A tweet has gone viral on Twitter stating that a Malaysian man, Amirul Adib has been arrested on 12 December in Thailand for apparently owning a walkie-talkie.

According to his wife’s post on Instagram, it was Adib’s first job as a tour guide in Sadao, Thailand. He has never been out of the country, hence you can imagine the excitement he has for his new job. He even had everything planned out, including what kind of food he wanted to eat there!

ADIB MANGSA KEADAAN Adib pertama kali kerja menjadi pemandu pelancong dan pertama kali pergi keluar negara.Excited buat passport. Adib dah fikir nak makan kat Hatyai tu makanan sedap2. 14.12 – Bertolak ambil pelancong di Perak terus menuju ke sempadan. Dah lepas border semua lepastu dekat Sadao ada roadblock. Adib kena tahan sebab Walkie Talkie. Then Adib call yg bawa satu lagi kereta supaya sorok Walkie Talkie. Adib ingat kes ni kecil boleh settle. Rupanya kes ni berat. Lagi berat dari bawa pistol. 15.12 – Masuk penjara disana. Sampai sekarang masih disana..Nak jamin Adib kena ada 400k Bath / 51k Malaysia. Harga tinggi sebab Adib bukan warganegara Thailand. Adib disaman atas 3 kes :- 1. Walkie Talkie 2. Pas pelancong 3. Permit kenderaan Sepatutnya kes diatas , syarikat yang Adib bekerja patut tahu sebelum masuk negara orang. Sekarang ni yang duduk dalam penjara Adib , dah la pertama kali masuk penjara , negara orang pulak tu. Sebab semua kes tu jatuh ke Adib sebab dia pemandu pelancong. Boss Adib ada bagi duit tapi tak banyak hanya setengah sahaja bkn separuh. Boss kata dia tak mampu kalau banyak sangat sebab perniagaan dia baru berjinak 2 tahun lebih.. Jadi sekarang ni kami dah ada separuh dari 51k dan nak cari lagi separuh. Kami nak minta jasa baik semua untuk bantu Derma Kilat walaupun Rm 1 itu dah memadai.

On 14th December, Adib drove his customers from Perak, straight to the border of Thailand. After passing the border, there was a roadblock in Sadao.

This was where he was detained because he was discovered to be in possession of a walkie-talkie. He thought it was a case that could be easily settled, but he was wrong. It’s apparently even worse than smuggling a weapon into the country!

Adib was jailed the day after and has been there to this day. His distraught 22-year-old wife said that 400,000 Baht (RM51,000) would be needed to bail him out as he is not a Thai citizen and his boss could not cover the whole amount.

According to the post from Adib’s cousin, he was arrested due to three reasons:

1. Walkie Talkie
2. Tourist Pass
3. Vehicle Permit

If you’re confused as to why owning a walkie-talkie can land you in jail, it’s because it apparently might disrupt the frequencies used by the country’s authorities and military.

It was informed that half of the amount has been paid by Adib’s travel agency company. There is still quite a large amount that they require to get him back to Malaysia.

If you are willing to chip in and help out, you can contribute to:

We hope everything goes well and Adib comes home safely!
