Well when he does get home his story will probably put a few of his friends off a visit and they will spend their retirement dollars somewhere else.

Yup.

 

The place is the pits...

Wow, sneaked in through the exit side. Wow, where were the imigration police, having there play on the computer games or having their many snack periods.

They should be punished for having the exit 2 way.

pathetic really.

Fine the guy 500 Baht and give him a stamp. He is not a real criminal for Gods Sake.

Has ThaiVisa got nothing else to report besides  this horrendous crime. Did the Thai SAS go back home after his capture.

 

There are thousands of people crossing the border and its quite east just to walk around the immigration booths , that border is usuaLLY  very busy and the immigration officers do not spend all day on their phones or eating .

   Prosecute the guy for deliberately entering Thailand illegally

his error is rather minor IMO, he did a border run got stamped out but didn't leave and enter the joining country - hardly crime of the century is it ?

 

simple to correct

I agree with your sentiment.

It's always been a mystery to me why anyone who gets a 'Departed' stamp on  the Thai side of the border then has to actually enter Laos/Cambodia, pay the Entry Fee and then have their passport (2 pages) stamped, just to re-enter Thailand. IMO anyone being 'stamped out' has fulfilled the Immigration requirement, having arrived at the Immigration border post.

Wouldn't it make more sense to have a  'point of no return' before the border, so that those wanting to re enter immediately can turn around and go through the usual re entry process. Why not make the re entry fee 50% of the entry fee over in Laos/Cambodia? This would be a source of income to pay for the staffing at the border posts.

I hope he is in good health, a spell in IDC could see him leave in a box.  The authorities couldn't care less, as to them he's public enemy number one.  In fact, I'd be very surprised if they don't suspect him of all manner of crime.

There could be more to the story. But we just don't know if he did it on purpose or not, so I will not post any negative comments this time.

 

If he is a member of this forum he could post and explain what he was thinking.

What childish antics by Thai immigration. Can't they ever do their job without calling in the press for photo session for every little thing they do. Do Thai men never grow up. Who are they trying to impress. Very strange.

Very true..

 

..and those who applaud -from the sidelines-are guilty of the same repugnant behaviour too.

 

Apparently they have overlooked Pastor Niemoller's words.."..and then they came for me."

Sounds like he misunderstood something and now they are making him look like the evil foreigner. He certainly tried as he travelled to the bridge twice. 

I agree.

No, they don’t grow up. 

 

Their lives are full of such failure and non-events that when something happens where they can make it a big deal, they do. 

 

“Look, look, look, we made an arrest! We did our job for once! Look at how big and important we are!”

 

No doubt they all had drinks that night to celebrate then drove drunk to the local brothel full of 14 - 15 year old girls trafficked from Laos.

Get rid of all immigration officers and just let foreigners come and go as they please ?

No, Just get rid of the useless ones and corrupt ones.

Trouble is there won't be,   more than a hand full left, then.

 

But just make sure you get them,  Evil Falang criminal over stayers.

 

Low hanging fruit are all, the Police are interested in.
