" They asked the public to keep the calls coming to the immigration's hotline to report illegal activity. "

 

 

Why would not they stop themselves?

I do not know if it's true but I suspect that it is:
ask for 5,000 baht instead of the 1,900 officials for the extension of an annual visa, what is it? If not theft ...and illegal activity :1zgarz5:

The authorities boasting about bullying the poor and harmless on behalf of the unelected shameless. Thailand has sunk so low.

Alien has always referred to the idea of being a foreigner. In London the alien registration office is near Southampton Row.  There appears to be a generation of uneducated people whose knowledge comes from Star wars or Men in Black. Or are some people trying to be funny.
