Legal/Investigative Reporting Requests

-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=—=-=-=-

We often get requests for investigative-style reporting in which one party is having a dispute with a second party such as a private individual, landlord, or business and wishes us to get involved and write an article about it.

As an overall editorial policy, we don’t do investigative/expose reporting.

For a variety of reasons, especially strict Thai laws on slander and libel, we cannot publish dispute-style news without proper police reports and court paperwork from both parties involved, and the consent of both parties, that accompany the issue. We are not investigative-style reporters for the prior reasons as well. However, we are happy to suggest a lawyer to help.

We can recommend to you a quality lawyer that we suggest who is local in the Pattaya area for Pattaya residents and disputes. If you would like this information please visit this page:

Press Release Requests

-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=—=-=-=-=

If you have a press release for us about your business, charity, or event that is related to Thailand we are happy to consider it for publishing for you if we feel it is relevant to our audience. Simply send us an e-mail to Pattayanewseditor@gmail.com and title the request Press Release, followed by the name of your release. We will usually have a reply to you within 24 hours, however, we CANNOT guarantee a reply to every press release and cannot guarantee that every submission will be published.

You can see our press release page by clicking on this text here.

Please note, we generally don’t accept “gofundme” style press releases for private individuals or causes due to potential legal issues. A charity article publishing request should have proper paperwork and documentation proving the charity is licensed and legal in Thailand. If you want your business advertised on our website and social media channels, please see our advertisement page here:

Correction/Removal Requests

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-====-=-=-=-==-=–=-=

For requests for removals or corrections regarding articles please e-mail us at pattayanewseditor@gmail.com. Our correction policy can be found here: https://thepattayanews.com/corrections-policy/. We, in general, do not remove articles, however, if there is a potential legal or pressing issue please reach out to our partner lawyer at the link above. If it is a special personal request or matter, we will take it under consideration at our primary e-mail above. A request is not a guarantee of an article being altered or removed if the information was deemed correct. All suspects in crime-related articles are considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law and statements made in these articles are alleged or accused by law enforcement or named relevant parties, not a statement of fact, allegations, or accusation by The Pattaya News Co. Ltd. Disputes with statements made by those agencies, especially law enforcement related, should be taken to those relevant agencies and not The Pattaya News Co. Ltd.
