They arrived at the scene to find a house party with eight people outside the back of a house, in violation of Krabi’s Emergency Decree lockdown to deal with the Covid-19 pandemic.

The group comprised four Thai women aged 28-45 and four Scandinavian men – Norwegian nationals aged 62 and 63, and Swedes aged 65 and 74. Police found them with assorted alcoholic beverages, soda water, carbonated drinks and a bucket of ice.

  1. In the MEANtime, the ROYAL THAI POLICE, oh so high in moral and respected, cannot find the hit-and-run driver that I provided them with the registration number, owner ID and description of the driver, they cannot find the murderer of the activist in north, they cannot find Red Bull killer-heir, they cannot find the muggers of the activist in Bangkok, they cannot resolve this and that.

    It is all about priorities you see!

    (Is this kind of a news a surprise in Thailand?! NOT!)
