Russian woman, 20, charged in Phuket for toilet bleaching dead corals

PHUKET: A 20-year-old Russian woman faces a fine of up to B20,000 or up to a year in jail, or both, after a neighbour reported seeing her literally trying to bleach pieces of coral with toilet bleach at her rented bungalow in Karon on Wednesday (Jan 31).

The woman, Liliya Karmanova, was arrested yesterday (Feb 1) and is now being detained at the holding cells at Phuket Provincial Court, Capt Channarong Prakongkue of the Karon Police told The Phuket News this afternoon.

Ms Karmonva was arrested after a warrant was issued, and subsequently served by the Karon Police, explained Nares Choopueng from the Department of Marine and Coastal Resources (DMCR) Phuket office.

“The DMCR Phuket office received a tip-off from a neighbour at about midday on Wednesday (Jan 31), reporting that a Russian woman was using pink Vixol (toilet bleach) to bleach pieces of coral at a bungalow in Karon,” he explained.

DMCR officers arrived at the bungalow to find that Ms Karmonva was not at home.

However, they did find pieces of corals still soaking in bleach, Mr Nares added.

“We brought the corals to the Karon Police as it is illegal to be in possession of any corals, and Capt Channarong filed a request for the Phuket Provincial Court to issue a warrant for her arrest,” Mr Nares added.

Capt Channarong declined to speculate whether Ms Karmonova faces deportation if found guilty of the charge against her.

“I can’t reveal any other details to the press. That is up to the court,” he said.

Always amazes me when the crazies complain bitterly that nothing appears to be done about the environment - fishing/coral degradation. When they do take action they complain. It's a case of officials being damned if they don't do something and damned if they do. If a concerned citizen complains, action has to be taken.

Is now a tip-off from a neighbor reason to get a warrant to invade a private house while the person is not home?

The massage of thai authorities to tip-off should be concentrated on child molesters, school head masters, drugs lords, corrupt thai officials, wrong tuk tuk parking, polluted water flows at public beaches
This attention about these shells shows shrimps brain thinking

Held in holding cells after a tip off for bleaching coral in your backyard, well blow me over, just when you think you've heard it all. A small fine and warning would be sufficient in any logical country but not in the land of WTF. Yet Thai peodophile rapists roam free, actually lost for words...

So if you find a cute coral on the shore and pick it up and decide to take it with you as a souvenir,  is it illegal?
