    Expat in Koh Samui Prison on drug charges, nearly $3,000 raised to get her out

    A 21 year old South African woman is locked in Thai prison after she allegedly signed for a package containing 250 grams of MDMA, an ingredient in ecstasy, according to a GoFundMe account. People say she’s innocent and have raised $2,966 USD to get her out. She’s apparently facing drug charges that carry life imprisonment.


    Ashley Oosthuizen has been living in Thailand for more than 2 years. She worked as a teacher at an international school in Koh Samui, according to her Facebook page. The GoFundMe page says Ashley started Hot in the Biscuit, a breakfast and brunch restaurant on the island.

    “She is well known in the community and liked by all who meet her. She is truly a wonderful human being with a heart of gold.”


    While Ashley was at work, a package was delivered and addressed to her former boss. She signed for the package, but didn’t open it and set it aside. Later, the police raided the shop and searched the package, finding 250 grams of MDMA, according to the GoFundMe page.


    Apparently, Ashley was arrested and charged with importation with intent to distribute a Category 1 narcotic. Importing a Category 1 substances carries a penalty of up to life imprisonment and a fine of 1 million to 5 million baht under Thailand’s Narcotics Act.


    “The case against her is absolutely horrible – there is no evidence excepting the unopened package addressed to her former friend but because the package contained 250 grams of drug they are holding her as the one responsible.”

    The GoFundMe page says Ashley was drug tested and came out negative. Her friends say they expect the case to be dismissed, but say Thai courts move “painfully slow” and they don’t want Ashley spending time behind bars waiting for a court date.


    “Thai prisons are not like Western prisons. She cannot stay there so long. She is only 21 years old. She is an innocent victim.”

    with a dearth of foreigners to scam, extort and shakedown on devils island the local cops are hurting and scrabbling around for funds to buy more big gold rings for their fat fingers and pay their mistresses and here is a perfect opportunity to squeeze some much needed cash out of the hapless falang,

    the money raised by the gofundme page will end up lining the pockets of the despicable cops who arrested the girl and the sweaty "lawyers" who, in cahoots with the police will secure her eventual release.

    awful island. awful people.

    Bit dumb to sign for a package addressed to someone else.

    More to the point, don't they ask for ID?

    No.
    Thai Post, Kerry Express, Flash Express, none of them ask for ID when delivering parcels at the right address.
    Sometimes they even "sign for you"

    She most likely is. She's probably decent looking and the incel beta cucks behind their computer screens and white knighting her with cash

    Its actually not an uncommon occurrence for white traveling women to get into the drug business.

    There was even an article about female traffickers

    https://dararehab.com/blog/female-drug-trafficking-australia-new-zealand/

    Specific to Oceania, the use of women traffickers has shown to hold steady or grow each year up to 2016. The rates of women traffickers is much higher in this area than in other countries, including the Americas which also have high rates.

    Don't be a white knighting beta cuck. There is no way that she was walked into this.

    It's just a drug crime. She is probably a fun loving nice person. She isn't being accused of murder or theft

    That's an angle being bantered about by Samui locals who know her, and her boyfriend (currently not in Thailand) who's being touted as a well known purveyor of pharmaceuticals on the Island. Let's see how this unfolds.

    No she's not. This is why women do so much trafficking these days. Because beta cucks in the legal system cut young women breaks. While the young men get shot.

    it will unfold when the thais either get or dont get their money.

    innocence or guilt has very little bearing on the outcome.

    Color me surprised. For people of this demographic , (I am one of them) drugs crimes carry zero moral guilt. It's just a matter of the risk. They even believe that they are doing good by moving drugs

    I don't necessarily blame or render the legal authorities in these cases beta cucks. They are stuck handing down light sentences to these young bimbos because of the beta cuck outcry form the public in the western nanny states.

    If they give these women the book, it will result in boycotts and endless bad press.

    Stickboy BKK is claiming that she confessed or something. There's more info in his article than the original. Apparently 4 additional boxes of narcotics was found at her residence

    Looks like you got cucked. Better luck next time.

    What inclined you to believe that this woman would never import some drugs from abroad for some extra dough ?

    They have drug detection at the central post office, probably picked up this package and then followed it to its destination.

    It wouldn't have been random. See who picks it up and then raid their pad to see if you can find other evidence is pretty standard.

    Not enough in this one report to say what they found.

    She hasn't been set up. Her hubby is some pharmaceuticals dealer that stops by once and awhile. Obviously being on Koh Samui , there's lots of demand for the partay drugs.

    These people are utter plonks. They should have sent the stuff to Bangkok and just handled the rest themselves. Direct to the island is a give away

    thank you, el chapo, for your intimate knowledge and expert opinion on the workings of the international drug trade, gleaned no doubt by your vast experience of buying $5 bags of low quality weed from the spotty youth who furtively hangs out in the shadows by your local pizza takeaway.

    Me and a friend had an online shop on Agora Market in 2013.

    Agora (online marketplace) - Wikipedia

    After Agora shut down , Alphabay became the top dog. The owner of Alphabay was a Canadian who lived in Thailand

    AlphaBay Market was an online darknet market which operated on an onion service of the Tor network. It was shut down after a law enforcement action as a part of Operation Bayonet against it (and also the Hansamarket) in the United States, Canada, and Thailand, reported 13 July 2017.[5] The alleged founder, Alexandre Cazes, a Canadian citizen born on 19 October 1991,[1][6] was found dead in his cell in Thailand several days after his arrest; suicide is suspected.
