    Phuket Taxi Driver to face the full force of justice

    Ah, I'm only joking.

    Phuket taxi driver held for intimidating, attacking tourist

    PHUKET: A young taxi driver has been arrested for assaulting a Lithuanian tourist who refused to get into his cab outside a resort in Karon.

    Police arrested the driver after a complaint from Arminas Macys, 41, who arrived in Thailand on holiday on November 28 and was staying at the resort.

    On December 8, he complained to police that he had been attacked by a taxi driver outside the hotel.

    He explained that he had flagged down a taxi on the road outside the resort.

    As he went to get in it he was grabbed by a man who indicated that he must use instead one of the taxis in a queue who “owned” the hotel, and not the taxi he had stopped.

    Mr Macys said he would not, at which point the man hit him a number of times with a piece of wood, causing cuts and bruises to his left arm.

    Investigators were able to identify the attacker as Narongsak Gongsawat, 19. He was arrested yesterday afternoon (December 13) and charged with intimidation and assault.

    He then went to the police station where they all had a right old laugh at how much fun it was to beat up tourists, then he was sent home...

    Oh to be a tourist and believe that this sort of shit is taken seriously by the cops, they couldn't give a pigs ass.
    The tourist is lucky to walk out with his ass not torn apart as it would be if hew reported the same crap in Russia.
    I know Russia is not Lithuania, but same sort of thieving cunts.
    There can’t be good living where there is not good drinking

    They aint doing shit but picking up idiots on overstay. The taxi mafia, the tuk tuk mafia, the jet ski mafia are not to worry. Its the farungs that are the problem. Two years now of an intense crack down and nothing has changed. Since June its been a super crack down and nothing has changed.

    Money is being made and that is all that matters.
