Fighting for justice: Dutch engineer with cancer interviewed by Thai media

Recommended Posts

He will probably be charged for tending goats which is a job Thai people can do and surely has no permit.

wary of getting the best treatment if that is so .

Why stay in this exploitative business relationship? Try another hospital.

This is so weird. Regardless of his condition why would you even care they charge 300 THB per 3 months visit or even if it was 3000? Maybe if its 30K he may have a point. Guess no insurance either.

 

 

 

So charging someone 6 times the price because of the colour of their skin and where they come from is okay, is it? <sigh>

Go public and either prevent them from ripping the next person off or maybe someone in authority will look at it to prevent them tarnishing Thailand's image. Tourism's already taking a kicking, maybe this will make them look further into the dual pricing and standards. I have my own thoughts on that one, of course, but maybe, eventually, something might get done. As sure as eggs is eggs, if it's all brushed under the carpet then nothing will change.

Principle!

 

The bill actually say foreigner 300 baht, per visit i presume.

 

300 is a days wage here, please explain why it's ok to add that amount to a bill. Any amount due to nationality actually.

 

Insurance is not the point, adding a fee based on your nationality is.

Exactly.

I applaud the man for standing up to the injustice. I realize that I am not in the 'West" now and that things are done differently here but where I come from, if someone were discriminated against financially by a business because they were from a different country or culture, I would be rich after the major law suite I would bring. 

 

There is nothing wrong and everything right in standing up for principal.

weird, if just one man tries to set something straight, he is a whiner.

Until it is starting to work, then they think aaah ok good.

If a big group is to set something straight, then they dont consider them whiners? 

Respect nowadays for others is very low and with multimedia everything is made as a joke.

The overcharging is already in investigation in Thailand, so probably this came to attention

and is now a story.

It is at one point, you might think and now i go all in, as you are fed up with the BS.

Many just sit down and do nothing. They whine about the guy, nothing else.

I have respect for this man to bring it out and fight it.
