    Foreigners Arrested For Robbery & Assault on Expat & 3 Year Old Son

    Three foreigners have recently been arrested in two different criminal cases, police said on Thursday.


    Two suspects arrested in the first case were only identified as Roshan from Iraq and Ghassan from Syria who were wanted for alleged robbery and assault, police said.


    The arrest of Roshan on 13th July and Ghassan on 31st July followed a complaint by a Thai beauty salon owner, who told Lumpini police her foreign husband and three-year-old son were injured by the two suspects who also allegedly robbed them and made off with an Apple watch on 3rd July 2020.


    It emerged Ghassan was being prosecuted in three other criminal cases and was prohibited from leaving Thailand, while Roshan had previously been arrested and charged for illegal entry, police said.


    In the other case, a male Nigerian national identified only as Nonso was arrested on 23rd July with 12 small bags, each containing a pellet of compressed cocaine, police said.


    The arrest of the man, who is believed to be a member of a transnational drug gang, followed a tip-off that he had entered Thailand illegally and was staying at a condominium in Suan Luang district of Bangkok and dealing drugs.


    Police arrested him on 23rd July while he was getting into a car in a car park, police said.


    He was charged with possession of a Type 2 narcotic with intent to sell.


    A background check revealed he had entered Thailand illegally two years ago, police said.

    Heroin, Amphetamine, Methamphetamine, Ecstasy and LSD are category one.

    Cocaine, Codeine, Methadone and Morphine are category two.

    Makes little sense, of course.

    Why the differentiation between foreigner and expat in the title?

    I presume expats are white, and foreigners are nasty, evil immigrants?

    Pretty much. We're expats when we haven't done anything wrong, foreigner when we're to blame.

    Actually heroin is diamorphine which does have legitimate medical applications. So, the distinction still remains puzzling and rebuts to a certain extent your explanation.

    Codeine is a type 2 drug nowadays?

    Didn't know that...used to take it as a pain killer when young.
