Thailand in curfew: Thousands checked and 1,186 face prosecution for being out

Thai media Naew Na published a story that featured some of the main curfew breakers of the first three days who had violated orders to stay home between 10 pm and 4 am. 

 

They quoted spokesman Lt-Gen Piya Uthayo as saying that 17,755 officers had been mobilized at 923 checkpoints nationwide to enforce the curfew. 

 

Some 22,675 people and 16,841 vehicles were checked. Many people were coming out with excuses as to why they were out. When pressed their stories fell flat. 

 

Many were let go with warnings but the police were prosecuting 1,186 people.

 

Plenty of those arrested were drinkers organizing parties, gamblers or people doing drugs. 

 

Among the stories was the Bodega Hotel on Samui where three people were arrested after a party was organized for foreign guests. This was reported earlier by Thaivisa

 

In Chiang Mai 58 young people were stopped for ignoring the curfew. 

 

In Chiang Rai four teens - some as young as 14 - were caught being out with ganja in their possession. 

 

In Nakhon Phanom 26 people were caught sneaking across the border into Thailand. They were given 15 day jail terms and will be deported after serving time.

That's actually a lot more than the immigration's 1.900 thb fee pr. foreigner.

 

Some BiB will have a "Golden Time" collecting this

Do these people actually realise what risk they are taking in breaking the curfew, like a £1000 fine is no laughing matter, even if I was in the UK.

Or, do they really think they can flaunt the law without consequences.

Surely nobody can be that stupid.

Well what can you expect, when most people here believe laws are only to be obeyed by others.

The me, me, me attitude is pathetic, and dangerous, make all curfew breakers work unpaid in hospitals, helping people with the virus. 

People seem to have the same me me attitude everywhere, Colin. My homeland UK, Australia, USA, European countries, all have their share of such arrogant morons. And if they catch it, no doubt they will want to blame it on someone else, and not their own stupidity.

Disgusting, isn't it?

They have little respect for the normal law, an emergency decree is treated with the same contempt.
