The coffin must be solid steel by now with all the accumulated nails so its totally bullet proof.

TASS has the story but I don't think the Russian Government mouthpiece is compulsory reading these days.

She hasn't received any penalty yet, she has to appear in court first for that to happen.

 

You are right.

but prohibiting her from leaving "lawful" Thailand (this way making her lose a lot of money), making her a hard time, put her in prison for two nights... What is this?

may be not a penalty but a punishmenjt or better harassing and torturing. She deservse compensation money more than those incredibly wrong 100.000 Baht.

 

pettifogger.

However, she could not raise the required amount of 100,000 baht, so she had to stay in the holding cell at the police station for two nights,”

 

So she didnt pay 100k then , just 2 nights in a cell and she's free to go back to Russia and tell the story .

No she was jailed for 2 nights while (presumably) her friends or family raised the bailout money.

Not what I think , she was released after 2 days according to the article because she had no money . She had no money like most Russian tourists with a low income , they travel here on cheap planes from Eastern Russia.

She was released because a friend paid the bail.

She can't leave until the case is finished. Passport is held by the court.

While I am about it, not all Russians are on a low budget. Nor are all Indians, Iranians etc.

Did you know you can't feed fish? Do you have 100,000 cash in your pocket when you are at the beach?

I feel sorry for the poor woman. She thought she was doing something good, then a nightmare arrives.

Totally avoidable situation. Just some stupid official reading the riot act, when a simple, "Please don't do that." would have solved the situation.

I donm't see a poor/wealthy foreigner as the issue. I see a "Jobsworth" as the problem.

Prosecutions happen for polluting do they? Can you give us some examples? Here in Thailand please? I would love to see these.

Maybe if the regular prosecutions you believe are happening are revealed, it might encourage others to clean up their act. And their waterways.

Yes, there have been instances of prosecutions for polluting, do your own searches.   I didn't say that there were regular prosecutions, you said that, but then the fish-feeding offence isn't something that is regularly prosecuted either.
