CAR ACCIDENT

13 die in Chaiyaphum at 7am as driver falls asleep at the wheel

TWELVE VIETNAMESE students and a Thai van driver died after their chartered vehicle collided head-on with an 18-wheel truck in Chaiyaphum’s Kaeng Khro district yesterday morning. The van burst into flames after the smash.

Three other students travelling in the van were seriously injured while the truck driver, Prayuth Leesui, 35, was also injured. They were taken to Kaeng Khro Hospital.

The van was part of a five-vehicle caravan that departed Bangkok on Sunday night for a seminar and youth camp at a church in Nong Bua Lamphu’s Muang district, Kaeng Khro Police chief Colonel Panas Boonyanyao said.

The four other vans had already past Chaiyaphum province when the last one, driven by Weerachai Phromsakul, 36, collided with the truck, he said.

Police suspect that Weerachai fell asleep at the wheel at about 7am on road number 201 (Kaeng Khro-Phu Khieo).

The charred bodies of the students are being kept at the Sawang Phutthatham Sathan Foundation in Kaeng Khro, pending identification so authorities can contact their families.

But the other Vietnamese students and their teachers contacted police and asked them to move the bodies to Khon Kaen’s Srinakarin Hospital for DNA tests.

The Ban Kijjanukhroh Church’s three-day youth camp is an annual event for 120 Thai and Vietnamese students from Bangkok, Khon Kaen, Udon Thani and Sakhon Nakhon. This year’s event was cancelled following the tragedy.

In related news, a separate accident in Samut Prakan’s Bang Bo district yesterday afternoon saw a pickup overturn at a curve in tambon Bang Na-Trat, killing two Myanmar workers and injuring 15 others. The truck driver fled the scene.

An initial probe by police found that the truck with 24 Myanmar workers on board was speeding and the driver |lost control, slamming into an oncoming van.

FINE ARTS OFFICIALS yesterday urged some 100 community leaders and villagers in Phatthalung’s Khao Chai Son district to stop digging for gold and to cooperate by “returning” gold sheets they dug up – within the next two weeks – or face punishment.

Department inspector general Anan Chuchote said people who refused to do this could be punished by up to seven years in jail and/or hit with a fine of up to Bt700,000. He spoke at a meeting with local leaders at the Khao Chai Son Community Hall to discuss the retrieval of gold from villagers.

The move followed the recent discovery of big sheets of gold in a palm plantation, which triggered a gold rush despite a prospecting ban.

People who hand over gold sheets to the authorities within the next 15 days would not be punished.

In addition, he said the Nakhon Si Thammarat Fine Arts Office would assess an appropriate price and pay them a third of the “real” price, an amount that would still be higher than the market price.

Nakhon Si Thammarat Fine Arts Office director Anat Bumrungwong said an inspection by his officials was deterred by rainwater and muddy soil.

Gold sheets buried deep

He said villagers had told them the gold sheets were buried three metres under the ground.

The officials’ initial assessment was that the gold sheets and ancient artefacts may be from the Ayutthaya era or earlier. The area was suspected to be an old waterway that connected to Songkhla Lake, so it was believed a boat with valuable items may have sunk there.

Ban Thung Ore palm plantation owner Vee Thabsaeng presented a big gold sheet to the officials later yesterday so it could be studied and kept as a national treasure, and the department purchased the sheet from him at the promised price.

Anan said that a study of the gold sheet by department officials would be complete in seven days and hoped that may yield more clarity on its origin.

Pirates have released a Thai tanker that was bound for Indonesia after stealing its oil, in the latest attack in Southeast Asian waters, the International Maritime Bureau (IMB) said yesterday.

Royal Thai Navy spokesman Rear Admiral Karn Dee-ubol said Thai International Tanker Co had told the Navy its oil tanker, MT Orapin 4, was now back in Chon Buri province and the 14 crewmembers safe.

MT Orapin 4, with 14 crew aboard, arrived at Sri Racha Port on Sunday, the IMB’s Kuala Lumpur-based Piracy Reporting Centre said. The diesel oil tanker had lost contact with its owner after leaving Singapore on May 27 for Pontianak on Indonesia’s Kalimantan.

“Pirates hijacked and stole the tanker’s oil cargo and destroyed the communication equipment. The crew and vessel are safe,” the centre said. Noel Choong, the centre’s head, said they were investigating the circumstances of the hijacking.

Pirates have attacked a number of vessels in waters off Indonesia, Singapore and Malaysia recently. In April, pirates injured the captain and stole diesel fuel from another Thai-owned tanker off the eastern coast of Malaysia. In the same month, three Indonesian crew were kidnapped and diesel fuel stolen from a Singapore-managed tanker in the Strait of Malacca, an important shipping lane.

Following the fatal shooting of a Yala man in Pattani’s Nong Chik district on Sunday, police yesterday hunted for the victim’s pickup out of fear that the attackers may have taken it to make a car bomb.

Police blamed separatists for the incident.

Pattani police deputy chief Pol Colonel Saravuth Eiamsa-art yesterday led investigators and the bomb squad to inspect the scene on a rural road in tambon Bang Khao. The suspects shot dead Yala man Apiwat Chanthaem, 53, with an M-16 assault rifle and got away with his truck, whilst Apiwat’s friend escaped out of the truck and was rescued by people nearby.

Immigration police yesterday announced the arrest of a Chinese couple who allegedly embezzled Bt40 million before fleeing to Thailand, where they have lain low for nine years.

The suspects, identified as Guan Hui Jong, 53, and Li Xiu Ling, 52, were arrested on Saturday in Thanyaburi in Pathum Thani province, according to the arrest warrant in Shanghai.

Police found that the couple had embezzled some money from Hai Hang Tian Co to invest in the stock market in January 2003 but lost the money and were thus unable to return it to the company. In July 2004, the couple again embezzled 790,000 RMB from the company and fled to Malaysia, before escaping to Thailand and lived here in hiding for nine years, police said. Chinese police claim the couple caused 8 million RMB (Bt40 million) in total damage to the company.

Separately, two 30-year-old Chinese twin brothers Yhee Poh and Yhee Tao, who were wanted by Chinese authorities for trading in arms, were arrested on Sunday. The twins were implicated by Chinese Internet buyers, who were arrested earlier along with 55 guns and over 20,000 bullets.

Meanwhile, police rounded up 25 African crime suspects last month – 22 men and three women. Four of these suspects allegedly carried fake passports; one allegedly possessed narcotics; 12 overstayed their visas, five allegedly lived illegally in Thailand; and two did not state their current addresses according to the 1979 Immigration Act, while another had his visa revoked.

The Thai Embassy in the United Kingdom’s deputy chief of mission Nudhavathna Krishnamra will take charge of the embassy’s affairs following the recall of Thai ambassador Pasan Teparak last week, Foreign Ministry spokesman Sek Wannamethee said yesterday.

The ministry cited propriety as reason for reassigning Pasan, who has close ties with ousted former prime ministers Thaksin and Yingluck Shinawatra.

Sek said Nudhavathna was a capable and reliable diplomat and would be acting on behalf of Pasan for now, adding that no new envoy would be assigned as it was not time for reshuffles yet.

EXPLOSIVE

A vintage aerial bomb discovered yesterday at a site near Bang Sue train station marked for construction of a Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) train station was secured by the Air Force.

Air Force bomb disposal personnel said the 200-plus kilogram bomb, was probably dropped during World War II and may have been the same sort that exploded in April at a scrap-metal shop in Lat Pla Khao in Bangkok after workers tried to blowtorch it open.

The 12 by 46-inch bomb had been ruptured by a backhoe while it was digging up an area near the MRT project site.
