Progress on shooting/robbery of Russian woman in Rawai | The Thaiger
Police report that they’ve learned that the two thieves used a car to commit the crime on Tuesday night. The car was parked 100 metres away from the house where they robbed and shot Russian expat, Elena Kharenko. However, the color, brand and plate number hasn’t yet been ascertained.
The Chief of Region 8 Police, Maj. Gen. Pawat Prommakrit, has also joined in the investigation.
“This is a serious offense and police are providing a lot of resources and attention to it. We are gathering a great deal of evidence to catch the criminals. The conversation with Ms. Elena was also quite useful. She saw and remembers the two thieves breaking into her house,” said Pol Col Peerayut Karajedee.
Police also checked the CCTV cameras for the routes that the thieves used to escape and got some useful clues from them. Police remain confident that they will make an arrest over the matter.
Ms. Elena Kharenko continues to recover from her two gunshot wounds in Vachira Hospital.

New Thai E-Driving licences are 95% complete | The Thaiger

Thailand law makers are looking to amend the 1979 Land Transport act to bring together databases from the Road Transport and policing departments as registrations and enforcement combine to make a digital traffic violation ticketing system.

The National Legislative Assembly held a reading of the new bill yesterday (Thursday), which requires the Royal Thai Police and the Land Transport Department to work together to create an electronic database, comprised of registration information, traffic violations and motorist’s personal details.

Traffic police will then have an easier time recording point deductions and new violations for any ‘fast & furious’ drivers out there.

The amendment stipulates that anyone whose traffic balance points reach zero on their licence (they start with 12 points each calendar year) will face a 90 day licence suspension and will be subject to traffic regulation training.

A proposal to implement a full e-drivers license on a new phone App this week was delayed until the new amendments have been passed by the NLA.
