Channel 7 reported that police on Koh Phangan found an Englishman who had been overstaying in Thailand for more than a year.

 

During a raid by Koh Phangan tourist police and Surat Thani Immigration Russell Hough was acting suspiciously and tried to flee on foot. 

 

His passport was checked and he was seen to have entered Thailand on August 1st 2017.

He was shown to be from Mansfield in the north of England. He admitted overstaying. 

 

Other news pictures showed ramshackle living accommodation at the property that had no house number. 

 

Hough will be banned from coming back to Thailand for ten years, reported the Thai media who said that police were conducting sweeps under the orders of top brass including Immigration chief Maj-Gen "Big Joke"   Surachate Hakparn.

Maybe I count differently but the picture clearly shows he has an extension of stay until Feb 2018 issued Nov 7, 2017 - that would make his overstay eight months, not one year. 

 

It is hard to see the date but if you look carefully, he entered on a Non-Imm B valid until Nov (top left) issued in July 2560 (the 2560 is dead clear) then underneath is the extension until Feb.  

 

Makes no difference to the penalty - get caught overstaying 1 day you can get banned.

He’s from Mansfield, that’s why.

Mansfield is not such a bad place. I can think of many worse places. Even in the UK.
