Try getting 100,000b out of a Thai,then try getting 100,000b out of a tourist who's been stuck in a cell for a few days.they will use you like a hostage.ive had a friend from uk done for drink driving and held this way (50,000b) or the threat of court and monkey house for long time.he was a tourist and never knew better so coughed up.ive had the same in Phuket airport.2 bottles of spirits and some viagra I bought in Thailand.do I want monkey house or can we help ourselves to your holiday money.(35,000b)

I do not know about possessing  fake viagra without a prescription but Smuggling and drunk driving are serious crimes got off easy.

Thinking the Brit here may have mental problems the way he is handling the situation is not normal.

She is furious that special consideration if shown to "farangs" who break the rules. 

 

She has claimed that after a British Embassy visit the man was encouraged to stay on "for the sake of international relations". 

"Encouraged to stay on" by whom?
Hopefully she can corroborate that statement.

I think there is more to this, we haven't heard his side of the story, the Landlord claims he owes 8k baht, I'm going to assume that he doesn't think so, and there seems to be an issue over receipts - you should always get a receipt when paying a bill - simple as that, why would he create such a fuss, why would he not pay his rent ?

"Foreigners break the rules in Thailand and nothing is done. They are even protected.

 

"We are Thais and this is our country but we can't take any action. If it was someone from Burma they wouldn't be given this protection. 

I didnt realize that Burmese are not Foreigners.

I am always super- amused, when some rich Thai, is complaining about being treated "unfairly" and a "farang" actually seems to be right and protected by some kind of law!

 

"Farang should be treated like animals or property and all Thais should be allowed to take advantage of them! This is our country!"

 

I hope, she gets fleeced real good!

Sums this racist chick up perfectly, these two lines.

Hope the bloke wrecks the gaff now.

Then he will go to jail and has to pay more, very solid advice.

How would you feel if the roles were reversed ?

What if the property owner was a Felang and the tenant was a Thai ?

Would you still then hope that the Thai non paying tenant fleeces the Ferang ?

Unfortunately, the roles in this country are hardly EVER reversed!

So...strawman- argument!

What She says is true , if a Thai doesnt pay his rent , he would be forced, one way or another to leave the property , this guy is getting special protection because hes a Westerner .

  Surely they could sort this issue out , without such a fuss ?

How do you know that? Taking her word at face- value?

How about the claim, he paid the rent and she didn't give him a receipt?

I have been in exactly the same situation at one time and later was running after the deposit I paid for the apartment I rented, for 8 month and then had to "settle" for half of it, because I had no receipt!

Every month, for over a year, I was asking for that receipt and it was always "Oh...forget...give you next time" and so on!

True that!

 

The British Embassy makes house calls?

They were probably his buddies delivering beer.

He stated that he didnt pay the rent because a receipt wouldnt have been given if he had

One of the cheaper blocks, where people buy a few adjoining units to knock the walls out for a bigger one.
