Big deal every country has a hot line. Australia has a hotline to dob in people you know that are scamming welfare. Why on earth would you think Thailand should be exempt from hot lines ?

America is expected to be exempted from immigration laws why shouldn't Thailand?

How do you know that?

 

Immigration might have been doing the rounds and noticed a foriegner so thought they'd check coz they'd not seen him in local office?

How do you see the difference between him and a Thai as an asian is not consider as a foreigner unless he do something bad that may destroy the Thai image ...

Unless he was a wanted criminal I couldn't do their job. Deport a 76 years old, been in Thailand for 100 years never been back to japan and all he knows is here. Nope couldn't be that mean!!

 

Obviously you need immigration laws and 19 years is a joke  but there must be guys out there who have spent their cash building a home, live with their Thai family are in their twilight years, can no longer make a living. Harmless and Surviving on much less that is demanded at any minute a knock at the door and their life as they know it is over. 

 

Sad!!!

I hope that Mr. Nakahara doesn't join the ranks of the homeless in one of the Japanese cities.  I have an elderly American friend who is provided a room in a Japanese retirement facility.  His room is about 4 X 6 meters and provides room for a bed, chair and Japanese TV with a small sink, tiny refrigerator and small toilet by the entrance.  The whole place is very spartan and not comfortable but it is new and in a decent neighborhood.  It's livable on a basic level but loneliness is a big problem.  Retirement under the Japanese Healthcare System is only bearable if you have significant savings.  Many Japanese do.  Mr. Nakahara probably has none.

An increasing number of the elderly in Japan are committing petty crimes to purposely be sent to prison.  In prison they receive food, lodging, healthcare, and companionship.

Exactly. Well said, sir. The US has a website where you can report illegals. They also have a website where you can report people you believe are engaging in tax fraud. Very easy to get anyone that upsets you audited in the US. Just fill out a form and adios to that person. Hence, why only the ultra-rich elites cheat on taxes in the US.

Must say I am tempted. 19 years hiding / on the run, appeals far more than 19 visits to CW Immigration.

 

I knew another Japanese, who was sent to Thailand to work for a Jap' company. He never showed up for work and was found holed up with the girls in a short time hotel.

I thought for simple origami the attraction was two-fold?
