While the Thai population is armed to the teeth with millions of unregistered weapons.

He was charged with illegally possessing ammunition, not with possessing illegal ammunition.  7.65mm is what is normally referred to as .32 caliber pistol ammunition.  This is legal ammunition in Thailand but you need a Por 4 permit for a .32 pistol to possess it legally.

I don't suppose he was get off as lightly as the retired Thai police general who was arrested trying ot board a plane in Tokyo with a loaded .22 magnum revolver in his hand luggage.  He was released after two weeks following heavy diplomatic pressure.  He should really have been left there to serve time.  Even though this guy apparently didn't even have the gun to go with the ammo and it was in his check-in luggage, not his carry on, he is not likely to be given the benefit of the doubt due to his provenance.

 

By the way what happened to the young Swiss guy who was arrested in similar circumstances at Phuket airport with some 9mm rounds in his check-in bag that he seemed genuinely to have overlooked before leaving home.

Sudanese? Maybe I'm way off, but aren't Sudanese supposed to be black Africans? This guy looks more Arab, like someone from neighboring Egypt, Saudi Arabia or somewhere else in North Africa or the Middle East.

 

I know this is a bit off-topic, but I was just wondering...

Southern Sudan is black African. The north is Arabic.

They don't like each other which is why there was a civil war that was decades long.

The north controls the south, or, at least it did until the world's newest country was created, called South Sudan.

I know a number of people who are keen shooters at home who self-discovered they were travelling with live ammo. It is surprisingly easy to do. Usually using a range bag as carryon bag is the problem but not in this case.

Send him to jail for a long time then prohibit him from acquiring entry into Thailand for a long, long time.
