Cambodian beggars removed from the streets of Pattaya, for now


Recommended Posts

Business as usual






On Monday morning Chonburi Immigration officers launched a co-ordinated sweep of the streets of Pattaya and arrested 50 persons allegedly engaged in the begging for money industry. All 50 were identified as Cambodian illegals. The 50, nine males, 18 females, and 23 very young children, were taken to the front of the Chonburi Immigration offices in Jomtien Soi 5 where they were paraded before the media. Police Colonel Choosuk, the Superintendent of Chonburi Immigration, led the press conference and he said the Cambodian illegals would be sent back across the border. He said that if anyone happened to see illegal beggars on the streets they should call Immigration officers to come and take them away. Despite the cries of the young children assembled behind him, Colonel Choosuk was able to make his point forcefully, saying that Pattaya is now a world-class tourist destination and the sight of Cambodian beggars on the streets is a blot on the landscape. After the press conference was completed, the 50 Cambodians were loaded onto a prison truck and taken away.

Yea especially the little kids I feel bad. Sometimes I give them something though I know I shouldn't. Some of the bar girls I've been with also give beggars money.


But it makes me laugh with this 'show of force' to 'clean up the image' of Pattaya as a 'world class destination' garbage. Just do these inconsequential and minimal things for show while allowing things like jet ski scammers to exist.
