European with Zimmer frame arrested by Chonburi police on overstay

Recommended Posts

Probably the best outcome for him. Probably doesn't have the 800k and unlikely to have health insurance 

Back home under his social security umbrella is the best result and thais won't have to pick up his medical bill when he deteriorates

85 days overstay for this guy. He must be spending at least 1200 baht a day on accommodation, food, drinks, transport, medicines, doctors/hospital visits etc - that's 102,000 baht that Thailand is better off.

Yet another example of how little the Thai "government" cares for it's people! for sure this guy was spending money, none of it was filling their coffers though, they simply don't care that "others" were making a living from his spending.

Oh, thank you, immigration. Maybe you can find some foreign overstayers in wheelchairs or with even more crippling diseases and take their pictures for all to see. It will really make us public feel safe.  

?what part of "illegally in country" do you not understand?

i definitely feel safer here than my home country where illegals wander the streets committing crimes 24/7. read the news of any so called first world country which relates to probably over 90% of TV readers.

literally all my farang friends are long term living here because thailand offers a better living environment, myself included.

Of course you feel safer here. There are fewer foreigners on overstay walking around with zimmer frames. Everyone knows this type of criminal is the most dangerous.

No mention of the BMW smart car? I guess they give the car an occasional day off.

I agree with the rest of the Zimmer frame apologist 

 

IO Should write in his passport.. Falang wit Zimmer frame no need visa can overstay long as he want and when hab stroke and heart attack thai people pay hospital... 

 

There you go all sorted! 

Thai people pay for what ?  My bird in ten years never even bought me a drink, even when i gave her the money........ It's just not in them.......  mind you her mate once bought me a drink, but that's because she was seeing the end of our marriage and she was just casting her bread on the water so to speak........ Tidy bit as well..... Next !

It's been a while since an arrest of a REAL foreign criminal has been reported. Too busy hunting for those petty offenders?

This <deleted> affects morale in the expat community even if your papers are all in order. It creates a climate of not feeling welcome, that the government is looking for opportunities to kick people out of the country, and creates a climate of distrust and paranoia.

 

Many people on retirement visas are getting up there in age. People forget, people get sick, all the paperwork for 90 day reports, TM-30's, bank statements, visa renewals, trips to immigration become more burdensome the older you get. It is stressful to think that if you had a medical or personal emergency or condition that prevented you from fulfilling every last immigration requirement you could be summarily kicked out of the country no matter how long you have lived here or how long you have been in full compliance.

 

The Thai authorities seem to think that there is no connection between expat community morale and the desire for tourists to visit Thailand, when in today's interconnected world there's a close correlation. The covid-19 virus has decimated Thailand's tourism industry and a global economic slowdown is almost certainly looming on the horizon, and immigration is arresting elderly over stayers like there are an endless supply of tourists dying to take their place.

 

I think Western tourism to Thailand has been permanently damaged by the current government. The government has not only killed the tropical retirement dream which drove a great deal of Western tourism, but they have also committed the unforgivable sin of treating Westerners as if they were less desirable guests in the kingdom because they didn't spend as much as visitors from other countries. People don't forget that sort of thing. This resentment is what lies behind so much of the otherwise inexplicable schadenfreude about Thailand's current tourism and economic woes expressed on social media.

They must be really proud of themselves well done chaps! Personally I would have opted out of the photo shoot.

An answer for their kids who ask what Daddy does on the police force.

 They could just visit my condo complex any day of the week and arrest dozens of illegal AirBnB stayers.

Why, are they all on overstay?
