The move followed the June 15 daytime fight between 100 members of two rival motorcycle-taxi stands over the prime location, which led to two deaths. Police said the legally registered "Udomsuk 1" motorcycle-taxi stand's members, led by Pramook Wichiendilokkul, started the fight with their rivals whose "Udomsuk 2" queue is in front of a Siam Commercial Bank branch, as the first group claimed they had been losing customers. Nakhon said the authorities had decided to close the second taxi stand as it was not authorised to operate and was occupying a smart taxi stand space. Manop Mingmongkol and Piya Poungkesorn would face the charges of conspiring to murder, violating the Firearms Act, starting a brawl and creating public disorder. Police have twice raided Pramook's house in Soi Udomsuk 26 and no incriminating evidence was found, said Metropolitan Police divisional chief Maj-General Mongkol Warunno.

Johnson had ducked out of the first TV debate on Sunday and has carefully stage-managed his media engagements in a contest that remains his to lose. - Frantic search for leader -Tuesday's debate did little to alter a growing sense that Johnson would need to make an error of monumental proportions not to win at this stage. Johnson picked up 126 of the 313 Conservative MPs' votes cast Tuesday. Stewart fired the most direct barbs at Johnson on Tuesday by arguing that "no-deal is not a credible threat". The Daily Telegraph suggested that Stewart and Johnson had moved closer to a face-to-face showdown "after emerging as the big winners" from Tuesday's vote and debate.

The findings come from a new report by Food Industry Asia (FIA) and research firm IGD. The first of its kind in Thailand, the report titled “Healthier Product Reformulation in Thailand” surveyed both consumers and food and beverage (F&B) businesses to better understand industry efforts on delivering improved nutrition through reformulation, as well as consumer behaviour and perception on products tweaked to become healthier. However, the report indicated that product reformulation can support the health push without relying on any change of consumer behaviour. However, consumers remain unwilling to compromise on taste for health benefits, with 82 per cent of respondents indicating they would accept reformulated products only if the flavour was retained. The increased demand for healthier products has led to strong commercial incentive for companies to invest in reformulation.

On Wednesday morning, representatives of all three operators, AIS, DTAC, and True Corp, submitted their applications for licences to the NBTC. The NBTC today put on sale three slots of the 700MHz spectrum at a price of Bt17.584 billion each. The applicants will select their targeted spectrum slot this afternoon. The sale of the 700MHz spectrum stems from the junta’s recent launch of relief measures to ease financial pressures on the three 900MHz telecom operators as well as digital TV companies. However, the relief measures include a condition that any 900MHz licence holder taking up the relief measures must also purchase a 700MHz spectrum slot from the NBTC.
