Thailand mulls ID wristbands, curfews for tourists

Recommended Posts

“The next step would be some sort of electronic tracking device but this has not yet been discussed in detail.”

Oh, this will be a paradise for tourists, treated as criminals with electronic devices.

Are these people serious coming up with ideas like that?

I'm afraid so. It's what you get from an education system that discourages analytical and critical thinking: people shooting their mouths off without assessing the ramifications of what they are saying.

I had to check the date: Its not April Fools day for another 7 months!

In the title is says "Curfews" but this news report contains nothing about curfews.

I swear that these reports ONLY written to wind us up ????

Time for the General/PM to appoint a new Minister of Tourism.

Preferably someone with an education and foreign travel experience.

I suggest that they get ID numbers or barcodes tattooed on the wrists, and give us all a coloured armband based on our nationality. Perhaps put us in a barbed wire fenced off area for our own protection as well.

If the Tourism Ministry is capable of even mulling tagging for foreigners, imagine what the ISOC (Internal Security Operations Command) is up to with their own population?

makes sense. It's so much harder to establish a competent, dedicated and reliable police force - that's totally unmullable!...No Thai mulling expert would be found to even remotely mull this about.

And in the meantime:

Expect to see taxi drivers who have been convicted for their role in Phuket's taxi mafia back behind the wheel without delay, the Phuket Provincial Land Transportation Office (PLTO) confirmed to the Phuket Gazette Tuesday.
"Anybody who was sentenced for his or her role in the taxi mafia - even individuals who ripped people off, were violent or intimidated tourists - can continue to work as a taxi driver as long as his or her sentence has been suspended," says Konlayut Jattutasri, chief of the PLTO Licensing Division.

I am struck dumb by the utter idiocy of this.

Maybe it's the Thais and migrant workers that should be fitted with GPS id tags that will track their every move - yes I know

...how about branding or banding all convicted Thai criminals....robbers, rapists and the such...instead...

Yes but remember in Thailand we don't have criminals, rapists or murderers, because Thai people don't do those things..............Yeah ?

This guy seriously needs to be sacked and replaced because he is clearly out of his depth. What educated person would come up with such ridiculous ideas and concepts. Yes there is a problem, so why not have law enforcement do their jobs or maybe a law in place that protects a persons safety. One might suggest automatic 10 years in jail for any Thai causing harm to anyone else especially that of tourists. One could suggest that it could work both ways. Law enforcement need to work harder to get people like this off the streets and out of society.
