New Immigration boss "Big Oud" shows his teeth: Orders transfer of Ranong chief after slow service

 Lt-Gen Sompong Chingduang has made his first decisive move as the new immigration chief. 

 

 He has ordered the transfer to clerical duties of the chief of Ranong immigration.

 

Pol Col Weerayot Karunyathorn was relieved of his post following complaints from Myanmar authorities after delays at the Andaman checkpoint back on February 7th during the TBC meeting, reported Daily News. 

 

He will be replaced by Pol Col Phairat Phukcharoen with an investigative committee set up to look into the goings on at the checkpoint in Thailand's south. 

 

Yesterday Lt-Gen Sompong spoke about the high expectations of his staff at border checkpoints  throughout the kingdom saying that they were windows to the outside world.

 

He demands good service from his officers with advance planning to cater for special occasions and public holidays both in Thailand and in neighboring countries when traffic may be heavier than normal. 

 

His statement appeared to be what led Daily News to speculate that the transfer to clerical duties was as a result of poor and slow service. 

 

Lt-Gen Sompong also spoke of the need for good service at airports citing delays during a storm at Don Muang airport on 25th April as another occasion when expectations were not met. 

 

Sompong replaced Lt-Gen Surachate "Big Joke" Hakparn after the latter was demoted to an adviser role in the PM's office last month. 

 

Sompong is known as Big Oud  though he was referred to as "The Oud" by Daily News today. 

 

Oud refers to the Thai word for the sound of a pig or "oink".

Probably working slowly trying to deal with new rules and regulations that are interpreted differently by different offices, perhaps he could get all offices to work from the same page.

And then I woke up!

send them on a secondment to an office that provides a good speedy service or a swap - and reward the heads and staff of efficient offices with a bonus

Well yes but that what should be happening is that they are doing their jobs correctly and professionally as they are pid to you as per their contract of employment.  

 

In Industry I had to move a Thai manager to another location because he was continuously giving cash and other benefits to 90% of the staff under his leadership, just for doing their jobs, and it had got to the point where several of his reporting staff wee negotiating with him 'I don't think I can do that but for an extra 10,000 this month I can' and he would instantly agree. And more.

 

This scenario had become 'SOP', and the next manager had a very big battle to stop this and get people to do the work they were expected to do by their agreed contracts.

Next time you're waiting in line at swampy for the third hour just bellow oink oink and all your problems will magically disappear. As might you yourself too.

 Then the imm. lady's attitude change to dragon lady for each of the Thai students, she was simply insulting and racist. 

Might have something to do with a couple of decades of Thai massages popping up in every hamlet. I doubt they've got green cards. A bit of a case of somnamnaa.

indeed, rewards must be given for exceptional work - hitting targets etc
