Expats in Thailand


A recent article about the activities of an expat who has joined the Thai Tourist Police as a volunteer has gone viral on the internet. Steve Saunders, a Chiangmai expat who is “now dedicating his life to helping tourists in distress or rather foreigners in need.”

For whatever reason, a number of expats seem to get a kick out of donning the uniform, which they have to pay for themselves. They have no power of arrest and carry no arms. Maybe it is a macho thing for some expats but many volunteers do a sterling job assisting tourists and liaising with local police when foreigners have problems.

“Good old Steve has joined the Foreign Police Volunteers in Chiang Mai bless his cotton socks.

“He’s the man for foreigners to go to if foreigners are in need of say – a fix.

“Steve was formerly known as the Clenbutoral King.

“Clenbutoral? That is the miracle slimming drug that was once high in demand from large men and ladies and also body builders.

“In Britain it is illegal. Not only is it illegal to give to humans – it is also illegal to give it to animals.

“Clenbuterol is a steroid-like chemical, initially developed to alleviate asthma symptoms in horses by relaxing the muscles in the airways.

“Its stimulant effect on the heart and central nervous system mimics the actions of adrenalin or amphetamines, and it is also used in animals as a partitioning agent – a substance that increases lean muscle mass and reduces fat deposits, wrote the Health and Family correspondent of the Independent in the UK

“Saunders, who also runs Chiang Mai Estate Agents, sold the drug through two websites – and registered to him at 198 London Road, Brandon, Suffolk,IP27 0LP, but giving a Thai mobile phone number

“It seems that although the Chinese announced they had banned it – they are actually the world leaders in producing it. Moreover, Saunders bought in from China and repackaged in Thailand to send to Europe, Australia, and the US.

Joining the Thai police in a volunteer capacity will give him a ready-made market, as the following pic shows.
