The National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) filed charges against Mr Suthep in court on Tuesday (November 30th) Bangkok Post.

Mr Suthep faces the indictment, along with four other people and the company contracted to build the projects while serving as deputy prime minister in the Abhisit Vejjajiva government.

He is accused of combining all construction projects into one and placing the orders with a single contractor who was not finished.

The defendants also included two members of the committee that approved the projects on Tuesday. You have failed to review the company’s bid prices, which were found to be abnormally low.

The court has scheduled the first hearing for February 17th next year.

The NACC started working on the case two years ago. The agency carefully examined the minutes of the meetings and other documentary evidence.

Mr Suthep was also accused of failing to consult his ministerial colleagues on changes to construction contracts after they were merged. It also granted a private company the right to be the sole contractor rather than splitting contracts between different companies.

The former prime minister is also charged with breaking the 1999 price fixing law. One project involves the construction of 396 police stations valued at B 5.84 billion, which has been approved by Mr Abhisit’s cabinet.

Many of the police stations were left unfinished when the contractor, the only company working on so many sites at once, allegedly disposed of the project.

The NACC also found grounds for allegations related to the construction of 163 police apartments proposed as part of the police station project. The same company was also hired to build the apartments, which also suffered delays.

NAY PYI TAW: Overthrown Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi is expected to hear the verdict in her incitement trial on Tuesday November 30th, the first in a catalog of judgments passed in a junta court that her could be imprisoned for decades.

The Nobel Prize winner has been imprisoned since the generals overthrew her government in the early hours of February 1, ending the brief democratic interlude in the Southeast Asian country.

More than 1,200 people were killed and over 10,000 arrested in cracking down on dissenting views, according to a local surveillance group.

Suu Kyi faces three years in prison if found guilty of incitement to the military – just one of the charges analysts say is aimed at removing the icon of democracy from the political arena for good.

However, the junta’s plans for Suu Kyi are unknown and the authorities may delay the verdict.

Journalists are banned from trials in the special court in the military-built capital of Nay Pyi Taw, and their lawyers are banned from speaking to the media.

Days after the coup, Suu Kyi faced obscure allegations of owning unlicensed walkie talkies and violating coronavirus restrictions during the election that her National League for Democracy (NLD) won in 2020.

The junta kept adding charges, including violation of the Official Secrets Act, corruption and electoral fraud.

Suu Kyi now appears in the junta’s courtroom most days of the week, with her legal team saying the hectic schedule over the past month has put a strain on the 76-year-old’s health.

“I think it is almost certain that Suu Kyi will face a harsh sentence,” said David Mathieson, a former Myanmar-based analyst.

“The question is, what will her incarceration be like? … will she get average convict treatment in an overcrowded female cell block or privilege in a VIP state house?”

She spent Suu Kyi’s long house arrest under a former junta at her family’s colonial mansion in Rangoon, where she appeared before thousands gathered on the other side of her garden fence.

Min Aung Hlaing’s regime has locked her and a small staff in an unknown location in the isolated capital.

Her connection to the outside world was limited to brief pre-trial interviews with her lawyers, who conveyed news and messages to her supporters.

When she first appeared in court, she used them to send a defiant message, vowing the NLD would stand, and calling on the faithful parties to remain united.

On her 76NS Birthday in June supporters across the country posted pictures of themselves on social media with flowers in their hair – a signature Suu Kyi look for a long time.

Two days later, her legal team sent a message from Suu Kyi thanking her for the gesture.

But in October their team was hit by a gag order after delivering vivid testimony from deposed President Win Myint describing how he turned down a military offer to resign in order to save himself during the coup.

The trials of other senior members of the Suu Kyi NLD have now been completed and the junta has been sentenced to harsh sentences.

A former prime minister was sentenced to 75 years in prison earlier this month, while a close aide to Suu Kyi was sentenced to 20 years in prison.

The generals could later cut any sentence imposed on senior Suu Kyi, Mathieson said, despite cautioning not to expect mercy from the junta and its leader.

“How much compassion does Min Aung Hlaing have?”

PHUKET: The Southern Western Meteorological Center (Phuket MET), which is located near Phuket International Airport, has issued a weather warning of possible heavy rainfall towards the Andaman coast.

The recommendation followed the Thai Meteorological Service (TMD), which issued a warning today (November 25) that endangered areas across southern Thailand will be exposed from tomorrow to next Tuesday (November 26).

The Phuket MET’s weather warning stated that the heavy rains that are expected to hit the southern mainland provinces will be heading towards the Andaman Sea and crossing the coastal provinces of Phuket, Phang Nga, Trang and Satun.

The TMD weather alert for the south, issued earlier this morning, came when Nachaibuntham Lertsukhikasem, director general of the Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation (DDPM) issued a formal warning of flood, landslide and overcrowded reservoirs and overflowing river banks.

“Watch out for floods and landslides in Chumphon, Surat Thani, Nakhon Sri Thammarat, Phatthalung, Songkhla, Ranong, Trang, Pattani, Yala and Narathiwat,” said Lertsukhikasem.

Officials in the risk areas should monitor heavy rains in their areas, prepare for emergencies and notify the public of any danger in their areas, he added.

“A high pressure area with relatively strong cold air masses covers Upper Thailand and the South China Sea. As a result, the northeast monsoon that rules the Gulf of Thailand and the south will be quite strong. From November 24th to 26th, 2021 heavy rain in many areas and very heavy rain in some areas over the east coast [are forecast]. This can lead to flash floods, white water currents and water overflows [canal and reservoir] Banks, ”he said.

PHUKET: The Thailand Convention & Exhibition Bureau (TCEB) has launched a campaign to boost domestic MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Exhibitions) business on the island.

The campaign under the banners “Meeting in Thailand is Safer” and “10 Creative MICE Routes” aims to reduce Phuket’s dependence on foreign tourists and builds on the success of the TCEB campaign last year, said Pattanachai Singhavara, Director of the Southern Regional Office of the TCEB.

Mr Pattanachai held a press conference in Phuket Town last Thursday (November 18) to raise awareness of the campaign involving Phuket Lieutenant Governor Piyapong Choowong.

The Meeting in Thailand is Safer project, launched in 2020, has been well received, Pattanachai said, resulting in business spending of more than B237 million.

“In 2021, TCEB allocated a budget of B 20 million and developed a support request system to be fully digital via the ThaiMICEConnect.com platform, which is an easy way to get support via an e-MICE marketplace to apply. This helps to reduce the number of steps involved in organizing an event, ”said Pattanachai.

By November 12, 2021, 813 funding applications had been submitted via the online platform. “From today there are even more. The events submitted will support over 1,000 jobs, ”he added.

“According to our research, the economic impact of the Safe Thailand Conference Project is [sic] from April 16 to September 30, 2021 showed 43,530 people attended the events, which cost B $ 63 million to organize, ”Pattanachai said.

“During that period, 637 events were approved, resulting in 2,187 activities driving combined direct and indirect economic impacts from 119 million ecosystems,” he noted.

“The TCEB therefore plans to further focus on the domestic MICE market to reduce the risk of relying solely on foreign markets,” he said.

All supported events must fully comply with COVID-19 prevention measures, he added.

“In addition, the TCEB recently developed marketing tools in collaboration with the DMC Group, such as the ’10 Creative MICE Routes’ project [Destination Management Company] Designing ways to create new business opportunities, stimulate and advance public and private organizations. To organize meetings, seminars and activities across the country under safety and hygiene measures, ”continued Mr. Pattanachai.

“You can simply click to request a quote via www.thaimiceconnect.com as. A good response is expected as many provinces have started opening the city to activity and most of the people are fully vaccinated, “he said.

“In the meantime, the ‘Meeting in Thailand is Safer’ project will remain open for assistance from September 15 to December 15, 2021 or until the support budget is reached,” Pattanchai said.

As part of the project, event organizers can provide budget support of B15,000 for organizing activities for one day, but not less than 6 hours, and 30,000 Baht for organizing activities for two days and one night, such as meetings, seminars, training courses, request conferences, incentive trips, or even social activities and study trips, “or any activity in the community,” he added.

Requests for assistance must be made nine days before the activity begins, and activities must be completed by December 31, 2021, he said.

Phuket Lieutenant Governor Piyapong Chuwong spoke out clearly in favor of the campaign.

“Phuket is well known as a MICE destination and has the potential to capitalize on and enjoy MICE events both nationally and internationally in terms of venues, transportation and tourist attractions before and after meetings and seminars,” he said.

“It is also world famous as a destination for local and global MICE travelers who visit many places in Phuket every year. Whether it’s the old town of Phuket, the beach, the sea or the beautiful natural attractions; they are no less popular than anyone, ”he said.

“But with the epidemic of COVID-19 causing revenues from MICE activities and tourism to decline significantly, this has been a major challenge for all of us, from the community level to the local to the national level,” added he added.

“Before the Phuket Sandbox Project, more than 95% of the population in Phuket was engaged in services such as car rental, hotels and restaurants, all of which were disrupted. But since then [Sandbox] Project started in July and so far it has shown that business in the province has become more active, ”said V / Gov Piyapong.

“Now with the government policy to seriously open up the country, this will lead to a clearer picture of the economic movement, be it at meetings, seminars or activities of various organizations off-site.

“That is a good thing and should be done in cooperation with all industries, because when an event occurs, everyone benefits together. The “Meeting in Thailand is Safer” project will be another project that will help boost business across the province, ”he said.

Application forms are available from www.thaimiceconnect.com, Facebook: Thai MICE Connect or line: @thaimiceconnect. Alternatively, those interested in the campaign can call the TCEB on 02-793 3456 Monday through Friday from 8.30 a.m. to 5.30 p.m., except on public holidays.

PHUKET: Admiral Chum Arwong, second vice chairman of the Senate Tourism Committee and chairman of the subcommittee on marine tourism, inspected the main ports and piers in Phuket yesterday (November 18) to assess their readiness to receive tourists on small luxury cruises.

Adm Chum has been briefed on the facilities and procedures for receiving tourists, including immigration, customs formalities, public health measures, baggage management and other services to be performed in the ports,

Transport links between the ports and the airport, hotels and tourist attractions were also examined.

“Port readiness is important in promoting tourism in Phuket, especially in terms of our readiness to accommodate small cruise lines of up to 700 passengers,” said Adm Chum

Adm Chum inspected the new building at Phuket Deep Sea Port, which was built as part of the port’s expansion plan announced years ago, but which finally got going just before the COVID pandemic broke out.

Other ports and piers that Adm Chum inspected were Phuket Namchai Pier (also called “Visit Panwa Pier”) and Phuket’s main passenger port, Rassada Pier.

Accompanied by Adm Chum on his inspection tour were executives from Phuket Port Management (Phuket Deep Sea Port Company), the superintendent of Phuket Immigration, Phuket customs officers, staff from the Phuket Province Public Health Department (PPHO) and the director of the Phuket Province Marine Office Department.

It was explained to Adm Chum that the Phuket Deep Sea Port was originally built only for the transport of goods, namely for the export of rubber wood. smoked gum and palm oil.

In the meantime, however, the facilities have been upgraded to accommodate tourist arrivals with a new 980 square meter terminal building.

Adm Chum noted that it would be good for Phuket to be able to open the Deep Sea Port as a fully functional international passenger port.

“There needs to be an immigration process, vehicles waiting to pick up tourists, expanded areas to accommodate tourist taxis, prayer rooms, hospital rooms, duty-free centers, coffee shop zones, and so on,” he said.

“If it can be opened as a home port for small luxury cruises, according to international tourism development guidelines, it will be in line with the national strategy of attracting high-profile tourism as cruise lines increase tourism revenue more,” he added.

The resort hotel The Slate has launched a gender fluid collection with the fashion label This Is Fred.

The Phuket-based resort has partnered with London-based label to produce gender-specific and urban clothing inspired by The Slate’s own architecture and design.

The collection, which is based on the aesthetics of monochrome accents and the combination of hard and soft silhouettes by the architect Bill Bensley of The Slate, includes pants, tops, ponchos and jackets. Certain hand-sewn items have black and white stripes and appear when the fabric moves.

The collection is sold at Shades, The Slate’s gallery space, and is the first time a This Is Fred collection has been available in Thailand. The pieces will also be available for sale at The Stockroom, The Slate’s online retail store.

“This Is Fred has a similar brand philosophy to The Slate. Our brands have an avant-garde approach and a very bold mindset, ”said Na-Ranong.

BANGKOK, November 1st (Bernama): As of Monday, the night curfew will be lifted in Bangkok and three tourist destinations, namely Krabi, Phang-Nga and Phuket under “tourism sandbox areas” or “blue zones” and restaurants will be allowed to serve alcoholic beverages .

Although pubs, bars and entertainment venues will remain closed in these tourist-oriented areas, most restrictions on business and leisure activities will be lifted as the kingdom will welcome fully vaccinated travelers from 46 countries and low risk areas from November 1st.

The easing of restrictions comes after Prime Minister Prayuth Chan o-cha chaired the Center on the Covid-19 Situation (CCSA) meeting today.

The spokesman for the Center for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA), Dr. Taweesin Visanuyothin said the CCSA today reduced the number of “maximally and strictly controlled areas” or dark red zones from 23 to seven, namely Chanthaburi, Tak, Nakhon Si Thammarat, Narathiwat, Pattani, Yala and Songkhla.

“In order to contain the outbreak of Covid-19 in the ‘dark red zones’, the curfew will remain from 11 p.m. to 3 a.m.,” he said today during the daily COVID-19 briefing here.

To date, Thailand has recorded 1,893,941 Covid-19 cases and 19,070 fatalities.

Meanwhile, Prayuth urged people and businesses to strictly observe and adhere to Covid-19 preventive measures to ensure the country’s safe reopening from Monday.

He also urged those with “opposing views” to work together and avoid creating a bad image for the country as the kingdom will welcome international travelers.

Thailand will be welcoming fully vaccinated visitors from 46 countries and low risk areas including Malaysia as of November 1, with visitors exempt from quarantine. – Bernama
