The chief of the Chonburi police has instructed the Pattaya police to conduct an inquiry into claims that an 80 year old French resident of the resort had his passport taken away from him and was extorted out of 2,000 baht. 

 

Pim, in her forties, the wife of the Frenchman earlier appealed to the media after her husband and a group of compatriots and a Belgian were taken into custody for flouting the Pattaya beach ban due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

 

She claimed that a bail bondsman had taken 50,000 baht from them and the police had not only kept her husband's passport but charged the group 2,000 baht to be taken home after their case dragged on to 1am past the end of curfew time. 

 

Yesterday Lt-Col Sumeth Hanwisai, head of investigation at Pattaya police, told Naew Na that provincial chief Pol Maj-Gen Prakan Prajong had instructed the Pattaya station chief Pol Col Khemmarin Phitsamai to call all sides in to get to the truth of the matter.

 

Lt-Col Sumeth said he would head the inquiry and promised that if police officers had broken the law they would be prosecuted. 

 

An announcement about the case will be made within two days.

Last night a guy violating curfew was made to sing the Thai National Anthem. Walking on the beach sidewalk is surely a lesser crime. Could have had them sing their own anthem.

I'd have said I'd like to stay at the station for a few hours and took the 100 baht bike

"It was all a misunderstanding, and no 50,000 bail bond was ever paid"

(because no proof no receipt)

 

by the end of the day, expect to see a "good samaritan" taxi driver show up with a bag containing 50K

Noooo, a french guy would never stop singing.......

And their National song is pure blood and gore if translated.

I give you the first 3 verses.

 

Verse 1:

Let's go children of the fatherland,

The day of glory has arrived!
Against us tyranny's
Bloody flag is raised! (repeat)
In the countryside, do you hear
The roaring of these fierce soldiers?
They come right to our arms
To slit the throats of our sons, our friends!

 

Refrain:

Grab your weapons, citizens!
Form your battalions!
Let us march! Let us march!
May impure blood
Water our fields!

 

Verse 2:

This horde of slaves, traitors, plotting kings,
What do they want?
For whom these vile shackles,
These long-prepared irons? (repeat)
Frenchmen, for us, oh! what an insult!
What emotions that must excite!
It is us that they dare to consider
Returning to ancient slavery!

 

Verse 3:

What! These foreign troops
Would make laws in our home!
What! These mercenary phalanxes
Would bring down our proud warriors! (repeat)
Good Lord! By chained hands
Our brows would bend beneath the yoke!
Vile despots would become
The masters of our fate!

Hard questions will be asked and answers pursued with dogged determination, such as

"Where's my cut?"

Police investigating themselves?

 

Seems to be what happens in many countries. 

 

In the UK we have the Independent Police Authority - 5555555555!

Lovely anthem. Always enjoyed it before watching French national team play rugby.

99% sure the story will go cold now

Possibly a "cold case" review in 20 years time when the elderly gentleman is relaxing on that tropical beach "in the sky".
