The offense is that we checked our buildings firefighting equipment. We knew that it was not working. So we are accused now of checking the fire equipment without permission from the management. They

How unbelievably petty. Management would be hanging their heads in shame, if they have one iota of pride, self esteem, decency or manhood. They simply lost face, and behaved like juvenile delinquents.

So in the meantime you 2 guys decided to sort it. Brilliant choice of action. Not! Would love condo side of what occurred. Interesting you in your second post casually dismissive of possible

The passport of a friend is withheld by court. Me and a friend are accused of a minor Offense. In the worst case scenario we would need to pay 30,000 Baht in damages and about 5000 baht as a fine , so not really something to worry about. But my friend is in Thailand and I am not. And the judge wouldn't want to separate the case so it is always postponed until I get back into Thailand which I do not have a plan for the next two or three months if not really necessary.

Even then (if I get back to Thailand) it would need up to another year to get through with all court hearings…

So they took my friend's passport and it is with the court now…

What is this 'minor' offence? If it is truly minor , they wouldn't have taken his passport away.

Here a picture of the inspector who was in the building who has my highest respect. The management could not fool around with him, he did not accept any excuses. He was very well educated with a broad knowledge about what he did. He knew all details about dangers and what should be and what should not be.

 

If there is some danger for the life either of my family or the people I rent apartments out too I take action. I'm not the one sitting still. I understand and accept that most people don't care. But I know most would complain a lot if in case of an incident people would suffer or be harmed. I do not want to belong to the group who complains when it is too late. In this particular building four Co owners signed complaints to the government, three of them foreigners. Unfortunately 99.9% of the Thai co owners did not want to take any action.

The photo was done during and unannounced visit. (See the missing firehose? They knew that a management that bad (we showed them pictures) would try to hide things if they would announce their coming. Anyway after he left the management accused us to bring in an illegal person to the building. They went to the police, they thought that now we certainly would go to prison for making things up. They really looked very very bad when they had to find out that he was a real government inspector. Even worse, this inspector came back again with one of his superiors to make sure the management would understand that this is no joke.

The management stated during an annual general meeting that everything would be fine , that every single fire cabinet is in perfect shape , ready to fight a fire. Despite the fact that everyone could see by themselves  such a fire cabinet without a hose the majority of the people joining the annual general meeting believed the management.

Seriously petty and vindictive behaviour by the management against their own co-owners. I assume this isn't one of the big condo projects you see in Bangkok.

If I understand it correctly you said you were involved in the incident and went to court at least initially. You also said your not in Thailand right now.  Why did the court only take your friends passport so he can not leave but they didn't take yours and you left the country. Something isn't adding up here about that part of the story.
