Thai man accidentally kills himself with homemade bomb | Thaiger

A young Thai man has accidentally killed himself with a homemade bomb in the Muang district of Kanchanaburi province this morning. 22 year old Amornthep Thongchomphu was found dead with his arm blown off after the bomb exploded in a field near his home.

Local police went to the scene at about 11am, outside the man’s house in Ban Nong Kung village of tambon Ban Thum. Police found the man’s dead body along with a scorched, ruptured PVC pipe. Village headman Boonruam Somwongsa says Amornthap stayed alone in the house as his mother worked abroad, sending home money. He was apparently jobless and was not known to socialise.

Boonruam says the man allegedly had a dispute with a neighbour previously and on 2 occasions had thrown a small bomb at his neighbour’s house, leading him to file a complaint. Boonruam says it was likely that Amornthep was making another bomb to throw at his neighbour when it accidentally detonated.

The Ban Ped police chief says another small homemade bomb was found at Amornthep’s house, with its components being possibly bought from online.

    Strangely enough, The Thaiger has kept very quiet about this news story involving Rama 10!! However, there appears to be many ‘other’ news agencies going to print on this shocking revelation!
    ‘DOMESTIC ABUSE’ IS RIFE IN THAILAND AND ITS HEAD OF STATE SHOULD HOLS HIS ‘HEAD IN TOTAL SHAME’….NO MAN SHOULD HURT A WOMAN LIKE HE HAS DONE!!

    Love stories like this!
    Happy Ending!

    Next, I want to see someone (wannabe Zorro) who has threatened another person with a sword.

    Then Zorro goes home, decides to do a TicToc video of a daring act.

    He swallows his sword and falls to the ground with massive internal bleeding… and croaks.
    Another future happy ending!

    There was a video a few years back about a Thai shaman who had an act in which he magically could not be pierced by a sword. I think you can guess what happened. Not exactly Zorro, but, oh well.

    police say he didnt resist arrest and was unarmed when they arrived.
    there was an initial stand off when police ordered him to come out with his hands in the air.
    hed been operating as a bandit so police will now charge the 1 armed bandid for illegal gambling.

    Mr Jim Kelly…
    Just a suggestion for you.
    There is a reason that Thai Media and Thai people are not writing bad things about the King or the Monarchy…

    They do not want to be locked up!

    I strongly suggest, especially if you are in Thailand, to not criticize the King or the Monarchy.

    And doubly, especially write or post things to the media here.

    Even if you are using a ghost name…

    Good Luck Mate!

    he suspected something was not quite right with his bomb design but couldn’t quite put his finger on it.

    I’m amazed the Jim Kelly posts have been allowed to be published (and remain published) in the “Thaigers” comments section. Have Thailand’s lèse-majesté laws no longer being enforced, or are Jim Kelly and the “Thaiger” playing a very dangerous game with their liberty?

    Well, you gotta hand it to the guy. He single-handedly completed the mission with only 1 casualty. A man outstanding in his field. Mom won’t need to pay his allowance anymore. It was probably costing her an arm and a leg.

Immigration police arrest Frenchman on drug charges, 3 other foreigners for overstay | Thaiger

Immigration police arrested a French man who was allegedly involved in a crime network who allegedly smuggled cannabis, and arrested 3 other foreigners on overstay charges. Police say the crime network sold cannabis to foreigners living in tourist cities in Thailand.

Officers say they suspect there are more people involved in the alleged smuggling operation on the Eastern seaboard, which includes Chon Buri and Rayong. Police are now launching an investigation.

Police were tipped off earlier this year about an alleged French gang selling cannabis to tourists. Apparently, the drug suspects would rent rooms to store the cannabis and frequently change locations. Foreigners had rented a room off a soi in Bangkok, but the manager noticed they were acting suspicious. No one appeared to actually be living in the room and people would stop by the room for less than an hour, the manager told police.

Police arrested a man who was stopping by the room. Officers say the 28 year old, identified as Samy, had a suitcase filled with dried cannabis and scales. He faces charges for possession and distribution of a Category 5 narcotic.

The police went to the man’s apartment in the Charoen Nakhon area and arrested 2 French nationals, ages 27 and 28, and a 29 year old woman from the UK for overstaying their visas. Police say they had thrown cannabis and smoking equipment out the window before officers entered the room.

Thailand hoping to be upgraded to a Tier 1 nation in anti-human trafficking efforts

Thailand hoping to be upgraded to a Tier 1 nation in anti-human trafficking efforts | Thaiger

Thailand is hoping its newest anti-human trafficking report will earn an upgrade from the US from Tier 2 to Tier 1. The report was submitted to the Washington’s Trafficking in Persons Report. Deputy government spokeswoman, Rachada Dhnadirek, said the government is ready to be upgraded after remaining on Tier 2 for 3 years in a row. Those nations who fall on the Tier 2, are deemed to not be fully complying with the minimum standards set out in the US’ Trafficking Victims Protection Act. Those on the Tier 2, however, are supposed to be making efforts to comply with the minimum standards.

Before 2018, Thailand was placed in Tier 3, which is for nations who don’t fully comply with the minimum standards and are not making efforts to do so. Then, Thailand was upgraded to Tier 2 after making progress compared to the previous year.

Rachada says Thailand submitted the 2020 TIP Report on February 2 and a report on progress in its anti-human trafficking operations from January to March of this year to the US embassy on April 3. The data includes the number of arrests and punishments for human-trafficking offences. Thailand also has created a new plan, making it the first in Asia to introduce such a plan. That plan is called the National Action Plan on Business and Human Rights.

Rachada says now Thailand is processing human trafficking cases more quickly by shortening the investigation time to 70 days as of last year. In 2015, the investigation time was 118 days. She says the country has also set up centres to help LGBT human-trafficking victims as well as helping migrant workers with work-related issues.

Thailand has also introduced the PROTECT-U app for smartphones in which human-trafficking victims can access protection and launch complaints in 7 different languages. The app was developed by the Social Development and Human Security Ministry.

Phuket man shot by off-duty police officer now paralysed

Phuket man shot by off-duty police officer now paralysed | Thaiger
Phuket Police Station / Google Maps

A 25 year old Phuket man who was allegedly beaten and shot by an off-duty, drunken police officer, will never walk again as he remains paralysed in the hospital. The news, according to doctors at Vachira Phuket Hospital, comes after Aroon Thongplab, was shot from a close range, with the bullet hitting his spine.

The man was a noodle vendor and was collecting a bowl from a customer on Bangla Road when he was allegedly shot by Pornthep Channarong of the Phuket Provincial Police at around 6am. Doctors told his wife about his prognosis after he woke up from a coma and underwent surgery to increase his prospects of being able to sit up. His wife, who is only known by her surname as Kulthida, told The Phuket News that she received news that he would never walk again.

“He cannot feel or move the lower part from his waist. Doctors just gave him spine surgery last week, so that he can sit. However, the doctors cannot assure that the surgery will work. We have to wait to see if his recovery goes well along with physiotherapy.”

Pornthep was discharged from the Royal Thai Police less than a day after he allegedly shot the noodle vendor. Now, he is facing charges of attempted murder, firing a weapon in a public area, and carrying a firearm in a public area without a necessary reason. But those charges have come slowly, according to Kulthida.

“I have already asked Patong Police, and they told me that at this stage the report to file (with the public prosecutor) is about 90% complete. I am also waiting for a notice from the court. Today, officers from Region 8 Police came to the hospital to question Aroon, but he has not been able to speak… I asked them about the bail conditions, and they told me that the suspect is still in jail.”

The Phuket Provincial Court is allowing Pornthep to go out on bail, despite the Royal Thai Police asking the court to keep in locked up.
