Pattaya: Stabbed Korean puts a 100,000 baht bounty on attacker's head

Thai caption: Wanted: With a 100,000 baht bounty on his head

 

The South Korean man stabbed in a lonely soi near Pattaya last month has spoken to the press for the first time. 

 

Thailand's tourist police who are heading the hunt for the assailant have so far failed to bring the 38 year old called "Park" to justice. 

 

On October 24th the victim - also named Park who is 28 - was stabbed 17 times and left for dead by his red plate BMW. 

 

Yesterday the victim said that he was still under medical supervision following the savage attack. He told the media that he is offering a 100,000 baht reward for information leading to the capture of the man responsible. 

 

Pol Lt-Col Piyapong Ensarn said that the tourist police throughout the country are involved in the hunt and that pictures of the man had been circulated. A warrant has been issued. 

 

Thaivisa notes that more than 4 million Koreans have the surname Park, amounting to about one in twelve of the population. 

 

Thaivisa also notes that at the time of the attack the police stated that more than one person was involved, a detail now missing from the Sanook story related to the hunt.

"The Tourist police throughout the country"? what about the rest of them?

 

 Do the Tourist police want to keep the reward to themselves?

 

(sarcasm alert)

I think the attacker was Korean, if you are referring to Thai's never go one-on-one …

Would someone please explain what a red plate means in this case?  Is it a diplomat's plate?

So both of these guys are not tourists?  Why pass it to the tourist police?

 

Maybe the culprit escaped LOS by getting a bunch of Korean friends together and passing themselves off as a boy band.

So, if Park did not Park his car, he wouldn't have been stabbed by Park.  🙂

reminds me of that Mel Gibson movie about his kid being kidnapped.  Mel turns things around and offers a bounty for much more than the kidnappers were asking for the ransom!  Pretty clever since that increases the chances that one of the gang might rat out the gang.  Not sure how often this has ever happened in real life.

In Thailand, Mel Gibson's movie is adjusted a little, when an assailant is not known.  They just grab a Burmese laborer and fabricate a case against them.  Then, collect the reward, and declare Thailand a safe tourist destination again.  🙂

I can believe that is not a rare thing.

Red Plates from wikipedia

 

"

Trade plates

TargaThai NeroSuRosso.jpg
 

Similar to those issued in the United Kingdom, motor dealers' (trade) plates, or temporary license plates, are typically carried by unregistered vehicles or vehicles without proper documents (i.e., a road tax and insurance). While the plate is most commonly utilised by authorised vehicle dealers and local vehicle companies with approvals and permits from the DLT, they are commonly issued to new vehicles for use during the eight weeks or so that it takes for new plates to be issued.

Trade plates carry a significant number of restrictions. Drivers with red plates must seek permission from authorities if they want to use the vehicle at night. Cars with red plates cannot be driven out of the province where the vehicle was registered at purchase. Drivers must ask for permission each time they want to travel outside the specified area. Documents must be in order, with the destination and the dates of travel. Red-plated cars are not allowed to use expressways. Drivers of cars with red plates must have all car-related documents, a proper driving licence, and ID card ready for checks at all times. Police officers are authorized to stop any car with a red plate to examine the car and the driver's documents even if no traffic offence has occurred.[12]

Trade plates are also used by foreign vehicles without proper permits or document from their countries of origin to gain permission of entry into Thailand, when clearance is authorised by customs.[citation needed] In special cases, such as the transfer of show cars, trade plates may also be borrowed from the DLT.[citation needed]

Trade plates are made from pressed alloy, with a red background and black digits. Trade plates are one or two consonants and four digits long.

Believe it or not, this is the way to do it.

They will rat out their own brother, mother, father and son, or anyone else for that sort of money.

It is definitely the best way to get the police on the job.

A red plate car in Thailand is a new car.

To prime catalysts that engender police activity

 

The prospect of personal gain

 

&

 

The prospect of negative social media exposure

Next week's news: Mr Park or whoever hands himself in to the police and gets the appropriate fine of 500baht and a Wia then in a back room at the police station splits the money with the police 50/50. Its the Thai way.

Park means Smith in English . It's like Ngyuen in Vietnamese , Sharma in Indian and Amir in Arabic . All very common names .

     There was a story in newspaper in the 90s about a bloke called Im who escaped from a jail in Korea . The paper said that the Police thought they'd caught Im in a restaurant , only to find that it was not Im . They later found Im hiding under a house .

No, a newly purchased vehicle waiting for it's new plates. Although people like to keep the temp plates as a new car status symbol.

Would be interesting to know the whole story, why they were meeting in a dark out of the way place, the nature of the meet up, etc.

His friend just bought a new BMW and the other guy asked if he could have a drive.  His friend refused, so he stabbed him.

 

A lot of people are reading more into this story.  It's a simple misunderstanding between two friends.  

 

🤣

New car has red plates, until you gets white after a few months.
