Does that mean they never advertised ?, 

Some of these laws are strange to say the least,like stealing from an airport,

at nighttime, from a temple, they are all more serious than normal theft,and

i am sure there are many more other situations,.

Would be nice if your journalistic wizards could tell use when this case goes to court, where, what the judgment is and sentences are etc...a bit of follow up, please. Half the time I read this stuff, the news cycle moves on and then it's either quietly dropped due to pay-offs or there is some cringe worthy light sentence as there is no long media attention. Would it be too much to ask the Nation to inform us of the conclusion to this case, even if it is like in a year's time due to the painfully slow cogs of justice here turning at a lamentable speed?

so that means the chinese cant be blamed for it because it was illegal.

so how about the thai officials who should be overseeing these boats that were acting illegally

such a fxxxx cop out

as with everything in the world today its all in the wording.

and most write the words to best suit themselves.

all countries.
