Been coming and going in Thailand since 1998, living here in CM for 9 years never stopped and asked for my passport in all those years. Even traffic stops never been asked for passport. Maybe the vivid imagination some of the posters here have is just that imagination

Same, same after nearly 13 years of living here !

This was obviously a big event for the cops up there. Nawna listed the names and titles of all officers involved in the arrest and showed a photograph of six of them posing behind the little old Japanese guy who has indeed broken the law but in a victimless crime, compared to all the murders, rapes, robbery, drug dealing etc going on in Petchabun. I would have thought one junior plod from Immigration and another from the local cop shop would have sufficed leaving the senior cops free to be out catching real criminals. 

They all want their five minutes of fame. Probably get a picture framed and put on Mums wall to show how 'brave' son is apprehending dangerous criminals when not counting fines, bribes and drinking coffee or something 'a little stronger' !

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.


That’s 100 times better than retirement with no money in America which means homeless on dangerous streets, stinking in filthy clothes and usually inclement weather.
It iwould be better to be be in Thailand in a walk up apartment with shower, toilet and and a fan too but if you can’t stump up the 800k deposit that won’t fly anymore.

..oh well..he had a good run..hope he ends up ok.

Yeah, I think he will be ok if not better off...blacklisted is NOT all that bad.  It's a favor or compliment in disguise.  Like a woman that initiates a divorce, she's doing the man a favor.  Freedom is a powerful thing.  Especially when free from a living Hell.

Silly bugger upset someone, maybe an ex-wife, maybe someone who asked to borrow money.

Immigration did not just turn up without out someone snitching on him.

silly man. do not underestimate immigration or think they can be used. Thai Immigrationa always is aware of all farangs, they know the troublemakers as well the illegals. Its just up to them to act on that. Maybe their bosses up in bkk upped the numbers for catching illegals.

another case that clearly proofs the Good Guys In Bad Guys Out slogan is just a complete piece of garbage.

Last week an Altzheimer patient forced out of Thailand, now a poor old harmless Japanese guy. Shame on Thailand.

There seems to be no compassion in this Buddhist country,as you say at 76 apart from overstay what has this guy done wrong in the last 19 yrs ? he should be given a pardon. Now i am wondering has he even got an up to date passport,maybe he has Alzheimer and simply forgot the last 19 yrs. :giggle:   

He is not even a Farang but a fellow Asian. I can fully understand and agree, and even VOLUNTEER to kick out all those bloody lowlife cinical farangs who walk the street with their bargirl-turned-wife and a big sour smileless expression, and who spend their hours on forums complaining about Thailand, visa or not, kick them out, lowlife cultureless bastards, but why kick out a seemingly old pensioner, and many other harmless foreign people?

Not Thailand. It always turned a blind eye to overstayers and never or seldom actively removed them and only in the case of an overstayed troublemaker.

That was ten years ago , Thailand is quite strict on overstayers these days
