  2. Police sting nets thieves, pickup stolen in Samut Prakan retrieved 800km away By Jessada Jantarak The Nation Police have successfully located a pickup truck about 800 kilometres away from Samut Prakan province, where it was stolen. The vehicle was found in the possession of Sompong Champa and Jakrapob Leenatham in Nakhon Si Thammarat province, who were planning to sell the vehicle. An undercover police operation led to the arrest of both men. Jakrapob told police that he bought the pickup from a man whose identity is being withheld for now to ensure the ongoing police investigation would not be affected. “I bought it at Bt90,000 and I planned to sell it at Bt125,000,” Jakrapob said. Deputy Metropolitan Police Commissioner Pol Maj-General Panurat Lakboon said on Thursday that Jakrapob had operated vehicle-mortgage services in Thailand’s South. “He is a major operator in Nakhon Si Thammarat and Surat Thani,” said Panurat.

  4. Video: Woman pick-up driver runs over motorcyclist but says she didn't flee the scene! CCTV at a U-Turn showed a pick-up collide with a woman on a motorcycle and drag her along the road before seemingly fleeing the scene of the accident. TNews presenters on TV were some of the first to suggest that police must hunt down the driver of the pick-up without delay. They expressed amazement that the driver didn't see the motorcyclist then drove off after running her down. But the driver of the pick-up did not need to be hunted at all. She was found to have stopped just meters down the road just out of view of the CCTV. Her name was Kaysorn Pensawat, 39, and she got out of her vehicle and went to see what she had done. Fortunately the female motorcyclist was only slightly hurt. There were many Good Samaritans already on the scene - including a dog that came to help. The police have charged Kaysorn with negligent and reckless driving causing injury and damage to property. TNews reported in online media later that Kaysorn was a Thai tourist from out of town. Their headline suggested in reference to people who claimed that she fled the scene that there is always two sides to every story.

    Taxis and public buses fine and dandy at Suvarnabhumi - almost Inspectors from the Department of Land Transport swooped on Bangkok's main airport on Wednesday taking a long hard look at taxis and public buses carrying passengers on the fourth and first floors.

  6. Taxis and public buses fine and dandy at Suvarnabhumi - almost Inspectors from the Department of Land Transport swooped on Bangkok's main airport on Wednesday taking a long hard look at taxis and public buses carrying passengers on the fourth and first floors. Chief Inspector Saksit Bunsanga said that he was happy there was not much lawbreaking - certainly less than usual. The swoop followed public unrest caused in part by YouTuber Danny Mac who had a bad experience in a taxi that was posted online and went viral. Saksit tol JorSor 100 said that his men were on the lookout for illegal cabs and other public transport breaking the law. He said that transport from the airport was right in the public eye and highly visible to tourists. If there were problems posts were made online causing damage to the country so his men and the drivers themselves realize there is high importance attached to providing a good service. He made no reference to the YouTube post. Some 18 vehicles were found to be breaking the law. Of these 15 were taxis with five red plates being used, 3 drivers were without licences, two that had had no meter checks and 5 which exceeded the 9 year limit on taxi age. The last of these were ordered to have their status changed to that of private cars. Three public buses were found to contravene the regulations - one with a broken window, one with no tax and one with too many seats. Saksit said cases of lawbreaking were down on the usual amount due to the strict measures enforced at the airport especially on the first floor where arriving passengers are met and taken to city destinations and elsewhere.

  8. Video: Motorist's lucky escape as "UFO" lands in front of his car! A motorist driving on the Pathum Thani to Rangsit Road on Wednesday had a lucky escape when what appeared to a fellow driver as a "UFO" landed in front of his car. The huge round piece of metal seemingly came out of nowhere and was caught on the following car's dash cam. The footage was uploaded by "Leum Jeeworn" and found its way onto the Thaivisa page on Facebook before Thai Rath took up the challenge of finding out where the mysterious flying object had come from. They needed to look no further than the V and P Global company on the road leading towards Rangsit. The company mixes cement. Manager Chamnan Meewai said that one of two mixing silos had exploded while being moved sending the cover crashing onto the surface of the road. "Leum Jeeworn" was the one that suggested jokingly that it was a UFO. He stopped briefly to inquire after the driver of the white car that stopped ahead of him but despite being shocked all was well.

    Thai sex workers in Germany may be charged with not having work permit By Suriya Patatayoh The Nation Pol General Thammasak Witchayara, chairman of the subcommittee on anti-transnational human trafficking chairs a meeting on Thursday. Thais rounded up in Germany’s biggest crackdown on crime rings, which are suspected of smuggling hundreds of women and transsexuals from Thailand for prostitution, were likely to be charged first with working as prostitutes without work permit.

  12. Thai sex workers in Germany may be charged with not having work permit By Suriya Patatayoh The Nation Pol General Thammasak Witchayara, chairman of the subcommittee on anti-transnational human trafficking chairs a meeting on Thursday. Thais rounded up in Germany’s biggest crackdown on crime rings, which are suspected of smuggling hundreds of women and transsexuals from Thailand for prostitution, were likely to be charged first with working as prostitutes without work permit. Deputy national police chief Pol General Srivara Rangsibhramanakul said on Thursday that while prostitution is legal in Germany sex workers have to have a work permit. Srivara said he had already assigned the Foreign Affairs and AntiHuman Trafficking divisions to seek more information about Wednesday’s nationwide raids. The divisions were also ordered to examine all aspects to know who was involved in the racket. The guilty people would certainly be severely punished, Srivara said. Meanwhile, Pol General Thammasak Witchayara, chairman of the subcommittee on anti-transnational human trafficking, said the Thai side would contact Germany to know details about the crackdown. Thai and German police have been cooperating in tackling human trafficking, Thammasak said, adding his side is considering sending police officers to Germany as some Thais were detained in the case. It is not yet known how many Thais have been detained in the crackdown, which involved a record 15,000 officers raiding more than 60 brothels and flats in 12 of Germany’s 16 states. Prosecutors have 56 suspects in their sights, 41 of them women. Among the arrested were seven people suspected of having been leaders in the ring, one of them a 59-year-old Thai woman who was identified as leader of the crime network that smuggled Thai women and transsexuals to Germany with fraudulent visas for forced prostitution. The woman and her 62yearold German partner were taken into custody on outstanding arrest warrants. The rest of the detainees could be treated as victims. The women brought to Germany “had to hand over 100 per cent of their wages to the operators of the respective ‘massage parlours’ to pay off their smuggling fee”, ranging from 16,000 euros (Bt640,000) to 36,000 euros, AFP quoted Alexander Badle, spokesman for the Frankfurt prosecutor’s office, as saying. He said that other than human trafficking, forced prostitution, procurement and embezzlement of wages, the ring leaders also face charges of tax evasion. Some of the suspects could face up to 15 years in prison. Germany’s Interior Minister Horst Seehofer said that several hundred women and men were at the mercy of the inhumane, boundless greed of human smugglers for years and across borders. He said that while the Thai victims were aware that they were being taken to German brothels, they were duped about the “conditions, including the fact that they would receive virtually no remuneration”. They were brought to Europe on tourist visas that explicitly prohibited work, and spoke no German, leaving them particularly vulnerable to exploitation, Badle added. He said immigration authorities would now examine the victims’ legal status to determine how long they could stay in Germany.

    Alibaba backs Thailand 4.0 Today at a ceremony witnessed by Deputy Prime Minister Somkid Jatusripitak, China’s ambassador Lyu Jian and the executive chairman of the Alibaba Group, Jack Ma, the Thai government and Alibaba entered into a strategic partnership to drive the development of the Thai digital economy and the Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC) under the Thailand 4.0 policy. Under the partnership, the government and Alibaba will work closely together in a number of areas, including e-commerce, digital logistics, tourism and training. They signed a letter of intent in 2016 that kickstarted a number of joint efforts to bolster the capacity of Thai entrepreneurs to gain access to new markets and taking advantage of digital innovations. The deputy prime minister said: “Confident in the promising outlook of the Thai economy, the Thailand 4.0 policy and the high potential of the EEC development, Alibaba has decided to invest in a smart digital hub in the EEC. The hub will be an important platform to link Thai SMEs [small- and medium-sized enterprises] and Otop [One Tambon One Product] and agricultural products to, not only China, but also other markets. “The strategic cooperation with Alibaba will bring benefits to Thai SMEs and farmers as well as the tourism industry, while pushing forward digital economic development in Thailand,” Somkid said. Ma told the media: “China is on its way to becoming the world’s largest consumer, driven by rising income and a growing middle class of 300 million. There is no better time than now for trade-oriented countries to seize this opportunity to export to China as the country continues to open its doors wider for global trade. Quality Thai agricultural products such as fragrant rice, durian and other tropical fruit in particular are sought after by the Chinese consumer,” said the co-founder of Alibaba. “Given Thailand’s unique strengths in people and culture, we are confident of its future and growth potential under the government’s Thailand 4.0 policy. We are committed to being a long-term partner of Thailand to help enable its digital transformation.” Source: http://www.nationmultimedia.com/detail/breakingnews/30343496 -- © Copyright The Nation 2018-4-19
