Greetings to all our readers and supporters!

We have gathered here our top LOCAL stories that happened in our areas, Pattaya and Chonburi, in the last week from Monday, December 5th, to Sunday, December 11th, 2022.

The stories are chosen by our editorial team and are not in a particular order of importance but roughly in order of publishing.

Let’s see what you might have missed!

1. A Thai woman sustained injuries when her jet ski crashed into another while heading back to the beach in Pattaya.

Witness told local media that a jet ski operator called for the woman and another jet ski driver to head back to the beach simultaneously. The two then collided head-on, flinging the woman off her jet ski and banging her head. 

2. 40 assets including illegal guns and ammunition in the possession of the Chinese owner of Club One Pattaya are set to be confiscated, according to Pattaya police.

The Chinese suspect dubbed “Ku Aew” was arrested in November after a police probe found that he had been using another man’s Thai ID to camouflage his real nationality to operate an entertainment venue in Thailand.

3. The Royal Thai Immigration has been currently conducting an overstaying crackdown across Thailand dubbed Operation X-ray in some areas and Pattaya is not exempt.

The campaign is officially running from December 1st to December 10th and is aimed at ensuring safety for the upcoming Christmas and New Year’s holidays.

4. A young female artist from Cambodia pled with a Thai lawyer to help her, alleging she was brutally attacked by a gang of Polish men in Pattaya. The suspects reportedly fled Thailand, according to Banglamung police.

Banglamung police are hunting for two Polish suspects who allegedly brutally tortured a Cambodian female artist with a hammer and acid in Pattaya.

5. Pattaya police with assistance from Royal Thai Immigration busted what they called an online pornography ring for Chinese nationals live streaming from a Pattaya condo on December 11th, 2022.

The suspects stated they were hired by a Chinese entrepreneur who paid them 1,500 baht per clip produced. The suspects stated they made about five clips a day.

That’s it for this week. We hope the next week will bring you good news!
