Foreign workers called in for street brawl in Soi Sansabai

Foreign workers called in for street brawl in Soi Sansabai

PHUKET: Three foreigners have been called in for engaging in a street brawl in Soi Sansabai early this morning (Mar 27).

A video showing the brawl has already been posted on social media. The video shows three foreign men attacking three tourists, with one of the foreigners using what appears to be an aluminium bar, reports the government operated Phuket Info Center.

Police were called to the scene, a streetside restaurant in Soi Sansabai, located off the inland end of Bangla Rd, at 12:50am, said the report by police.

When the officers arrived only three people involved in the brawl were still there: Jordanian national Mohammad Jehad Mohammad Alomari and Egyptian national Abdelrahman Mohamed Ahmed Elfawal, both 25 years old; and Mr Wai Lu Soe  (nationality not given).

All three men worked for the Atlas restaurant, where the fight started.

The report said that five foreign tourists who were drunk had ordered food at the restaurant, and told the staff to hurry up. The staff told the group they had to wait their turn. 

Unhappy with the response, one of the drunken group reportedly threw a bottle of water into the restaurant’s serving area, sparking a heavy handed response from the staff.

At last report, police have located the tourists involved and called them to present themselves to police in order to give a statement recording their version of events.

No moaning, not upsetting, not judging the action of the 3 foreign workers ( that is for police to handle). Just questioning in what capacity they work in that restaurant? What visa they have? Are these jobs not reserved for Thai nationals?

Kamala Pete, I will comment on the story. Here’s my comment: These kinds of stories are very upsetting to JohnC and Kurt.

@KamalaPete     Wondering what's more tiresome ? A reaction on comments or the  moaning about everything all day,every day .

Trolling again PK! I wonder if you'll ever comment on a story, rather than indulge in petty ad hominem attacks. Very tiresome.

Guess who's waited all night to comment (to Thailand's disfavour of course) on this scuffle? Yep, you did it!

Perhaps the 3 foreigners are given a 1 year study visa for learning Thai cooking? With option to renew visa later for 1 more year?   :-)   Sure, after the brawl the Patong police checked their passports ( info provided to newspaper editorial staff) and visas, right?

JohnC | 28 March 2023 - 09:00:24

The big question is, what are 3 foreigners from 3 different countries doing working in a local restaurant? What skills have they got that Thais haven't that got them work permits? They are all in plain clothes, no uniforms or cook's outfits. Wait, don't tell me. Of course, restaurant security to keep out the riff raff. What a joke!
