Why as a relative of the victim would you lend yourself for such a 'promotional' photo. 

They are often sprung on the relatives as they attend the police station. Read about the press conference that the family of the English girl murdered in Koh Tao. They were told to wait in a room only to discover it was full of press photographers.

 

The press pay the police to give them juicy photo ops. However it is unlikely the press paid for this one.

It's as equally clumsy as the amount in the first place...  undeveloped and juvenile minds don't see the the issue.

and the Arab rider ?

what happened to him ?

why is he not paying up ?

Do you think that he is still in the country? I doubt it.

 

Anyway, the Thai owner of the bike should have full insurance for it, and the insurance should pay for any third party losses. Will that happen? I doubt it.

many thais complained but my bet is a lot of thais think that is about what a farang life is worth, hence the amount

Pity they did not give him a cheque as opposed to a check, but they seem to teach 'Americanish' here and not English anyway!! 555

Nutcha Rin was more conciliatory saying that it may be small but it was the thought that counts.

How much thought went into 5,000 baht?

"A man on “big bike” strikes and kills a Russian Tourist on Thappraya Road.

At 1:00 AM this morning a man with no identification but believed to be in his early twenties struck and killed a 37-year-old Russian Tourist on Thrappraya Road near the underpass to Pattaya while she was trying to cross the street.

Witnesses stated the driver of the 650CC bike was driving at high speed when 37-year-old Anna Kisna was struck trying to cross the street. The man’s bike then crashed into a parked car nearby. He was wearing a helmet.

Medics at the scene did all they could to save Ms. Kisna, who was here on vacation with friends, but she passed away at the hospital.

The unidentified driver suffered serious but non-life-threatening injuries and is now at a local hospital where police will attempt to identify and interview him after he has significantly recovered."

The key thing is that why would anybody with any self-respect wanna accept Bt 5,000 baht after a relative has died and worst even pose for such pictures??????

 

had it been a relative or friend of mine i would have told them very clearly where to put the 5000 baht

 

 

 

that amount, 5000 baht would be fine as a nightly walking street lottery lucky number draw but not to relay condolences

What the police in Thailand are doing seems more and more an awesome demonstration of their incapacity!
Millions of baht are spent on cars and motorcycles, appeased by the heroic adventures of some single officer, but they don't do what they really should do, control traffic, capture the real criminals, not just some over-stay and now this farce!

For those people to be standing there, with a smile on their faces, says it all. Death is just not taken that seriously here. Especially the death of a foreigner. $165? Really?

 

50,000 or 500,000 baht maybe. But 5,000? That is substantially worse than nothing.

Hopefully this is only a small gesture to the family of 

the deceased and the Kuwaiti national, part of a gang

of ten Arabs on motorcycles racing around Pattaya,

should compensate the family fully.

 

The police should also be charging him with

manslaughter.

Here's the article of what happened:

Absolutely Unbelievable !

 

Instead of deporting and banning the arab gangs that race the streets for years now:

https://forum.thaivisa.com/topic/990841-troops-police-warn-arab-road-racers-in-pattaya/

 

They hand out this Pathetic sum as compensations ??!!

Its like getting your loved one killed and then receiving a spit in your face with a smile.

 

I hope all the world would see what a life of a farang worth here !

 

👎👎👎

Pathetic show of not only poor taste by the Police Officer/Station, but for all of Thailand.

500,000 baht would be much more consoling. After all isn't a minimum in most Thai insurance policies for victims around 1,000,000 baht? Whoever that young lady is receiving the presented paltry gift should have refused to accept or participate in such a inappropriate photo opp with these people!!
