The authorities offered him a kind of compensation, that he refused. What more do they have to do for pleasing this man?

They are never going to give him money for his round trips to the hospital. That is something he would have been doing anyway.

What does he want? A gold medal for fierce fighting against the Thai system? Good luck, dude!

"a kind of compensation"?

 

You mean a type of compensation? Presumably he is after the right kind of compensation - one that will make them think before ripping off foreigners again again!

The childish behavior seems to be in your own words. The of the words "he should, are worthless, unless you are in charge of sonething related to him or the hospital.

So my opinion is worthless, and yours stand above the rest.

The article says he's fighting for justice. Lets hope you don't get sick yourself and get ripped off because of the color of your skin or nationality.

Whist i applaud his stand, hes won hes got his overcharge back!

However i am, personally  not really understanding the continued fight .

Guess i would have taken the money and ran also its highly unlikely they will overcharge him again

Just be a bit thankful that he is at least prepared in principle to fight for all farangs' good cause - that of not being unfairly over-charged.

 

Yeah, like that´s gonna work? One man fighting for all, in Thailand? Here there must be everyone fighting for one goal to succeed. Now it´s up to all that read about them to react same for making a change.

No, it is not.

It is called being steadfast.

He has a valid reason to walk this path, so he does, simply because he wants hospitals NOT to overcharge.

A One Man Band. Great! He´s going for a goal that is impossible.

This may make prayut listen, it isn't only taxi drivers that rip us off in compassionate Thailand. The man has courage and walks the walk. I dare say he will now get more compensation to make this go away and the hospital may get prosecuted into the bargain. Maybe, just maybe, Prayut will now let deeds follow his words for once.

The man has cancer.  How about some respect and compassion for a fellow human being.

 

He has every right to be treated equally to a Thai person.

He is doing excellent work so that the concerned hospital and other hospitals stop ripping foreigners. 

 

Most of them send you for this and that test which are not required. If you have throat infection, some hospital doc will get Dengue test also which is THB3000++. Of course symtums are totally different but the BS doc will puzzle you. This is also rip off method with unnecessary test.

The only one man band is you and your negative and uncaring attitude.  Nothing is impossible if you are in the right.

What are you on about. I´ve never even mentioned anything about his cancer. Never said that he shouldn´t be treated like a human beeing and be equally treated. If he want that, then accept the compensation. Never said he can not file a formal complaint either. Of course he should, but that can be done even with accepting the compensation.
