Those who enter under the Test & Go scheme are required to spend at least a night in […]

Thailand looks foolish every time this happens... not because it happens, but because they are too soft on offenders to the point that people believe they can get away with this behavior with a slap on the wrist (2000 baht fine, 1 week in "quarantine jail" and eventual deportation is not cutting it). I've no doubt these two too will be caught. And extenuating circumstances aside (if there are any), it's time to drop the hammer and make examples of people. Prayut needs to have a chat with Duterte for some ideas.

Duterte? If the Philippines won't charge him as an accomplice to murder, an international tribunal should look into it.

Not his policies on illicit drugs... his policies on those we break quarantine. There is no international tribunal looking into that to my knowledge.

You're too contagious to live anyway else. It's like your sanatorium.

There's always someone who wants to put themselves ahead of everyone else. To those two..... I hope they deport you or put you in a Thai prison!!! To the Thai people...we're not all like that.

I've been living in The Philippines for a minute. I can say that this is all air. He talks and talks but reality is different. A Filipina just recently did it after returning from abroad. She will be "investigated". The Philippines answer to everything related to foreigners is to "deport" and blacklist so I really have no idea what Philippines you are talking about.

Not "like".

They ARE wanted criminals as they broke the law and are wanted.

it doesn't get very much simpler than that.

That's exactly what I'm talking about... you don't blacklist and deport nationals (your Filipina example case in point), you blacklist and deport foolish foreigners we break quarantine (the point of my original comment directly related to this post). What Duterte does or does not follow through on, and what is simply bluster, I have no idea.

What about all the bar owners busted for breaking quarantine regulations non mask wearing selling alcohol, in some cases drug use. We ever find out what sentences they got. Easy just to blame the Foreigners again.

Here we go again all the while these idiots just promoted a massive Thai domestic travel and New Years campaign. If anyone has been the most dangersous it is them with their bad decisions. CM is starting to get cracks. Everywhere you go you see ambulances with their lights on taking people to the You got Covid house.

It's easy enough to find out what happens to the guilty. It's equally easy to play the victim card.

Sure it’s not all the road accident victims, as CM did have the worst statistics?

No. I can say with without reservation Covid related. Even today when I went to go running I saw 4.

Guess these two great and heinous felons should be a prime priority, while all around us the systems of graft and corruption carry on around through their most accepted manner.
