  1. Sure, but also possible that someone (with a very big brown envelope in his/her hands - there would undoubtedly be very amounts of funds available to fund / buy her 'trip') turned turned a blind eye to the formalities. Also possible a casino is involved because several operators cannot re-enter Thailand because they will go jail for other serious crimes, also meaning there are quite immoral. The 'escape' very likely needed some strategic resources, a scaly casino operator just the ticket, very probably knows which officials to approach, etc. Very probably can easily arrange the car etc., for the trip inside Cambodia to get to the airport, etc etc. These are folks who have no ethics and will engage in anything that brings a nice pay off. So perhaps a casino is quite good as 'transit point' to get to a private jet airport. But let's be honest, all of this is just speculation. I don't know the real facts, and the truth is not many people do at this stage.
  2. 1. Money? 2. Large sections of the whole border between Thailand and Cambodia are not monitored and their is no 'fence'. Walking across at a predetermined 'open' point would be very easy and very possibly not that far from the casino areas. Further there are several private jet airports not far inside Cambodia, one in particular is only 20 - 30 minutes drive on OK roads from the open border, it has no linkage to the flight permission / flight control agencies in any country and they don't require to see flight plans, tickets or passports. Yet they have openly operated like this for many years. A quick google search will find more details.
  3. US pedophile fugitive and English teacher arrested in Koh Samui

    "...Would you be happy to have a pedo child rapist in charge of your son or daughter?..." Good question indeed!
  4. On the other hand maybe it's an ex-cop now living in self exile.
  5. In fact you can easily and openly buy false or flipping number plates. In reality this activity is illegal but like many things just ignored, resulting in many such business activities becomes very open.
  6. And of course your idols never monitored their 'enemies'?
  7. "It was far better at this stage for Thailand to ensure that existing fire regulations were actually adhered to rather than seek anothersafety alternative." A very good point, and always needed as a basic, plus there should be regular inspections and huge fines if the escape stairwells are blocked with shop stock, old furniture, etc. However always looking at new developments is also a must.
  8. There is worse, several cop bikes outside 7 regularly, very near to the door making it difficult to get past them to get into 7, and many times the bikes are driven along the foot path and/or on the wrong side of the road to get to 7.
  9. use them, then throw them under the bus with no conscience whatever
  10. Brainwashing at work, both in the poorer areas and in temples frequented by the wealthy who one would assume would know better, but they don't ...
  11. Just curiosity, is your company under a Thai BOI (Board of Investment) scheme? Please ignore if that's a sensitive question. Why? One professor I know mentioned recently he heard third hand that WP and visa renewals for some teachers / professors (not sure if it would apply to teachers, professors or both) would be on-line coming soon.
  12. Yawn, your post takes the annual award for most off topic post. A very sad and sensitive story and you try to turn it into a negative political diversion. If you really had to post why not say something compassionate about the actual story. You got nothing better to do?
  13. Well said, my belief is that lack of parental guidance; teaching what is right and what is wrong, what is acceptable behavior etc., is often a part of the cause of these situation. There's two late teens (1F, 1M) in part of my extended family, their parents have been absent most of their lives and the kids from toddlers have lived with numerous other relatives and strangers. They have very poor education and no resources whatever. They see their parents rarely and they are strangers, and the two teenagers show their anger at their parents readily. The parents just don't care. Their same age friends, pretty much all from the same background are their family, they steal regularly, often with violence involved, to survive. They basically have no future.
