Belgian man arrested in Pattaya on extortion charges

CHON BURI:-- Immigration police here have arrested a Belgian man for having allegedly extorted money from his fellow Belgians by deceiving them that he is a police officer and advisor to the Belgian ambassador.

Pol Col Athiswis Kamolrat, commander of the Chon Buri Immigration Police, held a press conference Thursday to announce the arrest of Jacobs Marc R.

Athiswis said the immigration police were asked by the Belgian Embassy in Bangkok to help make the arrest after several Belgian tourists filed complaints with the embassy that they were extorted out of money by Marc.

Athiwis said Marc was arrested at his rented room in Bang Lamung district.

Better the farang extort farangs.

Anyway, the Belgian guy probably learned how to extort by looking at his government. That's how it works in Belgium. Fraud and extortion is happening at political level every single day. And even these ministers get re-voted by it's own citizens!

I totally agree. How dare some Farang try to extort money from their own citizens when the Thai's have this franchise ?<br>Its somewhat deplorable. I for one realise this is home ground and should not be encroached upon. Probably now be inundated with smart ass tossers replying to my honest reply ??<br><br><br>

<br>He should have given his commission,  then he would be free to do his extorting<br>
