A press conference held at Dara Hotel on Saturday afternoon (May 19) was hosted by Emeral Development Group’s Sawit ‘Mai’ Ketroj.

Mr Sawit says, “News about Phuket Future Group Co.,Ltd. real estate projects, which is one of companies in Emerald Group located at Kalim Patong, has damaged us. The news has affected the Phuket real estate business and investors have lost confidence.”

“Now there are five companies in the group which have invested in condominiums and real estate in Phuket for more than 6 billion baht.”

“These companies are Kathu Golf Condo project by Emerald Development Group Co.,Ltd and The Emerald Terrace Condo Patong by Phuket Future Development Co.,Ltd which have now completed the constructions.”

“The Emerald – Central project by Phuket Capital Real Estate Co.,Ltd, The Emerald City Life Condo Patong by the Emerald  company which is now under construction. Emerald Nirvana 1 and 2 , Nirvana Lux and Jade Villa which are now under construction, are waiting for construction license.

“Only projects of Phuket Future Group Co.,Ltd. are the ones that have problems. Other projects are continuing. We have accounting documents that can be prove the situation about the Phuket Future Group.”

“The project cannot build following the schedule because it is on a 36 rai plot of land on a steep hill. We need to be careful about engineering and architecture work, especially for the safety. The project completion schedule has been updated three times. The project is scheduled to finish last year. Due to the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA). the construction is expected to be finished at the end of next year.”

“We have informed our customers about the problems. There are now 185 current customers, 98 customers cancelled their contracts. Some of them have been refunded. We are taking care of our customers as much as we can.”

“We are sure that our business will reach its target as we do not have financial problems now. We also have international alliances for investment.”

“About an issue that has been claimed that we have sold same condominium units to customers, twice, this is not true. The units will be sold to another customer when the old customer cancels the contract. We cannot do that to customers.”

About a condominium in Ao Nang, Sawait says the project was built in cooperation with a company who owns the land. The investment was later cancelled, but the owner of the land continue with the project.

Belarusian ‘Anastasia’ will be in Moscow detention another 3 days

Belarusian ‘Anastasia’ will be in Moscow detention another 3 days | The Thaiger

Anastasia Vashukevich, aka. Nastya Rybka, the Belarusian model/sex-educator/Instagramer who spent a year in a Thai jail awaiting last week’s Court case, and was then deported, remains in a Moscow jail as of last night after the presiding judge decided to extend her detention by 72 hours.

She was arrested at Moscow airport on Thursday after being deported from Thailand on Tuesday night. She, and seven others, pleaded guilty last Tuesday for participating in a “sex training course” in Pattaya nearly 12 months ago.

During a hearing yesterday in Moscow, she said she did not want to “in any way compromise aluminum mining magnate, Oleg Deripaska”.

According to Interfax she said in the hearing, ”I have had enough.”

Her lawyer Dmitry Zatsarinsky, told reporters that his young client “has committed no crime” and had “nothing to do with” Deripaska and “still less with US President Donald Trump”.

On Friday her lawyer denounced Anastasia’s arrest, which was made while she was in transit in Moscow after a flight from Thailand on her way to Belarus.

The Belarusian gained notoriety last year when she claimed she had proof of Russian collusion with the Trump Presidential election campaign. She has now had her detention in Moscow extended by three days by a Russian court.

According to Interfax reports, she told the court she denied the accusation of prostitution, telling the court that “I am not guilty of what I am accused.”

She unexpectedly pleaded guilty in a Bangkok court to charges of prostitution relating to last February’s sex training course in Pattaya. The Thai judge suspended the group’s sentences but deported them, effective immediately.

Anastasia had been in custody in Thailand since a police raid in what AFP described as the “sleazy seaside resort of Pattaya” last February.

New 500 baht fine for drunk cycling | The Thaiger

Up to now drink-driving cyclists have not been included in the laws governing drunk drivers of other vehicles in Thailand. But with the rising popularity of cycling as a fitness trend, that’s about to change with a new 500 baht fine if bought drunk in control of a bike.

Drunk bicyclists who are currently immune to litigation because there is no law to make drunk cycling an offence. The new laws are covered in the upgraded traffic bill which passed the first reading of the National Legislative Assembly last week.

But, according to the Bill drafters, riding bicycles in public while being drunk is still regarded as a petty offence and the penalty would be just a 500 baht fine.

The same new traffic bill also seeks to empower traffic police to seize driving licenses of drivers found to be drunk behind the wheels and judged incapable of driving.

The bill will also merge the Land Transport Department and police databases to coordinate and share information on backgrounds and traffic violations records of drivers and motorcyclists.

A score system is being introduced under which law-breaking drivers will have their scores cut for every traffic violation.  Everyone will start a 12 month period with 12 points. If the scores are down to zero, the drivers will have their driving licenses suspended for up to 90 days.
