Australian Mother of 4 Arrested - Thai Jail

Ok so while we don't know all the details and she may well have been abusive

BUT i can tell you this from talking to the locals that the Thai police are corrupt and "typically" do things like this.

How can they hold a mother of 4 away from her chn and have her possiblly serve a term of 5 yrs in jail for "petty" theft...

This is disgraceful and I really do hope the embassy is doing all it can. But a lesson to all of us who travel - you can never be to careful.

and we head to Thailand in less than a month...
