Phuket Callers Given Access to Corruption Hotlines

Friday, November 9, 2012
PHUKET: Officials on Phuket are now promoting two new four-digit numbers that provide access to a corruption hotline.

Callers to 1205 or 1206 are put through to the national office of the Public Sector Anti-Corruption Commission in Nonthaburi province, across the river from Bangkok.

The number is accessible in person Monday to Friday from 8am to 5pm. Callers outside those hours may use the recorded message service.

A team of investigators is on standby to assess the nature of the calls to determine whether action is required.

People who speak only English are advised to call the telephone numbers of the Anti-Corruption Commission in Surat Thani, where Region 8 headquarters oversees Phuket, Chumporn, Surat Thani, Phang Nga, Ranong, Nakkoon Si Thammarat and Krabi.

The telephone numbers are 077 206184 or 077 207185.

Anonymous complaints possible?

The Anti-Corruption Commission in Surat Thani covers Chumporn whose police regularly stop vehicles and fine the drivers for "staying in the outside lane too long", when they know perfectly well that the inside lane is pot-holed and ruined by the heavy trucks.

Can I complain about that?

@ Buster

I was pulled over for the very same reason and asked to pay Bt 1000. However I could see that the Thai driver stopped in front of me didn't have to pay anything and pointed this out to the officer.

He got upset but I insisted on either being treated the same way or issuing a receipt if I have to pay.

He told me to p**s off and so I did, paying nothing.

stay to the left when driving, simple. too many selfish people here, especially on the roads.
If someone is overtaking move left. Its not difficult and has nothing to do with ego getting passed.

Perhaps you thought you were commenting on another article, jimmy.


@ Jimmy

You obviously have no idea of what we are talking about.

That particular stretch of road has the left lane so badly damaged by heavy trucks that driving on it will shake your car apart. Any speed in excess of 50 kph is too much to bear.

Do your homework before you start pointing fingers at others, mmkey ?
