Motocycle, auto production down amid trade tensions and slow economy

Surapong Paisit-Pattanapong, vice chairman of the Federation of Thai Industries (FTI) and spokesman for the FTI’s Auto Industry Group, revealed on Thursday (November 21) that the FTI has adjusted the estimate for motorcycle manufacturing in 2019 downwards by 40,000 units to 2.1 million units, though this is still 1.79-per-cent higher than last year’s estimate.

Surapong further explained that this adjustment follows the FTI’s earlier adjustment of the estimate of motorcycle manufacturing for export by 10,000 units to 350,000 units, a decrease of 5.71 per cent from last year and that for manufacturing for domestic sales by 30,000 units to 1.75 million units, which is still 3.43 per cent higher than last year.

As for car manufacturing, FTI estimates that this year the domestic and export manufacturing will stand at 1 million units each. “Statistics from the past 10 months [January-October 2019] indicate that we have produced 1,725,414 cars, which is 4.21 per cent lower than in the same period of last year,” he said. “Manufacturing for export stands at 898,588 units, a 6.55 per cent decrease over 2018, with estimated export value of Bt469 million, a 6.08 per cent decrease from last year.”

“Meanwhile, manufacturing for domestic sales is at 826,826 units, a 1.53 per cent decrease from last year,” he said. “Total domestic sales stand at 838,968 units, a 0.7 per cent increase from last year. This minimal growth is due to stricter criteria imposed on auto leasing providers and the flooding in many parts of Thailand earlier this year that caused the auto market to slow.”

In October 2019, Thailand’s auto manufacturing stood at 152,787 units, a 22.52 per cent decrease over the same period last year. “Last month’s huge drops came from decreasing export, as trade partners are suffering from an economic slowdown as a result of US-China trade war,” Surapong added.

Fahsai to wow Miss Universe fans with Ghost Festival costume

Miss Universe Thailand Paweensuda “Fahsai” Drouin on Wednesday (November 20) modelled the elaborate and brashly colourful national costume she’ll wear during the international pageant finals on December 8 in Atlanta, Georgia.

Designer Alongkorn Kongin has attempted to capture the eye-popping spectacle of the Phi Ta Khon Festival – the annual Ghost Festival – in a form-fitting short dress of copper-clad aluminium wire arranged in a distinctly Thai art pattern.

That’s topped with a 70-centimetre hat made of the same material.

Much of the colour of the ensemble comes from a huge phi ta khon mask that Paweensuda will carry, made of used plastic bags and other recycled material collected by her fans.

The mask, Alongkorn said, presents liveliness and fun, while the short dress reflecting the light bears an undeniable grace.

Paweensuda said she is delighted to promote the Phi Ta Khon Festival held each summer in Loei’s Dan Sai district, which she visited to discover the origins and meaning of the celebration.

Paweensuda will fly to the United States on November 22, ready for the Miss Universe pageant being televised on December 8 from Atlanta’s Tyler Perry Studios.

Thanathorn, disputing verdict, says party will carry on

Disputing the Constitutional Court’s verdict against him on Wednesday (November 20), Thanathorn Juangroongruangkit, leader of the Future Forward Party, vowed to continue in his political career.

“The court attached more weight to assumptions rather than to facts or evidence,” he told reporters after the court session. “It’s my observation that there was no resolution in the form of a judicial body’s decision, unlike other courts’ verdicts.

“Moreover, the court mentioned Article 98 (3) of the Constitution, which prohibits politicians from holding shares in media companies that can influence public opinion. It did not say whether that article actually applied to V Luck Media and I,” he said, referring to his family-owned media business.

Thanathorn said his party would carry on regardless of his status as an MP, which he called irrelevant in deliberations over whether the party should be dissolved.

“FWP is a forever journey and I am still the party’s leader,” he said.

The court ruled 7-2 that Thanathorn had failed to prove he’d signed over his shares in V Luck before he registered to run in the March election, contrary to the law.

The court affirmed that he can no longer serve as an MP but it did not sentence him to jail for election fraud, as his supporters feared.

Manop Keereepuwadol, the 53rd-named contender in Future Forward’s party-list quota, will assume Thanathorn’s seat in Parliament.

Party spokesperson Pannika Wanich declared on Twitter, “Although MP status has been ended, Thanathorn is still the team leader … Future Forward Party is preparing for censure debate on Prayut’s government in mid-December. Those who have evidence of government corruption and abuse of power can send it to whistle@futureforwardparty.org.”

Numerous people were at the court to offer Thanathorn moral support and foreign diplomats attended the session to hear the verdict.

Observers have said the verdict could lead to Future Forward’s early demise, noting that other charges against him are still waiting to be tried in court.

It’s also been claimed that 64 other members of Parliament held media-company shares when they registered for the election. Election Commission decisions in those cases are awaited.

A man has been arrested in Sa Kaeo allegedly in possession of 36 bags of tortoises, seven bags of softshell turtles and 180 boxes containing snakes and monitor lizards loaded onto a pickup truck and waiting to be sold to Cambodian traders

Sivanat said the protected animals had been driven from Chachoengsao to Sa Kaeo’s Aranyaprathet district, which abuts the Cambodian border.

Police claim Phisanupong confessed to being hired by a man identified only as Chai to ferry animals four times previously from Bang Khla district in Chachoengsao to Aranyaprathet, paying him Bt7,000 each time.

Supreme Court upholds Spaniard’s conviction in Bangkok condo murder

The Supreme Court on Wednesday (November 20) upheld the conviction of Spaniard Artur Segarra Princep in the 2016 murder of a compatriot in Bangkok.

Segarra’s lawyer said his client would apply for a royal pardon and meanwhile would appeal to the courts to have him extradited to Spain to serve time in prison there. (Spain abolished capital punishment in 1995.)

Several journalists from Spain were seeking an opportunity to speak to Segarra, 40, after the hearing.

The Criminal Court in Bangkok on May 3, 2016, sentenced him to death for premeditated murder. He was also convicted of concealment of a body, illegal confinement and theft.

Parts of a human body recovered from the Chao Phraya River near a dockyard in Bang Phlat district on January 30, 2016, proved to be those of Spanish millionaire David Bernat, a business acquaintance of Segarra.

 

Segarra was arrested in Cambodia soon after and extradited to Thailand.

Prosecutors had no eyewitnesses to any of the crimes for which Segarra was accused, but won their case on the basis of circumstantial evidence, such as security camera recordings and testimony from a cleaner at a condo where the murder took place and the Thai girlfriend of the accused, together with blood on an electric grinder and in a freezer that matched the victim’s DNA.

Prosecutors said Segarra took Bernat to a room at the PG Condominium Rama IX in Huay Kwang district, murdered him, dismembered the body and dropped the pieces into the river at different locations.

The Court of Appeals upheld Segarra’s conviction and death sentence and ordered him to pay relatives the deceased Bt734,940 in compensation.

The Constitutional Court ruled on Wednesday (November 20) that Thanathorn Juangroongruangkit, leader of the Future Forward Party, lost his status as a member of Parliament on May 23, having registered to run in the March election while still holding shares in V Luck Media, in violation of the law.

The court cited Articles 98 and 42 of the 2017 Constitution and the Organic Act on Election to the House of Representatives in characterising Thanathorn as prohibited from being elected as an MP.

The Election Commission brought the matter to court, accusing him of still holding 675,000 shares in his family-owned media company when he registered his candidacy in the general election.

Thanathorn failed to prove that he had transferred all shares to his mother, Somporn Juangroongruangkit, before registering.

The Mass Rapid Transit Authority of Thailand (MRT), complying with government policy to ease the cost of living, will lower fares on its Purple Line as well as the cost of 30-day advanced tickets starting on December 25.

MRT chairperson Sarawut Songsivilai and MRT governor Pakapong Sirikantaramas announced the decision on Wednesday (November 20).

“Single journeys on the Purple Line will cost less in off-peak periods – weekends, public holidays and 9am to 5pm on workdays,” Sarawut said. “The current fare rate will drop from Bt14-Bt42 to Bt14-Bt20. The initial Bt14 represents the entrance fee, which will increase to Bt17 at the first station and Bt20 for the rest.”

Fares will be halved for children up to 14 years old and 100 centimetres in height and for citizens who are 60 or over. Students 14 to 22 years old will enjoy a 10-per-cent discount.

Also benefiting will be passengers with multi-use fare cards for the Purple and Blue Lines, including the MRT card, MRT Plus, business traveller card and co-business card. They can ask MRT staff to top them up at a discount.

“The prices will be Bt780 for 15 journeys, Bt1,250 for 25, Bt1,920 for 40 and Bt2,350 for 50,” Sarawut said.

“To take advantage of this, you have to make your first journey within 45 days of topping up and all the rest within 30 days of that.”
