Ay, caramba!

A Mexican restaurant owner in Silom Soi 4, Bangkok, has had enough of a stall selling sex toys and sex aids in front of his store. He’s complaining that his customers have to push their way past the vibrators and fake Viagra to get to his nachos and tacos.

He says he’s convinced that ‘persons of influence’ are behind the stall that he claims are threatening his staff.

35 year old Dechapong Jantharusorn, the owner of Sunrise Taco at the end of Silom Soi 4, says he has complained to police who did nothing after the owner of the stall said he rented from him.

That was nonsense, he said. Dachapong said that he had rented there for nearly 5 years and the sex store came along after. After a crackdown they disappeared but then they came back, with inside knowledge about when the crackdown was going to happen.

Dechapong says the stall owners are annoying and blocking his frontage and now were even intimidating his staff when asked to move on. Yesterday he went to the Crime Suppression Division and asked for help. Pol Col Thongchai Yookate promised to investigate.

The mother of a 4 year old girl described how her daughter survived a snake bite received while sitting on the toilet, proof that nowhere is safe from the reptiles that lurk in Thailand’s sewers. Audy Punnada Leung-Aram warned other parents on Facebook after reporting the terrifying incident at her condominium near Onnut Skytrain Station.

At about 5am, she took the girl to the toilet and placed her on the seat. As she was lifting her off, a snake struck out from the bowl and bit the child on her backside before disappearing back down the pipe. Alerted by his wife’s screams, the father ran to the toilet and attempted to suck the venom from the child’s wound.

The parents then rushed the child to hospital, where doctors confirmed there was no venom in the wound. Though she survived, the incident left the girl traumatised and afraid of going to the toilet.

34 year old Thai activist and civil rights lawyer and Arnon Nampha was arrested this afternoon for “sedition” and “breaching the emergency decree”. He was apprehended in front of his Bangkok condominium at around 2pm, according to the head of Thai Lawyers for Human Rights, Yaowalak Anuphan. He is currently in police custody.

“Arnon can only be detained no more than 48 hours before he has to be presented to the court. Then, he will likely seek bail.”

Earlier today, Arnon posted a photo of his arrest warrant on social media. The warrant accused him of committing seditious acts under article 116 of the Criminal Code, which carries a maximum penalty of 7 years in prison. He is also charged with defying the Emergency Decree, which bans large gatherings (the provision banning gatherings expired on August 1).

The charges followed his speeches on Monday calling for a reform of the Monarchy. Arnon couldn’t be reached for comment.

Yaowalak says the warrant named Arnon as the seventh suspect, suggesting his arrest is part of a larger crackdown on pro-democracy activists. Thai Lawyers for Human Rights says at least 1 other activist has also been also arrested.

The group identified him as Panupong Jadnok, the activist who was arrested when he tried to hold up banners protesting PM Prayut Chan-o-cha’s visit to Rayong province last month.

Crime

The phone of a key witness in the “Boss” case was stolen and destroyed

It’s now been revealed that the phone of a key witness in the Boss Yoovidhya hit-and-run case was stolen and destroyed after the witness died in a Chiang Mai traffic incident last week. It’s the latest in a long list of wtf moments in the botched 8 year long investigation.

40 year old Jaruchat Madthong died last Wednesday after colliding with another rider on his motorcycle. The man’s phone went missing, again triggering outrage and public doubt that it could have been stolen to destroy vital evidence.

Jaruchat Madthong was one of 2 new witnesses that have turned up, claiming that they were following Boss’s car on September 3, 2012 when his Ferrari ran into the back of 47 year old duty policeman, Wichian Klanprasert in the Thong Lor area of Bangkok. The policeman died after being dragged 100 metres along the road.

The 2 witnesses emerged only recently and were used as evidence for the Office of the Attorney General to drop the most serious charge against Boss, that of “reckless driving causing death”. Jaruchat and the other ‘key’ witness told investigators that they saw the policeman’s motorbike veer in front of Boss’s car and said that the Ferrari was travelling under the 80 kilometre per hour speed limit, a lot slower than the alleged 177 kph that forensic investigators ascertained was the car’s speed following the incident.

That dropping of charges is now officially under review by an independent panel after the PM intervened and ordered the situation be reviewed.

Police and independent investigators yesterday questioned Jaruchat’s employer, a former Chiang Mai senator Chuchai Lertpongadisorn. They discovered that Chuchai’s PA, known as “Lan”, had stolen the phone and destroyed it. This was reported to the media by the head of the Chiang Mai chief of the local investigation. But the investigation heard that Lan had removed the sim card from the phone and left it outside Jaruchat’s house.

Questions are now raised why the phone of a key witness in a high-profile hit-and-run case was not immediately impounded following the collision and death of the man.

Lan claimed he was close to Jaruchat and had stolen the phone because he did not want to be linked with the hit-and-run case as he was running in a local election, according to police. Lan told investigators that he stole the phone from the hospital where Jaruchat was taken following the road incident.

Jaruchat’s mother was called to listen to his testimony, after which police charged Lan with theft. Initial investigation of Lan and his family’s financial history found nothing suspicious, said police.

“The sim card will be examined for any information that links Lan with the case.”
