Electronic monitoring devices considered for Don Mueang, Phuket airports

After achieving success at Suvarnabhumi Airport, the authorities are planning to use electronic monitoring devices at the capital's Don Mueang International Airport as well as at the Phuket International Airport in a move to prevent tour guides and taxi drivers from harassing tourists.

A source from the Airports of Thailand, said the authority would seriously consider using these devices, especially since the Probation Department's deputy chief Kasem Moonchan's has said that none of the 106 cases they had been used on since March had violated their probation or repeated the offence.
