This is very hard to believe. So Thais are now supposed to report if they see any farang 'wandering around'? And then the IO will send the batmobile to investigate? Nonsense.

This is Thailand now. Coming soon to your village / city.

I wonder why the Thais know that the foreigners have no proper visa and extension. 

They don't. See post #47

The media said that Region 4 immigration had received a tip that a foreigner was wandering about in the Khanun area of Sisaket, though the informant did not know the man's actual address.

 

I'd have thought that it's Khun Han district and a foreigner has reported him. If so, shame on this foreigner. Ditch the snitch. 

No, it's Khanun, the epicenter of rustic yokelry.

 

Are there some nasty, farang snitch types in Khun Han then?

The so called "smart car" is not a waste of money It can catch kangeroos on the run.

 

They should sell it to farmers in the Northern territory In Australia, where the kangeroos are considered real pests.

Doesn't even need a 'roo bar here tho'.

Hmm... I suspect that xenophobia disguised as immigration is alive and well. This is reflected in falling tourist numbers of course. TIT

Well, good investment in buying those BMWs in order to catch an old man who tries to have a quiet life in a rural area. 

However someone envy him who is happy now to see this evil subject being deported?? 

Is this what Thainess means? 😶

Wow, you're not allowed to take a private or company pension before you're 67 if you're an Aussie? That's harsh if true.

The Australian state pension (old age pension) is not really a pension, it is welfare that you need to qualify for. You don't have to have worked at all, just have 10+ years of permanent residence and be poor enough to jump over the thresholds. Of course as it is welfare the government tries to squeeze it all the time, the current qualifying age depends when you were born, and soon it will be 67 for everyone. There were talks to lift it to 70 but no agreement on that yet.

 

The private pension access starts from 55, and goes to 60 depending on the year you are born. Most people start accessing them after 60 as from there on they are tax free.

A vinyl board had a heading indicating that the suspect was a "hiding kangeroo" and INN referred to the arrested man as "from the land of kangeroos" in their headline.

wow.

 

think about the "outrage" on social media if a western newspaper or police department publicized the arrest of a thai referring to him as a well-known local animal.
