OK Roger, Yes she did brilliant job.  I hope all the publicity helps to drive reform in Saudi Arabia although I somehow doubt it.  It would be much better if children did not feel the need to flee their own country.  I think she will be much better in Canada than Australia.  The Australian view of sophisticated sexual foreplay: “Brace yerself Sheila.” Could have been the case of out of the Saudi frying pan and into the fire.

Three teens killed, three others injured in Roi Et road accident

Police are searching for a senior policeman in Roi Et after his car hit two motorcycles and killed three teenagers and injured three others in Thawat Bur district early on Saturday.

Pol Lt Col Somsak Ketpibul, deputy commander of Thawat Buri police said the accident happened on the district bypass road in front of the Piyabodin housing estate.

Somsak said the senior officer's black BMW hit two motorcycles that were driving against traffic and each motorcycle had two pillion riders.

He said a 14-year-old girl and two 14-year-old boys died at the Roi Et Hospital while three other teenagers were severely injured.

He said the driver of the BMW fled the scene.

Somsak said the BMW car belongs to a senior police officer in Roi Et. He declined to identify the officer pending a summons for questioning and formal charges.

The Nation

If the driver as a senior police officer fled the scene, there must have been more to it than overloaded motorcycles driving in the wrong direction. Where did they drive? On the shoulder? How drunk was that police officer, that he might have steered into motorcycles driving on the shoulder??

TT and Johnnie. Rahaf al-Qunun. 40 seconds into the BBC's 'From Our Own Correspondent', a very interesting report from Johnathan Head about just how the Tweets and The Media helped her defy the Saudi and Thai authorities . . . Good luck to her in Canada and to the tens of thousands of young Saudi women who might feel the same.

The German newspaper ZEIT wrote on its site, that not only her passport was taken away from her in Bangkok, but also that Australia had canceled her visa. Looks like there are still a lot of questions to answer by the Thais and the Australians!

Safely in Toronto. Good to see her smiling.  It might be a shock for her when she steps outside the airport as it is around -6C.

I hope the young lady will be on her way to Australia early next week.

No, she's on the way to Canada right now, where they offered her asylum.

Thanks Thaiga. So an 'Income letter' will be accepted by ImmiG, but surely that's only for those Nationals whose Embassies will still issue the letter, eg Norway, Holland. But UK, USA, Australia Nationals, will need to give evidence of B40K/B65K pm coming into a Thai Bank from overseas? (excepting now, 'Married' visa evidence can be a tax receipt).

The letter says that ImmiG have 'adjusted the requirements' - does that mean that they are asking the UK and USA Embassies now for less ? So those Embassies may be announcing the resumption of 'Income Letters' soon?

(Re. the 'Married' visa, I see a 'personal income tax form with receipt' is added as 'evidence' - but not for 'retirement' visa ?)

Note on Line 6, to proceed in . . . inconsistent procedures ?? Maybe that's consistent or in consistent procedures?

Thanks for the info.

there u go

FINALLY! It's Official! Immigration WILL accept proof of income for the retirement visa







Thanks to thaivisa.com
