Chinaman gets stung by the "smart car" after operating illegal bee business!

Naew Na reported that Phetchabun immigration's "wonderful" BMW "smart car" had resulted in the arrest of a Chinese man running an illegal honey making business and three Thais for not reporting foreigners at their addresses. 

 

They said all this was done in one single day!

The media said that Division 5 officers of the Immigration Bureau teamed up with labor department officials. It was all part of keeping Thais, foreigners and tourists safe in the lead up to Chinese New Year.

 

The IB were in the BMW that was fitted with state of the art technology consisting of a tablet and a notebook.

Not just that, this smart car was linked to the IB database with all its information regarding the entry of foreigners into the kingdom, reasons for stay and the like. 

 

First port of call was Wang Pong sub-district where they found Liu Haifeng, 39.

 

Lui had told immigration when he entered Thailand originally that he was studying. Then he changed his reason for being in Thailand as practicing dharma.

In reality he was practicing the art of beekeeping. He was supplying honey to a factory in Chonburi. 

 

He was pictured pointing at his hives and booked with working without a work permit. 

 

Also fined were three Thais who had failed to report foreigners staying at their addresses within the stipulated 24 hour period.

Naew Na said that you could be fined 2,000 to 10,000 baht for this. (The higher rate of fine is usually reserved for hotels, notes Thaivisa).

 

They encouraged people to continue phoning 1178 to report infractions. 

 

Naew Na referred to the smart car as "jeng" (wonderful) in their headline.

This type of small business benefits Thailand's nature and I am sure Thais will learn this art and be able to run this type of business as well if they worked with him for some time.

 

On a side note, I think some people find the word 'Chinaman' offensive. Not sure exactly why other than it has something to do with the past colonial influence?

I'm Chinese American,  Yes it could be offensive here in Thailand I turn my head ( more on my list of things ) because it is ignorance and racist but of course Thais wouldn't understand or believe it?

This is Thai VISA writing Chinaman in it's headline. So no need to blame it on Thais. This put up by foreigners working there.

Did they car read him his rights?  Might be a good idea to have the car head up a task force to find the red bull kid

Why does BMW get all the credit? This could work in any vehicle.

I get it now, IOs need the elbow room, ... and the prestige from an expensive brand, can't get that from a tuk-tuk.

Same as the Korean man that IO's referred to as Mr Kimchi. They dont care what they say about aliens.

BMW is a smart car which compensates for the IO users.
