Naked Farrang Chick Riding Around Soi Nana, #Bangkok

A photo of a naked white chick on the back of a motorbike on Soi 4 was doing the rounds yesterday on social media with many asking was it a fake.

 It turns out it was the real thing and today Facebook user Simon Richardson uploaded a video of the farrang frutloop zipping up and down Soi 4 naked as the day she was born on the back of a bike much to the delight of those working and drinking in the bars lining the street.

 No background story on what her naked bike ride or walkabout was all about but I’m sure the boys in brown from Lumpini wouldn’t mind taking her in for some questioning and unlikely to be in a hurry to get any answers.

Woman Arrested For Naked Bike Ride.

 Will we be seeing the naked biker in an ankle length skirt, long sleeves and turtleneck with the obligatory shades and baseball hat in the next day or two?
I doubt it unless the Thai media pick up the story.

Video 3

 Clips of the woman walking along Soi 3 naked much to the delight of those hanging around.

A woman was arrested in the early hours of Tuesday morning by officers from Lumpini Police Station after videos and photos of her naked in downtown Bangkok had been widely shared online over the past 48 hours.

The 20-year-old exhibitionist, identified as Nagwa Bassre, caused a stir on lower Sukhumvit on Sunday afternoon when she went for a walk up Soi 3 butt-naked before jumping on a motorbike taxi and going for a spin down Soi 4 much to the delight of daytime drinkers.

The Sukhumvit streaker first came to the attention of local cops when a photo of her on the back of a motorbike was widely shared on Sunday before video footage of her antics went viral on Monday.
It was initially thought the naked farrang chick was a Russian hooker who had been plying her trade on Soi 3 but we now know that not to be the case following Miss Bassre’s arrest.
I don’t have any details on any charges or fines dished out by police but will update if that info becomes known.

Phone data leads to arrest Bangkok Bomber

NOTHING TO CHANCE: More than 100 police and military officers were involved in the arrest. 

 News > Security Phone data leads to bomb arrest Ball bearings and bomb-building equipment found in suspect's room.

A police source close to the investigation said the arrest of the foreign man, who is believed to be Turkish, came after investigators spent more than a week sifting through every mobile phone call made within the vicinity of the shrine around the time of the bombing on Aug 17. 

He said officers managed to identify three Turkish phone numbers which had activated international roaming services and were in use near the blast site.
.Police apparently traced one of those phone numbers to the suspect apprehended yesterday. Around 100 police and soldiers moved in to make the arrest around 3pm at the Pool Anant apartment building in Nong Chok district, in the city’s eastern outskirts.
.A military source said the suspect held a Turkish passport by the name of Adem Karadag, 28, although the document was later found to be fake.
.A large quantity of bomb-making materials and equipment which allegedly belong to the suspect were seized from his rented room.

No need to worry says #Bangkok Immigration Commander.

He confirmed that foreign tourists and expats do not need to carry their passports with them at all times.

He said that tourists can of course leave their passports locked in their hotel safe and enjoy their holiday in Thailand without worrying about the need to carry their original passport.

Deputy Commander Voravat also said that for expats living here, a Thai driving license or photocopy of your passport can be used as a form of identification.

However, if Immigration Police suspect an individual to be overstaying in Thailand or being involved in illegal activity, then the individual would be required to produce their original passport promptly.

Deputy Commander Voravat referred to Section 58, which reads as follows:

Any alien who has no lawful document for entering the Kingdom under section 12(1);….under this Act; and has no identification in accordance with the Law on Alien registration, is considered to have entered the Kingdom in violation of the Act.

Entering or staying in Thailand without holding a valid passport and visa/extension is subject a fine and possible prison sentence.
“Making all foreigners in Thailand carry their original passports with them would be very difficult.”
“It’s about being reasonable and using common sense”

“But if we think a foreigner is involved in illegal activity then we will of course need to see their original passport, this is normal”, said Deputy Commander Voravat.

Deputy Commander Voravat is eager to avoid further misunderstandings and miscommunication regarding immigration matters and is happy to work with in the future in order to provide correct information to foreign tourists and the wider expat community in Thailand. thanks  Deputy Commander Voravat for his interview and taking time to clarify the situation.

The idea of foreigners being able to get a copy of their passport officially stamped by Immigration is currently not an option. However, it is always a good idea to have a copy of your passport with you at all times while in Thailand.
