The public were urged to keep calling 1178 to help with this initiative.

 

I keep calling this number to report my overstaying neighbor but nobody picks up.

 

   Ditch the snitch!

Ah so nice to hear they are showing the love to this hard core 83 year old retired guy. How dare he! If I was him I would be on my way to Cambodia or Vietnam and never look back.

Why is it that, police in Thailand always seem to find the oldest and most vulnerable of expats. I doubt wether they would arrest a strapping 6 foot overstayer or probably when he first overstayed he was a strapping 6 footer and they waited till he was old enough for the police to handle. 

Well..you obviously haven't come from The Nation's endless reserve of "we hate Farangs" bunch of newbies.True flash in the pans they are.

 

Best of luck with your posting career.

At one time the British Embassies used to pay your fare back home maybe the system got abused and they used to take your passport off you until you had paid them back 

 

I don't know what they did way back when, but for a large number of years now, they have allowed people to linger in IDC for months and months awaiting on friends and relatives to send the cash. They have no time for what they class as ' feckless tourists and miscreants ' and really make a person sweat.

 

Even British prisoners that are repatriated under the transfer prisoner agreement with Thailand cannot get another passport until they have repaid the British Embassy for their airfare home.

 

Most of them travel back on emergency travel documents issued by the Embassy but are ' put on stop ' in applying/ receiving another passport until they have paid up for their return flight from Thailand.

They wouldn't be arrested by the police, which sh1thole do you come from? It's definitely not a western country!! 

They would be assessed in their home and there would be due process.

Not chucked into some disgusting cell and then the even worse inhumane IDC

They sure would be arrested by the Border Agency in my country, maybe the police would be involved also.

 

Where did it state that this chronic overstayer has been "chucked into some disgusting cell and then the even worse inhumane IDC"?
