Thanks Thaiga.  What a character.  His lemonade salary as an English teacher would not support a champagne lifestyle so he took to trafficking women and drugs.

This reminds me of a story from 2011, when the Swiss Korat expat Peter B., 47 at the time, was caught with 4 kg cocaine at Phuket airport. Haven't heard about him since.

Read the old story at

The case had been discussed (in German) in that thread

No sympathy whatever.  He knew the rules. You just don’t break them in a place like Saudi.

Crazy world we live in, this is the only vid in this thread youtube hasn't made - Video unavailable :-[

A young journalist is in Bangkok, where the darkest side of Asia and western capitalism collide in spectacular fashion. The city delivers a terrifying lesson. It's impossible to get that close to a big story without becoming a part of it.
