CHIANG MAI: -- A Thai motorist was puzzled when he was accused of being an Uber driver just because he gave a ride to two foreign friends in Chiang Mai.

 

A Thai man, only identified as Parinya, sought help from netizens on a Chiang Mai web forum after a ticket was sent to his home — for the charge of using a private vehicle to provide public transport

.

Attached to the ticket was a photograph of his two foreign friends retrieving their suitcases from the trunk of his car.

I think the lesson here is, don't help our foreigners, friends or not.  I will make sure my wife doesn't drive with me in the car.

Wow, that's it? Drive foreigners around and you're guilty of being an Uber driver. He should sue them for defamation.

They hate any competition. That is why they are third world and always will be.

So he needs to prove that he is innocent..?

Of course! The other way around would create chaos to the local "judiciary system".

'The letter, dated March 2, states that Parinya must pay a fine of THB2,000, and if he’s innocent, he must report to the Chiang Mai Provincial Land Transport Office.''

 

Yes he must provide evidence he is not an Uber driver.  All based on an anonymous photograph.

How about a foreigner driver picking up foreigner friends in a car? Someone renting car and picking up foreigners? Seems like country missing a 0 in front with their 4.0 vision.

Things are definitely getting out of hands here... 

This way of justice was very popular in Nazi Germany and fascist Italy...

Definitely scaring.
