Feature: A look back at the top stories from this time period LAST year: Key witness in Red Bull heir case dead in car accident, two suspects arrested for daytime murder in South Pattaya, and more


The following is a weekly feature article looking at this same time period LAST year in Pattaya and Thailand news.

This weekly feature takes a look back at news from the same period last year (and sometimes different time windows, such as six months or three months) to see how things have changed, following up on the progression of stories, as well as look at potentially broken promises or things that didn’t take place as promised in Pattaya and Thailand.

As we publish dozens of stories a week this is a quick way for people to take a look at what the biggest stories were a year ago, as chosen by our editorial team, and how they impact us today and relate to current news. They are in no particular order of importance, however, are roughly in order of publication. This week, we cover the fifth week of JULY 2020, from Sunday, July 26th, 2020 to Saturday, August 1st, 2020.
