  10. and now this: Safe passage to Canada sought for Thai witness of Pai killing The family of 24-year-old Leo Del Pinto, who was shot dead by a Thai policeman in Pai has called on the Canadian government to give safe passage to Carly Reisig and her Thai boyfriend, as they claim they fear for their lives. In a statement issued through their spokesman Ross Fortune in Calgary the family complained that neither the Canadian or Thai Governments have provided answers to what happened to Leo, 24, from Calgary and Carly Reisig, 24, of Chilliwack, British Columbia early last Sunday morning. "Carly and her Thai boyfriend are in fear for their lives and feel they require help from the Canadian government. The couple have been threatened that it is not safe for them to return to their residence in Pai as the police officer responsible is still out on bail. "The Canadian Government has not assigned anyone to watch over and protect Carly and her boyfriend at this point in time. This is of great concern to the Del Pinto family as Carly and her boyfriend are the only two reliable witnesses to the murder of Del Pinto. "Carly communicated that she and her boyfriend are attempting to return to Canada, where they will feel safer in continuing their pursuit of justice for Leo. This will require special accommodations by the government as her boyfriend is a Thai citizen. The Del Pinto family supports the decision for Carly to return to Canada and asks that the government expedites this process as quickly as possible so that Carly and her boyfriend can be in a safe environment." Nobody in Pai has come forward to support Carly's claim that Sergeant Uthai Dechawiwat made an unprovoked attack on her and Leo and then deliberately shot Leo in the head, and later on the ground in the heart, before turning his gun on her. Instead she has been called a 'troublemaker' who caused the incident by hitting the policeman. Her Thai boyfriend Rattaporn Varawadee has remained by her bedside in Chiang Mai Ram hospital and has been careful to say little apart from "Nothing any of us did justifies the policeman pulling his gun and shooting." Carly Reisig has insisted she will return for the trial of Sergeant Dechawiwat out of a Canadian Government 'Victims of Crime' fund. Yesterday she made an anxious call to Canada saying the police wanted to take her out of Chiang Mai back to Pai. Andrew Drummond Special to the Nation
  11. http://www.nationmultimedia.com/2007/12/22/headlines/headlines_30059922.php the former TAT governor! she is also a leading politican in Pua Pandin party
  12. now THIS statement surprises me! for how long are you resident? as i said those people know pretty well their pride. i never get approached and i am also pretty often in those areas where they operate. even touts usually do not approach me; and two words in thai is enough to get them run off! do you look like a choirboy?
  13. the farang beggar is a plant of the nationalistic PPP so that they can claim that there are no foreign quality tourists in lower Sukhumvit, which is of course absolutely true! NO quality tourist stays at lower Sukhumvit! that's why all the gem scammers are at locations, where the real quality tourists stay like Erawan, Silom, around Oriental/Shangrila, Grand Palace area and not at lower Sukhumvit! and that's why a lot of our fellow board members are not at all affected by those scammers and therefore give a shit as they never make it outside their lower Sukhumvit Ghetto! the scammers for the big money of the quality tourists and the beggars for the coins of the lower Sukhumvit tourists! that's the real Thai scheme! comprende?
  14. iuytrede thanks for your insight: quidquid latine dictum sit, altum videtur! your statement remembers me about the feelings, many of us living in Thailand sometimes have: odi et amo quare id faciam fortasse requiris nescio sed fieri sentio et excrucior everywhere in the world people try to exploit other people due to one reason: Radix malorum est cupiditas! the OP just tried to help others to avoid to become victims: praemonitus praemanitus! but then we have to realize that this is not our country: Si fueris Romae, Romano vivito more, si fueris alibi, vivito sicut ibi! after reading through this thread i can only say: Amici, diem perdidi!
  15. i have made opposite experiences! from the 100+ people who visited me in Thailand (most are also well off professionals; many came with whole families) the big majority was very satisfied and keep coming back!
  16. really? the tourist statistics give a different picture! or are they also faked like the gems?
  17. good work clubsiam! unfortunately it will have no impact! airport and erawan are just two main locations. around Grand Palace is also a gang and i am sure there are many more places. and they know very well their prey! i was not approached anymore for years!
  18. give me a break! one million baht plus invested in a shack, which everyone knew, that it will not last long? such stupid investors deserve this fate!
  19. murder? probably you are mixing this up! Chuwit is responsible that we have now at least one nice and beautyful park instead of more seedy and ugly bar shacks in lower Suk! i will give him the vote for next PM!
  20. wouldn't be so confident in that! - test does not show positive during first 1-6 months after infection, but you can infect others - high failure rate of tests - to exclude with high security you have to do several different tests
  21. http://qa.hopkins-aids.org/forum/recentquestions no, also this one does not work!
  22. you are right! CD4 of a non infected, healthy person is between 600 - 1200 450 in average must be some misunderstanding. i do not think there can be a reasonable statement about a average value of a HIV+ person. CD4 decreases over time, for some faster, for others slowly but there can also be up's and down's. once you take medication CD4 increases significantly. some people with very low CD4 show no symptoms of AIDS, others with higher values show already symtoms
