I bet they didn't check to see he had diabetic medication or possibly even took it away from him...

Might be, but it can also be that they found out he was diabetic after he was dead. It is Sanook stating that it was known he suffered from diabetes, which might be something they digged up after. In

That wouldn’t surprise me... not that they knowingly threw him in a cell and left him to die, but that they ignored his requests to keep his medication out of ignorance and lack of empathy.

For a start it's called 'Duty of Care' something that is sadly lacking in Thailand even though they are supposed to be signed up to various Human Rights conventions.

 

That's why you have 40 to 60 prisoners to a cell in the prisons and all sorts of other abuses, wake up dude and stop being another apologist for this sadly lacking country. And yes, I have been to visit someone in jail here so I know the conditions.

Detention is not same as jail. Not very much read in, are you?

...his belongings taken away from him and never opened his mouth about any diabetes or a need for medication...

 

Seriously, do you think there was some serious attempt to ask him at all?

They can not guess he have diabetes. He have to tell them. Did he do that? That´s the big question.

I personally have to take medication everyday the main one is for my BP

I hazard a guess it was raised a few times here from a certain poster ?

 

It's sad to hear someone so young passed in detention of all places, that said, as much as I would love to point the finger, I have to keep it bent until we know more, although, there is no harm in speculating, although posting it can have a few curley replies elevating ones blood pressure, hence the reason I am staying neutral for now, only because a hell of a lot of other things bother me at times, so why add to them when there is not enough information, blood check, 120/80 perfect 🙂

Wow, just like you making up things to justify your narrative. I think many expats have a very good understanding about Thai immigration and how it works, many expats have visited Thai prisons to aid expats, there are many expats who know people who have fallen foul of immigration and every expat knows immigration due to their archaic 90 day reporting and annual applications for extention. Is it more or less likely they never gave him his medication? HELL YES. 

And you think they can guess he need medication. Did he ask to get it?

You really have no clue do you ? Plenty of people have started threads on here re: IDC and also the detention centre at Swampy, you are a sad case indeed.

Doesn´t matter how many threads is started. You still do not have enough facts in this case to judge.

Anybody have some first hand accounts of that place?  All cells private or are they jam packed like I think I read the detention cells in Bangkok are?  Any CCTV monitoring of at least the hallway so one could see if anybody went into or out of a cell(s)?  Couldn't find a description or a location on any online airport map

AFAIK, (from my previous work as a police volunteer in Thailand for many years), medicines are not allowed for prisoners, even if you inform the prison authorities that you are on medication and will die without it etc.

 

That certainly was my experience with several prisoners, (they didn't die, but their heart/diabetes medication was confiscated).

 

I'm happy to be corrected on this 🙂

good to hear from somebody who actually has first hand experience - and what you said certainly renders many other posts invalid

Matzzon... Do you really have enough facts to defend?

Where have I been defending. The only thing I´ve done is posting about another possibility. Please point out where I am defending anything?

OK, fair enough... If I’m not mistaken, the other possibility you have pointed out is the possibility that 'the Deceased, a diabetic did not announce to the IDC staff that he was diabetic and needed medication’...

 

A viable argument, he may not have. 

 

An equally, perhaps more viable argument, he may have, but you’ve put that argument down because you seem to be of the opinion that the IDC guards value human life and respect the medical needs of detainees, which is somewhat of an overly optimistic opinion given what we know of the IDC.

Totally irrelevant Mr Sticky! We are not talking about Klongprem here. However, just go on and don´t let me disturb you.

 

It's not totally irrelevant as the article highlights prevalence of human rights violations in the Thai prison system, it doesn’t take much to draw parallels to the IDC. Additionally so the are numerous reports / first hand tales of the Thai IDC being worse than the Thai Prison system.

The place is a living cesspit of humanity mainly occupied by African internees who have no money and or access to embassy help.

It is run by private security contractors and not the government, nor from my experience does it have any government oversight🤬😡

As a previous poster alluded to “gave him a meal” – absolute <deleted> as you have to pay for your board and meals are not included unless you have money from which they purchased from the food stores located within the airports.

The corruption and conditions in there are only fit for animals that you dislike in the extreme.

Corrupt guards and compliant airlines such as Thai airlines are part and parcel of this disgusting mess.

If you have no money, you will not be able to access phone calls/Internet, food becomes a problem for something edible and there is a severe lack of embassy access if you are from a country with no empathy representation.

 

They should be an Independent audit into this absolutely disgusting representation of Thailand’s way of handling immigration problems within privately run airport jails😳🤷‍♂️🤬😡🙏🇹🇭

 

The women’s and men’s section are also open and accessible to each other – <deleted> – pretty bloody scary place to be😳🤷‍♂️😡🤬🙏🇹🇭

 

You are describing the IDC (correctly by all accounts)

 

But that is not where this happened.

 

Nor did it happen at a jail.

 

It happened in the detention room at Swampy airport.  From prior reports here,  large room with some bunk beds, food is provided (but there is a charge) and can also pay the guards to go get you things from airport shops. People are allowed to have their phones in there. I would assume, but do not know for sure, that they would also have their wallets/purses and possibly their carry on bags as well, this is a place people who have been refused entry are kept until they have a flight out. People have complained it is nto very clean but nothing I have ever heard makes it sound like prison conditions and certainly not like IDC (which is worse than any prison).

 

I have not previously heard of someone being taken there as part if a deportation before. Usually kept at IDC and then start to the airport and onto a flight.

 

There is no information whatsoever as to cause of death so no basis for speculating anything yet.  People do not die of diabetes in a night unless having a hypoglycemic reaction which would be likely only if insulin taken and then no food. There is no reason to think this applies, but then we really do not know.

No, I do not think IDC guards are good caretakers. The only thing in my initial post was that it may have been a reason.

That is not a fact. What is a fact is that Klongprem is one of the worlds biggest hell holes.
