Clampdown on postal operators in war on drugs

New measures are to be adopted by government and private postal operators to prevent the mailing of drugs, a joint meeting between the police and the companies revealed on Monday.

 

From now it will be compulsory for post offices to record and store CCTV images of people delivering and receiving parcels for 180 days; the rules do not currently stipulate how long such images must be kept.

 

Furthermore, all parcel deliveries will have to be registered through the use of ID cards, both by the senders and recipients. Currently registrations can simply be done through social media accounts, which do not necessarily provide authenticated identification details.

 

Monday’s meeting was held at the Royal Thai Police headquarters; those present included officials from civilian, military and police anti-drugs agencies, customs and private postal service operators, plus Thailand Post.

 

A private postal operator told the meeting of problems they currently faced, including not having the right to forcibly open suspicious parcels. Many did not own x-ray machines and therefore could not even vet suspicious items inside the parcels, he said.

So, when submitting your 90-day report per post, be sure to get fingerprinted and DNA-tested. That of course after you've made sure your landlord has reported you with a TM30 and you've submitted a TM28 within 24h of your last bowel movement. And do make sure you report your return from the post office to the nearest authotitaaaahhh. Can't have you running free dear alien, now can we?

 

A police state in the making. Fascinating to see it form from the inside.

Sounds like the-land-of-the-free   :wink:

Looks like that's the end of just signing for a parcel at the gate when it's delivered.

 

Next year: DNA samples to be taken when sending or receiving a package.

So that's the end of village security collecting and signing for receipt of any parcels when you are not at home. Thai Post and all couriers will really enjoy making multiple trip so they can catch you at home for signature.

Now you're taking the piss.

I have a prostate problem, this could take quite some time, negating the advantage of EMS.

Thailand Post sadly not.

If you're not at home, they'll leave a pink card asking you to collect the item from the Post Office.

I don't think anybody will deliver anything any more. You will have to track it , then go collect it .

So you can sign  , have your photo taken , get a mouth swab ,  leave some hair and piss in a jar........😁😁😁

Maxiflo does help a little, although on demand can still be problematic 😊

We are lucky, security will sign for PT, save the postie filling out the pink card.

I wonder if they'll be willing to do that in the future, as the postman will apparently need their ID card in order to sign for it?
