Top brass raids in Chantaburi on foreigners look like a PR exercise – no arrests at all

Raids conducted in Chantaburi in Thailand’s east were meant to flush out overstaying foreigners, drug dealers, human traffickers and other illegals such as people without work permits.

Instead they resulted in precisely zero arrests.

The foreigners – who appeared to be mostly dark skinned – were instead given some lectures on getting on with Thais and understanding the culture.

And hotels and other residential accommodation were warned about registering guests.

The raids were conducted Tuesday by local immigration with deputy national police spokesman Pol Col Kritsana Ratanacharoen at the head of affairs.

The Pol Col said that they were working on important government policy to stem the drug trade and stop illegal foreigners from engaging in crimes like drugs and human trafficking.

But not a single person they spoke to was doing anything wrong, reported INN.

So they handed out some handy cultural advice about Thais and reiterated about the regulations and customs.

Hotels, guest houses, mansions, flats and apartment complexes were reminded to register all guests and continue to report the whereabouts of foreigners.
