Dutch tourist drug and abuse claims all a misunderstanding - he was blind drunk

A Dutch tourist has apologized to the Pattaya police after he claimed he had drugs planted on him, was abused and was extorted out of 40,000 baht. 

 

He also claimed a French volunteer cop was involved in the extortion.

 

He told the cops in Pattaya yesterday that he had found his money in his wardrobe.

 

He thought he had put it in his hotel room safe but he was mistaken. His ATM cards were also in place. 

 

After he realized his mistake he went back to the Pattaya police fearing he might be charged with something like wasting police time. But it was all smiles when he apologized. 

 

He said that he was very drunk and got it all completely wrong. 

 

It was accepted that he had been released without harm after no drugs were found on him during a search when his motorbike was stopped in the early hours of Monday morning. 

 

The tourist has now left the area and is continuing with his holiday in Thailand, reported ONB News who published a picture of a smiling Pattaya station chief Pol Col Apichai Krobpetch.

A bit of a climbdown!  So was he charged with driving drunk or released with a 'warning fine'?

The original report said he was on a M/C taxi.

Were this anywhere but Thailand you would say fair enough and move on. With the amount of corruption here though, you cant help but wonder what else might have been going on behind the scenes here and if his revelation that none of what he alleged happened has been orchestrated?

Looks like it was all a "misunderstanding"    :biggrin:

 

Good deal that the Dutch tourist got it pubilicized so fast ... otherwise there might not have been a "misunderstanding"   :thumbsup:

One man's climb-down is another man's cover-up.

Exactly.

One only needs to have a read of stuff about a French volunteer cop to understand the background of this situation

Tomorrow there will be a new twist in this story, when the mysterious French collaborator appears again. This time in Phuket.

I share your suspicions and the devil as they say is in the details. There was a lot of detail in his original story, including a certain french person, who has figured in many a dark tale coming out of Pattaya police. I am wondering how all of that detail has suddenly been found to be spurious? 40K refund and a pep talk perhaps?

They seek him here, they seek him there
Those Frenchies seek him everywhere
Is he in heaven or is he in hell?
That demned elusive Pimpernel
