These stupid "reenactments".

How do the victims feel about this circus?

Sadly its part of being in Thailand.  Victim is victimized - again!  Welcome to the land of smiles.

That is good. It’s also their job. But my criticism here is purely the re-enactment. 

👌 😁

It’s a bad translation. He’s not an engineer he is a technician. 

 

It isn't a bad translation. Every medium-large hotel has an "Engineering" department - both Thai and Western.

They're mistakenly called engineer in Thailand. In the west they are called plumbers, carpenters, painters, or the more general term, "handyman." Few have the formal education or degree to earn the title of engineer.

Maintaining a hotel complex is done by "tradies" - either in-house or by contractors.  Engineers would only be involved with upgrades of modifications.  Not even huge complexes containing shops and hotels employ engineers.  Once it is built and running it up to the tradies to maintain

 

I have no idea about formal qualification paths for trades careers in Thailand.  Most of the ones I have met learned from their father or uncle!

A picture was shown to the suspects who confirmed that this was the motorcyclist who robbed them. 

Amazing Thailand where Farangs, when they are the victims, remain suspects. Probably of some TM30 infringement.
