Hello, Phuket Express Readers and Supporters!
The following is our weekly feature in which we highlight the top local stories in our area of Phuket from the past week. The number of stories differs from week to week.
These are chosen and curated by our editorial team and are designed for our readers to get a quick “catch-up” of important stories they may have missed. We publish many stories daily and it is easy to lose track of important events or changes in our area. We do national recaps in a separate article, this is only the top local stories in Phuket province.
They are in no particular order of importance but roughly in order of publishing. These are from Monday, September 4th, 2023, to Sunday, September 10th, 2023.
Let’s get started and see what the top local stories were!
- A Tuk Tuk taxi driver has sustained injuries by gunshot after an argument with another Tuk Tuk taxi driver in Patong.
The male suspect, Mr. Kosit Prompiwat, 36, had already escaped in another Tuk Tuk taxi by the time police arrived. He later surrendered as seen below.
He initially had claimed that the injured man and his friend attacked him first and that he only used the gun to protect himself in self-defence.
Relevant officials have still not been able to firmly identify where or what the debris is from all three recent findings as of press time.
It was not mentioned why or how exactly Mr. John damaged the villa.
It took two days for them to release all capsules from their stomach.
This strange story captured the imagination of social media over the past week.
That’s all for this week, as always thanks for your support!
