Thai immigration chief Lt-Gen Sompong Chingduang briefed the press on the arrest of a Chinese national who bought a job lot of surgical masks from a factory near Bangkok airport and advertised them for sale at inflated prices.

 

Wang Hao was the subject of an immigration sting operation in Bang Plee, Samut Prakan.

 

He had 37,600 surgical masks in his possession.

 

He had offered them for sale in lots of 10,000 up with each one costing 15 baht.

 

Trading standards officers deemed that his activity was illegal especially given the current situation with the coronavirus outbreak.

 

The suspect said that he got the masks from a factory in King Kaew.

 

Chief Sompong said that the suspect was proving helpful and he was unable to give further details at this time.

It may have done if it was illegal but it isn't, selling masks at inflated prices is.

This morning just around dawn was at the street stalls as the monks were standing praying, the coffee stall opening and the bbq-ed pork heavily smoking some lady on the floor with plaid and 3m mask and imported Chinese 3m masks.

The masks ? Priced at 250thb it was.

 

Even at double pricing still ridiculous.

The world should take China country to ICC( international criminal court) and charge them with world public endangerment. Just like Europe did after WWI(Treaty of Versailles) Germany paid big price in land and gold for starting WWI.  This virus is no different than starting a war.

Penalty:  Elimination of all trade deficit with China : THIS IS WHAT WILL TEACH THEM A LESSON.

They took Tibet, East Turkmenistan started SARS and free world did NOTHING !!.  

PRC has no respect for anything that free world stands for!!!!  

Excellent

Karma for me for not exaggerating this ridiculous practice or calling any hotter then hot line or even going the useless way reporting at the police station.

This evening at the market the opposite way from my home I got masks and even better one. Priced at 10, 15, 30 and 40. Bought a few for myself and my family here.
