Naew Na reported the continued actions of Thai immigration – this time in Koh Samui and Pattaya – in cracking down on home owners and hotels not reporting foreigners at their addresses within 24 hours of their arrivals.
The media stories feature long lists of those officers responsible for the operations but very little else. The story from Surat Thani is first:
On Monday under the command of Pol Col Suparik Phankoson, chief of Surat Thani immigration and Pol Col (female) Kritika Khamsarirak, a deputy of Surat Thani immigration, along with a crime suppression team led by Pol Capt TherdsakThawatrawakun with deputy Pol Capt Arun Musikim in conjunction with Senior Police Sergeant Thammanoon Phaenoi, Sen Pol Sgt Phitsak Janthakomut and Sen Pol Sgt Pankit Rachu went to a house in Moo 1, Bo Phut, Koh Samui where they fined a foreigner under Article 38 (1979) legislation related to not reporting the whereabouts of a foreigner at an address within 24 hours of their arrival.
Neither the name of the foreigner nor the amount of the fine was reported though it is usually between 1,600 baht and 2,000 baht, notes Thaivisa.
Unexplained was the picture of a foreign man holding a citation with the words “thank you” partly concealing his face.
Meanwhile in the Pattaya area Naew Na also reported during a 10 am to 5 pm crime sweep conducted by Chonburi immigration two police captains and three senior police sergeants (all of whom were named) went to a guest house in Soi Welcome Town, Moo 12 Nong Prue, Banglamung.
At the guest house they examined the guest register and found that it was in contravention of the regulations about reporting foreigners within 24 hours.
The manager was fined. Neither their name nor the amount of the fine were mentioned.
A picture of a person with blond hair was seen being processed at a desk with an officer.
In the last few months Naew Na has reported dozens of such cases, notes Thaivisa.Facebook.
