  1. She might be looking for new friends post-Brexit. Or merely exchanging notes on how to ruin a country?
  2. Lets see how much coverage this gets in the UK. Or will it be just ignored that the British PM meets the head of the Thai Junta?
  3. The Thaivisa commentariat is missing the point. We are looking here at the Russian Toon, who is walking the country. Once he arrives in Pattaya, there will be Uncle Tu and General Rolex with the Thai media waiting for him for another photo opportunity...
  4. Old thread, but... Did anyone find out whether ports 80 and 443 are hardwired in this routers? Or can one really forwarded these two ports to anywhere on the LAN? Cheers!
  5. Reading a statutory text that says: ' "Work" means engaging in work...' and therefore concluding that man who pours water over fire is in violation of employment legislation, shows quite a disregard for practising law in this county. Good luck to you!
  6. No, walking into the push and pouring water over flames is not a violation of Thai Labour Law. Neither is going out and catching a snake or biting your dog. Signing up as a volunteer firefighter at your local fire brigade however would be a violation. Yes, people might be hung up about the Labour law here, but this case has nothing to do with it.
  7. Certainly a sackable offence under the Trade and Description Act to announce Consular Services as "superb" when they are clearly not.
  8. Thanks @blackcab! Very useful.
  9. Hello, I'm looking for information on a company registered with the Department of Business Development. The company is registered as "Company Limited" and I can see their name, location, and record number in this database http://www.dbd.go.th/Applications/cds/ but nothing else. How to obtain more detailed information, such as name of promoters, directors, objectives, date of incorporation, etc.? Which information is publicly available under Thai law? Thanks!
  10. It's the news focusing on this nonsense and the case was taken up because of the "morality" issues. But she is now investigated for the product itself. Police have sent the cream to forensic labs.
  11. I'm sure the gentleman's house has a utility room...
  12. Surely the video clip is not really offensive. But selling dubious cosmetics that claim to do miracles, that are inadequately labelled, and very likely contain poisonous substances, is not only highly offensive but a serious crime. As such it should be pursued by regulators and enforcement agencies. Sadly nobody cares about this, as long as you don't show your big booty.
  13. Looks more like they are enforcing existing statutes. Sadly on a rather selective basis, as dubious "cosmetics" products are sold everyday here that don't confirm to the rest of the Act.
  14. Nope -- they're "celebs", hence the disproportionate actions by the police even for Thai standards. No one would have flinched, if images of a random Somchai's willy were accidentally broadcast to the world. But because Thai netizens were so excited about the private parts of some celeb's boyfriend, police waded in pandering to hypocrite moral facadery, despite the case having no legal merits. Meanwhile the celeb couple --included the attending paparazzi corps-- are loving it, as this absurd panto seems a welcome publicity op for everyone. Yet, law enforcement and due processes are presumably nobody's concern.
