German Ice Dealer In Bangkok Busted

A big German drug dealer is caught live with methamphetamine (ICE) after Thai police intercepted a large consignment of ICE being delivered to Nigerians. Investigations revealed that he bought from big Nigerian ice dealers and sold on to smaller ice dealers. This video reveals how German drug dealers lie and lie until they are cornered.

The German's bank account also revealed large regular transactions to big Nigerian drug dealers living in Bangkok suburbs leading to the arrests of many Nigerian dealers and Thai drug runners.

The German claimed to be running an Internet networking company and his Nigerian neighbors were arrested moments later running online lottery 419 scams. Interrogations revealed that a German gang of bikers in Bangkok and Pattaya are developing drug logistics and selling Ice that is often laced with heroin to stupid people.

Aussie Rugby Legend exposed as leader of Africa Scam Gang

Rare video showing an Australian scam victim ended up becoming the leader of a Thai/Nigerian/Liberian 419 Black dollar gang. The gang leader is a Sydney based millionaire Denis John Pittard who was an Aussie rugby legend living a life of the edge with a gang of African prostitutes who he trained to scam fellow Australians such as Robert Connolly of Australian Channel 9's famous 60 minutes classic episode called SCAMMED.

This video shows how the greed of some Australians leads them first to become scam victims and then either commit suicide, become beggars or as in this case become scamming kingpins of large West African Scam syndicates that also employ hordes of plump Asian hookers.

A resident of Koh Samui recently found himself locked up in jail after papers he thought were legal and correct and allowed him to run a backpacker resort were all properly valid. However they were not. Loren has shared his story on a Go Fund Me page – here is what it says.

Hi, I’m Loren, as most of you probably know. I’m a traveler and try to be open and honest always, and as a result I have the most incredible luck. I always say it’s not always good luck, but always incredible!

This week my incredible luck was incredibly bad. I’ve spent the last 2.5 years building up a backpacker hostel in Koh Samui, Thailand. We are a simple, cheap place, but we thrive on being good to EVERYONE around us. We take our customers in like family, take on backpackers as staff to be part of that family, and take everyone out each night to local businesses to grow the community around us and show everyone a great time for the cheapest price possible. While we’re not fancy, I’m very proud of the community we’ve created. It’s been a huge ordeal operating a foreign business, and after many terrible lawyers doing paperwork wrong, and many police and immigration officers showing me what was wrong and how to fix it, I thought we were finally all correct.

But 3 days ago, police showed up at my hostel and inspected my current paperwork that just 5 days ago I was reassured in person by my lawyer was 100% correct and valid for me to legally operate my hostel under that business license. The police disagreed. They said the papers, which are 100% in Thai, weren’t correct or valid, and that I’m operating without a license. I called my lawyer and told her the police said her papers are all wrong. Instead of racing over like a lawyer is supposed to when police are holding their client, she hung up on us, and turned off her phone.

I later discovered she was not a licensed lawyer and the documents are all invalid. She knew she was busted, so she ditched me. The police just want SOMEONE to pay for it, so they hauled me off to jail. They took my passport, they took the lawyer’s card so I didn’t have her info, and they told me I had no choice but to sign the papers explaining my charges in Thai, but once I did, I would go home. I signed, and they took me downstairs and put me in a jail cell with 3 other prisoners. I spent the night on the floor there, except when I was taken out for fingerprinting and documents.

They started mentioning fines and a lot of under-the-table bribes that first were supposed to get me out right away, but after I paid, they said it would be 8am, then 10am, then after court. I messaged my mom and she called the embassy, and advised I didn’t sign the false confession, written all in Thai. When I mentioned the embassy to the police, they tore up the papers and told me now I have to just sit in jail a month and wait for them. I later learned that in Thailand you can be held 91 days without being charged, while they build their case against you. They told me they wouldn’t even consider my case again for a month if I denied wrongdoing and went after the crooked lawyer.

I’ve built my adult life on being open and honest always, no matter what. And while I was calm and relaxed, not scared or panicking through the whole ordeal, tears streamed down my face as I sacrificed all my morals and ethics and signed the paper full of lies. The officers told me to relax, now I will be free soon, and I told them it wasn’t the police, or jail, or money or anything. I used google translate and put my phone on the table with just the phrase “Sacrificed my morals” written in Thai. From that point on I kept my head down and couldn’t look anyone in the eye, even my friends and loved ones that came to help.

The next morning, 8am turned to 10, to 11, when police came and put me in a car. This officer was kind and stopped to let me pee and get some water. He offered food, but I couldn’t eat. We went to an office that was labeled Attorney General, but we only sat in that room in silence for 30 minutes. Someone gave me 20 baht and told me to pray to Buddha and put it in a display where others had done the same. Then they said I was going to see the judge. We drove up a hill where my friends were diverted and I was taken to the back of the building. They took my phone led me to a hall to a door full of bars. I realized it wasn’t the courtroom.

They put me in an furniture-less room with 15 people in prison uniforms and leg shackles. And left me there for the rest of the day. At one point a lady came with papers for me to sign entering a guilty verdict. She was the first person to speak English to me. She reiterated that if I don’t sign, I would go back to jail for at least 15 days before I could take any action again. I signed and laid back on the bare floor for a few more hours. They finally called me name, took me into a hallway where they used a webcam to connect to a guy in an office who spoke all in Thai but apparently lowered my fine (because of all the bribes I was paying) and released me. They put me back in the cell and came to ask for more money. An hour later I was finally released and they drove me home and dropped me off, after a 1000 baht tip for “gas money”.

I’m extremely fortunate to have friends and loved ones that helped me through all this, and people that forwarded me large sums of money to get me out. But I’ve been forced to shut my business until I can redo all the papers my bogus lawyer did wrong. The police told me not to trust anyone, but to go to the mainland and do them all myself. In Thai. Somehow. So, I’m out a business, for now, and bankrupted and in debt to the people that fronted money to me. One Thai family liquidated 2 months’ salary to forward me everything they could. I’m determined to pay them back quickly.

I’ve been overwhelmed by the outpouring of support from people asking how to help, even phone calls to send extraction teams in. People suggested starting a GoFundMe campaign to try to raise the money to reopen the business and get back earning before the high season in December, so I can earn enough money to pay off all these loans. So… Here I am. Asking for any little help my incredible group of friends can offer me. I don’t have much to offer in return, but if you ever come to any of my hostels, of course you’ll always have a place to stay and a friend to show you local life!

Been getting a ton of conflicting information, but it seems a lot of this was caused completely by the police's illiteracy. My license is valid to run a guesthouse (which is condisdered small), not a "hotel" which is considered a large building/business/operation, and requires separate licenses. They police claimed I'm operating a hotel since my signs say hotel all over them. Except they don't. They say HOSTEL. So, the police misread it and put me in jail and took all my money.

To save face, they told me now that Hostels are illegal in Thailand and will all be shut down soon. They also said in Samui it's not permitted to use the word "hostel" on a sign. I sent them a dozen pictures of signs that say "hostel" just in my immediate neighborhood. Now I've been told if I change my name I can reopen almost immediately. But I've also been told that I'll just be busted again for the same thing if I do.

It looks like what's safest is to go to the mainland and start a new company, new business name, new everything from scratch on my own, with no lawyers or 3rd party Thai partners. Working only with myself, the government, and a trusted Thai friend/translator/partner.

I've been unbelievably overwhelmed by the response this campaign has gathered, and am in complete disbelief that so many of you were able and willing to contribute so much! I expected to earn maybe $200, but every penny counts in this situation. I'm a bit awkward about where to go now. We more than met our original goal, which was the costs of the money taken from me and a little to deal with my business being closed. I'm raising the goal now to help cover the costs of doing everything over from scratch, which seems the safest course, if I'm to stay in Samui. I'm humbled and grateful for everything contributed so far, and don't want to seem demanding asking for more. So please know that I don't expect anything more, but certainly appreciate any help anyone chooses to offer.

Just like the hostel itself, this next step would be 100% impossible on my own, but is rather a collection of incredible people - travelers, friends, and kind-hearted strangers - that built the hostel into what it is, and will now revive it into something even more amazing than before. Thank you all, in all sincerity and from the bottom of my heart.

ps. Some wording has been changed due to concerns of US laws, retribution from guilty parties, and some small media coverage even. I don't want anyone to be negatively affected by doing something kind and helping me.

Update 2

Just updated the page. Removed certain terminology at the suggestion of many, especially since this has (amazingly) received press attention now.. Nervous that police will seek retribution. But I've updated the story as well with yesterday's developments, so recheck the page to learn more.

Looks like I have to change the name to not include "hostel". So far, Backpacker Social Club has been most fitting, since our beds are a tiny part of what we really offer and why people love us. Would love your thoughts.

And, just to add some flavor and story to this post, here's a prison story:

After a few minutes in the holding cell with all the shackled prisoners, one of them hobbled over and asked for some of my big bottle of water. I shared and he thanked me, so I turned to the other 14 people in the room and offered to them too. They all looked apprehensive and shook their heads no. He said to me, "they won't drink after I do. They're scared because I have HIV, hahaha!" And then he limped away. Awkward.

Missing Israeli Found Buried Under Fresh Concrete
Eliyahu Cohen, at right, was found dead and buried under freshly laid concrete by authorities on Saturday in northwestern metro Bangkok.''

BANGKOK — Two Israeli men will be charged with premeditated murder after the body of a third was found buried under freshly poured concrete at a rental home in Nonthaburi, police said Sunday.

Eliyahu Cohen, a 63-year-old Israeli policeman, was found Saturday, three days after he had been reported missing, at a home in Bang Bua Thong district rented by Yaakov Shimon Sakira Bitton, 50, and his 17-year-old son, both Israeli.

Police Lt. Col. Pattapon Wajanasunthorn said that the crime suppression and metro police worked to find missing Cohen after he was reported missing Wednesday by a relative who had gone to the Israeli embassy for help.

Bitton owed money to Cohen, police said, and the last time they had met was at a restaurant in Khaosan Road prior to Cohen’s disappearance.

“We traced the dad suspect because he used his debit card at Big C Bang Yai, near Central WestGate,” Pattapon said. “Then we tracked the father-son pair and managed to bring the son in for questioning.”

That led them to Saturday’s grim discovery.

“The son confessed that he saw his dad kill Cohen at home, and then purchase materials to pour concrete over the body.” Pattapon said. From that officers obtained a search warrant for the Betans’ rental home in Nonthaburi, where Cohen’s body was found. An autopsy was being conducted.

Police Capt. Kanok Wangjaipho said Sunday that the two suspects were being held at the Bang Bua Thong police station, and both would be charged with first-degree murder.

Two Bolivians Nabbed With 5 Kilos Of Coke At Swampy

Two Bolivian drug smugglers were arrested on Friday as they transited through Suvarnabhumi airport carrying five kilos of cocaine.

Two suitcases, belonging to Nancy Caseres, 41, and Enrique Reque, 39, were x-rayed during their transfer from a flight originating in Ethiopia with the pair heading to Cambodia.

During a search of their luggage by customs officials, 2.6kgs of cocaine were found in Ms Caseres bag and a further 2.4kgs in the suitcase belonging to Mr Reque.

Investigators told reports the pair had boarded a flight in Sao Paulo, Brazil and travelled to Toga where they then to a flight to Ethiopia before landing in Thailand where they’d hoped to make a quick stop before flying to Siem Reap in Cambodia, their final destination.

The pair were detained pending further legal proceedings…. meaning, a lengthy stay in the monkey house.

Published on 24th January 2017 by Stickboy BKK

A 32-year-old Russian woman was arrested at Suvarnabhumi airport last Wednesday for attempting to smuggle cocaine into Thailand.

World’s most wanted man was arrested in Bangkok

In a dingy back-street bar in Bangkok, three men clinked their beer bottles in celebration. They looked like men you would cross the street to avoid – and rightly so.

The first was a short, stout SAS veteran with a shaved head who spent two decades flying food, weapons and soldiers across Africa in battered Second World War planes.

His drinking buddies were even scarier – a Guatemalan policeman turned drug dealer who smuggled 2,800 kilos of cocaine into Mexico and a Colombian rebel soldier who sold drugs for guns.

Abandoning their lives of crime, this terrifying trio became the real-life A-Team.

They had one goal. To arrest the world’s biggest arms dealer, Viktor Bout, who evaded and humiliated MI6 and the CIA for 10 years. And they had just succeeded.

Bout was a former Russian spy who built a £5 billion empire selling weapons to warlords and terrorists who used them to kill millions.

His deals earned him the nickname the Merchant of Death and inspired the Nicolas Cage blockbuster Lord of War.

By the early 21st century Bout was the second most-wanted man on the planet after Osama bin Laden , whose terrorists he armed.

Yet he proved untouchable until the US government recruited the A-Team to trap him in the most ambitious and expensive sting ever attempted.

Author Damien Lewis, whose new book Operation Relentless reveals how they captured Bout, says: “Nobody else could have done what they did.

“Security agencies from Britain, the US, France and Belgium spent a decade or more trying to get Viktor Bout.

“But it took a team of three guys with chequered histories, poachers turned gamekeepers who lived their whole lives on the edge, to bring him down. It’s remarkable.”

Former British policeman attacked by biker gang in Thailand

Terrifying moment biker gang smashes up British ex-pat’s bar after they set up a rival drinking den in Thailand.

A British former policeman claims a biker gang assaulted him with a truncheon before smashing up his pub in north-eastern Thailand.

Lee Buil, 57, formerly of Hull, Yorkshire, was left needing 18 stitches after he was allegedly assaulted by a number of men in his venue in Surin, Thailand.


Soldiers and police have launched a manhunt for a group of foreigners known to be riding heavy motorcycles in connection with the assault of a British pub owner in Surin on two consecutive nights.

Army officers from the Surin office of the Internal Security Operation Command and officers from Muang Surin police station on Monday checked the Monkey House pub to interrogate Ashley Buil, 57, and his Thai wife, Narisara Boonchart, 39.

Authorities went to the pub after a staff member posted on Facebook that her British boss had been attacked by a gang of foreigners on Friday and Saturday nights but local police had not taken any action. The suspects also damaged the pub’s property, the posts said.

According to the posts, the foreigners were wearing T-shirts printed with “Outlaw Nomad” and “Outlaw Thailand” insignias.

Narisara told military officers that her husband had thrown one of the foreigners out of the pub almost two years ago because he liked to quarrel with others when he was drunk.

Samui police Saturday arrested an alleged American paedophile while he was buying a ticket for a ferry boat to travel to Bangkok, said Surat Thani Immigration Police Chief Pol Col Wanchana Borwornboon.

Wanchana said Jackson Mathew Hall, 28, was apprehended under US arrest warrants and a letter from the US embassy. He was charged with unlawful entry into the Kingdom by using a fake passport and fake identity.

Hall told officers that he has a Thai wife and has had a child with her. He said he has been on the run through several provinces after learning that he was wanted by Interpol and Thai police. He had most recently been hiding on Koh Samui.

He was detained at the Koh Samui police station pending transfer to the Immigration Bureau in Bangkok for extradition. His arrest came shortly after Thai social media widely circulated a warning by the Friends of Women Foundation that an alleged US paedophile was hiding in Thailand and disguising himself as an English teacher under a false name.

Three french tourists face years in Thai jail for making false robbery claim on Samui

Police on the holiday island of Koh Samui said that three French tourists claimed that they were robbed at knife point by five Thai men on three motorcycles after they got lost.

They claimed that everything was stolen from them and the thieves disappeared without a trace.

They have shown to be lying for the purposes of insurance fraud and now face three years in jail themselves.

olice suspected they may be telling lies because they couldn't say where and exactly when it happened. Subsequent inquiries with song thaew drivers and others showed a distinct lack of any witnesses.

The trio were confronted at their hotel and eventually admitted to lying for insurance fraud.

All the missing possessions were found in a room in a hotel next to where they were staying.

Cute’ begpacker selling pics of himself for flight home gets love from Thai women

A blond begpacker selling his travel photos for a flight home attracted a small crowd at Hat Yai’s Greenway Market last night, and unlike popular opinions from the international community, many Thais spoke in support of the shameful, illegal action — even describing the disheveled young man in orange shants as “cute.”

“He’s traveling the world and looking for money to go back to Ukraine. He’s selling the photos he took himself. We can pay how much we want. He also tells a story with every photo. Let’s help him. #PleaseShare,” the woman wrote.

Another woman commented, “I just went to him today. I just told him he was cute.”

A third lady tagged her female friend and left the questionable comment, “Are you interested? He’s white! You can get a picture and talk to him. So worth it.”

Kanyarat Wechapitak and Luke Cook have been handed the death penalty for drug smuggling in Thailand.

A Perth member of the notorious bikie group Hells Angels and his wife have been sentenced to death in Thailand for trying to smuggle half a tonne of crystal methamphetamine into Australia.

Luke Cook, 34, and his Thai wife Kanyarat Wechapitak, 40, were arrested at Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi airport last December and charged in relation to a 2015 plot to smuggle an estimated $300 million of crystal meth - or ice - into Thailand and then on to Australia.

A Thai court has sentenced the couple to death, but that is expected to be commuted to life in prison, media reports on Wednesday said.

American tourist, 25, shot dead after stealing gun and going on shooting spree in Thailand
An American tourist was shot dead after stealing a gun and opening fire at locals in Thailand yesterday evening (November 2).

Michael Giavasis, 25, stole a Glock 9mm from a shooting range in Pattaya before firing it in the air as he rode a motorcycle back to his apartment.

Police gave chase while ordering loads to be locked down.

Giavasis arrived back at his home where he opened fire in the car park outside hitting a television reporter in the foot and attacking a passerby.

Passerby Pitchakorn, 18, said: "I was waiting outside the building and was slapped by the foreign man before he threatened my sister by aiming a gun at her forehead. Then he fired his handgun in the air.''

The injured reporter, Tivakorn Kitmanee, said: ''I saw he was firing the gun so I jumped to the ground but a bullet hit me in the foot.''

Giavasis, who had remained in Thailand as a tourist during the coronavirus lockdown, barricaded himself in his room.

Dozens of armed cops surrounded the building while they negotiated with the shooter. However, when they broke down the door of his fourth-floor room at 3 am he was found dead from a gunshot wound to his head.

Police Colonel Khemmarin Phitsamai said the American man refused to meet the officers and a translator while they tried to resolve the incident.

The officer said Giavasis may have killed himself after realising there was no way to escape.

He said: "We evacuated every person from the condominium building so they were all safe. Roads were also closed so drivers were not at risk.

''The American man died from a gunshot wound, which could have been suicide. There will be an investigation.''

Forensic police were examining the room. The body was taken to the Forensic Medicine Institute for an autopsy.

The U.S. Embassy has been informed of the death of Giavasis, who was born in Greece, and his relatives have been informed.

A Chinese man was arrested after he was allegedly caught selling machine guns over Instagram

Police raided the rented apartment of Wu Qiang, 37, where they reportedly found an arsenal of illegal weapons.

He was lead away in handcuffs from the home in Samut Prakan, Thailand, on Thursday afternoon (Feb 18).

Officers seized nine unregistered assault rifles, two explosives, and a round of ammunition containing 12,000 bullets after searching the place.

More than 40 assorted gun accessories including tools used to make weapons were also allegedly found inside the room.

Aside from the firearms, police said they found plastic packets containing a white substance identified as methamphetamine weighing 5 grams lying on the floor.

Wu Qiang had allegedly been selling the weapons online through an Instagram account that he managed.

Police Lieutenant General Kornchai Klaikeung said undercover cops had verified the reports about his online store before they conducted the raid.

He said: ‘This man was very good at selling with his Master’s Degree in Marketing. He made transactions smoothly and was hard to catch.

‘However, he still will not be able to escape the law. We are looking for other people who might be connected to his activity.’

Police are now investigating where the Chinese man allegedly received his supply from and to wh he had distributed to before.

All of the seized guns were taken to the police station to be held as evidence. Forensics officers were also examining the weapons to find fingerprints.

En blot 25-årig polak er sigtet for mord på sin ukrainske kæreste i lejlighed i Bangkok. Parret ankom til Thailand den 29. april som turister.

Manden tog en taxa fra stedet, men chaufføren synes han opførte sig underligt og alt skulle gå meget hurtigt, så han kontaktede bygningens personale.

De fandt via ejeren af lejligheden ud af at den ukrainske kvinde lå død og delvist forsøgt parteret i lejligheden. Antages hun var død nogle dage inden.

Polakken tog taxaen til grænseovergangen til Cambodia i Sa Kaew provinsen og der blev han anholdt på vej ud af Thailand. Politiet har dermed været hurtige med at få efterlysning til grænseovergangene.

Manden har også været vist i TV, som stadig sker selvom det ikke er tilladt, for at vise der fanges forbrydere - også selvom manden faktisk ikke er dømt.

Der må være gået noget helt galt. For at blive spærret inde i tiden indtil domsfældelse og derefter adskillige års fængsel er vist ikke lige gennemtænkt.

Et fire år langt flugtforsøg har nu fået sin afslutning.

En drabssigtet mand i 50erne er nemlig kommet hjem til sit hjemland, Norge, hvor han har meldt sig til politiet.

Det fortæller det norske TV 2. https://www.tv2.n.../15769784/

Manden har indrømmet, at han tilbage i 2019 dræbte en britisk familiefar på et luksushotel på den thailandske halvø Phuket.

Dog forklarer han selv til mediet, at han handlede af »nødvendighed.«

I snart fire år har han i frygt for de thailandske fængselsstraffe, der siges at være blandt de værste i verden, boet på flere ukendte adresser rundt om på det asiatiske kontinent.

Men fredag lykkes det altså nordmanden at komme med et fly fra Thailand til Paris med et falsk pas.

Var på ferie med sin kæreste
Drabet på den britiske familiefar skete den 21. august 2019.

Nordmanden i 50'erne var på det tidspunkt på ferie med sin kæreste. Sammen boede de på et luksushotel i Phuket, Thailand.

To dage før de skulle hjem, gik de ud og spiste og drak alkohol, inden de gik tilbage til hotellet.

Omkring klokken 04.00 om morgenen skal der være opstået et skænderi mellem nordmanden og den britiske mand, som boede på hotelværelset ved siden af.

Briten siges at have været irriteret over nordmandens sang.

- Så blev det banket på min dør. Jeg troede, de var hotelsikkerhedsvagter. Så åbner jeg døren, og så er det ham, der står der, hævder manden.

Da nordmanden åbner døren, skal han ifølge den drabssigtede nordmand være blevet stukket i skulderen af r03;r03;briten.

Det er på dette tidspunkt, at nordmanden tager kvælertag på briten – i nødstilfælde, ifølge ham selv.

Britens kone kommer med en helt anden forklaring. Hun har forklaret politiet, at det var nordmanden, der kom ind på deres hotelværelse, og at det var ham, der først angreb den britiske småbørnsfar.

Politichefens konklusion

Den thailandske politigeneral Surachate Hakparn er bedre kendt under øgenavnet 'Big Joke'.

Mandag 21. august besluttede 'Big Joke' sig så for at give et længere interview til spanske medier om sagen. Her kom han med flere nye brikker til puslespillet.

For det første kunne han fortælle, at den endelige obduktionsrapport netop var færdig.

Her slog retsmedicinerne fast, at Edwin Arrieta var død, fordi han fik skåret halsen over – og der var ikke spor af slag i hovedet.

Ifølge 'Big Joke' forsøgte Daniel Sancho at gøre det forbi med Edwin Arrieta, som ikke ønskede at afslutte forholdet.

Samtidig havde Daniel Sanchos kæreste, Laura, været på vej til Thailand, og de to havde planlagt at gifte sig kort efter.

Derfor besluttede Daniel Sanchos ifølge politiet at afslutte forholdet til sin mandlige elsker med en 20 centimeter lang kniv.

Han har været efterlyst for narkohandel i Thonglor distriktet i Bangkok i 2020.

Politiet fandt ifølge nyhederne frem til svenskeren da han taggede et resort som han boede på. Ifølge politiet har han tagget et opslag kl 4 om morgenen og blev anholdt ved aftenstid samme dag.

Udover anklagerne for narkohandel er hans opholdsgrundlag også udløbet for lang tid siden og har 624 dages overstay.

Udsigterne er ikke for gode. Alene overstayed giver 10 års indrejseforbud.

Evt dom for narkohandel kan godt blive en del år også. Han er endnu ikke dømt.

Swiss retiree’s brutal attack on Thai woman sparks outcry in Trang

A shocking incident at a shopping mall in the city of Trang Yesterday left a 58-year-old Thai woman with severe injuries after a violent altercation with a 60 year old Swiss national, Dieter Matthias Straumann. The 25 year old victim’s son, Kritpong Kikkham, is resolute in seeking justice for his mother, who is now hospitalised with a prognosis of at least one month’s recovery.

The confrontation began when the victim, Natchanan Kikkham, was shopping and accidentally bumped into Straumann, leading to a heated exchange. Straumann, who has been living in Thailand on a retirement visa, reportedly attacked Natchanan without provocation, striking her multiple times and then fleeing the scene. Witnesses report Natchanan threw a water bottle in retaliation, after which Straumann returned, choking and beating her further, even slamming her head against the floor.

Straumann was subsequently detained by local police for questioning but remained tight-lipped throughout the interrogation. His recent passport renewal on October 28, 2023, and the upcoming visa expiration on November 14, 2024, indicate his legal status in the country. The police have prepared to charge him with serious assault due to the gravity of Natchanan’s injuries, which include a broken nose and chest trauma, rendering her unable to breathe properly.

Kritpong, who along with relatives has been appealing for fairness at the Trang Hospital, recounted his mother’s harrowing experience, emphasizing the unprovoked nature of the attack. Multiple witnesses within the mall have come forward, ready to testify on Natchanan’s behalf. The police, after a preliminary medical report, are consolidating evidence for Straumann’s potential prosecution.

Alle dyrene var på den beskyttede liste i konventionen om international handel med truede arter af vilde dyr og planter (Cites). Opdagelsen blev gjort, efter at betjente bemærkede uregelmæssigheder i nogle røntgenresultater af bagage på en Thai Airways International-flyvning til Mumbai, sagde Athapol Charoenshunsa, generaldirektør for Department of Natural Resources, Wildlife and Plant Conservation (DNP).

Dansk mand idømt 2,5 års fængsel i Thailand

En dansk mand og hans thailandske kone har torsdag fået en dom på to og et halvt års fængsel i Thailand.

Manden, der er tidligere resort-manager, blev først anklaget af sin tidligere samarbejdspartner for forbrydelsen, og onsdag blev han og konen dømt.

Anklagen imod den danske mand lød på bedrageri, som han har begået imod sin tidligere britiske partner. Det skriver mediet »Scandasia.

Den danske mand har i forbindelse med salget af et hotel, han tidligere har været direktør for, ulovligt overført andele fra sin tidligere samarbejdspartner og sig selv til sin kone.

Den nu dømte dansker havde ellers anket sagen, men da han endnu en gang er dømt, har man ifølge thailandsk lov stort set udtømt sine muligheder for at tage sagen videre med en appel.

30. april venter der dog stadig en civil retssag.

Her har den britiske mand sagsøgt både sin tidligere samarbejdspartner fra Danmark, samt en långiver, som har krævet retten over hotellet på grund af udeblevne betalinger.

Den britiske mand vil i det civile søgsmål have ejerskabet til hotellet eller blive kompenseret med en tilsvarende værdi.

Pattaya Bar Staff Reportedly Assaulted by German Man who Allegedly Refused to Pay His Bill

A bar staff member and her manager in Pattaya filed a police report against an alleged German dine-and-dasher who reportedly refused to pay his bill and also attacked them on Sunday, April 7th, 2024.

At 3 PM on April 7th, Ms. Anchisa Thongpuek, a manager of a Pattaya bar on Soi Lengkee, and Ms. Warunee Yodpromwaen, a staff member, filed a police report at the Pattaya Police Station, accusing an unidentified German man of assault.

The two women narrated that the attack occurred around 2:00 AM on the same day that they filed the report. A German man, accompanied by his Thai wife, entered their bar and ordered beers. However, when presented with the bill after finishing their drinks, the man allegedly refused to pay, claiming the bar had inflated the charges. Despite the bar’s explanation of the bill, which was around 1,000 baht, the man became belligerent.

Thai police arrested a British man after he allegedly begged for money to buy drugs outside a convenience store in Koh Pha Ngan, an island in the southern province of Surat Thani.

Locals on Koh Pha Ngan reported to authorities after seeing a foreign man begging outside a 7-Eleven convenience store and using drugs in the area. Officers from the Koh Pha Ngan Police Station and the Tourist Police went to the store near the Phan Thip Market and arrested the foreigner yesterday, April 17.

The foreign beggar was identified as a 47 year old Englishman named Nicholas James Hartas. He was found sitting shirtless outside the store with a paper sign that said, “IF YOU CAN. PLEASE! MONEY FOR FOOD.”

Police checked Hartas’s criminal history and found that he had escaped arrest in a drug case in Koh Samui and sought refuge in Koh Pha Ngan. Hartas confessed to fleeing from the arrest in Koh Samui, stating that he resorted to begging for food. However, residents informed the police that the majority of the money earned from begging was used to purchase drugs.

Jesper Jensen slap "billigt" for tyveri i Thailand

Oprindeligt stod Jesper Jensen til fire års fængsel og en klækkelig bøde for tyveri af en eksklusiv 17.000 kroners dametaske og to små Buddha-amuletter i Bangkoks internationale lufthavn.

Men fordi Jesper Jensen erkendte tyveriet blev straffen halveret. Der var afsat to dage til retssagen, men den kunne afsluttes på under en time da danskeren erkendte sig skyldig.

Den Jesper Jensen har siddet varetægtsfængslet siden november måned og kan med dommen se frem til at komme ud når han udvises af Thailand om forventeligt et par uger.

Jesper Jensen skal udover dommen selv betale for rejsen ud af Thailand, samt for at overskride sit visum.

I was there to visit Danish Jesper Jensen, who has been held in Samut Prakan Prison near Bangkok since november 2023 for allegedly stealing a bag. According to himself, he never intended to steal the bag, but was looking to return it to the owner, as he had found it unattended at the airport. He is currently waiting for his sentencing, which presumably will happen on 16 May 2024.

12 års fængsel for drab på thailandsk kvinde

Den 27-årige Frederik Petersen er blevet idømt 12 års fængsel for at have dræbt en 57-årig thailandsk kvinde på en massageklinik. Det var kvinden selv, der lukkede sin drabsmand ind.

Da en bekendt til en 57-årig thailandsk kvinde den 21. juni sidste år ankom til hendes massageklinik på Alderlers Alle i Fårevejle, var det et uhyggeligt syn, der var i vente.

På adressen lå den 57-årig kvinde nemlig dræbt, og det blev startskuddet til en større eftersøgning og politiaktion, der tirsdag er kulmineret med en drabsdom ved Retten i Holbæk til den nu 27-årige Frederik Petersen.

Ifølge dommen ankom han tidligt om morgenen den 21. juni til massageklinikken, efter han havde været til en fest i området.

Her åbnede den 57-årig kvinde døren for ham og lukkede ham ind, men det resulterede senere på morgenen i et drab, hvor kvinden blev kvalt.

I retten har Frederik Petersen nægtet sig skyldig. Han erkender at have placeret sine hænder på kvindens hals, men siger, at han på grund af hans indtag af stoffer den morgen ikke kan huske, hvad der er foregået.

Den 27-årige mand er bosat i Nykøbing, men blev anholdt to dage efter drabet efter at være blevet efterlyst offentligt på en adresse på Amager.

Frederik Petersen valgte at modtage dommen på 12 års fængsel.

Dansk mand strandet i thailandsk fængsel

Dansk mand strandet i thailandsk fængsel
I mere end tre et halvt år har en 54-årig dansker delt fængselscelle med 63 andre i det thailandske fængsel Pattaya Remand Prison. I den ene ende af cellen er et fælles toilet, som blot er et hul i gulvet omgivet af en knæhøj mur.

Han beskriver selv tiden som et ”levende helvede på jord”.

Pattaya Remand Prison ligger i udkanten af den kendte bade- og festby Pattaya et par timers kørsel syd for Bangkok. Men selv om fængslet kun ligger ganske kort fra Pattayas palmestrande og sprudlende natteliv, står forholdene i skærende kontrast til feriebyens mange luksushoteller.

Og lige nu er det alene en bøde på 72.000 danske kroner, som står i vejen for, at den 54-årige kan blive overført fra fængslet i Thailand til Danmark.

Den danske mand blev anholdt og dømt i 2021 for indtagelse af blandt andet hash samt besiddelse og salg af stoffer. Ved anholdelsen havde han 9,5 gram methamfetamin på sig. Den danske mand fik i første omgang en dom på knap 15 års fængsel. Den blev senere sat ned til fem år og syv måneder.

De thailandske myndigheder har egentlig givet grønt lys for overførsel til afsoning i et dansk fængsel, men overførslen er gået i stå på grund af bøden på 72.000 kroner, som den danske mand er blevet idømt udover sin fængselsstraf.

Den danske mand meddeler at han ikke selv har nogen mulighed for at rejse pengene.

En dansk mand er blevet anholdt i Thailand

En 27-årig dansk mand er blevet anholdt i Thailand i en sag, hvor en britisk mand blev udsat for et voldsomt røveri. Den danske mand er en del af en gruppe på fire personer, der er blevet anholdt. De tre andre - to mænd og en kvinde - er alle briter.

Offeret havde været i byen i Bangkok med en gruppe turister, som inviterede ham med tilbage til en lejlighed for at feste videre. I lejligheden blev han bundet med reb og tape, banket og angrebet med en strømpistol.

Offeret blev tvunget til at ringe til sin kæreste for at sige, at han tog ud at rejse med nogle venner, der ville komme og hente nogle af hans ting. Det skal have ført til, at gerningsmændene stjal penge og andre genstande til en samlet værdi af cirka 570.000 kroner.
