Region 5 Immigration chief Maj-Gen Ponganan Khlaikleung was all smiles yesterday as he went to praise his staff at the immigration offices in Chiang Mai following the latest arrests of foreigners. 

 

He was in town after 932 people were arrested in what has become known as the "pre-coronation crime sweep" that took place nationwide from the 26th to 30th of last month.

The sweep was designed to flush out foreign undesirables causing trouble or potential trouble ahead of the royal coronation ceremonies this long weekend. 

 

It included more than 100 people not reporting their address.

Illegal entry: 698

Not reporting address: 146

I know it's been in the news for a few months now, but for the crime of not reporting your address, I see it's an arrestable offence. Has it always been like, rather than just a fine?

Also, how much is the fine? Or is it 'at the discretion of the immigration officer'?

 

edit:

(sorry, most of my questions were already posted while I was composing this)

Soft crimes.

Easy work.

And praised for doing their jobs.

Shouldn't this be a continual daily scenario ?

Strange they say 932 arrested but can only show photo of 2, probably trying the BJ method of Massive bs.

thaivisa only have only showed two, but on the other news many others are shown. Turn on your television.

 

Police say 932. Colin in Issan says they are lying. (Bs)

Police have reports, suspects locked up. Colin has his imagination. 

 

Well done to the police.

They tried that in 1942, it didn't work out that well.  Mind you, the movie was good and it did produce a new Thai attraction for tourists. 

ouch !
