It's a pity they say Australian citizens, definitely not originally from Australia.

Who are, except the Aborigines? ;)

If you knew a little about history, you would know that Australia wasnt called Australia until the first white man got there, . So to state that only aboriginies are original Aussies is rubbish and not factual.

I don't understan why they ot off so lightly, not only are these underlings giving bad names to Australians, but also in the process to people carrying Arab names, immigrants and refugees to Australia AS WELL as Phuket itself as adding to the crime stats regardless, not to mention adding to the list of bad headlines relating to Phuket and eventually Thailand.

In other countries they would have been fined much more severely, I wonder how much of their cash stash ended up in the pockets of the investigating officers of the Police...

Unfortunately it would be nearly impossible to convict them for attempt to fraud, they can at any point claim confusion and lack of equality to police and that they accepted their fine off pure fear of more lack of justice, I dont think the Australian justice system holds massive respect for the Thai justice system...

maybe the Australian government knows the answer: http://www.immi.gov.au/media/fact-sheets/04fifty.htm

Early migration waves

The date of the first human occupation in Australia remains unknown but evidence exists that humans have been on the continent for at least 40 000 years. Consequently, the Aboriginal people are regarded as the Indigenous people of Australia.......

.....The migration program has reflected economic or social conditions in Australia and elsewhere. For example:

During the 1840s a large number of Irish immigrants came to Australia to escape famine in their homeland.

From the 1860s to the late nineteenth century, labourers from Melanesia were recruited to work on Queensland plantations.

From the 1860s to the 1920s concerns about population imbalance resulted in deliberate efforts to attract women to Australia.

During the second half of the nineteenth century, Afghani, Pakistani and Turkish camel handlers played an important part in opening up the continent's interior, facilitating the construction of telegraph and railway lines...

you can change a countries name but not its origins

Understandable but the evidence of them filing an insurance claim and then the officers finding everything in there room is pretty water tight wouldn't you say?

The justice system has nothing to do with it really here in Thailand,they committed a fraudulent claim which was recognized by the Thai police quite easily.I am sure they will be brought to book in Aus.

Fraud against travel insurance companies is very high, and that's reflected in the premiums.

During my flying career, flight attendants were notorious for scamming their travel insurance company to 'subsidize their holidays', and they bragged about it.

Come on, you know what he means. Just because some men decided to change the name of the country doesn't mean the people who lived there before were not there originally.
