Pattaya Police Chief reassigned for 30 days following Red Shirt attack on Prime Ministers Car in South Pattaya


Tuesday was a day that Pattaya Police would like to forget after the City became a sea of red following a Cabinet Meeting at the Royal Cliff Beach Resort. The Prime Minister, who was in attendance, left Pattaya on Tuesday Afternoon and used an unmarked regular car in an attempt to avoid the red shirted anti-government protesters, however they were not fooled and close to the junction of Pattaya Third Road with the South Pattaya Road, the car carrying the Prime Minister collided with a motorbike, forcing it to stop. The car was then attacked and the rear window of the Silver Nissan Pardo was smashed. Eventually the Prime Minister managed to escape and it was left to Pattaya Police to pick-up the pieces and search for the persons responsible for the attack. They determined that the bike involved in the crash was owned by Khun Wanchalerm aged 22 and video evidence and witness statements suggested he intentionally placed the bike in the path of the car carrying the Prime Minister. He made his way to Pattaya Police Station where he registered himself as the owner of the bike and he also signed papers relating to the incident without accepting responsibility for the attack on the Prime Ministers car. However the red shirts were angry and sent around 800 supporters to the station to demand his immediate release claiming he was a scapegoat and arrested only because of pressure on the Police from the Prime Ministers Officer who demanded an arrest within 48 hours of the incident. Dramatic scenes at the Police Station saw the red shirts storm the second floor where the suspect was being held in the cells. Police decided to release the man on Police Bail to avoid a riot at the Police Station. The case will now go to court. We can confirm that Police Colonel Sarayut, the Chief of Pattaya Police has been reassigned for a period of 30 days because of the incident and the temporary Chief of Pattaya Police will be Police Colonel Tirapong, who is currently the Deputy Commander of Chonburi Provincial Police. Further action against Senior Police Officers is expected to take place in the coming days.

does this mean that thailand may be heading towards civil "war"/"disobedience"?

PAD have demonstrations eventually closing the airport. they are happy in the end, that they get to change the government.

I just hope I wont have to force-land the plane on any protesters in August. But really, I just hope that they stay away from the tourism industry. Another blockade at the airport could be fatal to the already declining tourism revenue.


Saw the headlines yesterday. :10of10Score:

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
