A vinyl board displayed at immigration HQ yesterday hailed Section 38 - the law whereby a foreigner must have their whereabouts reported - as being behind the capture of a Chinese man. 

 

Naew Na called him Mr Lerng in their story, the board named him as Mr Tao, 64. He was pictured in shirt and shorts following his arrest in Loei, in Thailand's isaan region.

 

The board showed how he had travelled from China to Thailand.

 

Immigration deputy chief Pol Maj-Gen Chuchat Thareechat explained that the suspect had come into Thailand on a tourist visa in February of 2014. 

 

He had been given permission to stay until April of that year. 

 

Thereafter he applied to the UNCHR for refugee status but was denied. He claimed that he had been persecuted by the Chinese because he was a member of the Falun Gong religious sect. 

 

Naew Na said he was reported by a house owner because he had stayed for a long time and had no job and no apparent means to support himself. 

 

He was found to be on overstay of 2,024 days.

 

Maj-Gen Chuchat said he was following orders from the prime minister, deputy prime minister and head of the Royal Thai Police to arrest lawbreaking Thais and foreigners. 

 

The law states: 

 

Section 38 : The house – master , the owner or the possessor of the residence , or the hotel manager where the alien , receiving permission to stay temporary in the Kingdom has stayed , must notify the competent official of the Immigration Office located in the same area with that hours , dwelling place or hotel, within 24 hours from the time of arrival of the alien concerned. If there is no Immigration Office located in that area , the local police official for that area must be notified.

And here we have it. Make new rules then you will have new lawbreakers or simply make them leave as can't comply. One thing, if this guy is Falun Gong, he is still in for a surprise at home in China. Hopefully won't disappear and have his organs harvested.

How could they possibly have explained this without the vinyl board? 😂

Yeah, I agree! Most strange of all, though. Why is Thailand almost in the same place as Australia? I call for fake news. He couldn´t possibly have been travelling that way.

Thai citizen's lack of (geographic) education?

No problem! As long as they do not need a pre-programmed GPS to find their way home from 7-11, they are okey in my book. 😉

Do not ask for much, and much shall never be recieved.
