We will have the "human rights brigade"  on here soon suggesting that they "sue the Headman"

for demeaning unconstitutional demands.

These are disturbing times & I think it is socially responsible to at least comply with well meaning 

fairly lighthearted sort of punishment.

The "not law brigade, you cant make me do it" are in the wrong country & regrettably 

have this idea that they are better than anyone else..... Get over it

I’d be happy to dance a little, as opposed to paying a fine.

Im also in favor of stocks for thieves, violent offenders etc, generally criminals not respecting others human rights. Now they deserve zero dignity. 

They Cannot give you a Fine .There's No Law in Thailand that says that one Has to Wear a Mask outside. the only thing what they can do if one isn't wearing a mask is refusing one for Entering a Shop/building

The local Phu Yai Ban (responsible village leader) thinks this action - accompanied by a song of your choice - will stop negligence.

Time the head took early retirement !

I'd rather pay the fine thank you and walk away with my dignity and self-respect intact.

Meaning that wearing a mask on a motorcycle is LEGAL???????  That's what I said.

Public humiliation for not wearing a mask, implemented by the "head of the village", when there is no law stipulating that masks must be worn?

 

Thailand 4.0 😆

I don't know what orders have been issued in the province where this took place but in Prachuap we have to wear them.

 

Quote

The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) would like to provide an update on the latest orders issued by Prachuap Khiri Khan province on 3 April, 2020, to combat the spread of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), with immediate effect until further notice.

[...]

All residents must wear surgery or cloth masks when leaving their residence.

 The order has not been rescinded yet, as far as I know.

The union flag in the picture posted by Burma Bill is upside down.

 

Wearing a mask while riding a .motorbike is not illegal, so says Thaivisa. That means it is legal to wear one.

How about not wearing one, is that illegal or legal? Presumably the Poo Yai Ban of an insignificant village reckons it's illegal. Unlawfully stopping traffic, is an offence, surely? Summary punishment issued by this guy is questionable at the least. Could be classified as false arrest?
