Tourists, investors and migrant workers are the core groups Thai security authorities want to better monitor with the help of the new database system, Gen Kongcheep said.

This is part of the government’s internal security reform and measures to prevent and resolve transnational crimes and terrorism, Lt Gen Kongcheep explained yesterday (May 16) after a meeting of the government’s fifth pubic administration reform steering committee, chaired by Deputy Prime Minister and Defence Minister Gen Prawit Wongsuwon.

The Ministry of Digital Economy and Society is advising the team developing the database to ensure it will be linked to other systems containing information about foreigners to better keep tabs on them from when they enter Thailand until they leave the country, he said.

While waiting for the new database to be completed, law enforcement authorities have been assigned to step up crackdowns on foreigners staying illegally in Thailand, he said.

The Interior Ministry, Tourism and Sports Ministry and Social Development and Human Security Ministry are being assigned to carry out a survey on where foreigners are staying and keep a record of them, he said.

Gen Prawit said the government will no longer tolerate any form of human trafficking, Gen Kongcheep said.

"Good guys in, bad guys out".
Yet, they still insist on treating the "good guys" like "bad guys".

Great post!
It's always interesting to learn of redundant laws and programs when the current ones aren't followed or used.

Someone should tell them that immigration already keeps this "database".  I wonder how much government funding they'll be getting to cut-and-paste a link to this existing data.  Still, at least they get some publicity out of it. Face, face, face :-)
