A Myanmar crepe seller and his step-mother are seeking legal help after he alleges he was abducted and threatened by a man he claims was a policeman from Nonthaburi, a province to the north of Bangkok.
The crepe seller, 32 year old “Mack”, and his step-mother, identified as 50 year old Jamlong, sought a lawyer named “Pong” for help.
Jamlong says Mack was a child when she adopted him. She says he is a hard worker who always helps her. He works selling Japanese Crepes at a mobile stall. Reportedly, Mack had “troubles” with the Myanmar mafia that allegedly ran a protection racket. However, the situation was “tolerable”.
Times changes when the pandemic hit and the situation became less tolerable for Mack, but not because of a mafia.
The stepmother and stepson say their lives changed dramatically last Sunday. They say a man showed up and told Mack he was a policeman from the Bang Bua Thong force. They add the “policeman” arrived in a taxi.
Jamlong sensed something was amiss and rushed out but her phone smashed to the ground. Mack was stuffed into the back of the taxi and taken from Rewadee Soi 7 to “an area” behind Sanam Bin Nam in downtown Nonthaburi.
They allege that Mack’s life was threatened. H was also advised that his mother could no longer help him. Yet, after checking his phone and seeing that Mack’s paperwork was kosher they let him go. But not before giving him some helpful advice to “watch yourself in the future”.
Pong the lawyer says he will be taking up the alleged abduction/murder threat with the police.
