Swiss Man Who Kicked Thai Female Doctor Has Visa Revoked

The Swiss man who allegedly kicked a Thai woman on a beach near his Phuket property has had his visa canceled by Thailand’s Immigration Bureau for threatening society.

Pol Maj Gen Songprote Sirisukha, commander of Immigration Division 6, which oversees the South, signed an order on Wednesday night to revoke Urs Fehr’s visa, also known as David, based on provincial hall and Phuket immigration office proposals, Pol Col Parinya Klinkaysorn, deputy bureau spokesman, said Thursday.

According to the Bangkok Post, immigration police commander, Mr. Fehr’s behavior threatened social peace, Pol Col. Parinya said. The official said Phuket immigration police will detain him but he may request a temporary release to defend himself in the physical assault case.

On February 24, 45-year-old Elephant Sanctuary Park Co. managing director Mr. Fehr allegedly kicked the back of 26-year-old Dibuk Hospital doctor Dr. Thandao Chandam when she was sitting on steps to the Yamu beach with her friend to observe the full moon near his villa in Thalang district.

According to reports, Mr. Fehr and his Thai wife thought the pair were intruders. However, officials later acknowledged that the beach steps were illegally placed on public seashore land.

Mrs. Fehr and Mr. Fehr apologized. The Swiss said he slipped while approaching the doctor, not kicking her.

On Wednesday, Phuket police chief Pol Maj Gen Sinlert Sukhum accused Mr. Fehr with bodily and mental abuse and interrogated witnesses. He said Phuket prosecutors should hear the case this week.

Pol Maj Gen Sinlert said Mr. Fehr will also face charges for driving against an ambulance.

According to Phuket livestock development chief Suthas Niyomthai, 14 elephants at Mr. Fehr’s Elephant Sanctuary Park were healthy and registered. Assistant chief of Thalang district Wisut Romin said local revenue officials had not checked the place’s activities.
