BANGKOK/MUMBAI (Reuters) - Karl Slym, managing director of India's Tata Motors Ltd, died after falling from a hotel room in Bangkok in what police said on Monday could be possible suicide.

Slym, 51, had attended a board meeting of Tata's Thailand unit in the Thai capital and was staying with his wife in a room on the 22nd floor of the Shangri-La hotel. Hotel staff found his body on Sunday on the fourth floor, which juts out above lower floors.

"We didn't find any sign of a struggle," Police Lieutenant Somyot Boonyakaew, who is heading the investigation, told Reuters.

"We found a window open. The window was very small so it was not possible that he would have slipped. He would have had to climb through the window to fall out because he was a big man. From my initial investigation we believe he jumped."

The police found a three-page note, written in English, which they were translating into Thai. An autopsy on Slym's body should begin on Monday.

A spokeswoman for Tata Motors, India's biggest automaker, declined to comment on the possible cause of Slym's death. A company statement on Sunday said Slym had provided leadership in a challenging market environment.

TURNING THE CORNER

Slym, a British national, was hired in 2012 to revive Tata's flagging sales and market share in India. Tata Motors is part of the Tata conglomerate.

"His death comes at a time when the company seems to be close to turning the corner," said Anil Sharma, an analyst with researchers IHS Automotive. "It comes before his efforts bear fruit. We should be able to see the results in a year or two."

Tata Motors recently introduced a new petrol engine for its passenger vehicles and was planning to launch a hatchback and compact sedan this year, the first all-new Tata-branded passenger vehicles since 2010.

Slym led the automaker's operations in India and international markets including South Korea, Thailand and South Africa, but he did not look after the Jaguar and Land Rover (JLR) luxury unit that Tata Motors acquired in 2008.

The Thai police said they were called to the Shangri-La hotel around 7:45 a.m. on Sunday after staff found Slym's body. They woke up Slym's wife, who looked shocked when she was told what had happened to her husband.

Tata Motors had lost traction in the Indian passenger vehicle market as domestic and foreign rivals rolled out new models while it mostly tweaked existing models and offered heavy price discounts.

The firm has not had a hit car at home since 1998. Sales of the Nano, the world's cheapest car which it unveiled in 2008, have been lacklustre.

Before joining Tatar Motors, Slym was executive vice president of SGMW Motors, China, a General Motors joint venture. Before that he had headed General Motors in India.

KING'S VISIT

King visits dog shelter in Hua Hin



HUA HIN: -- His Majesty the King on Thursday (Feb 13) visited Hua Hin Dog Shelter in Hua Hin District, Prachuap Khiri Khan Province, to follow up the progress of the center’s work in assisting abandoned dogs and providing a full-cycle management of the stray dog problem in Hua Hin.

Hua Hin Dog Shelter was initiated by the King in 2003 when he took up residence at Klai Kangwon Palace and noticed the problem of stray dogs in Hua Hin area.

The King later provided a fund raised from sales of T-shirts bearing the photo of His Majesty’s favorite dog “Khun Thongdaeng”, for the building of the dog shelter on a 20-rai plot of land allocated by Wat Khao Itikukhato.

Apart from financial support for the construction of the center, His Majesty also granted a sum of money to establish a foundation to run Hua Hin Dog Shelter.

His Majesty has constantly contributed to the fund with the latest portion made on February 7, this year.

The center currently has well-trained veterinarians offering various medical services such as vaccination, neutering of female dogs and treatment for the injured.

It has records on the history and developments of all dogs under its care for efficient control and treatment.

During the visit, the King toured inside the center, observing its activities such as physical rehabilitation to treat canine Osteoarthritis through exercise and water therapy.

The center currently has the capacity to take care of 812 dogs and has selected 47 healthy puppies and fully grown dogs with good behavior for prospective owners to bring them home.

He also fed food to dogs and observed the vehicle to receive dog’s blood, belonging to the Veterinary Hospital of Kasetsart University Hua Hin Campus.

The hospital expects to receive 400 bags of blood donations for use in one year.

His Majesty then visited the statue of Khun Thongdaeng and anointed the plate of history of his favorite pet dog.

Thongdaeng was born in November 1998 to a stray mother in a street near the royal medical development center in วังทองหลาง district, Bangkok.

His Majesty has praised Thongdaeng as a humble and grateful dog which always shows respect to its owner.

The King also observed other activities outside the Shelter’s building such as biogas production from dog excrement and shops selling dog-related souvenirs and products for pet animals.

Proceeds from the sales go to support the center, in addition to public donations and the municipality’s budget.

Thailand’s baht headed for its biggest two-day loss in almost six months after clashes between anti-government protesters and police in Bangkok killed four people and wounded at least 66.

Protesters fired guns and threw a grenade at police, injuring 33 officers seeking to clear demonstrators from an area in the historic district of the capital yesterday, said Songpol Watanachai, deputy chief of the Metropolitan Police. Thailand’s economy grew 0.6 percent last quarter from a year earlier, the slowest pace in almost two years, data showed Feb. 17.

The baht weakened 0.5 percent to 32.63 per dollar as of 8:38 a.m. local time, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. That took its two-day loss to 1.1 percent, the most since Aug. 22. The currency has depreciated 4.6 percent since the end of October, when the protests began.

“The baht is looking increasingly vulnerable,” said Nicholas Spiro, London-based managing director at Spiro Sovereign Strategy. “It’s the bleak prospects for the already weak domestic economy, as the political standoff shows no signs whatsoever of being resolved in a peaceful manner.”

One-month implied volatility, a measure of expected moves in the exchange rate used to price options, decreased seven basis points, or 0.07 percentage point, to 6.34 percent.
Rice Program

Yesterday’s clash was the deadliest since five people died in political violence on Nov. 30, according to the Bangkok Emergency Medical Center’s website. Other protest sites at key intersections in downtown Bangkok were unaffected. Tharit Pengdit, the director-general of the Department of Special Investigation, said 144 protesters were arrested.

The demonstrators led by former opposition party powerbroker Suthep Thaugsuban have refused to negotiate with the government, saying the protest won’t end until an unelected council is put in place to reform what they say is a corrupt political system. Thailand’s anti-corruption agency said yesterday it had enough evidence to charge Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra with negligence over a rice-buying program

HIGH SPEED TRAIN

High Speed Train Proposal Prepared



Hua Hin:-- The Office of Transport and Traffic Policy and Planning has prepared four high speed train projects to be proposed to the next government.

The office’s Director Chula Sukhamanop stated that the four projects include the construction of high speed train routes linking Bangkok to four prominent provinces in different regions which include Chiang Mai, Nong Khai, Hua Hin and Rayong.

Mr. Chula said that the plan had been established since the inception of the government's 2.2 Trillion baht loan bill, adding that, despite the mega projects being on hold at the moment, his office had decided to keep the prospect opened.

Mr. Chula reported on the latest developments concerning the Bangkok-Chiang Mai high speed train route, saying that the route had been divided into two parts: Bangkok - Phitsanulok and Phitsanulok-Chiang Mai.

He said that the office had completed public opinion polls and is orchestrating the Environmental Impact Assessment for the first stage.

Mr. Chula said public feedback surveys are currently being conducted for the latter section.

The pre-construction surveys and studies for the Phitsanulok-Chiang Mai route are expected to be completed this year.

Director Chula said his office would gradually complete the necessary studies for the projects, adding that once a new Transport Minister is installed the project would be ready for proposal and implementation.

   (10 March) A 16-years old schoolboy has allegedly murdered his parents as they slept in their bedroom before turning the gun on himself.

The police in Pathum Thani received reports of the murder at around 16.00 on Sunday. The officers later arrived at the crime scene at a house in Mela Ville gated community in Thanburi district.

At the scene, the police found the bodies of Mr. Panuwat Sornphrom, 44, and his wife, Ms. Yaowalak Sornphrom, 41. They were both found dead with gunshot wounds on their bed in the residence's bedroom.

The police also found the body of their 16-years old son, whose name has been withheld due to legal reasons, inside the house. The boy died from a gunshot wound on his right temple, and a Glock handgun was found in his hand. Police said three bullets have been fired.

He is said to be a Matthayom 5 student at an unidentified school.

Mr. Akkarawat Sornphrom, another 18-years old son of Mr. Panuwat and Ms. Yaowalak, said he was inside his room in the house on the night of 8 March when he heard several gunshots. However, Mr. Akkarawat said he thought the shots were fired from outside the residence, so he thought nothing of the sounds and slept until he rose up and drove to his school in the morning.

According to Mr. Akkarawat, he called his home in the afternoon but no one answered the phone, leading him to suspect that something must have gone wrong. He said he immediately drove home to find the bedroom of his parents locked, and no reply came when he called their names, so he asked for help from neighbours who helped break into the bedroom.

Mr. Akkarawat told police he believed his brother shot Mr. Panuwat and Ms. Yaowalak dead because he felt jealousy toward his brother.

He added that his parents had his brother's mobile phone confiscated recently due to poor grades in school. According to Mr. Akkarawat, his parents also often scolded his brother for "acting like ladyboy".

The gun used in the crimes is said to belong to Mr. Panuwat.

The police said Mr. Panuwat was a senior official in the Department of Forestry while Ms. Yaowalak owned a company which exports textile products.

The three bodies have been sent to a hospital for autopsy procedures, the police said, adding that officers would talk to friends and teachers of the deceased schoolboy to establish the motive behind the murders.

 Five perons were killed and four others injured in a car and truck crash with a female elephant and two calves on the road from Ban Bung to Klaeng district of Rayong this morning.

The accident happened on Highway 344 from Ban Bung to Klaeng at about 5.20 a.m. today.

The van then ploughed into the roadside ditch. Three persons in the van were killed and two others injured.
The female elephant was seriously injured with broken legs.
As police and passers-by parked their cars by the road side to help, an unaware truck came in speed and rammed at the rear of a car parked to see the incident. In the related crash, one was killed.

Forestry officials were sending a truck to take the badly injured male elephant for treatment.

Hospital in Rayong said late this morning five persons died from the crash, and five injured.

 The Department of Consular Affairs assures today that Thai passport production meets international standards and is highly difficult to forge.

Assurance from the department came as there was report in some foreign news media of a foreign passport forging racket in Thailand which might have connection with the missing of the Malaysian Airlines’ Flight MH 370 last week.

Posting on the department’s Facebook page, it tells the people to have confidence in the security standards involving the issuance of Thai passports which meets the requirements of the International Civil Aviation Organization.

The department said that so far more than 10 million Thai passports have been issued since it began E-passport production in 2005. No information of forged Thai passports being detected so far, it said.

It went on saying that reports of forged foreign passports being found in Thailand, in fact were not forged Thai passports.

It said Thai passport has high security features and well-hidden making it  highly difficult to forge. Besides the passport itself also cont

NEW GENERAL ELECTIONS?

Election Commission ready for new general election

BANGKOK, Mar 22 – The Election Commission (EC) will either discuss with the caretaker government to hold a general election in 60 days or invite political parties to reach an agreement on the new balloting date after the Constitutional Court decided yesterday to annul the Feb 2 poll, according to an election commissioner.

Somchai Srisuthiyakorn said on his Facebook page yesterday that the EC would wait for an official document on the Constitutional Court’s verdict before holding a meeting among election commissioners on preparations for the next general election.

There are two alternatives in holding the next general election – the caretaker government issues a royal decree for a general election within 60 days, or the EC discusses with political parties on the suitable election date which may take longer than 60 days, he said.

He said the caretaker government will have to shoulder Bt3.8 billion for the election since it was warned against holding the balloting on Feb 2 but insisted on going ahead with it.

He was optimistic that anti-government groups’ disruption against the next election could be avoided after political parties join the pre-election talks.

Puchong Nutrawong, EC secretary general, yesterday officially informed EC members on the Constitution Court’s verdict to nullify the Feb 2 general election.

In an interesting new trend in Thailand, young men are choosing to dress themselves as Mexican gangsters. Their clothes (or lack thereof), hairstyles, and tattoos are all inspired by criminal gangs in Mexico and the US. They have even formed their own gangs – Balcony Pain, Fratez, and D Sixty, to name a few. But of course, copying dressing style won’t really make criminals out of decent men. None of these young copycats actually appreciate the brutal violence associated with real-life Latino gangs, they are just really big fans of the gangs’ fashion style and brotherhood mentality.

More than anything else, these men appreciate the ‘clean and simple’ gangster aesthetic because it suits the Thai weather very well. You’d actually be surprised to know that most of them hold nine to five jobs as teachers, policemen and bureaucrats. Some are family men who ask their wives’ permission before getting inked. Needless to say, they don’t fight, shoot each other or deal in drugs.

“I am Ter D Sixty. During the day, I work in an office,” said one gang member. “At night, I’m a Mexican gangster. I’m a gangster at heart.”

“I am Yak Yai Fratez,” said another. “During the day, I’m a policeman. At night, I’m a gangster. Fratez Thailand gangster, you know?”

Several other men share similar stories – ordinary people by day, gangsters by night. D Sixty, in particular, is a 27-member gang from the Din Daeng district. They’ve been a gang for nine months now – it all began with three leaders who dressed like gangsters. The ‘younger dudes’ in the area were inspired, and soon joined the gang as well. “The reason we adopted the D is because our gang is restricted to Din Daeng locals only,” said Eak D Sixty, one of the leaders. “Outsiders cannot join us no matter how cool they are.”rge brotherhood of style-conscious men who bond well over their passion for gangster lifestyle and clothes

When asked about how he got into the whole ‘Mexican gangster style’ dressing, Eak said: “I listened to hip hop and watched videos on YouTube. Also, my aunt who used to live abroad told me about it.” He also mentioned that Mexican style reflects his life very well. “I think I’m going to dress like this until I die,” he declared. Being part of the gang isn’t just about dressing though, he said that he found true friendship with his fellow gangsters. “Since we’re in the same ‘gang’ everyone loves one another. Before we never knew each other and were even enemies, but now we can hang together.”

Shiro Local, a member of the Balcony Pain gang, is a teacher of oriental medicine at Rangsit University. “Eight years ago, I started listening to rap music,” he said. “And I started seeing people dressing in Mexican style. I thought it was simple and fit the weather here. The style is somehow empowering. That’s why I like it.” Shiro said he met his gang through Facebook; they invited him to make music with them. One thing led to another and soon he was a member of Balcony Pain. The main message of his music is to let people know that they are being taken advantage of by corrupt officers.

Since Mexican culture isn’t very common in Thailand, most people don’t really get what these men are up to, but their families don’t seem to have any objection. The gangs aren’t exactly forbidden because they never really do anything bad. They’re just a group of people with similar interests. They hang out, get drunk, but they make sure never to cause any trouble to the public. See, now why can’t all gangsters be sweet like that?

WORLD WAR II BOMBS UNEXPLODED

Unexploded World War Two bombs pose high risk for Bangkok residents





BANGKOK: -- The deadly explosion of an old 70-years-old 500-pound bomb recovered from a construction site and sold as a scrap has now raised safety concern of residents living in five areas of Bangkok which were bombing targets of the Allied Forces during World War II.

The Bangkok Metropolitan Authority (BMA) is now asking help from the Royal Thai Air Force to “X-ray” five potential risk areas within the capital as many old bombs might still be buried underground and left intact.

The five areas pinpointed by the BMA that might have unexploded ordnance (UXO) are vicinities of the Bang Sue train station, Siriraj Hospital, Bangkok Noi train station, the Memorial bridge and the Rama VI bridge.

According to BMA and the military, these areas were key locations during the Second World War era and authorities suspect that a large number of undiscovered UXOs may be buried here.

Local district offices have launched an official warning to residents living in these areas to be wary of odd objects, especially within open areas that have not been surveyed for construction.

Anyone that knows of or have discovered odd objects are to report their finding to the authorities immediately.

Meanwhile BMA and rescue workers are still combing the explosion site at Soi 72 intersection 14 on Lad Pla Khao Road looking for possible more human remains under piles of debris.

The incident which occurred on Wednesday, 2 April, has left the front of the scrap shop in ruins.

Until Friday, among the debris are the disturbing sight of human remains scattered on tree tops and electrical poles.

The odor within the entire is retched and small flames still suddenly erupt from the ruins.

As of Friday, a total of over 150 people have reported their damages to the local precinct with the hope of obtaining some compensation for their losses from the BMA.

A team of medical personnel including psychologists have also been dispatched to the area to offer assistance to those in need.

Meanwhile the BMA also is working to control the number of scrap shops as many of them have no operating license, including the scrap shop which was flattened by explosion Wednesday also operates without license.

According to the Pollution Control Department, there are about 10,200 legal scrap shops nationwide with Bangkok alone having more than 3,000.

It said that of the 3,000 scrap shops in Bangkok and its adjacent provinces, only 800 operating with official licenses while the rest are operating illegally.

The business license is normally issued by a district administrative office.

Without a license, one cannot run the business.

But in reality many operators, however, choose to violate the regulation and operate the business without a license due to high profit they can make and the light penalty.

According to the law, a person violating scrap shop regulations is subject to a six-month imprisonment and a maximum of 10,000 baht fine, or both. The suspect also has a chance to fight a case in the court.

One reason that scrap shop could hardly be resolved was local authorities do not have direct authority to tackle the problem because regulations are imposed by the Interior and Public Health Ministries.

To solve the problem, a law must be enacted to give local authorities direct power to take legal actions against violators.

A senior Bangkok Metropolitan Administration official said scrap shop regulations are so complex because the matter dealt with two ministries.

The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration plans to work out a joint solution with the two ministries.

As for now, it has ordered its officials to inspect all illegal scrap shops and provide knowledge for people about hazardous objects, which have been recently discovered in the capital.
