But there is no corruption in the BIB ranks, just 'misunderstandings'

I simply don't get it. Robbed, unrobbed, robbed, unrobbed, unhappy, happy. I give up.

is this the same as getting scammed by the scammer ... ?? and then unscammed by the scammer ... ?? blink.png

One question: how long the officers were suspended? For a day or two? Or got a new job at Khao San Rd? Or Pattaya walking street?

are ecigs illegal in thailand?

Technically yes. Sale has been prohibited for some time but many of my friends use them and seem to have no trouble getting the liquids etc.

I suspect that, in this case, the officers were using the possession of the kit as an excuse to buy some tea.

The funny thing is that I bought a vaping (e-cigarette) kit in Bangkok years before they became available in Western countries. So they must have made them illegal since then. Why? Because of the tobacco lobby?

Is this part of the same warped world-view that sees playing bridge is the worst form of gambling? Don't they know that vaping is often recommended as a way of at least alleviating the craving for nicotine without having to endure the tar and other bad chemicals in cigarette smoke? Some medics recumbent vaping as a way of getting off cigarettes for good.

Songkhla police commander Krissakorn Plithanyawong apologizing to the Malaysian tourists on Friday at Sadao Police Station.

SONGKHLA — Two police officers in the border province of Songkhla are facing criminal charges for allegedly forcing a pair of Malaysian tourists to pay 20,000 baht for a bogus offense.

Lt.Cpt. Phuwanart Noampan, 37, and Sen.Sgt.Maj. Hanchet Madadam, 41, are also suspended from the police force until the court reaches its verdict, the commander of Songkhla police Krissakorn Plithanyawong told reporters on Friday.

“We will be fair to all sides involved,” said Maj.Gen. Krissakorn. “For the moment, we have suspended the two officers.”

Isn't extortion a criminal offence? Why are these cops only suspended, and not charged as criminals?

Oh thank you for scamming me and being honest in your corruption. Here please accept what you scammed me of for being so ethical and honest members of the police.

Where else on earth would the police be rewarded for being so corrupt and unethical

E cigs are readily available on the net... Or at central, if you live in Phuket.

That said, I believe that the use of these products is still illegal, because authorities have yet to complete studies proving that e cigs are non carcinogenic, so therefore, to avoid future tobacco type lawsuits, the governments, worldwide, have yet to approve them (e-cigs) for use.... Read... Arse covering.

Never heard of anyone being stopped or fined for having one, before, but I have noticed that air stewardesses are now including them in their pre flight speech ( non use on board).

And... IMHO... These cops need suspending, investigating, charging, prosecuting and imprisoning for extortion ( by a person in a position of trust/ power)

The cops searched the Malyaysians.

Did they have a court warrant?

Or can they do that whenever they like for no reason at all?

I am asking this because I want to be prepared for situations like that.

I am not sure that it would be easy and without danger for me if I just refused them to search me or my car.

Anybody experience?

Would it help to show the cops a paper that informs them about my right to refuse their searching - and that I know about it?

Has anybody prepared something like this? Or any other helpful plan? would be greatly appreciated

So as a foriegner you can be fined 20,000THB for having an e-cigarette but if you're Thai and you kill 5 people and injure 27 recklessly driving a bus that isn't maintained you only get fined 2,000THB. OK Thailand I think I understand how it works now.......NOT
