Unseasonable Flooding Kills Dozens in Thailand; More Rain on Way



Thailand faces more hardship from unseasonable floods that have killed 40 people in its south, with more rain expected in the major rubber-producing and tourist region in coming days, a top disaster agency official said Sunday.

Persistent heavy rain well into what should be the dry season has triggered floods across the south, cutting road and rail links, threatening crops and affecting about 1.6 million people, said Chatchai Promlert, head of the Disaster Prevention and Mitigation Department.

“The worst isn’t over. We’re expecting more rain this week while clean-up efforts are underway in places where the waters have subsided,” Chatchai told Reuters.

The Meteorological Department said on its website more rain was expected Monday.

Not the rainy season

The rainy season in Thailand normally takes place from June to November.

The floods, which began January 1, have followed unseasonably heavy rain.

Thailand is one of the world’s most important producers of natural rubber and the national rubber authority said Thursday output in 2016-2017 would be about 10 percent lower because of the floods.

Global rubber prices have spiked on concern about the impact.

Flooding occurs in Thailand regularly during the rainy season but January is traditionally sunny and clear, and a high season for the tourist industry, including in southern seaside resorts.

Fingerprint ID mandatory to register SIMs

31 Jan 2017



Mobile virtual network operators (MVNOs) will have to use an online fingerprint ID system for new prepaid and postpaid mobile SIM card registrations by March without exception, says the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC).

An MVNO is a company that provides mobile service but does not have its own mobile network. MVNOs have called on the regulator over the past several months to exempt them from the rule, saying the system will impose additional cost burdens on them and make it difficult for them to compete with major mobile operators.

All mobile operators will have to introduce the online fingerprint ID system by March, but mobile users can choose whether or not to put their fingerprints in the system for their own security.

"Any violation will face penalties ranging from a fine, to a ban on receiving new mobile numbers from the regulator, to a licence revocation," said NBTC secretary-general Mr Takorn.

Mr Takorn urged all mobile users to participate in the fingerprint system to ensure greater security in mobile banking and prevent the risk of fraud, which is likely to increase in a cashless society.

He insisted that the fingerprint system will complement the existing registration system. The regulator will not force all mobile users to register with the new system.

Thailand has 103 million mobile subscribers, 14 million of whom use mobile banking services.

Mobile banking is a service provided by banks or other financial institutions as well as mobile operators that allows customers to conduct some financial transactions remotely using any mobile device, with no bank account required.

The popularity of mobile banking activities marks a significant trend taking place in banking.

Fraud and other criminal acts targeting telecommunication networks are also becoming increasingly sophisticated.

Japanese man flying Thai Smile says his money stolen from checked luggage

An elderly Japanese tourist filed a report with Suvarnabhumi Airport police yesterday, claiming his money was stolen from checked luggage on a flight from Chiang Mai to Bangkok.

Sato Shoji, 63, said his JPY100,000 cash (THB31,000) was stolen from his checked suitcase on Thai Smile flight WE161. His important documents were still intact, and only the money had disappeared.

Sato said he sought help from the Thai Smile staff, but they told him to go to the police himself and send them a complaint e-mail.

The tourist said he didn’t know how the Thai legal process works or how to get to the police station. He was deeply sorry that he was denied any help from the airline staff.

The money was intended to pay for his accommodation and food while traveling in Thailand.

Police will check CCTV and track down whether his money was stolen at Chiang Mai or Suvarnabhumi airport as the crime has caused a damage to the image of Thai tourism, The Nation reported.

Ho Chi Minh’s 127th birthday anniversary

One of the biggest Vietnamese communities in the country.


Nakhon Phanom celebrates Ho Chi Minh’s 127th birthday anniversary

One of the biggest Vietnamese communities in the country is in the Northeastern province of Nakhon Phanom.

The northeastern province of Nakhon Phanom held an event Friday to celebrate the 127th birthday anniversary of Vietnam’s former President Ho Chi Minh.



The celebration took place at Baan Na Chok Thailand-Vietnam Friendship Village in Mueang Nakhon Phanom district. 

Governor Somchai Witdamrong, Vietnam’s Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Vu Hong Nam, Vietnam’s Ambassador to Thailand and Vietnam’s Consul General jointly presided over the commemorative ceremony.

Born on 19th May 1890, Ho Chi Minh stayed in Baan Na Chok between 1923 and 1931 while planning the Vietnam liberation movement. 

To honor the independence leader, the Thai and Vietnamese governments have jointly erected a Thailand-Vietnam Friendship Village and the Ho Chi Minh Memorial Complex in the northeastern province.

The event was also organized to foster good relations between Thailand and Vietnam and promote tourism to Nakhon Phanom.

BANGKOK — A new set of laws to curb tobacco consumption went into effect Tuesday, toughening smoking regulations and raising fines for their infringement.

The Ministry of Public Health announced Monday the implementation of new laws designed to further restrict the purchase and consumption of tobacco, in a bid to reduce the number of smokers in the country.

“There are a lot of interesting regulations. Some are completely new and others are updates with higher fines,” Witune Chartngiew, lawyer at the Ministry of Health’s Bureau of Tobacco Control said Tuesday.

According to the 2017 Tobacco Product Control Act, it is now illegal to sell or give cigarettes to minors. The previous 1992 act only outlawed the sale of tobacco to those under 18. The 2,000 baht fine for smoking in non-smoking areas was increased to 5,000 baht, while the fine for keeping cigarettes in plain sight in stores was doubled from 20,000 to 40,000 baht. A new fine of 40,000 baht on the seller was also adopted for the sale of individual cigarettes. The list of public spaces in which it is forbidden to smoke was increased, most notably including temples and educational institutions.

The previous punishment for the unauthorized sale of tobacco to minors was a one-month jail term or a 2,000 baht fine, or both. Those who infringe the new law – both the seller and the customer – risk a maximum punishment of three months in jail or a 30,000 baht fine, or both.

While older tobacco laws only prohibited smoking in public places, workplaces and vehicles, the list of smoke-free zones was increased under the new law. Temples, places of worship, nursing areas, drugstores, educational institutions and amusement parks are additional non-smoking areas, said Witune.

Over 50,000 Thais die each year due to smoking-related causes, according to the Ministry of Public Health.
