UPDATE: Supreme Court Sends Sek To The Slammer

Supreme Court Send Sek To The Slammer

It will be jailhouse rock tonight for singer Sek Loso after the Supreme Court today rejected his appeal against a 2½ sentence handed down by Minburi court in 2018.

The judges denied his appeal over the sentence for charges he was found guilty of that included resisting arrest, threatening police with a gun, illegal possession of firearms and drug abuse after a public meltdown at his home in December 2017.

Sek, real name Seksan Sukpimai, was banged up for 2½ years back in October 2018 after his claim of suffering bipolar disorder was rejected.

The charges stemmed from a standoff with police at his home in Bangkok after he refused to surrender to a warrant for the gun firing incident at Wat Khao Khun Phanom in Nakhon Si Thammarat following a concert he’d performed at on Dec 29 2017 – an offence he was later found guilty of and served five days in jail for.

During the standoff at his Bang Khen home, he threatened officers with a 9mm pistol and broadcast the entire episode on Facebook Live.

After he was finally cuffed he was tested for drugs which returned positive for methamphetamine.

He was sentenced to six months each for drug abuse and illegal firearm possession and one year and six months for resisting arrest with a gun with both sentences to be served concurrently.

After almost two-and-a-half years of trying to evade prison, time has finally caught up with the rock star.

UPDATE As the story developed throughout the day, it appears Sek was granted bail pending another appeal.

Five Dead In Bangkok Bound Bus Fire

Five people, three adults and two children, died in the early hours of Tuesday morning when the Bangkok bound bus they were travelling on caught fire in Khon Kaen Province.

12 passengers who suffered serious injuries are being treated at Sirindhorn Hospital while 16 others managed to flee the inferno unscathed.

The bus driver, 48-year-old Phsamdee Khamkhon, told police the bus had left Udon Thani heading for Mo Chit in Bangkok on Monday night as scheduled.

He said as he was passing through Ban Haet district he had a tyre blow out which suddenly set the back of the bus ablaze. The fire spread rapidly and by the time he stopped the vehicle, it was engulfed in flames.

It took firefighters 30 minutes to bring the blaze under control.

Maj. Gen. Putthipong Musikul, Deputy Chief of Khon Kaen Provincial Police, led a team of investigators to examine the wreckage this morning and question all who managed to escape.
