday. They carried banners saying “Stop taking away our freedom!” The Cabinet had approved the Education Ministry’s revamp of the regulations on August 14, which prohibits students from public assembly that may cause disorder or are against good morals. It also bans inappropriate acts of affection, as well as acts that cause public nuisance. Violators would receive warnings, have their holistic points taken off, or undergo behavioural changing activities. Once published in the Royal Gazette, the regulation will be fully enforced. The union found the prohibition of public gathering too broadly defined and may be aimed at taking away their freedom to express political ideas or organise political rallies. “What if public gatherings are interpreted to include expression of [political] ideas, how can students like us express our opinions about the government and the Education Ministry?” asked Parit. “We want the regulation cancelled and students’ rights protected,” he said. Education Ministry spokesperson Karun Sakulpradit promised the regulation would never be used for political ends. He said public gatherings in the regulation did not include political expressions or actions, but target students engaged in brawls, speed racing and drugs. “The regulation will not be twisted [to achieve political purposes]. It is not a political agenda,” he confirmed. Education Minister Dr Teerakiat Jareonsettasin gave assurances the new regulations were not a political move. The regulations needed to be revised in line with modern society, he said. Source: http://www.nationmultimedia.com/detail/national/30352395 -- © Copyright The Nation 2018-8-17

    Police summon 8 bitcoin scam suspects By The Nation Former Army Captain Thammanat Prompao Full Story: https://www.thaivisa.com/forum/topic/1053274-police-summon-8-bitcoin-scam-suspects/
  6. Police summon 8 bitcoin scam suspects By The Nation Former Army Captain Thammanat Prompao The police Crime Suppression Division (CSD) has issued summonses for eight more people, as part of the investigation into the alleged Bt800-million bitcoin investment scam in which a Finnish bitcoin-owner was lured into transferring the cryptocurrency for bogus investment in Thai stocks and other assets. CSD deputy chief Col Chakrit Sawasdee said on Friday that, among the eight summoned individuals, former army captain Thammanat Prompao, who allegedly received shares from the fugitive suspect Parinya Jaravijit, was to testified to police on August 28. Chakrit said that if Thammanat could not explain the legal origin of his assets and shares, he could be charged with money-laundering. A police source, in the meantime, revealed that Thammanat was now in another province and will give a press conference about the scandal next week. Chakrit said the investigators divided the eight individuals into two groups. The first group of five to testify during August 28-29 faced evidence ready to file a charge of fraud, the police said. They are actor Jiratphisit "Boom" Jarawitchit, the actor's elder brother Parinya Jaravijit, the actor's other sibling Thanasit Jaravijit, businessman Chakris Ahmad and well-known stock investor Prasit Srisuwan. Jiratphisit and Parinya have already been charged with money-laundering. The former was arrested on August 8 and the latter was charged in absentia. The second group to testify on August 27-28 was Thammanat and Jiratphisit’s parents Lertchatkamon and Suwit Jaravijit. The parents were to testify on August 27 about the Bt90 million Parinya had reportedly wired into their bank accounts for which they must provide the legal origin of it or they may face a money-laundering charge too. A police source said Thanasit had phoned to postpone his interview saying he was gathering documents to fight the allegations and was in process of negotiating with Parinya to return from overseas to surrender to police together, but the investigator insisted Thanasit must meet police as per the summon.

  14. Jason Bourne TV spin-off Treadstone is becoming a full series BY ADAM SILVERSTEIN The TV show being spun off from the Jason Bourne movies is becoming a full series. First announced back in April, Treadstone – from Heroes creator Tim Kring – hasn't even made a pilot yet, but USA Network is clearly confident that its telly version of the Matt Damon franchise will do well. The show will explore the origin story and present-day actions of a CIA black ops programme known as Treadstone – a covert operation that uses behaviour modification protocol to turn its agents into nearly-unstoppable superhuman assassins. The first season will follow sleeper agents – none of whom will be played by Damon, of course – across the globe as they're mysteriously "awakened" to resume their deadly missions.
