Thai Police Admit Demanding Money From Taiwanese Actress

(CTN NEWS) – BANGKOK – The obsessive drama between a Taiwanese actress and the “bastard police,” accused of demanding 27,000 baht, continues. The Royal Thai Police (RTP) are revealed to be liars in the most recent episode of the gripping thriller.

An RTP squad leader from Huay Kwang Police Station in Bangkok revealed today that he did extort 27,000 baht from the Taiwanese actress An Yu-Qing late last week despite the RTP’s denials.

Soon, more information will be disclosed.

On January 4, An and her female companions were extorted 27,000 baht by the RTP, whom she termed the “bastard cops,” according to a post she made on her Instagram account.

The travel blogger translated and shared her experience on the Facebook group Hello Taiwan, and it quickly went viral on Thai social media. I am Coming! (หนีห่าวไต้หวัน ฉันมาแล้ว).

The Metropolitan Police Bureau-led RTP investigated the incident and refuted all accusations on Friday, January 27. According to the officers, the Taiwanese party was traveling with illicit vaporizers and did not have passports.

Samroeng Suanthong, the commissioner of the Metropolitan Police Bureau, revealed that seven officers from the Huay Kwang Police Station were in charge of running the checkpoint.

The cops discovered that the actress was drunk and was traveling without a passport after asking the Grab car carrying the Taiwanese visitors to stop.

Officers discovered. An had a vaporizer and informed her that it was prohibited in Thailand. According to Somroeng, the language barrier made it impossible for the police and tourists to communicate.

The tourists had poor English and Thai communication skills. The officers later released the Taiwanese group, who added that they had not asked for any money.

The Taiwanese actress, who was upset, accused the RTP of lying on her Instagram page. She stated:

“I wasn’t even buzzed! Once I’ve finished speaking with Interpol, I’ll let you all know once more. Thai authorities are unjust. They blamed me so they could clean up. It’s all about what they get to keep! Put an end to your shenanigans!

According to the most recent Matichon article, a police officer lied, as claimed by a Taiwanese actress.

One of the six officers involved, according to Metropolitan Police Bureau Commissioner Nithi Saengsawang, acknowledged attempting to solicit money from the actress.

The Huay Kwang Police Station’s squad leader is the officer in question. Today should bring further updates according to expectations.

The Bangkok Police denied claims that they forced a well-known Taiwanese actress and her friends to pay 27,000 Baht in ransom.

The actress was reportedly carrying an illegal vaporizer, was intoxicated, and lacked a passport, according to the police.

The Perfect Girl actress (An Yu-Qing), better known as Charlene An, blogged about her horrific vacation to Thailand on social media Wednesday, warning visitors that the Land of Smiles would not make them smile.

A warned foreign visitors visiting the country to be wary of Thailand’s “bastard police” after she said she was forced to pay 27,000 baht under false allegations.

Police retaliated, denying that they had demanded money from the 32-year-old. They claimed that because she was intoxicated and had an unlawful vaporizer in her luggage, they released her with a warning.

Six policemen from the Huai Khwang Station were stationed at the checkpoint as part of routine operations to maintain the safety of the new year vacation, according to Pol Maj Gen Samroeng Suanthong,

Deputy Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police Bureau, who spoke to Thai media last night.

Around one in the morning on January 4, the officers pulled over the cab carrying the Taiwanese actress and her pals, and they conducted a routine search for illegal items by protocol.

“The actress didn’t have a passport and seemed drunk.”

“Police had trouble communicating with the group since they spoke Chinese while the cops were gesturing and using English.

The actress informed the authorities that she would ask a friend to bring her passport to the checkpoint. After more than an hour of waiting, nobody arrived.

Both parties felt dissatisfied and irritated with one another due to communication problems.

“When the police asked the tourists to unzip their bags, they discovered an actress’s vaporizer. The officers informed her that Thailand does not allow such e-cigarette gadgets.

Finally, as planned, the police officers had to relocate their roadblock. No extortion was reported, and they did not take legal action against the actress’ group.

Authorities halted the taxi at the checkpoint, and video from nearby security cameras revealed that no one was taken from the checkpoint to a desolate alley to beg for money.

Police intend to contact the cab driver and collect information to demonstrate their innocence.

Thailand has outlawed e-cigarettes, vapes, and juice refills since 2014.

There are many sanctions, but being found vaping or even possessing an e-cigarette could result in a fine of up to 30,000 baht and a 10-year jail term.

If this is the law in Thailand, it is strange that the authorities did not fine the actress or perhaps send her to jail.
Foreign travellers to Thailand were forewarned by a well-known Taiwanese actress to beware of the country’s “bastard police”!

The actress said on social media that while she and her companions were on vacation in Thailand at the beginning of this month, the Royal Thai Police (RTP) extorted 27,000 baht from them on fictitious, fabricated allegations.

The Hello Taiwan! Facebook page in Thai. I’m coming! An Yu-Qing, commonly known as Charlene An, the actress from The Perfect Girl, had her Instagram postings translated and shared yesterday.

After arriving home from Thailand, the 32-year-old movie star recounted her negative experiences on Instagram. A said…

On January 4, on Wednesday, it happened to me. My buddies and I were taking a taxi to our hotel at around one in the morning. We had to stop, the checkpoint police ordered. They checked us, the car, and our bags.

They continued demanding to check our visas because they couldn’t find anything illegal on us. They accepted my VOA (visa on arrival), which was legitimately issued at the airport.

The authorities wouldn’t allow me enter, claiming that my visa was invalid. They advised me to carry the printed visa bearing an official departmental stamp. They made every effort to falsely accuse me.

A friend of An’s recorded films as proof, but the police apprehended her and told her to remove the recordings.

The women were brought to a police station but were not given access to a seat. Then, acting like thugs, they yelled at the women, reprimanded them, terrified the group, and demanded an explanation for something they had not done.

An eventually pleaded with the police to let her go and attempted to apologize in Thai, but it was unsuccessful. She stated:

I came close to bowing before them. I pleaded with them and took all action I could. Two hours later, the police led me to a blind location without CCTV cameras and informed me that…

“To be free, everyone must pay 27,000 baht.”

An paid for her to leave their misery behind. After they turned over the cash, the cops called a taxi and released them.

As she left the police station, the movie actress also saw a group of five Korean women being intimidated. She stated:

Are these corrupt police targeting Asian tourists?

An declared it to be the worst experience of her life and vowed never to return to Thailand. She stated:

Bangkok is awful! Bye!”

The Facebook group also included a translation of an interview with a local Taiwanese news outlet. A said…

“I want to caution all Taiwanese traveling to Thailand not to bring too much cash. The cops will search your wallets and make a bogus arrest to attempt to get your cash.”

The RTP is a controversial topic in Thailand regarding corruption and money extortion involving international tourists.

There has been no resolution to the recent controversy around the VIP packages and fast passes provided to Chinese visitors.

The year hasn’t even been going on for a month already. The RTP is in serious trouble.
