Officials from Thalang District led by Thalang District Chief Adul Choothong and security officials led by Jiradet Burarak and Somporn Ontongin were conducting a Christmas and New Year security check at Ao Po pier.

As part of the security check officials requested all guides operating at the pier to produce their tour guide licenses following standard government policy for suppressing illegal tour guides.

Officials arrested Chinese man Yuanhua Li, 35, after he was unable to produce a valid license. He was taken to Thalang Police Station and charged with working as an illegal guide.

The arrest follows a protest by more than 30 Phuket tour guides, who are members of the Professional Tourist Guide Association of Thailand (PGA), at Promthep Cape on Dec 21, who were furious at the rapidly increasing numbers of illegal Chinese tour guides on the island. See story here.

A foreigner setting up a Thai company with 51% of shares in the names of Thai nominees to flout the DBD (Department of Business Development), is absolutely illegal and this is the main problem to reduce illegal foreigners as they get legal documents with rogue civil servants.

A thai company 'owned' by a foreigner ( Chinese or other) and 51% thai nominee is also a legal registered thai company.
And I doubt or illegal tour guides are officially employed by these companies.

Illegal foreign guides is just the tip of the iceberg and regular crackdowns on Thai companies owned by Chineses with the help of Thai nominees would limits all those illegal foreign tour guides and provide some clear relief on legally registered Thai companies.
