HIV-scare man resurfaces

Hans-Otto Schiemann, 56

CHAIYAPHUM: -- A German man at the centre of a mass HIV scare last year has showed up at a local market, upsetting many residents, police said yesterday.

Former-soldier Hans-Otto Schiemann, 56, was earlier accused of spreading HIV by paying up to 400 women and girls in the province to have unprotected sex, allegedly out of spite after contracting the virus from a 17-year-old Thai girl.

He has been married to a Thai for five years and his wife has said she is dying of Aids. He was sentenced to 58 days in jail and was deported last November for overstaying his visa since 2001.

Early this week, villagers told police they saw the man at a local market, said Lt-Colonel Khampol Nonuch of Muang Chaiyaphum police station. "We know he's back but we don't know what to do with him because the provincial court punished and deported him last year for overstaying his visa," he said.

Aids campaigner Sommart Troy said letting Schiemann back into Thailand was unacceptable. "This man deliberately transmits HIV to others. How can you let him come back to Thailand?" Sommart said.

Nakhon Ratchasima tourism police Major Thanomsak Inthrabutr said police had proposed he be made persona non grata. However, Pol Colonel Sutthipong Wongpin, superintendent of the Immigration Police, said he had merely overstayed his visa and was not banned from entering the Kingdom.

Why hasn't he been banned from entering Thailand? He is not the "quality" farrang we want around!!!!!!!!!!

Do have to spell it out for you all; it's a bulls.hit story. :o

He was their whipping boy; they got something out of it. And now he's back.

They just didn't figure that anyone would bother reporting the guy after he he was back on the scene.

They're Thais for Chrissakes; stringing people up isnt't rocket science to them.

Doing it successfully is. :D

PS. People can be banned from Thailand no problem; read between the lines.

that's certainly not plausible... as well-known his case is... and ESPECIALLY since he chose to return to the same area. Not the brightest individual...

we undoubtedly haven't heard the last of this case...

With all respect to due process and the rule of law, sometimes vigilanteeism is needed. Round up the possee, boys, and string him up high.

I read this and I wonder why I worry about getting all my company and Visa paperwork in order on the dot every single month / year so that my status in Thailand is 100% legal and I pay my dues to society here.... I don't begrudge this at all and it is a good feeling to be a "legal alien", hoping to get residency at some point in the future...

But when I read stories like this it appears I could simply not pay taxes, get deported, pop back into the country any time.... Do the odd visa run when I feel like it.. Etc. Etc.

This kind of situation makes a mockery of all the attempts that we hear about to try and "...keep undesirables out of Thailand".

They should temporarily label him as a drug dealer and dish out some extra judicial justice!

If the Thai locals are that much up in arms about it, I think you'll find that he will "disappear" very soon. :o

And I also think that not many Police or Government officials will be too bothered by his disappearance too.

My comment was tongue in cheek.

The 'case' against him is bogus, ( at least to the extent that the 'facts' thus far have been (misrep/presented)).

That's why he's back. :o
