I wouldn't say Thais are reckless, they tend to wreck more

Oh I dunno. Since the Covid restrictions they have been reckless.

With next to zero outbound flights, and Thailands 2 billion biometric system, the 'offender' was not a flight risk. 

Sending out a contingent to arrest him, seems way over the top.

 

'charges of "driving negligently causing Others have suffered physical or mental harm, serious injury and damage to property of others'

 

Not clear if it was only hit & run vehicle damage, or more. Was this on public road, or in a mall parking area with slow moving cars? Physical harm would be minor then.

As usual, important info missing.

We do not know anything about the case, what has he done wrong ?

 

If he drive with his head under his arms he should go back to Belgium asap, we forreigners are guests in Thailand and must show good behavior to get respect from the local people.

 

Funny that immigration police now is traffic police, maybe they can do better jobs on the roads with their fast BMW cars. Every day I see thai people driving drunk or without any knowledge to trafic rules, many thai drivers is very dangerous drivers, but that is ok ? There is a lot of jobs for the im police, with better meaning, to do on the roads.

At this rate, there will be no Thais driving in the year 2525 AD! There is a song about that, btw.

He is said to have driven negligently causing injury and damage. The warrant was issued by the Hua Hin court on January 28th 2020.

 

Sutthipong told Naew Na this was all part of immigration chief  Lt-Gen Sompong Chingduang's policy to rid Thailand of law breaking foreigners.

 

They urged the public to call 1178 to report illegal activity.

 

 

Why did it take so long to track him down? Also, no details of the actual alleged incident. Suspect "hit and run" for which a payment at the time would probably have avoided his arrest.

 

How about a call number (or FB/Line account) for foreigners to report all the illegal activity of Thais? In the name of satefy of course - sounds fair no?

If that is true then it is a good thing he got caught!!

For the posters who think that Thai people do not get arrested for the same offence,get of your

high horse!!!

Yes no matter what department a Royal Thai Police Officer works for they all have power to arrest,they are police!!

To look at this case and say it is discrimination is totally of the wall.

Thais wouldn’t do a thing like that.
