Big Joke helps Chinese tourist after illegal greedy guides' litter fine fiddle

When a Chinese tourist was caught littering in Pattaya little did he know that his complaint would lead to the chief of immigration.

 

And the arrest of two people and prosecution of a tour company. 

 

Yu Jiang Min admitted tossing some trash where he shouldn't at Bali Hai port and was spotted by a "tessakit" (municipal officer) for the offence. 

 

His boat was about to leave so the two guides on his tour - Jiang Yu Hang and Udom Sae-Yia - said they would sort out the fine. 

 

They got a receipt but Ju Jiang Min noticed that the sum he had to pay was 3,000 baht and had been altered. 

 

The guides said they had done him a favor and bargained down the payment from 5,000 baht. 

 

He was dissatisfied and later went to the police where it was discovered that the fine had in fact been altered from 2,000 baht so the guides could make some extra on the side. 

 

The ruse led all the way to Maj-Gen Surachate Hakparn the new head of Immigration who announced a swathe of arrests.

 

Both guides were arrested after they were found to be working illegally on temporary visas and were further charged with tampering with state documents. 

 

And the company they worked for "Thai How Are You Co Ltd" based in Wang Thong Lang faces charges for hiring illegal workers.

 

The company owner was named as Wichian Phromwichai. 

 

A huge vinyl board at the arrest press conference proclaimed "illegal guides arrested for fine fiddle". 

 

Maj-Gen Surachate - affectionately known as Big Joke - has only recently moved from the Thailand Tourist Police Bureau to his new position as acting commissioner of the immigration police.

All that vinyl must be causing damage to the environment.

 Other reports say it was a cigarette butt.

Maybe the Big Jokester could lead a nationwide campaign to install trash cans around the country as of this time they are as rare as hen's teeth.

No, they recycled it and used the other side for the 1 million baht cheque presentation to the shooting victims family.
