Dänische Botschaft warnt vor King Power Dutyfree


Nach dem die britsche Botschaft nach einem ähnlichen Vorfall im Juni Passagiere am Suvarnabhumi-Flughafen vor Korruption warnt, hat jetzt auch die dänische Botschaft eine Warnung vor den King-Power-Dutyfree-Läden im Flughafen herausgegben.


Eine dänische Frau sei beschuldigt worden, versucht zu haben, einen Lippenstift o.ä. zu klauen. Nach dem Bericht sei sie mit dem Lippenstift nur über die unsichtbare "Grenze" des Geschäfts gegangen, um ihn einer anderer Passagierin zu zeigen. Vorbei selbst das noch nicht mal klar sei.


Die Polizisten und ein eilig herbeigezogener Übersetzter hätten sie bedrängt, 65.000 DKR (etwa 8.700 EUR) für deren "Hilfe" zu bezahlen. Andernfalls sei ihr eine baldige Überstellung ins Bangkok Hilton in Aussicht gestellt worden, wo sie erstmal zwei Monate verbringen müsste, bevor ihr Fall überhaupt behandelt würde.

Danes warned against airport police in Bangkok


Published 20.07.09 kl. 14:01 (GMT+1)


Be careful if you shop in stores in the international airport in Bangkok. You risk being arrested and charged of corruption of Thai airport officials.


That is the warning from the Danish Embassy in Bangkok, who knows a young Danish woman who recently had problems at the airport.


"Be careful with the stores where there is open space, and it seems that you can freely move around," says Mads Beyer, who is deputy head of the embassy in Bangkok, to DR News.



Claims for money



He says that the woman had taken a mascara or lipstick, and would show it to a fellow passager, who was just nearby. Without knowing it the unfortunate woman crossed a shop invisible border and was snatched by the police.


"The police who carried out the arrest, and a translator seemed very aggressive and let know that they must have a lot of money to help," says Mads Beyer, adding that the police clearly expresses that it can be a lengthy and difficult process if you do not choose to pay, says deputy head of DR News.


The embassy does not want to give details about the case, but according to BBC News has more visitors every month problems with the police at the airport.


Two British passengers were among others threatened that they would be thrown directly in the notorious Bangkok Hilton prison, where they had to wait two months before the case was handled, if they did not pay 65,000 kroner to the police and an interpreter to get " help "in this case ..

Woman convicted of shoplifting


The Danish woman who was taken with makeup in hand, was convicted of shoplifting.


The embassy does not want to say hviken punishment she received, but Mads Beyer says that the typical punishment is a fine of 300-400 Danish kroner, and that it could two years of conditional imprisonment.


Beyer urges people first and foremost to take care not to cross a border store with something in his hand. Will is taken, the tourists refuse to give in to threats from the police, whose officers require bribes.


- If people in trouble, it would be a good idea to contact the embassy. We are available to help when there are unpleasant things, "says Mads Beyer.


- I can not guarantee that you do not get an unpleasant experience and a fright. But we are in a legal community, which ceteris paribus will have a trial. And we urge them to not be true to help to contact his embassy.


The Danish Embassy will now make contact with embassies from other EU countries to see how big the problem is and what we might do about it

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
