What he did do was destroy the Kings Head on the coins. It is illegal to mess with Thai money by tearing it, or burning it or stepping on it as this is a direct assault again the Thai royalty.  If they want to kick him out of put him in jail, then that is where they need to start.

Does defacing an image of the King fall under lese majeste laws ?

LOL

I'm certain prosecutors will be thanking Thaivisa's crackerjack barstool legal team for their interpretation of Thai law.

I asked a question, not offer my  interpretation of the law.

Sorry, but I have known about this law regarding Thai money and the King for over 20 years. See how far you get if you are caught with your foot on a Thai bill.

For your question the answer is yes.

so what happened to the police 'fully investigating his work permit' after the cat stunt?

 

he's all in order?

 

i'd be interested to hear what type of work setup he has and if he hasn't does that mean 'digital nomadism' is effectively legal? hmmm..

Thankyou for your input, I assumed (wrongly in this case) he used Thai coins.

From the video I see something that looks like 10 Baht coins, and I doubt he would use 2 Euro instead.

If anyone sees him before he gets kicked out, kindly douse him in liquid nitrogen, lock him in a room with some scorpions, and then stick him to a railway track to see how his strength compares to those of the coins.

Ingenious, if perhaps a touch over the top!

The guy is a complete tosser, but if he is staying here legally and hasn't broken any serious laws I don't see how he can be deported. I think if he was actually charged with animal cruelty offences at most he would have to pay a fine or fines. As for the trespass violation, I am not sure but suspect it would be the same. Pretty sure these are not 'deportable' offences. 

One cannot be deported just because some people (myself included) find their behaviour offensive and sign a petition. I think a big issue for most is that he is making $ from his antics. 

 

It reminds me of a petition in the US put forward by 'non-Beliebers' to have Justin Bieber deported to his native Canada. Which I think spawned a funny counter-petition in Canada to deny his re-entry/repatriation. 

 

Unless they can convict this fella of a serious crime, looks like Thailand may be stuck with him. 

 

P.S. Even if he got convicted under LM112 he would still not be deported and have to do jail time here.

Just another fine example of the "oh look at me, I'm special" attitude of w.a.nkers like him. Not limited to Yanks though thank God as there are plenty of other Farangs who demonstarate this type of behavior. Send these Bozos packing with the notation for Immigration to permamently ban them.

Ah well "Happy Enough" beat me to it.

I was just about to suggest that you contact the authorities with your details so you could be summoned as an expert witness at the guy's deportation hearing.

Thinking he is smart is redundant. Maybe there was one Thai coin in the bunch flattened as there were numerous showed in the cupped hand..  Even if not perhaps one of the Queen of England or can be construed an attack demeaning on the Thai foreign friends. 

 

Let the Ex-missionary take his fate as a man.
