Koh Phangan cop accused of assault, drug extortion against tourists

Our neighbors to the West... many of us have a love for Thailand and it's certainly got plenty to talk about, so lets talk about it here so that it doesn't overwhelm our regular Cambodia sections.

Ain't that the truth. While I quit the "funland" activities 4-5 years ago, the decline in fun has been even more steep.

Back on topic: Thai police extortion of tourists.
Unfortunately, Thai police have still not managed to locate the policeman involved in the OP drug extortion racket... despite having his name, rank, address and phone number.
More than three weeks after a Russian couple filed a report they were assaulted, robbed and held against their will on Koh Phangan by a group of men, including a policeman, the rogue cop is still on the run.

Pol Snr Sgt Maj Suriyan Ranjuan, 50, of Koh Phangan police station, is accused of commuting similar offenses in the past and faces losing his job with the RTP if found guilty.

Anthon Lobanov, 36, and his wife, Ekaterina Lobanova, 35, filed a report with police on Wednesday 1st March with Koh Samui provincial court issuing warrants for the arrest of five men suspecting of being involved in the shakedown the same day...

Yea, i just did some research into the 'Dark side', but it seems now to be nothing special compared to what it might have in the past been. Now according to what i read, it's just a place to live cos it's cheaper, but apparently a bit boring....Unless wot i read was tripe, that is....

:popcorn:
been to the dark side a few times over the past year,
first bar we went to there was 4-5 blokes getting noshed off in full view
tbh most bars we went in a girl would get my cock out and would try sicking it in her mouth for a drink, fair trade tbh lol
its a nice change of scenery from the more hectic beach side

a similar story happened to a friend of mine about 4 years ago on khao san road, some young australian guy offered my mate some weed, as soon as it changed hands the cops were already there and was a set up, think they took my mates laptop and some money as "payment"
