    • charlie commented : Expats, welcome to Phuket Between the seizure of land and houses belonging to foreign and public flagrant denunciation according to Phuket Gazette articles, we will have to be more clever to survive in Thailand because witch-hunting game is open by these times of lean incomes. The expats who have put their shares of ownership of houses, lands, boats or companies in Thailand in the names of their Thai spouses, Thai nominees or Thai partners (lawyers, accounting offices, friends, etc ...) will have a lot of concern if the Thai administration decides to strengthen the existing laws in favor of Thai people following complaints from unscrupulous Thai opportunist investors who would like to acquire those foreign assets without too much effort.

Total lawlessness replaced what had been, up to then, a reasonably controlled situation. The chaos created by the "Wave" and the immediate reduction in tourist numbers meant that all tourists (and Expats choosing to stay there) became fair game for Thais (including the police) living in lean times.
