This is why they need our help to carry out the 90 day and TM30 reports (or at least a fine in their place).

In Thailand it is only the law abiding who get treated like criminals.

Whistle blowing! How can somebody at a certain age who has invested in a bar, resto and his own life can feel relax and confident that he will live till his death in the country where he has elected as home which can turn from sweet to bitter!

'I think I'm in heaven with all this free booze'  - time to sober up and face life  -  oh oh!

 

Talking to the mirror again?

Well....actually no. TH30/90 fines only capture people who are in the immigration system and who, for the most part, want to do the right thing.

 

Those foreigners outside the immigration system will never be caught in crackdowns like that. In most cases, they need to be dobbed in. Perhaps a job for a vigilante like your self?

Yes of course, but with more people doing TM30s etc at least immigration would have some sort of records before someone drops off the radar. In the case of this brit bar owner, it looks like he hadn't moved far from his last know address, 8 years later.

Plus when 40 drown in a boat - no one gives a shit, the Thais make some half-arsed apology to President Xi and it's back to business as usual. 

 

Well, there are plenty of Chinese in the world, as the world's most populous country...

 

So apparently, neither China nor Thailand mind too much if a few dozen of them drop off along the way....  :whistling:

He probably never “ owned “ it in the first place and if married maybe the closest he came was if he used the User Fruc provision or something similar.

So the family were probably going to obtain it in the end.

   User Fruc or whatever, are not worth the paper they are written on.

  If the thai family decided to move in,  the farlang would not last very long.

    Time to move on, better luck next time.

'following complaints' - this means that:

1) someone informed on him

2) Immigration are unable to keep track on over-stayers, despite what they might claim

 

Someone who might want his bar business - maybe?

This is a really sad story just like the Thai mother with her +/- 15 year old daughter who had to leave Denmark after her husband died. I don't have a link to this happening, maybe it can be found with a browser search. I'm sure there are lots of cases like this. Very sad and utterly disturbing.

they should get used to it because i predict a surge in overstays with the changes to the retirement process and i doubt they will catch many...
