A bus failed to stop at a zebra crossing in Samut Prakan’s Bag Plee district, hitting and killing a Myanmar man on Thursday night, police said.

Police said the 9pm accident occurred on the King Kaew Klong Khud road in front of the Bang Plee Niwet housing estate in Tambon Bang Plee.

The victim was identified as Poi Wai Aung 26. His body was dragged along the road hit before the bus stopped.

The employee transport was driven by Supoj Promnil, 62, who is facing a charge of reckless driving causing death.

Supoj said he saw the man crossing the road at the zebra crossing and so slowed the bus in anticipation that the man would get across before his bus arrived at the crossing.

But Supoj said the man hesitated and paused and then ran to cut in front of the bus and he was unable to stop in time. He braked and swerved the bus into the barrier of the road island, but still hit the man, the driver told police.

The Energy Policy and Planning Office (EPPO) of the Ministry of Energy has conducted a poll via its facebook page “@StartHaiUpTH” under the topic of ‘What innovations do you use the most’.

The poll, launched last July, explored the usage of innovations among Thais across all ages and professions, aiming to promote usage of energy-efficient innovations.

It was divided into four categories: The frequently used (over 40 per cent of total innovation usage); the moderately used (21-40 per cent); the rarely used (10-20 per cent); and the hardly-used (lower than 9 per cent).

Out of the 382 respondents, 68.3 per cent said online shopping application was their most frequently used innovation, followed by food delivery (46.3 per cent).

In the moderately used category, 37.2 per cent of respondents cited taxi-calling, 24.1 per cent VDO conference service, followed by energy-efficient appliances (21.7 per cent).

Meanwhile, 17.5 per cent of respondents said they rarely used any innovation that supports working at home, while 11.3 and 10.2 per cent cited EV vehicles and smart home devices as rarely used innovations.

Lastly, 3.9 per cent of respondents listed bike sharing application as hardly-used.

Cabinet earmarks Bt286m to help tapioca farmers hit by mosaic disease

At a meeting with the Tapioca Policy and Administration Committee (TPAC) on Thursday (September 19), Commerce Minister Jurin Laksanawisit said the Cabinet has approved measures to help tapioca farmers whose crops have been hit by the cassava mosaic disease (CMD).

“There is now an epidemic in 11 provinces, and the Cabinet has approved Bt286 million for control and prevention of the disease and also as subsidy for affected farmers,” he said.

Jurin added that affected tapioca farmers will be eligible for a Bt3,000 subsidy per rai based on the following conditions:

– Farmers should have registered as tapioca growers with TPAC between April 1 and September 30; and

– Farmers must notify the TPAC of their farms being affected by the disease by June 30 next year.

The Agriculture and Cooperatives Ministry has estimated that 45,400 rai of tapioca farms in Thailand have been affected by CMD, while over 4,500 farmers are awaiting government aid since the disease broke out earlier this year.

Jurin has also tasked the Department of Agricultural Extension to draw up a plan to prevent the disease as well as find a way to properly eliminate infected plants.

The cassava mosaic disease wipes out entire harvests and so far, no remedy has been found other than eliminating the tobacco whitefly, which carries the disease, and eliminating the infected plants.

Interpol issues red alert for absconding Norwegian wanted for manslaughter

Following a request from Thai police, Interpol has issued a Red Notice for fugitive Norwegian Roger Bullman who faces prosecution for the alleged killing of British national Amitpal Singh Bajaj.

The Phuket Provincial Court issued an arrest warrant for the 54-year-old Bullman, who was charged with manslaughter, after he jumped bail. He faces an additional charge of trespassing to cause harm at night.

The fatal incident took place in a hotel on Karon Beach, in Phuket province, where Bajaj, 34, was staying to mark his 10th wedding anniversary with his wife, a Singaporean national, and their child.

Initial police reports said the two got into a violent altercation at the Centara Grand Resort, where they were staying in adjacent rooms, over the Norwegian making too much noise late into the night.

However, in an interview with the UK’s MailOnline, Bajaj’s wife, Bandhna, rejected reports based on police questioning of the Norwegian that her husband had protested about Bullman singing loudly on the balcony. According to her account to the MailOnline, Bullman had been noisy and angry that night and reportedly broke down a wooden partition between the two balconies, charged into their room and started attacking her husband.

Police said that in the course of the fight, Bullman, a bodyguard from Oslo and also a martial arts expert, allegedly held Bajaj in a chokehold and continued to throw punches at him until Bajaj became unconscious. Bajaj was taken to a local hospital where he was declared dead.

Pol Captain Taecsin Deethong-on of Karon Police Station told The Nation on Thursday (September 19) that police had approached Interpol to issue the Red Notice two days ago. He said it was too early to determine whether Bullman had fled the country, adding that though police had heard reports of the suspect fleeing to Vietnam, a country he has reportedly travelled to in the past, these were yet to be confirmed.

Police have come under criticism from sources close to the victim’s family for releasing Bullman a few hours after the alleged crime on a bail guarantee of Bt200,000, despite the suspect being a flight risk.

Prasit Boondoungprasert, Charoen Pokphand Foods Pcl (CPF)’s Chief Executive Officer, has ruled out any impact on the company’s sales target from the outbreak of African swine fever (ASF), citing business diversification and the balanced proportion of meat products.

Meanwhile, CPF has witnessed an increase in chicken exports to China both in terms of sale volume and prices, he added.

CPF has invested in 16 countries with its business in Thailand generating only 28 per cent of total sale value. Chicken and pork available in the Thai market are of similar proportion, sitting above chicken eggs, ducks, sausages and ready-to-eat products. Pork prices have declined recently mainly due to seasonally weak demand and the dumping of pork supplies on concerns about ASF, but the current prices are still above production cost.

Meanwhile, chicken prices have been rising due to greater export demand, particularly from China. As the country experiences pork shortage with more consumers switching to chicken, prices are increasing.

The swine fever outbreak in China and Vietnam and the spread to a neighboring country has raised concerns about its possible arrival in Thailand.

All producers in Thailand have imposed strict bio-security systems, Prasit assured, adding that CPF itself has continuously exercised security measures and cooperated with the Department of Livestock Development in alerting farmers of security measures for efficient prevention of diseases.

Deputy Prime Minister Somkid Jatusripitak has urged all concerned parties to promote ease of doing business in Thailand in order to attract foreign investment.

Speaking at a meeting on Thursday hosted by the Finance Ministry and co-chaired by Finance Minister Uttama Savanayana to discuss the World Bank’s Doing Business 2020 Report on Thailand, Somkid said: “For example, we could streamline the process of applying for use of electricity and reduce the waiting time down to one day. Also, we could move power lines underground to improve the efficiency of our power grid.”

The deputy PM also suggested that public and private organisations use Big Data to improve online services such as corporate tax refund, online business registration, social security registration and Customs procedures via the national single window.

“The government is aiming to shorten the corporate tax refund waiting time to less than 90 days,” he said. “As for social security service, we have already tasked employers to submit employee data electronically to speed up the process and reduce paperwork. Currently 75.77 per cent of insured persons’ data are stored and processed online.”

Hat Yai district in Songkhla is among the worst hit by the smog smothering many areas

The business district of Hat Yai in the southern province of Songkhla is among the worst hit by the smog smothering many areas in the region, with PM2.5 particles (dust particles smaller than 2.5 microns) exceeding the safety standards.

Two other areas facing similarly severe pollution were Yala and Satun provinces, Tananchai Wansuk, the chief of the area’s environment office, said on Thursday.

The PM2.5 level in Hat Yai is 77 micrograms per cubic metre in a 24-hour cycle, while the safety benchmark is at 50mcg. Tananchai did not refer to the figures in Yala and Satun.

The smog from the western Indonesian island of Sumatra is expected to cloud southern Thailand for the next three days, he added.

Visibility at Hat Yai airport has not been affected by the smog, airport director Krittiya Thongkon said. He said they were getting instant information on visibility conditions and no warning had been issued as yet by the area meteorological station.

Meanwhile, measures have been put in place to protect public health in southern Krabi province amid a seasonal recurrence of haze drifting from Indonesia, the chief of the provincial health office said on Thursday (September 19).

Dr Aphichai Limanont said hospitals of all sizes had been instructed to disseminate information about coping with the smog, with those at most risk, such as children, the elderly and people with chronic respiratory problems, warned to be especially vigilant.

Aphichai acknowledged that Krabi had witnessed dense smog every year recently, but said the authorities had been able to cope.

The southern Thai provinces struggle perennially with the smoke from forest fires burning on Indonesia’s Sumatra Island and Kalimantan and it reappeared this week in Yala and Songkhla. Malaysia and Singapore have been suffering for several weeks.

Authorities in Yala are giving away free face masks even though the smog there is not very severe.
