Thank you to Chiang Mai Mail reader

Thank you to Chiang Mai Mail reader

Dear Editor,

I would like to thank the reader who took so much trouble to try and get the traffic light problem on both ends of the Nawarat Bridge fixed.

That was what you might call over and above the call of duty, there are not many people who would do all that to help their fellow motorists and motorcyclists. Well done and thanks again, let’s hope something will be done soon.

I would contribute to new light globes if that’s all it needs!

Yours sincerely,
Delboy

 

Defrauded writes back

Dear Editor

I am ‘Mr. Defrauded’ and I intentionally invited the police to respond directly to the Chiang Mai Mail, not me, thinking it more likely to elicit a reply. I respectfully thank the police for replying. I fully accept that the recovery of money, being debt, loans, etc, is a civil case.

However, the action of obtaining that money by intentional lies and deceit is in any other country ‘intent to defraud’ and ‘obtaining monies by deceit’ and a criminal offence under the jurisdiction of the police and criminal courts. I am surprised if this is not the case in Thailand. Surely, forged documents or money are all in the same family of crimes. Such stories of fraud get retold and undermine the confidence of foreigners to make genuine investments here to the benefit of Thai nationals at all levels.

Mr. ‘Defrauded’


Who kicked over the beehive?

Dear Editor

These plastic Vuvuzelas are ruining the World Cup games for just about everyone including the players. FIFA’s Sepp Blatter and Rich Mkhonda are fiercely defending these plastic abominations on the grounds that they are a part of the African Culture and everyone should embrace and respect them. I hope they feel same way when Australia hosts the Tournament . i can’t wait to see them “embracing” the Australian culture when the Aussie fans are blasting away on six foot long plastic “Didgeridoos”.Hey stop complaining, it’s the Culture!
