A sport scientist from the Krabi FC football association has been fired from the job after he was found with kratom at an airport on Tuesday (June 26).

Police at Don Mueang International Airport arrester 26 year old Teerayut Santiwong who was working as a sport scientist for the Krabi FC football team. He was found with 4 green tea bottles filled with kratom – total volume 2,100 millilitres – inside his luggage which had been transferred from Krabi International Airport to Don Mueang International Airport.

Teerayut admitted that he brought the kratom drink for himself, not for his footballers. He was taken to Don Mueang Police Station where he was charged with illegal possession of a Category 5 drug.

The President of Krabi FC, Somkiet Kittitorakun, says, “the football team was heading to Tak province in the western part of Thailand for the FA cup match with Mae Sot United football team yesterday (June 27).”

“Teerayut has been working for the team for about one year. He was a good employee but we didn’t realise that he may have had problems in relation to kratom.”

“We have to pay more attention in checking our footballers and staffers. If anyone is found involved with drugs, they will be fired immediately.”

A baby Risso’s Dolphin has been rescued after being found on Railay Beach in Krabi on Sunday.

Officials at the Department of Marine and Coastal Resources (DMCR) were notified that the baby dolphin was found of the east end of Railay Beach.

The DMCR says that the species is a baby Risso’s dolphin. This one is 250 centimetres long and weighs about 100 kilograms. The dolphin was weak and unable to swim by itself.

Wounds have been found around its head which marine staff believe was caused from being battered as it washed up onto the beach by waves.

The dolphin was taken to the Phuket Marine Biology Centre (PMBC) where it’s receiving love, attention and further treatment.

Risso’s dolphin is the only species of dolphin in the genus Grampus. It is commonly known as the Monk dolphin among Taiwanese fishermen. Some of the closest related species to these dolphins include: pilot whales, pygmy killer whales, melon-headed whales, and false killer whales.
