Naew Na reported that large numbers of school children were busted for playing truant after a #cinema group offered cut price seats in all their theaters nationwide yesterday. 

Major Cineplex Group offered seats for just 25 baht to mark their 25th anniversary yesterday, also the 25th of the month.

But the promotion seems to have backfired after Thai school children bunked off school to go to the movies.

In one story Naew Na reported on a Facebook post from “Benz Chanon” who commented that the escalators could barely cope with the numbers of people.

Most were schoolchildren, students or parents with children.

In a second story the inevitable had happened – the authorities were rounding up children for truancy. – Naew Na

Airlines won’t employ pilots trained in Thailand

Airlines Don’t Seems to Want Newly Trained #Pilots from #Thailand

Pilots in Thailand are failing to find work despite high global demand in the aviation industry, according to Thailand’s Civil Aviation Training Centre president, Rear admiral Piya Atmungkun.

While International airline operators are competing to offer jobs to pilots, Thai pilots cannot find jobs?

Between 600 and 700 newly graduated pilots are struggling to secure seats in cockpits, he said.

Aviation programs and pilot training schools have mushroomed, but many fail to meet international standards.

New pilots are being churned out continually without information of how many of them are actually employable. This has led to the oversupply of pilots who aren’t up to scratch, he told the Bangkok Post.

“The picture of the Thai aviation industry is being distorted by the claim that we lack pilots. It’s true there is a scarcity of pilots, but that demand is for experienced, not new, pilots,” Piya said.

He believes a plan to establish a “city of aviation” in the Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC) will only increase the supply of domestic aviation personnel.

“Even before the EEC officially opens, there is already a high number of aviation graduates,” Piya said.

“But companies will not employ pilots if their qualifications are not certified according to international standards.”

The UN-based International Civil Aviation Organisation suggests Thailand should set up an aviation centre of excellence in the EEC. Which should also enroll students from Asean countries.

If given the green light, the new centre would offer high-quality training at a more affordable price, he said.

Australian gran wins Malaysia death sentence appeal

An #Australian grandmother who claimed she was tricked into carrying drugs into #Malaysia after falling for an online romance scam Tuesday won her final appeal against the death penalty and will be freed.

Maria Elvira Pinto Exposto was arrested in December 2014 while in transit at Kuala Lumpur airport with 1.1 kilos (2.4 pounds) of crystal methamphetamine stitched into the compartment of a backpack she was carrying.

She was initially cleared of trafficking after a judge ruled in 2017 she did not know she was transporting the drugs, but the acquittal was overturned after prosecutors appealed and she was handed a death sentence.

Capital punishment is mandatory in Muslim-majority Malaysia for anyone convicted of trafficking certain amounts of some controlled substances.

But the Federal Court in the administrative capital Putrajaya, the final court of appeal, overturned that decision and ordered her release.

“The appeal is allowed. The appellant is freed and discharged,” said chief justice Tengku Maimun Tuan Mat.

The mother of four, who was stopped in Malaysia while heading to Australia, had claimed she was fooled into carrying the bag after travelling to China to see someone she met online called “Captain Daniel Smith”, who claimed to be a US serviceman.
