    Phuket school probe into illegally hiring foreign teachers will take time

    PHUKET: Chalong Police have yet to begin their investigation into an international primary school in Rawai for allegedly hiring foreigners illegally to work as teachers, the leading investigator in the case has told The Phuket News.

    Chalong Police were requested to investigate Palm House International School for possible illegal hiring practices after two British nationals were arrested at the school on Nov 4 by officers from Phuket Immigration.


    Capt Somkiet Sarasin of the Chalong Police, the leading investigator in the case, told The Phuket News yesterday (Nov 23) that the two Brits were both informed that police were processing a charge of working illegally in the country against them.

    A damning response.

    The school posted a notice on its Facebook page yesterday, announcing:
    A short note to our parents.
    It is important to both myself and the school that you as parents are aware of the recent disruptions to the school and not be subject to wild rumours.
    As you have no doubt heard we had a visit from immigration on Wednesday, unfortunately, this led to two of our teachers being interviewed for visa reasons. With all the Covid disruptions to border control and a misunderstanding regarding visas, this brought about a hiccup in our records. However, we are interviewing a potential new director on Friday, who will ensure that this type of misunderstanding never occurs again.
    Yes, it has been a disruptive couple of days for both students and teachers which is truly unfortunate, these types of incidents are a part of life and we will deal with them.
    Moving forward we will grow and strengthen our wonderful school, this includes opening the PIP preschool for 3-5 year olds
    Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to furnishing your children with the quality education they deserve, the education we can provide.
