Thirty eight year old Tomas Kroka was arrested following a raid on Gaia Nature Spa at 10pm on Thursday.

Mr Kroka was unable to show police the correct permits for operating a spa business in Thailand. When police asked to see his passport he was found  to have overstayed in Thailand by 28 days.

 

77 Jowo reported that he has been charged with operating a business without permission, overstay and engaging in work outside of what is permitted.

 

He is being held at Koh Phangan Police Station.

 

Police said they raided the spa after receiving a tip off it was being run illegally.

The police relying on tip offs again.

 

I would have thought immigration's all-new-all-singing-all-dancing database would have allowed them to 'pounce' as soon as he went into one day overstay, never mind twenty-eight days.

The tip off was regarding an illegally run business, not an overstaying 'two-legs-bad' foreigner.

L.O.S.  Land of Snitches!  I wonder if they get paid, like those snitching on the motorcycles parked on the pavement in Bangkok. 

 

Must be easy to get into the police force here; it's not like a degree in common sense will be a requirement.

Not too easy, they'll need to put up a chunk of money, whatever degree you have.

You're quite right.  I didn't mention the money because it's common knowledge.  However, the big money is for the sought-after posts; a bit like local elections - the winner is the biggest contributor to the government coffers.  I have an in-law who used to be a local councillor in her home town, and she is seriously minted.

If you work – or do anything else that might be illegal – keep extremely low profile under the radar, and never interfere with some business that Thais already do.

From experience, and purely as a comparison, the UK authorities don't seem capable of pouncing as a result of their data bases. Nor do they seem to bother with tip offs to their report line!

 

At least the authorities here are making an effort to catch illegal immigrants or those working illegally.
