Immigration's BMW "Smart Cars" the latest tool to rid Thailand of illegal foreigners

Naew Na published two reports - one from Pattaya and one from Nonthaburi - in which immigration's much heralded Smart Cars (BMWs) were used  to arrest illegal foreigners. 


In the first story Pol Col Naren Khreuangsanuk sent in his officers to the Moo 10, Nong Prue area of Pattaya yesterday where they saw a foreigner acting suspiciously.


They named him as Al Cha Beebee S. Nasser Calfan Hamed. 


When they had successfully keyed his name into the machine in the BMW it was determined that he was on overstay of seven days. 


Job done, the Omani was handed over to the local police for processing.


Meanwhile, in Nonthaburi north west of Bangkok, the chief of immigration Pol Col Thanongsak Jailuang had received information on Thursday about illegal goings on at an Indian restaurant in Soi Samakhee 29. 


The BMW was rolled out and sent to the restaurant on Friday where Somen Mondal, 22, was found on overstay of 806 days and Giresh, 32, had outstayed his welcome by 152 days. 


They didn't have work permits either and were charged with working illegally or doing work outside the remit to which they would be allowed to work.


They were handed over to the Pak Kret police. 


Both stories featured identical paragraphs in which the two chiefs were quoted as "revealing" that they were acting on the orders of immigration chief Lt-Gen Sompong Chingduang to clean up Thailand from the activities of illegal foreigners. 


Both stories similarly advised the public to call 1178 if they had anything or anyone to report.

A motorcycle and a tablet would have done the same job, but a helluva lot cheaper,but where's the kickbacks in that I ask you. 🙂

You stick a computer and a WIFI hub in a 1973 Datsun 1200, and it will do the same job.   Trying to rationalize BMW's so you can buy more is so transparent.   Should have gone with

What would justify this being labeled a smart car would be a revolving Falangometer on the roof that slowly scanned in a 360 degree circle searching for miscreants. If it homed in on one it should emi

One has to wonder if a Toyota and a lap top could become a smart car?


The ANPR system in UK police cars would seem to be a lot smarter than this dumb but very expensive car.
