  2. Bt10m gem theft getaway motorcycle belonged to dead Thai man By The Nation The getaway motorcycle used in the theft of a Bt10 million diamond from a fake jewelry store in in Bangkok's Bang Rak district on Tuesday belonged to a long-deceased Thai man, police say. The motorcycle, which the two suspects abandoned at Soi Wat Doung Khae in Pathumwan district, was found on Thursday. Police are now investigating how it ended up being used by criminals. Although the motorbike carried no licence plate, police traced its ownership via the tax renewal sticker that identified the vehicle registration number as Kor Ror Thor 770 Lop Buri, said a police source. Earlier this week, police secured arrest warrants for theft suspect Pipatpongpat Suksawatpipat, 59, and his accomplice, who served as a getaway motorcyclist. The suspect was captured by CCTV footage fleeing on a waiting motorcycle from the front of a fake jewelry shop on Si Phraya Road. Police say the suspect got hold of the gem after posing as a jewelry trader and left the diamond owner, Indian businessman Jain Vaiphav, 44, locked in the shop. Vaiphav, who smashed a glass panel to get out and sustained a 20-stitch gash on his arm, had advertised the diamond for sale on a website. Police suspect that gave the thieves the idea to steal it by setting up a fake jewelry shop and luring the Indian businessman to hand over the gem during purchase negotiations. Meanwhile, national police deputy chief Pol General Chalermkiat Srivorakhan said police continued to search for the two suspects.

  8. Efforts renewed for improving students’ Chinese-language skills By The Nation File photo The Office of the Vocational Education Commission (OVEC) has again tapped China’s largest textbook-publishing house, Higher Education Press (HEP), to help improve Thai vocational students’ ability to speak Mandarin and meet the business sector’s needs. Panurut Klinpho, director of OVEC’s Bureau of Monitoring and Evaluation, said they will over the next five years improve and update textbooks, teachers’ handbooks and other curricular materials and organise short-term training for both students and teachers. Panurut presided at the signing of a memorandum of understanding on the project late last month at the OVEC office in Bangkok. It represents the second phase of the project, following successful collaboration with HEP in 2013 that produced two textbooks – “Chinese Language for Communication 1” for students pursuing a Por Wor Chor certificate and “Chinese Language for Education 2” for those pursuing a Por Wor Sor advanced certificate level.

    Ex-DSI head Tarit gets year in jail for libelling Suthep By The Nation Despite his confession, former Department of Special Investigation (DSI) director-general Tarit Pengdit was sentenced by the Supreme Court on Friday to a year in jail for libel.

  10. Ex-DSI head Tarit gets year in jail for libelling Suthep By The Nation Despite his confession, former Department of Special Investigation (DSI) director-general Tarit Pengdit was sentenced by the Supreme Court on Friday to a year in jail for libel. The highest court reversed the verdicts by the lower Criminal Court and the Appeals Court that found him not guilty of the charge. In February 2013, former deputy prime minister Suthep Thaugsuban filed the libel lawsuit against Tarit for having suggested that Suthep had employed political influence regarding bidding for a government project to build 396 police stations all over the country. Construction of the project has remained uncompleted until now. Earlier this week, the defendant submitted his written confession and withdrew his testimony given at trial at the lower courts. Also, Tarit on Thursday had his lawyer place a Bt100,000 payment with the court intended as compensation for the plaintiff. It was reported earlier that Tarit sought an out-of-court settlement with Suthep, 69, through mediation by a respected figure in legal circles. The DSI ex-chief, 60, showed up at the Supreme Court on Chaeng Wattana Road early on Friday morning, over an hour before the court was scheduled to read its verdict at 9am. The court rejected Tarit’s confession and withdrawal of testimony, explaining that those could not be done at this stage. Regarding Tarit’s claim that he had reached an out-of-court settlement with Suthep, the court said no accord had been reached through negotiation, as the plaintiff did not want to compromise. The court ordered that the defendant’s Bt100,000 payment returned. The top court then sentenced Tarit to a year’s imprisonment without suspension. After the verdict, he was accompanied by Corrections Department officials to Bangkok Remand Prison. In his lawsuit, Suthep claimed that while serving as the DSI chief, Tarit had held press conferences between January 21 and February 4, 2013. Tarit told the media that the former deputy premier had instructed the Royal Thai Police, which was then under his supervision, to limit bidding to only one contractor for the entire country-wide project rather than allow bids for one contractor for each of the 10 regional police bureaux. Suthep’s lawyer Sawat Charoenpol said on Friday that Tarit had sought an out-of-court settlement with the plaintiff, through mediation by many senior figures including former attorney general Kanit Nanakorn. “But Suthep did not agree to a settlement because he had to consult with his legal team,” the lawyer said.

  12. Ten celebrities face charges over Magic Skin advertising By Suriya Patathayo The Nation Only 10 of 46 celebrities who advertised Magic Skin products that were allegedly substandard cosmetic and health supplement products, will face legal actions as the charges against 36 have expired under the statute of limitations. National police deputy chief Pol General Weerachai Songmetta said on Friday that five actors/actresses, four "Net Idol" celebrities, and a beauty queen, were summoned to hear the charge of violating the Food Act on December 24 and 27. The charges involve illegal advertising of products’ benefits, quality and properties for commercial gain (punishable by a fine of up to Bt5,000). Weerachai declined to reveal the offenders full names to protect their constitutional rights, as it is a petty offence with a light punishment. The authorities had initially identified 59 celebrities in 106 advertisement pieces allegedly linked to the controversial Magic Skin products. So far, 46 of them were found to have violated the Food Act 1979's Article 41. The decision on whether the remaining individuals had violated the Food Act would be disclosed next month, said Food and Drug Administration adviser and pharmacist Somchai Preechathaweekit. Weerachai also said that public prosecutors had already started indicting executives of Magic Skin and associate companies. Those linked to Treechada cosmetics were indicted on December 13 and others would be indicted on December 20. Those linked to Mezzo and Fern products would be indicted on December 18.
