Wow I thought that a 5 year ban would only be done if you had overstayed a lot more then 103 days. I guess I was wrong.

Ha. That's because they had to chase her riding that horse. They resented the effort required to nab her. She did not have the courtesy to surrender herself at the local office.

According to the rules, overstay less than one year and apprehended means a 5 year ban. If she would have given herself up it would have been a 1 year ban.

Stevenl, that must have been my mistake. I thought about the overstay if you give yourself up. I confused the 2.

Quote - A French woman was deported out of country yesterday after we found her while she was riding a horse at 7:30pm on Dec 21.

 

7.30 at night, immigration police are working in Phuket. After looking through Cathy's facebook page with list of influencial figures from phuket as friends of hers. I would suggest that maybe she has rubbed someone the wrong way.

 

I've heard many rumours whilst being over here that if you peev off the wrong person this very thing can happen. Oh and by the way this works both ways. If you help the right person a mistake can be overlooked.

  That is a common human trait and it happens everywhere, not just in Thailand .

If you upset someone, they may take retribution

Rules are rules. Furthermore, I think they will get tighter in future. Stay within the Law or face the consequences.

If they ban thousands it will have zero impact on the Thai economy, nada, none!
