Hello all

 

I believe that this isn't true but I would like to check before I return to Thailand.

 

Someone contacted me via Facebook after he saw a post I made that he didn't like (I condemned a bombing made by a certain group). This all happened while I was outside of Thailand in Australia. He claimed to be part of the Thai army and that he had the ability to put me on a Ban list or some kind of police list and that I would be picked up on arrival. His name was not a normal or even remotely a Thai name.

 

I believe this to just be him trying to intimidate me but I would like to know for sure that I am all good as a trip to Bang Kwang or even just being sent home doesn't appeal.

 

So my question is.... Is it possible for an officer of any sort to add me to a ban list? The only info available to him was my Facebook name, not my passport details etc. Is it possible to see if I am on a list and how would I do it? Contact the Thai Embassy here in Australia? Apply for a 90 day visa? Contact an office or law firm in Thailand?

 

Any help or direction would be much appreciated

 

Thank you

Dan

I think highly unlikely.
I was threatened over a FB post once by Thai military but I ignored it, nothing happened.

Yeah I thought as much. It would be nice to know for sure though. Prob being paranoid

 

Thanks Orchis

Are your comments critical of royal family? If so, yes they can do that. Oterwsie, fear not.

Take note of the above post. Spot on. You have zero issues unless you referred to royal family.

What you thinking OP.

When I was in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia a got a call, the lady said I had a court case pending in the high court and to press this number for extension.

I did press and got through, a man answered the phone, the moment he answered I started shouting abuse at him , even calling his mother names, 4 letters word without waiting for him to speak.

This is how you deal with this kind of people.

Not really my style but yeah but do need to be put in their place at times. 

I try to keep it to the offender rather than an innocent family member... 

 

Thank you

Just condemned a bombing committed by a certain religious group. One that doesn't take any criticism well.

Why would a real Thai military or police officer have any problem with your condemning of a bombing perpetrated by a religious group? That just doesn't make sense.

Possible: Yes.

 

In reality: Probably no.

So possible. 

Any suggestions how to find out?

If you didn't make insulting reference towards the army or royal family then it is unlikely.

As mentioned, possible yes. But I doubt anything will happen if your innocent of the above.

Remember, TIT … anything can happen  !
