Claire Johnson was due back in Sydney on January 8, but sent frantic text messages from a Thailand detention centre. She claims she wouldn’t be going home because ‘serious stuff went down’.

 

She sent texts to a friend saying she was ‘so scared… get media involved’.

 

A story in Mail Online says 46 year old Claire Johnson was due back in Sydney on January 8, but a week later contacted a friend to tell her she was ‘so scared’ and locked up in immigration detention.

If it's the same, That cosmetic holidays I came across a few years ago bringing groups of people over to Thailand to have their cosmetic surgery and then recuperate in some resort for however many days needed and be out patient to the hospital.

They would need a W/P to operate that kind of business

If you had property for rent you could list it with them, sometime ago now

I would add to that that if there is any input of medical care from this person, she would be in breach of laws or regulations relating to working in the medical field without authorisation from the appropriate professional body or council.

Looks and sounds dodgy.  Work permit issue as others have suggested.  I see fluff and puff

It seems there is nothing special about her case. 

She has apparently been travelling for a year and running a medical tourism company in Phuket. 

She has either overstayed or worked illegally and can't pay her fines.

 

 

Could she be owing monies to some medical institutions or trampled on someone toes hard enough to get the police and the immigration involved?...

Thais can operate as many “illegal business” as they want , as long as they pay the correct amount to someone “ . Foreigners ...it’s a no no !

And does she have a Thai license to practice? Can tell you they are quite reluctant to hand out those, you'll have to cross quite a few hurdles on the way. I believe the tests are conducted in English these days, but what makes them "let you through" requires more than just medical knowledge...
